Replacing Base Halogen Enclosure with LED Enclosure?

    Has anyone attempted to switch out the halogen enclosure on a base 2.0 with a LED enclosure like the ones in the premium or GT versions? From pictures alone they seem like it would be plug and play since they're the same size, not sure if wiring will be an issue though.

    To my knowledge there has not been anyone that has swapped out the halogen headlights to the GT LED ones. While they will phisically fit, I do not think the connection is a plug and play matter as the harness is different.

    Darn it, hopefully the harness isn't too much of a difficult replacement if it can even be replaced at all. Seen some HID kits for the 2.0 and figured might as well spend a little more and get the actual LED Headlight housing. Thanks

    The HID kits are you best bet. Right now the LED headlight are very hard to come by as the car is fairly new, not many used stinger parts available. In the event the headlights were available they will not be cheap.

    I paid $65 for my HID lights and I’m liking the way the look for not much money wasted

    Mind if I ask which HID option you went with? Were they professionally installed or did you do so yourself? Thanks in advance!
    P.S. Wouldn't mind some pictures of the lights and how they look if you can post them :thumbup:

    The ones I always recommend are the Sportiva. I have used them on 4 of my cars and have not had any problems, aside from an issue with one bulb, but they were quick and send a replacement without asking too many questions. Currently mi wifes G37 has one of these on the fog lights and it has been trouble free since we bought it 3 years ago. My previous car, M37S, had one as well for 4 years and zero issues. The kit went with the car once I sold it to get the Stinger :D

    Hmm ill look into them, especially if the Morimoto 9005 HID kit is still going for $180 :thumbdown:
