The headlights bulbs are actually SMDs mounted on several control modules, screwed and located at the back of the headlight.
The LED modules are fully serviceable, just like OEM, if that's your question.
The following video shows how to dismount them:

Shipping times will probably vary based on your location. Pressing the option that says "shipping from the US" shows it would take 4-13 days, but that option costs an extra ~$150. The free option simply states they'll come within 6 weeks from China. Since the seller appears to be Chinese, I'm going to go on a limb and say that I highly doubt they'd observe black Friday and would post any discounts then. Might as well just order them now if you want them anytime soon.

Not sure why you think anyone here would know that. Message the seller and ask.

I used to work as the UNECE regulations team, and to be frank, DEPO products are actually categorized in the high tier/quality area when you compare with other Chinese companies.

Just so you guys know, DEPO is a company from Taiwan, and was sued by Daimler AG for patent related issues not long ago. I'd say if they are getting sued by the big boys, it means that their stuff are either too good or too competitive.

Though DEPO doesn't sell the stuff directly, the distributors however, does see profit in black friday sales, should keep track on the official dealers.

If not, just wait for 11/11, the eastern version of black friday. Normally a 15-30% off

I was hoping depo had come out with LCI headlights awhile ago as they promised but its been a couple of years overdue already.

I will definitely be waiting for this 11/11 thanks for the heads up!

OP thank you for posting cutoff pics.

FYI, I came across a posting on AliExpress and the seller posted a video showing cutoff (at the end of video)

If you follow the product link that OP posted, there is an option to choose "For Original Xenon" or "For Original Halogen"

No mine was a 2016 LCI, so it came with halogens. Let me know if you do get the lights for your adaptive xenons because I am picking up a 2014 335i soon with adaptive, down the line I would like to fit these headlights on it as well.

Yes I know but that does not stipulate adaptive or not

One headlight is bad

I got unlucky and the seller ended up sending me one headlight with a inside piece not even with the other headlight

I talked to them about sending a replacement and they said that I'd have to put a deposit down and they'd send a replacement and said I'd have to pay shipping for the headlight back, but the return shipping was very unclear, you can try talking to them yourself but honestly it's what I expected from aliexpress. I actually picked up a 335i, so for now my family is just using the 328i for errands and stuff, might take them off and sell them.
