Facelift sedan xenon LCM question

Title should say xenon, not bixenon. Tried changing but it didn't stick.

Do I have to replace the LCM if installing 02 325i xenons on an 02 325xi with halogens, or can I just have the dealer flash it?

If the flash is enough, will that preserve highbeam halogens with the stalk out?

you can have the dealer flash it...depending on your dealer, they might charge you 1/2 a unit of labor for the flash.

reflash is fine, it may, may not. i believe for 02s, early 02 models are single xenons, after that they are all bixenon (so you will lose the high function)
