Default Newer Model 2IS Headlights on an 06 HELP!

I installed my headlights because i had no other choice because my prior ones broke and did not work at all. With the newer ones i have right now, the LED strip and low beams wont turn on. The turn signals and regular DRLs work. My left headlight is off a 2011 model and the right is off of a 2013 model so i know the LEDs will look different when lit up. My dash didnt light up when i swapped the lights so im guessing my car wasnt AFS equipped. It has been incredibly frustrating trying to find a forum or finding help on how to repin the newer headlights to work on my 06. If anyone can please tell me how to do it or point me in the right direction on how to do it that would be greatly appreciated! A HUGE help would be if someone sent before and after pictures! Please DO NOT send links on how to take off bumper to install headlights, how to transfer ballast, tell me that I need the relay flasher, or tell me how to go from 50% to 100% brightness. I honestly could care less if the brightness is at 100%. I've looked at countless forums but havent found any that show simple directions on which wires to move around. I don't even know if i have to cut wires or just move them around honestly. And also, im not looking into paying money to have them repinned. I called tommy at music box and they quoted me around $260, so as a last resort, if i have to pay to have it done, i will.
Thank you!!

if you would like to sell your old lights, i would be interested in purchasing them. I need an extra set for a retrofit.
