I know it should be very expensive and would probably entail the entire lamp assy, just wondering if anyone knows if it can be done on an 04 325Ci and where to find pricing. Did a search on "adding xenons" and "xenons"and did not find anything.
I had Xenons retrofitted to my 2001 325 Cic. I bought from Umnitza. A few minor problems initially, but Umnitza stood behind the product and it's all good now.
Besides the Xenons, I went for the double halos, matching foglights, the whole nine yards. It costed a lot, but much less than the $2+ that they charge at the dealership.
You would need around $600, plus $100 for optional angeleyes.
As Hack said, you'll need to have the dealership code/reprogram the LCM (light module) so they work properly. The issue isn't the reduced current draw, it's resistance - the xenons have no filament, so they appear to the LCM as a burned out bulb. The LCM reduces voltage and the ballast can't ignite - thats why they flicker.
I'm not a fan of the add-on kits, but to each his own.
