I hope I'm posting in the right section. I have been trying to figure out what is the difference between pre-LCI and LCI headlamps with regards to fitting/wiring/whatever. I've got an LCI Nov-2008 E90 with standard halogen headlamps (but with angel eyes as those seem to be standard on LCI models). I want to upgrade these to projector headlamps, but the only ones I could find on eBay (with the exception of one item) are all for 2005 - 2008 pre-LCI models.
Now what puzzles me is that on a pre-LCI model you can simply swap your headlamps to LCI directly (apparently) - so what would the problem be if I had to do it the other way round? I mean why are all the headlamps listed as "fits only pre-LCI models 2005 - 2008"? If anybody can shed any light on this for me I'd appreciate.
