Halo lights for LS?

I'm a newbie to this forum and this may have already been addressed, but I did a cursory search and didn't find a concrete answer. Are the halo headlights installable on the LS? I don't even necessarily need to do the install myself, I'm just wondering if it's possible. If so, could someone point me in the right direction as far as buying the necessary components?

Yes you could buy the RS headlights or even install halos into your current headlights. Check Advanced Automotive Concepts

That option or you can buy eagle eye headlights and install halos in those as well which is what I plan on doing with my LS. RS headlights are not cheap!

They are Eagle Eye's, not OEM RS lights. These are aftermarket halogen lights with halos, so upgrading to HID is an added expense.

Do you currency have halos on your car? Are your headlights silver/reflective on the inside? If yes, you have halogen headlights

I have the most basic LS package without the RS package. But my headlights a reflective on inside. So if I don't have halogen lights, how do I go about getting the headlights with the halos and the ball in the middle? Thanks for the help in advance

Check the market place for a set of used OEM RS headlights. They usually go for around $700. Then you will need an adapter harness. It's all plug and play.

You have halogen with the LS here's options
1.Eagle eye :pro easy install okay projectors cheaper, cons: hid extra more wiring not OEM
2.ACC halos pros: bright led, color options, installation packages,retro fit options , Cons ; harder self install, no projectors without retro fit.
3. OEM RS headlights...pros: factory, balast inside, HIDs, Good projectors, easy install, cons: none you just need Ofers harness

Got my eagle eyes with the hid kit for 470 off ebay. Love them. I could buy half of one rs headlight with the same amount of money.

U have a few options, aac halo lights(u got to crack open your headlight to put them in). Eagle eye head lights (after market version of the actual rs headlight, uses h9 bulb) or try to find the actual rs headlights for cheap and just buy the wiring harness from ofer. I have the eagle eye head lights. I couldn't find a good price within my budget for the rs light. The actual rs head light can go as cheap as $500 a light (and that's cheap) or u got eagle eyes which are both lights for $500. Good luck on whatever u choose

So if I have halogen headlights and get the eagle eye headlights, what exactly does that look light when they are turned on? Do they have the halo with the ball in the middle like the factory RS headlights?
