Which headlights are these?

I'm new to the forum and BMWs but I've been researching alot this past week about upgrading my headlights as the are a bit cloudy and the "eyebrow" inside the headlight is yellowed.

My car is a 2011 E91 with halogen headlights housings, which makes it LCI i presume.

Questions:
1. Can i use the pre-LCI halogen headlight housings pictured below on my 2011? (pictured car is a 2007)

2. I'm trying to find these headlights pictured below but all i find is the ones with the amber reflector, not like the clear pictured.

3. Will the black line tail lights fit my car?

Those headlights in the picture are euro pre-lci xenons. They COULD fit your car with work. The tail lights won't fit.

Gotcha on that tails, thanks.

So is there a halogen version of those? also if i were to get a pair of the pictured headlights, that means theres wiring and coding to make them work correct?

Yes there's halogen versions. They are in my opinion better looking than usdm pre lci halogens but still don't look great. You can buy a new set for $400 on ecs. The xenons need wiring and coding, but there are diys. If I were you I would just get a new pair of lci halogens, you can find them for cheap.

So just to clarify, these will fit a 2011 LCI e90 correct? ECS says it fits the pre-LCI
