Y not just initially buy the car with the HIDs? It's way more expensive retrofitting them afterwords...

My contact says retrofit for F30 is too expensive and too cumbersome? You should have better spent money upfront;(

afaik, the e90 xenon conversion cost about $1200, so I would be willing to pay $1500

We would be able to do a Bi-Xenon Proj. Retro-Fit into the F30 headlights but unfortunately we haven't created the squared type LED Angel Eyes yet... And putting circular led rings probably wouldn't look right.

We are just adding a proj. into your original headlights, not making new lights. If anyone wants to be a guinea pig and try out the circular LED angel eyes let me know. We would offer you a slight discount.

That's just a concept vehicle design. The real 4 series (sales version) will have same angel eyes as F30 =/ (check the spy shots of it)

The real 4 series will have those full LED/hexagonal lights as an optional upgrade.

Just like the X6, 6-series, 7-series....
