Headlight help

I have the standard headlights with a fog lights. They sucks. The light is way too yellow. What can I do? Can I just buy led bulbs? I like the halo but I don't know if I can do that after market with standard head lights.

The head lights are on by default. Can I turn that off? It looks better with the fog lights only on but every time I get in I have to turn off the head lights and turn on the fog lights.

Any advice? Options?

Do you know how much they cost? Would a dealer put them in? Or could I put them in? I was not sure if I could swap them out after/

member 2ssrs makes a harness for a plug and play swap..

it's pretty simple to do.. the big issue is the RS lights are pricey

Yes you can change them out yourself. You just need to buy the non-RS to RS harness from gen5diy.com.

If you were to buy the headlights from the dealer they would be about $850 each.

I bought a set of Eagle Eyes and a HID Kit of the bay for $450 together and installed them. They look just as good as the RS lights.

Those aren't OEM RS lights.

yes these are eagle eye headlights. if you do go this route just make sure you get the aac inverters. ive had eagle eyes for almost a year and a half now and reading on the forums the passenger side halo has a more probability to go out(in which it did) but im still happy with my purchase and i didnt have to pay $900/light for the rs lights.

No need to get a 'tude man, just stating that they're not OEM so the OP doesn't assume that. Since they're asking questions about lights they could have assumed they were the OEM lights. It's all about helping someone out on the forum, not blacklashing at every comment. Have a nice day.

Your set up looks nice ZK. I like the LED's on the body kit a lot too.
