The rear lights and that steering wheel are the cats pajamas man! love it! I would love to replace my steering wheel to something along those lines...I absolutely love the feel of the newer steering wheels...same goes for the tail lights!

Did you have the Lighting package (Bi-Xenon headlights) originally?

Amazing!! I want to do the same conversion too! Would you provide some instructions on how to have it done? I'd like to make this my summer project.

Also, was there any need to reprogram things or is it just plug and play?

Personally speaking I love your headlights compared to HID ones.

It's Original ... Say "no" to aftermarket if possible mate.

So did you also use the OEM headlights for the conversion?
I'm guessing you had to change the wiring, but did also have to change the coding?

What do you mean change variant coding? Is it something the dealer can install? Where did you source the lights?
