I found a supplier in europe: http://www.leebmann24.de/scheinwerfe...117419633.html

But also my question will it fit in a F30 halogen ( Plug and play )

Aftermarket is also available:
Direct plug and play with F30 Halogen models.

Thanks for the post, looking at doing this for my M4, helps that I know a friend that codes. This is definitely helpful. Any issue since the install?

Quick question guys, a friend of mine has a 118i F20 LCI with Halogen headlights. If he wants to install the LED Headlights from BMW is it Plug n Play with some minor coding? Or are there any barriers to completing this?

Has anyone done a video on doing this install?
I have a 2015 328i xDrive (F30?) US model.
I currently have the Halogens and would like to go up to at least the Xenon and perhaps the adaptive LED headlamps.

If no video, can someone break down exactly what parts and wiring harnesses I need, and if I need to remove the front bumper, etc?

So my current understanding on how to install a F30 LCI headlight on a pre-LCI F30:
1. You need the LCI headlights which run $1.5K to $2K from various vendors online
2. A conversion harness is needed(?) (see http://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/sho....php?t=1236659)
3. Coding is required (marius76, http://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/sho...9&postcount=44)

If someone could provide details for #2 and #3, that would be great

How can I tell if I have pre-LCI?
Does marius76 or anyone make the harnesses still?
Does anyone sell a coding package? I've never done coding in any car and have no knowledge of how to do so.

pre LCI means F30 produced before 07/2015

Yes, I can make such harness

coding can be done remotely. You will just need decent laptop with wifi and ethernet coding cable.

Hi I'm considering the LED upgrade on the rears only.
Is it simply plug and play?
Any suggestions where to go in UK/Europe for parts?

It is very straightforward, but not plug and play. I had zero experience with coding (and limited set of hardware tools) and did both the hardware install and software coding in 4 hours.
