BMW F12/F13/F06 DIY LCI Adaptive LED Headlights Retrofit

I have retrofitted for a total of $900.

It was completed by changing the PIN of the FRM and headlight connector respectively
and changing the power supply of 15A and added CAN3 from ZGW

From where did you source the LCI headlights?
My passenger side Pre LCI LED has conked off.
Planning to upgrade to the LCI LEDs.
Any help will be appreciated.

I can get used parts cheaply in my country (JAPAN).

If you are planning an LCI headlight
I recommend that you use esys to perform program operations.
Change the LCI year of manufacture and type code.
If the HWEL of the FRM is not black, the FRM needs to be replaced.

This is very much on my list to do, could you provide the pin connector changes for the FRM to the headlights and where did you connect for CAN3?

Can you post before (pre-LCI) and after (LCI) pics? TIA I'd also like to know your opinion on the differences between the two.
