Upgrade to LED headlights

Post by chesterflaps » Wed Jan 10, 2018 9:39 pm


I have a 2017 LCI2 118d sport and wish I’d paid extra for LED headlights. The halogen beams are horrendous!

Does anyone know if it’s possible, easy and cheap to upgrade to LED? I’ve seen there are LED bulbs available but not sure if they’re worth changing to.

Does anyone have any experience of just changing halogen bulbs to LED?

Upgrading to the 'proper' LED headlights and LED coronas isn't cheap and probably not worth the hassle.

Correct me if i am wrong but there are a number of sensors that change the pitch of the headlight etc.

Sure I read somewhere someone had done an older e92 with genuine parts and it was in excess of £2500 to retrofit.

Be cheaper to chop the car in for one already specced with LED lights I think - or swap yours to LED bulbs but live without getting the same look :/
