    They fit but the only person that I know of that tried it was not able to get all the features of the new lights to work.

    AFAIK the headlight portions worked but the DRLs and the active turning lights did not. I don't think it would take much to get the DRLs working but the active turning lights would take some tinkering to get working.

    Just a thought: You may be able to find aftermarket headlights designed around the new gen's without the additional features. :)
