Anyone get these aftermarket headlights yet?

So I was browsing thru Aliexpress looking for my usual cheap Volvo parts to fix my fleet of early Volvo's when I decided to look up F25 and came across a few new postings of led headlights. The price isn't bad as they're really the only aftermarket ones I've been able to find to replace my Halogen. Has anyone else come across them also is anyone running them?

I personally will be ordering a set in about a month or so.

Do they need any coding to work properly? BMW lighting systems are notoriously complex.

According to the person I talked to no. But I assume just like when you do led's in halogen you will have to turn off bulb fail check which I've done with bimmercode

And it should say 2014. It was not until 2015 that the lights touched the grill.

I'm so curious if these are actually as "plug-and-play" as they're advertised to be.

Most likely some coding will be required... and I've never installed any aftermarket headlighting systems that didn't require a substantial amount of "adjustment".

These looks nice! If they offer taillights, I will try them out today! Please keep us updated in the headlights and let me know if anyone finds any taillights!

These look like they are cheaper than original BMW parts. i noticed today that the DRL on my driver's side is very dim compared to the right. I'm assuming that the fix is a whole new assembly (I have the mid range lights, Xenon, but I think the ring may be LED).

He is right. Prod Date started in 2014 for LCI and the Germans do not use MY2015. They use prod date.
