Post E60 Pre-Lci to LCi headlights- Specific Question

Hello All-
I have tried to search and can't find this answer. It appears the headlight swap threads includes doing the tail light swap for LCI....and I only want to do headlamps. This would be Adaptive Xenon Pre-Lci to LCi...I can't find a single thread on just making headlights work. Assuming I have lights, ballasts, adaptive modules... basically ready to plug in...
1. is there any specific retrofit cables for just headlights?
2. Seems coding can be optional for headlights?

If anyone can answer these, or if they have done just the headlights....would be great.

yes it is entirely possible to do just the front lights, I've done a few members front light upgrades so far...

I can get pre lci to lci retrofit cables manufactured

coding is definitely required, without it your new lights are at risk of being damaged very quickly
