Don't know about a retrofit for Xenons. This board is populated with new car buyers not DIY.Would it cheapen the car to add xenon lights to the 2011 528? Is there any brand that anyone recommends or any sort of enhancement to the lights?
I think the car has halogen projectors. If so, it should be easy to retrofit. The best one to buy would be a Philips one. I think Philips are OEM for most top tier luxury brands.Would it cheapen the car to add xenon lights to the 2011 528?

Imagine if leather wasn't standard either.... I now thinking BMW has lost its way...a 5 series without xenon lights standard?
Hey I just read your post about the Xenon lights. I own a 2011 528i it came with Halogen lights. Were you able to change the lights in your car to Xenon? I was wondering if I could go to the dealer to buy Xenon for my 528i or is it not possible to change them? ThanksI contacted BMW Customer Relations to obtain information on replacing the halogen lights. Waiting on an answer. I will provide their response.
It's really easy...when you buy an expensive item like a car, you research the hell out of it and figure out its true cost with everything you want...the Xenon option was readily marked as an option on both BMWs website and the brochure for the 528 back in 2011...BMW does not provide a conversion kit, and my research has determined that no aftermarket kits are recommended. At least the xenon lights are standard on the 2012 528. It was interesting that BMW made the lights look similar to xenon's and did not list halogen lights on the sticker. Very deceptive in my opinion. My dealer has a leftover 2011 528 with halogen lights that lists for almost $60,000. It's been at the dealership for a year. Lessons learned for me, and shame on BMW.
