I think the LCI would cost the same amount, may be a little less, since have to replace headlight, headlight module, new module and repin.

If you go for LCI, i think customize your current headlight is better idea.

You need to get LED headlight, headlight module, new central gateway with optic (if your car is CIC), new footwell module (LCI one), repin on headlight connector, central gateway connector, footwell connector and make one new wire for headlight. After then, using Esys to VO code new option to headlight module. Using Ista D with ICOM to taught in new LED headlight, re-program for new central gateway to get Flexray working back, after then using Esys (External Application) to clear all store error. Done. ***128077;***127995;***128077;***127995;***128077; ***127995;

Hoangpham, are you in So Cal? Is there a specific shop you worked with for the headlight retrofit or did you do the work yourself? Very interested in the retrofit but I wouldn't be able to do it myself.

Also, what year is your car?

The headlight we can get around $1500-$1600 for a pair but just base housing, you're need both side module too (4 module each side) so should be around $4000 for headlight with module. Also you're need new frm and zgw with optic (if your car idrive is cic). Also need wiring mapping. The wiring last time someone post on forum is missing alot. You can PM me, i can make it happend for you. Thanks
