Default How to Swap 07-08 Front End

Hey Guys,

I've been getting a lot of e-mails lately on people asking how to do the 07-08 and what's needed/not needed for install.

Here's What's needed for a complete install:

07-08 Headlights: Avg. $250-$500
(They make both HID headlights and Halogen so beware when buying)

07-08 Hood: Dealership Price $300-$400
(One of the hardest parts to find. If you can find one Grab it!)

07-08 Fog lights: Avg. $200
(One of the easier things to find, I have a pair if anyone needs it)

07-08 Fog light Covers : Avg $20
(These are the cheapest and easiest to get)

07-08 OEM Or Aftermarket Grille Oem Avg. $30 Aftermarket Avg. $200

07-08 Bumper Avg. $200


As you can see it can be a pricey modd. But WELL worth it. This and the led modd are by far the best two modds on my car. But now to clarify acouple of things people are worried about:

Do you need to get the 07-08 Hood?: Yes/No. You can get yours modded but that will take the autobody place you go to at least 1-2 weeks. If you are trying to cut costs you can use your 04-06 hood but there will be gaps. I admit i drove around for about a month looking for a hood before I found one. It's almost like your car has slanted evil eyes.

Do you need new fenders?: No way! I don't know who ever said that. But I keep getting asked and thats False information. Your stock 04-06 Fenders will work fine. No need to modd them.

Are the headlights Plug and play?: Yes. They are completely plug and play. Only thing that won't work is your parking lights and your fogs. You'll have to re-wire them. Check the bottom of this thread for more info.

How's the Bumper Bolt Up? It's directly the same fitment as the 04-06 bumper.

Are all 07-08 headlights factory Xenon/HID?: No! Be careful what you buy and make sure they are HID if you want to upgrade or stay with HID fogs. You won't lose any lighting if you stay with HID. I highly recommend getting HID headlights if your converting.

What's needed with these fogs?: The fogs are H11. I personally just bought an H11 6000k HID kit. I recommend searching for an H11 harness so if you want to convert back to stock or have your HID's plug and play you can do that. H11 harness is rather cheap depending on where you get it.

How Do I Wire These Things up? Well, Lucky for you I made a thread and will include it for you lol. Check out my step by step method of fixing the parking light problem and fogs.

Figure i'd write up a little "how to" on installing fogs from a 6thgen to a 6.5gen


Step 1: Disconnect wiring harness from your headlights....
Cut back the black tape/tubing so you can see your color wires

Click the image to open in full size.

You see there's a black wire (Ground) and a white wire (Pos) for the fogs...
Cut them from the harness...

Click the image to open in full size.

It's the corner part of the wiring harness....

now extend these wires about 2 feet down to you have some slack and test your fogs...
NOTE: I actually had the connectors so it was easier for me to test... some of you might need to make your own harness or get H.I.D.'s to finish this step...

Click the image to open in full size.

once you did that your pretty much done... make sure your connections are good and sealed tight...
also make sure you test everything out

If you guys decide to get the 07/08 headlights you will notice once you plug it in to the stock harness the parking lights will not light up. In order to fix this you must take the original harness to the car and cut the ORANGE and THE RED N BLUE wire and splice them together. This will eliminate the problem and the parking light will function normally.


If you guys are still having some problems. I helped out acouple of members do the install and I'm always down to help anyone else out.
Just PM me. I live right on Long Island.


Here you go guys....
The long awaited modd is almost fully complete

The morning lights can be reused without cutting the harnesses. Just De pin. There is a thread on here that shows which wires.

07-08 Headlights: Avg. $250-$500

07-08 Bumper Avg. $200


As you can see it can be a pricey modd. But WELL worth it. This and the led modd are by far the best two modds on my car. But now to clarify acouple of things people are worried about:

Do you need to get the 07-08 Hood?: Yes/No. You can get yours modded but that will take the autobody place you go to at least 1-2 weeks. If you are trying to cut costs you can use your 04-06 hood but there will be gaps. I admit i drove around for about a month looking for a hood before I found one. It's almost like your car has slanted evil eyes.

Do you need new fenders?: No way! I don't know who ever said that. But I keep getting asked and thats False information. Your stock 04-06 Fenders will work fine. No need to modd them.

Are the headlights Plug and play?: Yes. They are completely plug and play. Only thing that won't work is your parking lights and your fogs. You'll have to re-wire them. Check the bottom of this thread for more info.

How's the Bumper Bolt Up? It's directly the same fitment as the 04-06 bumper.

Are all 07-08 headlights factory Xenon/HID?: No! Be careful what you buy and make sure they are HID if you want to upgrade or stay with HID fogs. You won't lose any lighting if you stay with HID. I highly recommend getting HID headlights if your converting.

What's needed with these fogs?: The fogs are H11. I personally just bought an H11 6000k HID kit. I recommend searching for an H11 harness so if you want to convert back to stock or have your HID's plug and play you can do that. H11 harness is rather cheap depending on where you get it.

How Do I Wire These Things up? Well, Lucky for you I made a thread and will include it for you lol. Check out my step by step method of fixing the parking light problem and fogs.

Figure i'd write up a little "how to" on installing fogs from a 6thgen to a 6.5gen


Step 1: Disconnect wiring harness from your headlights....
Cut back the black tape/tubing so you can see your color wires

You see there's a black wire (Ground) and a white wire (Pos) for the fogs...
Cut them from the harness...

It's the corner part of the wiring harness....

now extend these wires about 2 feet down to you have some slack and test your fogs...
NOTE: I actually had the connectors so it was easier for me to test... some of you might need to make your own harness or get H.I.D.'s to finish this step...

once you did that your pretty much done... make sure your connections are good and sealed tight...
also make sure you test everything out

If you guys decide to get the 07/08 headlights you will notice once you plug it in to the stock harness the parking lights will not light up. In order to fix this you must take the original harness to the car and cut the ORANGE and THE RED N BLUE wire and splice them together. This will eliminate the problem and the parking light will function normally.


If you guys are still having some problems. I helped out acouple of members do the install and I'm always down to help anyone else out.
Just PM me. I live right on Long Island.


Here you go guys....
The long awaited modd is almost fully complete

I need clarification. I have the 07-08 lights and I am trying to get my parking lights to work, when you say CUT the orange and red n blue wire and splice them together am I going to cut them BOTH from the harness and splice them together?

ok so if I don't change the headlights do I need to do the hood mod? I do love the 07/08 headlamp but not necessary in my case just want the bumper because I already wired for the fogs.
