I want to say the LCI 3er probably has a better LED system vs the F8X, by it being a new design and the idea of it baking in the oven longer.

Why one is 1900 vs 800 is probably due to packaging and production.
Yes, I'm aware the M3/M4 use the same front ends. It seems unlikely that the M3 will ever get new/different headlights. If the M4 gets updated at all, it won't be until MY2018 when it gets its LCI. MY2018 will be the last model year for the M3, so it wouldn't quite make sense to shove new headlights in the M3 for just a single year. And BMW has a precedence on this.. the E9x never ended up with new headlights, even as the standard series coupe got LED upgrades in MY2011.
