'11 and '13 headlights

Is there any big difference between the 2011 and 2013? I've been trying to get smoked or black headlights and taillights for my '13 but they don't have the options for those.

Taillights are compatible.
Headlights changed in 2012 and are not compatible.

And so you're saying that 2012 headlights will fit on a 2013?

2012 and 2013 headlights ARE interchangeable.

Really? Are there projector / halo sets available for the 2012? I haven't found anything. I did get in touch with Anzo USA, apparently they are developing one right now but have no release date.

Anything besides retrofit and OEM is crap unless you reseal them, in which case might as well save time while put out a bit extra cash for retrofit, its worth it.

Fixed that for you.

There have been pictures posted on this forum of the pattern produced by the ready-built projectors.

The patterns are terrible. The cutoff is good, but the light is not even... it looks like grandpa's old flashlight beam.
With halogens, light output is worse than stock. They suck a little less with HID, but they are still worse than stock.

Moose and a couple of others have done an H1 retrofit into the Spyder projectors, but they fabricated their own mounts and completely replaced all of the Spyder parts. Moose was the first and he went through 2 sets of Spyders before getting one that worked.
