great job! Was it easy doing the wiring for the LED headlights? I heard it was difficult to do.

Looks good but would look better if BMW didn't include that silver strip. I don't think it even has a purpose?

To get those headlights to function - what needed to be done? New harness, any coding or modules?

I think it's there for reflectivity - it's pretty weird looking up close - def much more than just a silver strip. It has little reflective segments throughout. They likely need it for the diffraction.

Each headlight has 4 control units and additional new 2014 footwell module and central gateway module are required so total 10 control units plus 2 headlights.
Wiring and coding has to be done we hire a special technician doing these jobs.
