Did you have a chance to install the headlamps? Truckster mentioned that his installer was looking into the wiring.

Damn, I didn't ordered some electronic sh*t to control all of this LEDs. Part numbers for the headlamps are part numbers JUST for the headlights. Will look for it. AA9999, any suggestions on wiring? thanks in advance

I can. They look great! Good luck on the wiring and take some pics before, during, after

However, if all these modules are needed for the upgrade, we are talking about a serious amount of money. Didn't keep track, but that looks like over $7k for the headlights alone, correct?

WoW! The instrument cluster too!! Very nice. How much did it cost? Also, that must be one heck of a retrofit/re-programming job. Could you please provide details? Thanks.

Holy crap, so sick. What's the part #? I assume reprogramming is done by the dealer or coding? And how many hours needed for install?

Lol you guys are going to make me empty out my bank account with all these mods.

Let me know if you guys find the LCI grille and/or the part #'s for the grille because on realoem.com the LCI grille part #'s are for the night vision grille from the pre-LCI.

Thank you guys for pioneering these retrofits!

Do you mind if I ask what tools you used to code the new KOMBI? I have e-sys and ISTA/D and P.

truckster

Did you finish the installation of headlight? I'm waiting you to finish so I can proof my dealer that it is feasible. I asked the dealer (part section) about the retrofit, and they stated not possible because of the size, which shocked me. Therefore I searched in the net.

Please tell us once finish so I can start by headlights, then tail, and finally the instrument panel.
