Question New BMW LED Headlights on older E71 or E70 - retrofit fitment query

I am planning on selling my OEM LED headlights from my 2013 X5M however, I am nor sure if they will fit the older E70 or E71 vehicles. I have heard about a retrofit in Europe but not sure about US.

Can someone please advice. Thanks!

I performed the retrofit and they will fit. Not a simple plug and play though, new harness, spray washers and also FRM2 module needs to be replaced with FRM3 module. And of course coding.

You should be. Having gone from xenon to LED, it's a huge difference in brightness at night. And the halos during the day are so much brighter

I bleieve the rest of the parts are less than $400. What I am selling is two complete LED headlights with all bulbs and computers. The wiring and harness and the washers are unfortunately not included. Thanks
