2013 LED headlights

Does anyone know if the 2013 will have the full LED headlights? If so, would they be the same shape so they can retrofit into my 2012 F10? I love the corona/xenons; but I'd love them to match my 2013 X5M LED headlights more...thanks!

From what I have seen on the BMWUSA website the F10 is not available with the LED headlights yet. May have to wait until MY2014.

From what I know there will be a slight change in shape, possibly requiring a new bumper. There's also additional wiring required making the retrofit not plug and play. BMW actually sells an LED light conversion/retrofit kit for the F12/F13 6-Series. It's pretty involved.

Damn, that's unfortunate...we'll see when the time comes. I just want all LEDs! Lol

Yea it's quite a cost to retrofit, at least on a F01. If you bounce over to our forums a gentleman from Russia just retrofitted his lights at a cost of 5,000 euro. That included the slew of parts, wiring and coding. Not a easy plug-and-play operation.
