2016 GT headlights in a 2014?

I was wondering if you could buy the 2016 headlights and install them in a 2014. I just mainly want the drl "u" and led projectors.

Unless you want to spend a lot of money on oem, they make Chinese versions for ~500.

I've seen them on Ali Express would they work with the stock wiring ? Or will I be getting into a rats nest of shoddy diy wiring?

Get the pair off eBay. Make sure it says it comes with the wire adapter for touring/sport.

Problem with that is almost all of them are Halogen Projectors, not HID and has yellow side reflectors instead of white side reflectors for HID version . The ebay ones are completely plug and play just plug in and go, the HID versions you can now buy conversion adapters to make them 100% plug and play.



Conversion Adapters for the HID version.
