There is an OEM HID option for 2012's. Not sure how close they look to the '13 but it's something to look at.

Looks are completely different.. I have factory HIDs on my '11... Regardless of what you use if you are upgrading to HID there will be other parts you need..

You would need the housings, bulbs and ballasts. As well as a) and adapter to got from the halogen wiring to the ballast wiring, or b) splice. Why not just add an HID kit to you 12 housings? Mine look awesome, and it's a standard H13 HID bulb and ballast set, so it's plug and play.... Clicky click, and call me at that number MON and TUES 10:30-8, WED-FRI 8-8 and SAT and SUN 11-6.

That can be done, I am assuming you have the 4 pin wpt-925 connector like in the picture?

That looks familiar. I'll have to take a look again and get a pic this time.

That's really not a bad price if they are complete, the guys that are converting he f150's are paying $950 for complete housings. So it's very competitive, and maybe the guy would take a grand if you offered him that.

Considering ford wants $600 per side decontented it's a steal for complete heads and then you'll need the harness to go with it.

Here's an additional feature you can add to cut out the LED's on the headlights when a turn signal is initiated. http://youtu.be/g3V6KaRAPOs

I get what he is saying, He currently has factory HID on his 11/12 like I do on mine. He wants the LED accent set up of the 13+ lights. So it should be the same fit correct? and is a simple plug and play since the HID is already there?

No the connections are different, you would still need a harness, it is however a different harness than the halogen cars use to convert

Do they physically fit? Can you change grille head lights and hood over?

Do you have to change bumpers for the grille? Does it all line up like stock? My biggest want is a 13 grille.. Which I know I would have to change hoods obviously.. What else to I have to change for it to work and look right? Hood and grille?

the headlights fit and look 100% stock on the 10-12 nose, not sure about the 13-14 nose conversion as it's not something I'm interested in, but I'm sure it's an easy conversion.

^^^im pretty sure you will need the 13 bumper and grille surround. When us 11-12 v6 guys want the 11-12 gt grille we have to get the gt bumper and grille surround.

Ya I meant the surround as part of the grille. But I like my bumper better than the 13s.
