Not sure if the Alpine solution is going to work.

I'm assuming you have the standard halogen headlights on your 128i? If so, I don't think there is any simple solution. If you can find used HID lamps on eBay or from a totaled 1, you might be able to swap them in and have a dealer pay to get the coded to work on the car (I think...), otherwise the only non-OEM option that I know of is the DEPO headlights. I'll try to find a link and post it in here...

Here's one such link, if you google "site:1addicts.com depo" you'll come up with a bunch of different threads on these HID upgrades. It appears that JLeviSW.com sells the kit.

Thank you Kamal for the info
