Thumbs up tii 1er Convertible with LCI Xenons

Recently retrofitted LCI Xenons to my car which came with stock halogens.

One pic I snapped with my iPhone.



Will post more as I take them

Well hopefully at that markup % it would only cost 1-2k or so to retrofit here in the US...

Always wanted them as well.. Good looking!
