Here is a pic of the car I am thinking about picking up.

I've literally got almost everything you need in that same exact color up for sale right now and would be happy to do a package deal. I just completed an LCI M-Sport conversion to my SGM 335. Here's the thread with all of the parts (I'm sure shipping would be the hardest part):

Part two: if you decide to do an LCI Conversion, yes the LCI Xenons plug right in and functionally work (except for the three orange leds that most people code out) anyways. That said, the headlights will throw 'bulb out' codes until it's coded out. Just keep in mind that LCI Xenons are 2-3x more expensive than pre-LCI Xenons since you will have to source ballasts, led turn signals, AHL modules, bulbs and a clean pair of housings (trust me I just found this out). Here's a link to my conversion so you can see what it looks like:
