Type of headlights?

I'm not clear on the whole headlight type discussions. I have a 2012 128i, but I think they changed later in 2012. So, my questions are: what type do I have now, and is there a pnp mod to upgrade them?

If the attached is your current headlight then you have the most current LCI headlights. The version before that did not have the eyebrow.

You could upgrade to Xenon. But I have read its a lot of work and money.

Yes those are what I have and I also have a 2012 '28. It's LCI Halogens.

Look up the Cosmetic threads or DIY threads there's a ton of info there for retrofitting Xenons. I have not seen pics yet though.

Mine are not "angel eyes" headlights, btw. Am I right in thinking they switched to that later in 2012? Anyone know if that's an easy upgrade?

The xenon/angel eyes were an option, not standard on the 128i.

Oh I hadn't realized you could get these w/out angel eyes.. The eyebrow LED is a nice addition though.

My 2011 128i has xenon/Angels, but no eyebrow.
