What's the easiest way to convert e90 pre lci halogens, to lci xenons

Hey guys, I was thinking about buying a set of lci xenons for my e90, I currently have depo halogens. What's the easiest way to do this, I read that there was complicated rewiring required, is there a company that will do the rewiring for me if I send them off, or is there a conversion harness available, can someone please point me in the right direction? I read some DIYs and I don't feel comfortable doing it myself.

the "easiest" is to sell the car and buy one with it. definitely not the cheapest nor most practical though.

you need obviously new xenon headlights

1. buy oem from dealer or buy used oem from forum members --> most costly
2. buy depo headlights from fishcake on ebay, good angel eyes, bad projectors
3. buy umnitza headlights, a lot of bad reviews but it gets the job done

you seriously need to search more man, many many threads that can be found by searching.

all of these require rewiring done by professional or yourself if you are capable. Coding for all these are also required.

I'm talking about oem conversion only, and yes I searched, and found complicated diys, what I'm asking: where can I buy a harness so that I don't have to mess with a diy, these guys offer a harness(SEE BELOW) if you buy their package, I'm trying to find a place to buy the harness elsewhere, or a company I can send the headlights to that will alter them for me.

Go visit HIDplanet.com and do some searching. There are knowledgeable people on that site and that is what the site is for converting LED-HIDs-etc.
TRS is one of the more noted companies that you should contact because that is their core business.
There is NO pnp harness so either decide you need to attack this in a proper manner or abandon the project. If anyone can make a system for your needs it would be TRS...
