FINALLY! Retrofitted LED Headlights on my f36 (f32, f8x)

I really miss out on the LED headlight option (lighting package) when I pick up my f36.

A year later and help from marius76 and a buddy of mine who was a mechanic for Bmw for 3 years, my f36 is complete in my eyes

I bought custom harness from marius76 . Routed power from the trunk fuse to the right headlight and power from the fuse box inside the hood for the left headlight. Overall the installation took about 5-6 hours.

Coding was a pain but figured it out. U need Esys and insta-rheingold programs.

Anyone located in OC/LA, I can direct to you to my guy for installation and I can help with the coding.
