Hey guys I’m doing an insane retrofit for my headlights, I’m using a Lexus 570 housing and putting it into the optima. Tell me what you think. Here’s a poorly photoshopped pic of what it will look like.

Good luck. theres a handful of folks who retrofitted other vehicle lights into our cars. The largest issue they all faced was spacing on the backside not only for the pieces inside the headlight but items in your car that are right behind em. Good luck. Its do able. Love to see a DIY too!

I have yet to do my headlights, but have done the tails, and there isn't much room in those, so I imagine it would be the same for the headlights too. Good luck, and keep us posted!

For those curious, I’m cutting everything out of the oem headlight and custom making brackets and molding to make it look stock. Here are some pictures of the parts.
