Just Bought my First 7 series

Just got my first 7 series!! as goes
2011 BMW 750i with 35,000km
Alpine white with oyster white nappa interior.
M- sport package
Executive Package
Technology Package
Multimedia Package

pretty excited to have this car. but the only problem i have is the headlights. i don't like how there yellowish in colour. Is there any way i can change them to a more of a white isn LED colour like how the 2013 models and onwards are? Will i have to do this aftermaket at a shop or can i buy from bmw canada parts at the local dealership and they install it? will warranty on the headlights still be covered?

Im not a car guy so i can't just buy it from ebay and install myself. ill need to find a local shop or store then get someone to install if bmw can't do it.

And if there is what is the price of each bulb for both headlight and typical installation fees?

Thanks excited to be here!!

Welcome & Congrats!

As far as the headlight issue, some members have purchased MTecs and the results are a mixed bag. Some are error free and some see errors frequently. I would contact them directly as it seems these lights are being continually updated. Good luck & post some pics!

Agreed with SLS... Got it done - M-tec, but the brightness will not be equivalent to the 2013 model... however, it'll be white instead of yellow...
