    I'm looking to drop in some Halo headlights into my '09, but I can't find any for the '09 yet. Does anyone know if the headlights have changed from the '08 to '09, or can I buy some lights that fit the '05-'08? Thanks!

    2005-2009 share the same headlights, there were no changes AFAIK.

    I finally installed my halo lights and they look pretty good... except I'm having a fogging problem. The lights start to fog up on the bottom and inboard side of both headlights. They fog up after the lights are on for 20 minutes or more. Has anyone else had similar problems? I've been messing with the vents on the back of the lights, but to no avail. Any help on this would be much appreciated. In the mean time, enjoy the pics.

    I've been wanting to do something different with my headlights, and have been reading up as much as I can about HID stuff. I have come across headlights, such as the ones above, on ebay. But am not sure I like the BMW 'brow' or the Audi lights along the bottom. Have any of you come across replacement lights similar to the above ones without those 2 elements?

    Hey doubleu I have a pair very similar to yours and I had the same problem too. What i did was take the lights out and drilled 2 to 3 small holes on the bottom, you should be able to drill the holes where they are not seen from the front. It seemed to help mine.

    I had the fogging and then my halo and brow went out (on diff lights) so now im getting them replaced and I will be caulking the and sealing them very well prior to installation
    it is caused because their isnt a good seal and water gets in and trapped somewhat
