It seems (based on a few responses) that they are not plug and play but with a small mod they can be 100% functional. I can do any re-wiring if needed.

I found a set with a good pricing but they are stripped. I do have the bulbs available for the new headlights but not sure if the 2008 ballasts will fit the new headlights. Can anyone confirm if they will fit?

All that you would need to do is rewire the pins for the LEDs to come on, nothing major.

Did your 2008 come with HIDs from the factory? If so you can reuse your ballasts and bulbs

Nice to hear!

Mine came with HIDs from factory. I already contacted the seller for a shipping quote.

Just got mine at a good price but came without a harness or cable.

Can anyone help me determine the missing patch cord part number? If anyone has these, please pm and see if we can work something out.

Please refer to the pics below. It looks like I am missing a harness (Pic 1) that connects to the grey plug on the lower left area. This is in comparison to the old headlight (Pic 2). Also, help me determine if I am missing something else. Thanks!!!!!!

Hi!

I went to Sewell website and got the following picture.

It looks like I am missing the following parts: 81144D and 81125 for each headlamp.

Can anyone confirm this? Thanks again!

I purchased both headlights used via eBay along with new D4S bulbs, a ballast (one of the headlights came with a ballast), and new covers since the 2 sellers I purchased the headlights from didn't include any covers. Total cost = $1200. I'm hoping to sell my old headlights for a couple hundred on eBay, so that should bring the total cost down.

If anyone is wondering, it was obviously not plug n play at first. I had to splice and relocate wires on the harness connector to get the LED strip to work. Also, the reason the high beams aren't functioning as DRLs is because I had my dealership disable them.

Sorry for the closeup pics. I took the pics using my iPhone so when I backed up anymore than I did all the camera would show is a ball of light on each side. Also, the LED strip is not as yellow as the pic makes it seem. It's actually white with a very slight bluish hue.

EDIT: Don't let the photo deceive you. These are actually the LEDs at 50% brightness. They didn't look nearly as bright as the iPhone camera made it seem.

These are also the LEDs at 50% brightness, taken less than a minute after the first pic. You can clearly see what light does to the iPhone's crappy camera.

This is a few weeks afterwards once I figured out how to get the LEDs up to 100% brightness. The passenger headlight at 50% brightness, the driver headlight at 100% brightness (they're now both wired for 100% brightness BTW).

FYI - I explain the correct wiring on page 7 of this thread.
ok so i got ebay headlamps and the leds dont turn on they flash 3 times when i turn the car on thats it.. so if i relocate the green wire will the leds finally turn on AND be at !00% and thats it im done? i dont have to splice or touch any red or black and white wire besides green and skinny black?

Default a little new to this

i am a new member to this so i apologize if i ask a dumb question. I recently converted the head lamps to the sewell conversion, has anyone been able to successfully convert the LED's as DRL ? i have heard different rumors from splicing to running a simple relay, could someone be nice to clarify, thanks !

Do you tap the wire or just relocate them?

It's all one harness. The bulb socket for the turn signal is on the same harness as the LED connector with the cap.

That part should be all you need.
