M340 Laser Headlights

Does anybody know if these will be able to be added aftermarket in the US? I'm getting my M340i with the basic non-laser headlights delivered soon and wondering if I'll have the option to replace w the laser ones down the road?

Didn't care for the rest of the items that came in the executive package that ticks the box for the laser option. Also, all the M340's for sale by dealers in my region seem to all spec their vehicles with non lasers too for what it's worth.

You’ll probably need to buy headlights, maybe modules and coding to get it to work. I’m guessing it’ll end up being a $10k job or thereabouts including labour and stuff.

They are only on the high beams. I have them on my M340 but they hardly get used.

Ordered mine with Laser headlights. In my opinion it's all about the design of DRL, The laser headlights with the DRL look like the eyes are more alert, defined, awake and meanier. Makes the main light beam pop.

Without the lasers, the LEDs headlights look like eyes which are ready for bed, 'Sleepy hollow".

Order from the factory with Lasers as lasers aftermarket install is just too expensive.

Agreed. I hate the bottom half DRL that comes on the non-laser models. It just doesn't look right to me. It's especially bad on the X5.

But then again they did manage to get suckers like me to pay extra for the laser lights when I don't really need them.

Lol. I agree about the DRLs. But atleast, it isn’t as bad as the base model ones which only have a tiny strip that looks like an afterthought.

It's stupid how you couldn't spec the laser head lights separate. Watch, they'll make this an option for the 2021 MY's or something
