JD2787 - I think you will be the "pioneer" if you do this. It is an expensive mod, but may give you enhanced high beams.

My own experience with the OEM high beams: tried Hella 100 watt H7 bulbs - no joy. Light still "yellow" and not much brighter. Probably need a relay to fully energize the 100 watt bulbs. Now using LED H7 bulbs, which are a good conversion in my opinion. More light and much whiter.

Before you buy these Korean bulbs do check the plug outlet on your current oem bulbs to confirm it is exactly the same as the Korean model. If so, then it should be a "drop in".

Where did you buy these and how much di they cost you? I see used ones like this from the limo car for $1000 - so expensive- any help would help really... I have a 2014 equus- thanks!

When you replaced your high beams with LEDs, what do the DRLs look like and do they still function properly? (are they dim or do they stay bright)

I think it looks better also if the emblem is this.
I just got same lights for replacement on my 2014 Equus- a few questions- are the halo line lights working? another words are wire harnesses identical and do all lights function. I havent installed yet. I am in NY also. How much was it to do and where did you do it? THANKS Manong! looks awesome!

Yes, the halo light works but only when the headlights are on, but I use it sometimes as DRL by turning the knob of the stalk to parking light position. The non-Led bulb works as the regular DRL. There are no other wire harnesses needed, Its plug-and-play and all lights function😁.

I just installed both lights and they work great. I did the work myself- came out awesome after three hours from beginning to end- saved between $200-400 which is what a mechanic wanted. I will try to upload pictures.

the work was extensive to remove lights- to include removing air intakes, all top covers, bumper - be prepaired to get creative when accessing very hard to reach bolts holding lower portion headlights - expect at least 3 hours and have plenty of plastic snaps to replace all the ones you break-

Which plastic snaps did you need to buy more of and where did you get them? I'd like to do this upgrade sometime in the summer.
