Just got the LCI headlamps/taillights. They look gorgeous!! I want to put them on my working desk and use high heeled girl to clear it )) The price in Germany for the front/rear LCI retrofit is around EUR 3300. I will try to start installing on them Saturday/Sunday. At least I will let you know should we make anything with the wires or not. Will keep you updated, dudes!

just taillights. Since BMW doesn't have any wiring schemes for the LED headlights yet, my technicians are trying to do re-wire it by theirselfs.

Are the tails plug and play or do you need to order has parts like wiring harness?

How did the taillights change?

Looking at the images of the 2013 model, they look identical to our 2012 one

Exactly the same but with a darker tint.

Tail light options

Kinda like this? I had my favorite body shop tint the lights for me. Pics are taken with lights off/on so they remain plenty visible despite the tint. Note the fog / accessory brake light on. Also added a Euro Headlight switch from ECS tuning which allows the built in rear fog lights and dash indicators to function. Completely plug and play.

My tail lights are certainly a bit darker, but that is the look I personally wanted. Let us know if you get the headlights to work... That electrical system on the F01/02 is very complex... See my post under;

Hopefully BMW comes out with a retrofit kit because I was told that the previous 7 series had a retrofit kit for the headlamps. I can't see myself dropping $3000+ on the headlamps, I'll be better off just trading my car in and leasing a 2013 lol.

That does look nicer. Not sure if the retrofit is worth $800+ though...

Truckster, make sure to show us pics! Sounds like you are doing great upgrades to your car

It is a nice, subtle change to the rear which I was looking to do but with parts + shipping it cost $900 + install so I backed off.

Just get the tail lights lightly tinted. Not exactly the same look, but close. Approx $50.00 Go to a local window tint shop.
