Hey,
for front conversion you need a lot of stuff much more than rear also it depends on which engine you've got.
I'll post it later when I'll have some more time because I'm very busy right now and I even don't have time to fit front led fog lights which I've got for 2 weeks time.
Alternatively if you don't want to wait you can do as I did go because there is no information on internet about that go to realoem and compare parts side by side old vs new one. It took me some time but it was worth it.

Hey,
thank you very much ! It worked fine as prelci f21 had xenon and 2 series got it as well . 1 series after LCI have LED led so it was much more complicated to do.
I didn't do that but if you've got a good mechanic he will do that ! Mine did it without problems worst part was front because of that led headlights

Looks amazing

Can you please tell me how much it is cost to upgrade to LCI?

I am really interesting to do it but I am a bit afraid of the programming part since my car does not equipped with xenon headlight.

I'm planning to do this conversion myself for my M135i.
Has anyone got any extra information that could point me in the right direction?
e.g. What wires to cut and splice, what VO codes to change etc...

Any help is good help
I understand this is like 6 years late, but thought it's worth a shot anyways.
