So they ARE LED's correct?

Now -- how can we retrofit them into the M's??

Anyone think it's possible?
cost-effective?

While almost anything on this planet is possible with the right amount of resources, from everything that I've read, a retrofit is not feasible without considerable work.

Yes, they're LED's.

The M-cars did not get them because an entire bumper change would have had to be done. They do look great, however, I like that the M cars don't have them since that differentiates our cars a bit more than the LCI LED's on the non-M cars.

You can go AiB, Lux kit, HID kit, or some simple pop-in GP Thunders for more white than the nasty yellow. Of course, there's OSS too.

Fsarc - yeah, I'm still running the GP Thunders... TBH, they're not that bad and I like them, better than OEM.

I haven't tried the AiB's yet but they're probably the next mod I'll do... Unless I bite the bullet and go with OSS. I just need to see the AiB's in person first.

For $25 the GP Thunders are a great solution...

so with the new headlights
if one of the LEDs goes bad, you replace the entire headlight?
or do they sell the LED as a replacement bulb?

i think i can answer my own question
here is the parts list

part 13 is listed as :

13 Repair kit for LED module TAGFAHRLICHT 2 63117263051

costs $196.30 from Tischer
so that's already $400 just for the LEDs
then you have to find out how to fit them to a non LCI headlight
can anyone with a LCI take some pics of the inside of the headlight?

Well since your info says you're in Southern California, feel free to drop by and check them out on our E92 M3! Just give me a PM whenever you've got some time to stop by.
