Full LED (Hella) swap from Halogen lights

Hello everyone,

I'm planning to swap my default halogen lights to a Full LED from Hella. Here is an YouTube video of them:


I'm wondering if there is a complete guide of how do that? I already searched for that, but unfortunately didn't find anything.

Actually what I'm more looking for is a full list of accessories I have to buy to make that work (as I assume it's not plug and play solution).

---

Furthermore, I'm wondering if that's worth a swap. I was also thinking about the Depo Angel Eyes (which are plug and play, fortunately). What are your thoughts BMWers?

A complete LCI LED headlight swap will cost you at least 3k- 5k US $ (Complicated Install)
A pair depot headlights cost 500-600 US $ (Plug n Play)
You be the judge

If money is not a concern so the led. If you don’t want to spend a small fortune get the depo lights. I have depo and they look great.

I am guessing the OP wants the LCI headlights not the Pre-LCI headlights. I am in the same boat. I have an LCI w/halogen and have been waiting over a year for a good 3rd party LCI option.

I went lci halogen to depos with a minor wiring change to get them to work on the lci model. I love them and cost me 400 then 70 for a hids4u kit. Worth every penny.
