Hi everyone. I want to actually do a reverse swap. I want to remove my factory 2012 HID headlights and put in Halogen housings and then use LED bulbs.

Everything I have read says this can't be done. Does anyone have any information that shows it being possible?

I ask because there have been things on other vehicles that I have been able to figure out, even when it wasn't supposed to be possible.

But since this swap requires removing the front bumper, I figured I'd ask before removing the bumper, buying parts and trying to make it work.

Welcome to the forum!

I’d say anything is possible when modding these cars. It just takes time/effort.

Curious why you want to remove your HID lights...?

Thank you. Looking forward to getting to know some people and learn more.

I want to use LEDs for a couple reasons. First and foremost because of the output compared to an HID is much better. 2nd, it's cheaper to replace an LED bulb.

3rd, I have my own brand of LEDs that I run in my other cars and the output and beam pattern is tremendously better than these HID headlights.

Very cool!
