I am wanting to do the same thing but want to go complete OEM. Is there specific wiring that needs to be done?

If you can live without the adaptive feature, the conversion is relatively simple. http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showt...non+conversion I did the conversion last year, quite happy with the results.

It should be very similar. As far as I know you just have the extra wires for the eyebrow LED to deal with, unless you go for the pre LCI xenons.

Thanks for the reply!

I wonder if I could find a wiring schematic somewhere on here to assist with that! Would the preLCI xenons fit into an LCI 1 series, and still retain the 1 series front bumper, hood, and fenders?

Yes, the connection points and fitment are identical. I'm going to be swapping pre LCI ADH Xenons for LCI ADH Xenons in the spring.

As for a wiring diagram, it's simple; you just jump the wires. BMW also sells a cable. See this thread: http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=560844
