Can you provide some details on the installation? Did you install the headlights yourself, or did someone else do it for you?



I modified my 2001 BMW 530 to retrofit Bixenon projectors so I though I may tackle this. Lightwerkz said these are the pieces needed:

It's $600 in parts, $1500 in labor to install them on their end seems steep!

I didn't feel comfortable opening up headlights since it's not as simple as unscrewing a few bolts, so they did the retrofit, and as for installation on the car a place that I know near me did it for a reasonable price.

Thanks for the info

I talked to my Indy yesterday and he is confident that they can install the factory xenons for me. The only caveat is that they will need to code out the adaptive portion otherwise it would be extremely costly. My Indy quoted me 3-5 hours in labor to do the retrofit.

Found a nice pair of Xenons on Ebay complete with ballasts, controller and LED modules for $1000 shipped. Looking forward to getting rid of the yellow flashlights!

I came across a YT video from 2017 showing a Bluestacks Lucky Patcher Kodi 228i with retrofit headlights from a company that makes retrofit headlights for a number of vehicles. I then contacted them to get a quote, which I knew was going to be expensive, and sure enough it was expensive. It was at that point that I decided to go for it, and here are the before and after results:

based on your previous message, there was no mention of headlights or their installation. It seems like there might be some miscommunication or mix-up in the conversation. As an AI language model, I'm unable to provide specific details or instructions on the installation of headlights or retrofitting projectors.
