E70 Headlight

I have a 2007 X5 4.8L and the headlights are terrible. I've had them buffed, restoration, etc. and they never look quite right. Now they look down right nasty as I haven't had them touched up for a few years and they're very cloudy and scratched up.

I looked to see if I can replace them at my local BMW and they will let them go at cost, $1100 a piece (I know a guy there)! I also looked on my local Craigslist and eBay. One on Craigslist is $330 for the left side, but the model is a 2011.

My question is, will any E70 headlight from the years 2007-2013 fit in my 2007 X5 4.8? Are they interchangeable as long as they are E70?

Thanks

If they are LCI then you will need to have them coded in. It also won't work of you have halogen head lights and are trying to fit Xenon

My SAV is xenon.

The other car on craigslist is a 2011, thats all I know right now. It says that my car was built in 7/2007.

The one on Craigslist is $330 for the left side, the model is a 2011 will that be ok for my car or you cant know for sure? It looks like it would.

The headlights are different. The 2011 is the LCI model. You can check realOEM to be sure.

That's a LCI headlight and it will not fit unless you do a full retrofit of both headlights, ballast, LED controler, new FRM and coding.

Thanks for the help!

I'm assuming doing, "a full retrofit of both headlights, ballast, LED controler, new FRM and coding," would cost a pretty penny?

Since my X5 is a 2007, which model year would fit? 2007, 2008, and 2009?

It will fit in any E70 as long as you retrofit everything, I think I spent like $1500, with mostly use parts from Ebay
