Funny thing, is spoke to Oracle Lighting the other day, they said they weren't working on anything for the F30 because there wasn't enough consumer interest....

Shame on people who order their 328's without the lighting package. My case, and I'm sure most others, is that the dealers don't ever order the lighting package. $900 seems like such a drop in the bucket, I'm not sure why this is not a mandatory when dealers order cars for the year. When I bought mine in August, even the uber-contented 328's on the lot with $48-50k MSRP's didn't have the option. My last two vehicles had Xenons but I thought it was mainly a looks thing; surely the halogens on a 2012 BMW would be as good or better than those on my last E36? I was sadly mistaken.

Same story here. Off the lot 328i but had the main options I was after. 7 day delivery or 6 to 8 week for headlights. The situation at the time didn't allow me the longer wait. In the end, other cars will get a better picture of your rear tail lights anywho

Keen for these headlights but!

Spoke to them today, these are the 1st prototypes. Consumer ready units are still 1-2 months away and no further info is really available but they're pretty excited about them though

If they are under $150 installed it's going to be sold out perpetually...

I'd be surprised if they are under 4 digits for a set.

not likely, remember, as a factory option, there isnt much added expense to install Xenons rather than halogens plus BMW will have ordered THOUSANDS of assemblies taking advantage of economies of scale. I would expect these to be somewhere south of $2K (if you part out the OEMs with all associated hardware to install, they are almost $5K)
