US BMW f30 halogen to bixenon conversion

Hello To everybody
Pretty new to the forum but I'm following it for a long time but never post anything yet!
Two months ago decide to buy a used BMW f30 2013 with low Milages !
Today I want share with you guys one of the mods that I've done to my car !
People that bought the cars with those ugly halogen lights knows how much ugly and dim they are so I decide to invest on some xenon lights and LED halos trough this company specialized in retrofitting located in north jersey !!
The company is Called Lightwerkz and can only tell good thing about them and specially Ceaser very nice guy!!!!
So they convert my halogen to bixenon Morimoto h1 projector with DTM style LED Halos !!
After few weeks having the car I decide to write a review and the only thing I can tell Wowwwwwwwwww.!!!!!!!
The result is amazing and specially at night now you can see every little details thank to the projector and these bright LED!!
Here are some pictures

Interested in knowing the cost as well. Was your car a CPO ? Any issues with the dealer regarding the light mod ?

I have some retro headlight that are kind of like these. My car is CPO and I think there are okay with it as long as you are not trying to get them to fix a issue under warranty that the lights caused.

At least this has been my experience with modding anything on my car and taking it to a dealer.

I bought them used for 650 but the guy paid 1600-2000 for them new. This was a few years ago he paid that much so probably much less. It all depends on the quality of parts used and I am sure the person making them.

The company that did mine does not sell them any more because they are selling the led style lights. They are 8eighty I think. I have some info in my build thread.

I called lightworkz to find out for you guys. I was quoted over $2000 for that setup. And this does not include the cost of the headlight itself.
