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....
