So I contacted the maker of these headlights. The LED strip and angel eyes are actually white. (Eh...I may need to go from 8000k to 6000k). The one thing that is bothering me is that the turn signals are halogen and not easily replaceable. For people who have retrofitting experience, how hard is it to open the headlight housing and seal it back up?

I don't think so. From the pictures in the first link the parking/turn signal bulb is just a standard amber 1157 buld but they moved it up to the corner like Elantras are. And it looks like the high and low beams are two seperate bulds! Low beam is a H7 bulb in the projector housing and the high beam is a H1 bulb where the stock turn signals are on our current setup.

If I had the money I would jump all over these, they seem like the perfect upgrade over the stock setup.

I am not going to get the one that I posted a while ago. I am currently debating between HSD HR (https://uniqperformance.ca/products-...hsd-coilovers/) or NeoTech([). I can't read Korean so my friend is going to translate that page to me. NiceMotors says he'll help me import aftermarket parts. But if he can't get them I would have no choice but to go for the HSD HR.
