Seeing these on eBay lately:


Does anyone think it's even possible/compatible to put these in the USA model?

I saw them too. I honestly think they are likely plug and play. It'd be nice to see the connectors on the back. The underlying controls I would think would be similar between low and high beam.

Yes agree with the above, what am i missing, why do you guys need to change your headlights?

I doubt it will work. The North America version has just single wires for the turn signal and headlights, along with a high beam wire. I'm willing to bet the progressive signals have either multiple wires connected to an ECU, or a CAN bus connection. Here's what The non-NA version looks like.

Those headlights probably have the matrices that dim in with on coming traffic. You would probably buy them and not be able to control them at all. You would have to custom wire them to make them work like regular led headlights best case scenario. I seriously doubt the left the programming for the automatic projector headlights in our cars so you could just plug and play.

Non-USA cars got projector headlights instead of the reflectors. I think they look 1000% better than ours. I also wonder if they are functionally better.
OK makes sense, crazy why they do things like this but I understand it could be a legal issue in your country.
