Sorry I'm too lazy to search for this but if I want to swap my Pre lci hood, grills, and front bumper to lci, can I still use my Pre lci xenon headlights?

^^Not sure that's right bud. The LCI lights are shaped very differently underneath, so if youre using oem parts (front bumper) you may have a fitment issue.

there are plenty of people who have done the LCI swap and kept their Pre-LCI headlights. Im pretty sure they will work fine.

Ah! My mistake. Thought we were referring to E92. I have both E90 lights as well, they are identical in shape.

I dont think the LCI grills will work on Pre-LCI bumper.
