Yes they just put LEDs for the f12/13 6 series as official accesory.

They have it for the X6 as well but not for 7er. Though LCI rear lamp retrofit kit is available via the dealer.

I'm going to find out through my friend if BMW is going to offer a LCI retrofit kit. Actually I'm heading to a exclusive BMW event tonight with their product management team so might ask someone there.

Man if you ever get ACC to work please let me know. I have been bugging Patrys about that for years now, but too difficult of a mod presently he said! It will probably over 5K but would be a damn nice option to add.

Wonder how well ACC works in a BMW. I used to hate the Mercedes Distronic but love the one in our new SL.

In busy traffic, I just set the cruise to 80 mph and locks itself to the car in front of me until they change lanes. The cruise takes the car to a full stop and emergency braking; you can literally drive for 30+ miles in traffic and never touch the brake pedal, including exiting the highway exists etc.

The one I had in my Lancia was great. BMW also brands it as ACC with Stop&Go so it should also work when coming to and leaving from a complete stop.

Mein Auto: 730d INDVIDUAL LCI LIFT
Facelift navi and headlights

Doing facelift headlamps do I need to change the camera speed limit info or Kafas module on LCI 2013 module?

What are the things I need to replace the car with a pre-lci navi to change on NBT-navi LCI 2013?
Do LCI GRILL FROM NON M SPORT WILL BE FIT IN CAR WITH SPORT PACKAGE M?

Because at this moment I do not have m sport left side grill with night visioon from LCI car.

I have only grill for non m sport package LCI and I want install it in my m sport bumper LCI grill.
Sorry for my english

I want add complete interior from lci cars with LCI TV SCREENS on seats.
I already buy it.

What are the problems with this modification? What I will need additional parts.
VIDEOSWITCH LCI?

Nope, never looked into it. I'll speak with my friend who works for BMW next time I see him. Maybe someone else can chime in.

In order to get FULLY workin LCI LED with Automatic Hi-Beam, you need to change KAFAS, window and interior mirror.

What are the things I need to replace the car with a pre-lci navi to change on NBT-navi LCI 2013?

Nothing. at THIS time it's impossible to install NBT into pre-LCI without getting error with suspension and gearbox.

Do LCI GRILL FROM NON M SPORT WILL BE FIT IN CAR WITH SPORT PACKAGE M?

Yes, it will

Because at this moment I do not have m sport left side grill with night visioon from LCI car.

I have only grill for non m sport package LCI and I want install it in my m sport bumper LCI grill.
Sorry for my english

I already buy it.

I'm not sure you can install it without NBT

VIDEOSWITCH LCI?
You can try videoswitch but I believe it will not help. The easiest way is to plug them in without mounting to existing DVD player in the headreast

When I inquired about the LED headlights, the parts guy at my local dealership asked me if I have $10k, said they'd need to rip out the interior, it's 30 hours of labor, and won't do it because BMW won't allow it.

Thoughts?

I've been quoted 5000euros so $10k does seem to be right (for bmw main dealer rates).

Drop Patryk at Bimmertech a note. I know they offer this as a retrofit.

Should have added. BaranE has had this done. He highly rates the LCI LEDs!
