Do any of you know where I can get a hold of these headlights???

Obviously Ebay but I was wondering if any vendors out there did them? This site is all the way in Hong Kong!!

My car came with non-xenons and is Pre LCI

I'm from the UK so would require right hand drive...

I'd like to believe that no respectable vendor would sell these.

Go big or go home....

Stay away from Ebay, this stuff is junk.

Why not get OEM LCI lights?

Yes..the hood on the LCI cars is not the same as the pre LCI hood.



That's an LCI hood. If you're familiar enough with your car, you'll see the differences.

As said, the hood (and bumper, grilles, etc) were redesigned but the LCI units fit perfectly - headlight slots are the exact same shape. Many here have done the mod.

Yeah, don't forget the rims, hood, bumper, trunk, and tail light retrofit as well, then it'll look just like an LCI. Too bad though, I'm not sure the Gen III I-drive will fit though.

Might be easier of you bought an '09 or '10 E90 though.

can't someone just buy those on ebay and replace the halos with one of the halo upgrade kits that i see alot of ppl on here have...it would involve opening up the lights but again, i see lots of ppl on here have done that too?

(sorry if i got it wrong new to the 3-series)
