    How can I upgrade my sport headlights to the GT led headlights?

    I would like to swap out my headlights on my sport trim for the GT headlights. What parts do I need to make this happen?

    I believe that it has been discussed here before, I think it is cheaper to just go ahead and get the GT, than it is to buy the headlights after and retrofit.

    Headlights are $1100 each x2 , and then would also need the 2x $300 headlight control modules, one for each left and right, as well as the wiring pigtails, electrical connectors, and wiring harness to retrofit.

    $1,100~$1,200 is the price for gen-1 CX-5 LED headlight, gen-2’s should be higher. And there’re (expensive) multiple sensors also needed for AFS!

    Surprisingly all of those prices I gave were taken directly from the 2017 (gen2) CX-5 Parts Catalog...

    Bought those LED lights you see by the fogs and then bought the LED strip above the headlights, installed them myself. Cost around $100

    Alibaba for the fog lights and then Diode Dynamics for the LED strips. They also function as amber turn signals.
