Awesome, please keep us updated.

I would love if these would be an "easy" swap. I have factory HID's, that is the major question as to whether the connections will work.

These are looking better and better as more pictures come out. Looking forward to seeing the quality once tested.

I agree, however I think the current price-point is a little steep.

Re: 2011-2013 guys - have you seen these on eBay?

Well, the lights arrived, and here are some photos of them, and this is what I could figure out.


1. The lights are based on the factory HID version of the headlights, not the halogen reflector headlight housings.
2. The plugs appear to be the same as per the factory HID headlights, eg, a single 3 pin plug for both the low and high beams. It appears that the stock reflector housings have separate plugs for the low and high beams and they use 2 pins.
3. The HID projector on these aftermarket lights uses a standard H7 sized bulb, so it would be easy to find bulbs for them. It looks like you can fit regular H7 halogen bulbs or HID bulbs.


So, if you guys can chime in, and confirm if these lights can fit onto car with the stock reflector housings, or would these only work as an upgrade to cars with the factory HID headlights?


It appears, looking at photos of the stock housings these may only work with cars with the factory HIDs. I may be wrong, but have a look.


This photo shows a H7 bulb in position.





Photos of the projector, it is bi-xenon, so functions as both low and high beams.





3 pin plug for the low\high beams.



Turn Signal and Parking light\LED DRL plugs





3 pin plug for the leveling motor, may or may not have this feature in your car.





Connectors on the other headlight.





Bottom of the light showing where you would attach the ballast.

One question I have for cars with the factory HID headlights, are they self leveling, eg, as you go up/down hills, etc, does the aim automatically adjust?

Or when you go around corners does the beam pattern adjust with it as well?

We need your friend to try these out with only halogen bulbs first. Really just to confirm that the low and high beam harnesses inside there work like OEM. Also to see how the DRL function works.

I think only the summit 2014 and up have tracking HID's

What is the factory HID for our cars H11?

The 11-13 HID bulbs are a D1S, so unfortunately it doesn't look like the factory HID's will fit those housing.

I've never replaced a factory light? Is the housing/placement different than what is shown?
