head and fog light swap?

The only things I feel like I'm missing out on are my HID headlights and fog lights w/o the tech package. I have access to "Insurance quality" salvage yard parts and have seen numerous come across my screen, so the question is:

Can I get headlights off another Tesla and plug em in?

Can I get foglights off another Tesla and plug em in?
I don't have any specific knowledge here, but the headlights are likely pretty safe. As long as the ballasts are integrated into the unit (they usually are these days), there's a high likelihood the wiring harness is identical between the two styles for cost-saving purposes. You could verify yourself pretty easily if you know someone with an HID-enabled Model S.

The fog lights are probably trickier. If you have the harnesses required (pretty likely), you might still require a software enable to have them recognized. I'm not sure the vehicle will automatically detect and enable them. The fogs may be more trouble than they're worth.
