2012 Stock Projector Headlights ?

Hey guys l have the stock projectors and as much as I like them, I'm not a fan of chrome.

At some point in the future I would like to either buy another set, open them and paint them black.

Or I could buy a set of the halogen headlights and do a retrofit. Question I have about this is, is it possible to go from the projectors to the halogen housings without wire modification?

I haven't checked out the lights on mine to see what kind of connection the projectors have.

Re: 2012 Stock Projector Headlights ?

I went went the SRT headlights on my 2011. Plug and play. I hear it is very hard to open them up to paint them. I got my SRT headlights from rock auto. Paid about 1000 for the pair. I was able to sell my old headlights for about 700 on ebay. So 300 total for the upgrade. Was a little nervous about pulling the front bumper but it was super easy after watching a video on the inter web. At that time I also installed the SRT grille.

Yeah I like me some plug n play stuff, but I also love customizing lol... I'll just have to see later one.
