Swapping front headlights. Help!

I am wanting to swap my 2010 128i non sport headlights as I want halos around mine and they aren't capable of adding them. So I've found a found a set from a 128i convertible that aren't xenon headlights (see attached)Name:  $_20.JPG

They would be a straight swap. Wondering would I be able to put halos on these front headlights even if they aren't xenon?

Also thinking of swapping the rears to (see attached)Name:  jf20g21bbbrtphxar5fttrjrd.jpg

as I have the stock ones. They are from the convertable too. Is it a straight swap to the coupe? I've read there will probably be coding involved?


Thanks any help appreciated.

You could probably add aftermarket halos but would need to open the headlights up and run the wires to the running light bulbs I would think

to be fair its probably a really tall order...Halo's can be found cheap (and I doubt any coding is needed) but you will need to bake the headlights to open them up for the install...potentially may be cheaper to find some Umnitza (forgot the spelling)
