F30 LCI Headlights on F82 ?

Hey guys,

been searching the net and as we all know, the F82 lacks alot of aftermarket parts.

Came across an aftermarket LCI headlight for an F30 for pretty cheap. Was wondering if it would be possible to remove the internals from the F30 Lci headlight and fit it into my BMW M4 headlight ?

By look, the f82 headlight seems slightly larger so i reckon it should fit ? Has anyone tried this ? Original LCI lights for the F82 is way too expensive.

Or would someone be able to tag a company who manufactures aftermarket headlights ? Perhaps they would be able to give some insights.

Regards,
Rocco

This must be your first M car if you think it lacks a lot of aftermarket parts!

Only thing I can think of is FOLEDS but even those just came out. There's a sea of parts to choose from

We will watch Rocco Siffredi's career with great interest.

By lacking I'm mainly referring to the fact that the F30 has aftermarket headlights and taillights and F82 only has original parts

yes FOLED just came out but the LCI taillights are available for the F30 ( aftermarket ) and not the F82 ( for the F82 you'll need to buy original ones )

was thinking about it since the shell of a 4 series headlight is pretty cheap and the aftermarket china LCI headlight for the F30 is cheap as well

if it works out it'll save me a lot since original LCI lights for the F82 are bloody expensive

You're driving a M, treat it like a M. This ain't no M-Sport.
