Mein Auto: 2013 BMW 328xi
Aftermarket Lighting Package?

So I bought a 2013 BMW 328xi last month, and really regretting not getting the lighting package. I was wondering where can I get OEM lighting package (halo, xenon lights) installed. Does anyone have experience with this and/or know the cost?

Any help would be much appreciated!!! Thanks!!

for just the parts, 800 per headlight. figure about 2 hours of shop time for the install and coding.
you'll need to have the car recoded, and the adaptive function will not work (the left and right turning as well as leveling. IIRC, the car is missing the sensors for that and its not feasible to retrofit those bits after the fact)

You also need the control modules plus the LED/Xenon bulbs, that's another $1K for each side. So you're looking at close to $4K just in parts, that's before any labor or coding.

I understand that it's about the bottom line, but when we first started looking at buying an F30, I was shocked that HID's weren't standard equipment on a BMW!

That was shocking to me, and surprisingly enough, 90% of the F30's on the lot had halogen headlights! We ended up buying a "Demo" 335i that had them and other goodies!

Good luck on the retrofit!
