My apologies didn't see page 2. Can the wire modifications be done easily for a signature or does a body shop or audio shop have to hard wire them in? I was told my signature had an circular connectors but the lamps have this pill shaped housing.

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.
Do you have an ultimate or signature? Any pictures of the harness. Mechanic said he couldn't install mine

We did this to our Equus after we purchaced them. The first was a 2013 Signature in 2016 the second was a 2013 Ultimate in 2017 and the third was a 2011 Ultimate also in 2017. The 2013 Equuses also received the vertical grilles as well and the Signature"s shift console was replaced with the ultimate's rear entertainment unit as well. They serve as Limos in our fleet. No names are on the outside of them so the mystery continues as we bring our guests up in these. There are 3 different types of headlamps that will fit in the Equus. I bought both the alternatives after extensive research. Most components interchange amonst these cars but the wiring must be modified between the signature and the ultimate (prestige) version.
What modifications need to be done? I have a 2014 signature and the busy shop told me the connectors don't match. Please help?

So I had to find my own answers. There is no modification needed for 2014 centennial lights to 2014 equus signature. It is plug and play. If you just want the Halo without high beam halogen drl on at the same time (which makes the car look older to me) someone will have to install a relay. IMG_20190710_210721.jpgIMG_20190711_113958.jpg

They are the Korean headlights on a 2011. Not sure what year they started using those headlights though. On a 2011 US Ultimate they work flawlessly though.
I found a site that has used ones available, but the 2012 year doesnt look like these at all. These seem to start at the 2013 year. Dont want to buy expensive lights that wont fit

I'm pretty sure 2011-2015 all fit the same. LIke I said, even my 2011 was able to fit these no problem. Completely plug and play.

Well if that's true then I'll buy the 2014's since they all look like these, compared to the 2012's which just look like US OEM

What's the part number on that triple light assembly on the right of the first pic, because that's the one I certainly want
