Is your car is PRE-LCI Halogen?

Aside from that, try this

Before you swap in the LM2,
Access your Light Control Module(The one the car originally came with, and look at PIN 25 and PIN 40 What color is it?

Then on the PRE-LCI connectors for both sides, Look at PIN 4 . Is it the wire the same color PIN 25 and PIN 40 from the LCM?

If they are the same color, this means you just have to ignore the color code, and use the Circuit diagram. That is what I did for mines, I didn't too much rely on the color code because I heard on a certain release of the pdf, the color codes were incorrect.

On the Lcm plug I have pin 25 gray/green and pin 40 gray/blue only.
I have gray/green again on pins 42 and 54 if that helps.
On the pre Lci connector for driver side I have gray/green on pin 4 and no blue/gray at all as you can see in the pic.
On the right side on pre Lci connector I have gray/blue on pin 4 as you can see from the pic and no gray/green anywhere else. Also the small plugs next to pre Lci main connectors the colors don't match on either sides. 06 M5 pre to LCI....-imageuploadedbyag-free1472520706.257414.jpg06 M5 pre to LCI....-imageuploadedbyag-free1472520746.627220.jpg06 M5 pre to LCI....-imageuploadedbyag-free1472520766.607032.jpg06 M5 pre to LCI....-imageuploadedbyag-free1472520777.756245.jpg06 M5 pre to LCI....-imageuploadedbyag-free1472520789.333153.jpg06 M5 pre to LCI....-imageuploadedbyag-free1472520803.269902.jpg06 M5 pre to LCI....-imageuploadedbyag-free1472520813.703305.jpg
I've included pics of the pre Lci I took off the car and the Lci I'm planning to use for your information if it helps.
Is there anyway you can help me from here onward?
Thanks,

Looks like your using the old pdf with the retrofit instructions.

I can't PM,

But this should be the diagram you need.
