New car!

Hi guys!
Got my 116i about 2 months ago and I absolutely love it! Big improvement from the Citroen I had before it! Only plans I have so far are to get xenons put in or at least change the bulbs to xenon look ones and get a new exhaust to make it sound a bit meaner! Lol Other than that I love it!

Congrats
Nice looking ride.
Xenon Headlights do look better. I think there are also LED version out now.
It would be worth looking into full replacement units (EBay) as you then get the angle eyes.
Those could need to be coded by a BMW dealer.

And they do light much better too, if that counts.

Yep. The full LCI snout included.

Provided they accept returns. Unless I missed a breaking news, factory xenon headlights (or is it a bespoke, "craftsmanship" solution being meant?) are almost impossible to retrofit: many tried, a few (if any) succeeded. BMW officially declines the retrofit. AFAIK

Let them look, but never light: those custom xenons are blinding and extremely annoying, incidentally.

Haha woah I know where to go for the info! Thanks yeah I agree the xenons are stupid bright! I hate them myself on other cars. Just looking for something to take the dull yellow effect away but I don't want to cause any errors so I'll look into it a bit more. Lol
