    Hi everyone, has anyone tried to retrofit the new facelift headlights to 12-16 cars?
    I know the bumpers are done widely, but its a bit incomplete without the lights. direct plug and play?

    from what i've read, they are not plug and play. they have different adapters.

    also the bumper isnt exactly plug and play either, the new hood and mounting brackets are different

    however karstyle or unplugged does offer something similar for the older cars

    You don't want to do that. The old headlights are superior in their ability to actually light up the road, especially on low beam. In fact the new headlights were rated poor by IIHS tests. Tesla said they will make improvements but we have not head anything since.

    I am actually wanting to swap the other way, wanna trade?
