Change 2009-2013 headlights to 2014 2015 2016

Hey Everyone, I recently bought myself a 2011 bmw z4 sdrive 35is but I really want the new headlights. I decided to purchase one from eBay to see if it may fit. I haven't received it yet so I can't really help you guys. Does anyone know if it is possible todo so? I have the facelifted M Sport front bumper.

I didn't read all 5 pages. In my 2011, I swapped high wattage LED's in for the halo bulbs, and LED for the amber light as well. Looks and works great for peanuts in comparison. I'm not sure there is much to see in difference otherwise on the LCI headlights - pretty subtle I think?

LUX is one. I think I bought mine from E92 Lighting - https://www.e92-lighting.com/

I ran LUX on my e92. It wasn't as bright as I wanted but that's an issue with the headlamp design. I was just curious if anyone else had success with getting a bright white color using other bulbs.

I was referring to just the halo's from Lux - plenty bright and white. Looks LED like. The lights on my 2011 are bright and look great ... what's the issue with the factory headlights?

I just want to get rid of the yellow look.

I found this thread with photos on LUX headlights. It's a bit old but the lights look great in the photos. I hope this helps everyone. http://e89.zpost.com/forums/showthre...=436680&page=5
