Your best bet is to find used oem pre-lci HID headlights, ballasts, bulbs. You will have to code after the swap. Total cost will be upwards of $800. You can do it cheaper with aftermarket headlights but those are all crap.

If you do go aftermarket, make sure you get ones with projectors.

Do NOT get ones without projectors.

Your best bet is to go OEM. The after market ones they got out there do not compare to BMW ones. If you go OEM, conversion will cost you between $1,000-$1,500 depending on how lucky you get and which ones you go with.

NOTE: No need to code if you have a good set of Canbus ballats.. I did not have to code anything and I don't get errors.
