DK - not sure which headlight you have. If you want to open them up again, we'll be happy to swap the 8X for you with the 9X you have free.
That's a start I suppose, but actually pre-LCI's require even more trimming than LCI. The LCI's little ring and shroud at least sits more forward, whereas the pre-LCI's do not have the luxury of the more open area on top. I really have no idea how much must be cut on the pre-LCIs to fit the 9x. It can't possibly looks good up-close.

I don't even understand why you guys do it that way either, when 8x literally fits perfectly, with no further modification necessary. Is there a pre-LCI E60 you guys have done with 9x in the Bay? I am going up later this week, and I want to see it.

You got the replacement rings? Let me know whenever you're ready. Seen on fb, you've been travelling a lot.
