^ Not any place I know of sells them. Maybe in the Classifieds, someone may have a pair. Otherwise, there's people out there who paint them but charge like $200.

My '12 F-Sport's headlights are black, not sure if it is on all F-sports or on certain colors only.

Ever since I read this thread it made me wanna do it. I finally did it and glad I took the time to do it. For those still on the fence about this. Do it. It's a clean mod. I was afraid I was going to break something or not doing it right. But I did it and it was a success. I however didn't use an oven. I did the whole mod with a heat gun.

I'm pretty sure they switched them to black in the 09 model change

Just did it! Great DIY. Looks cleeeean!!! One thing i'd add is that its a ***** to pry the glue apart, like you reallllly have to scrape and pull. Other than that everything went well. They look sick, bumper is slightly off though, gonna fix that today.

Oh man. I was wondering how to do this. So glad I was searching around the DIY threads. Got my bumper off and everything right now to install my new grill. Perfect timing. Great write up.
