I was not completely happy with the look of my headlights, so I had them customised to how I wanted them.

Work done :

HID Upgrade
LED Halo Ring
LED flexible tube (Replace original "eyebrow" as not bright)
LED Sequential Turn Signal
Chrome deletion
Light Black Headlight Tint

Whoops ... hopefully these are the right way up !

There are no covers on the lights. The original glass piece that acts as the "eyebrow" has just been painted black. I do have an issue with a small amount of light coming through a crack between the 2 pieces, however I am getting a decal to cover it.

Last pic shows the light coming through. Not too noticeable, but I know it's there.

How did you manage to take the headlight apart?

Keep truckin'
I had the headlights made by a professional and not too sure how he took them apart. I just explained what I wanted and made amendments based on what he was able to do once he opened the lights.

Nice design. He took it apart using a heat gun most likely. That's how I did mine on my old Catera. The glue heats up and you can just pull the housing apart from the lens. Then do your thing and reseal it properly

I watched a few YouTube vids and considered attempting it myself, but would most likely screw it up and have to buy new headlights.

I want my tail lights done, but this guy is not comfortable doing tail lights. I found another person to do it, but they are 2000kms (1200 miles) away from me.

I wouldn't have dared done it on a new car. I was willing to have the lights ruined if something went arry because new ones were cheap to replace. It's tedious and you have to be very careful. I wouldn't do it again but strange he won't do taillights since the headlights are the more sensitive of the bunch

I thought it was weird too, but noticed on his website that he mainly did headlights. Not too fussed though. Just means I get to go on a road trip

That looks really nice, I love the halo + eyebrow LED look.

On a side note, I wish I had gotten the Limited Tucson sometimes...although me and my girl hate leather with a passion but the LED tailights + HID setup on those are nice!

I'm the same sometimes. Here in Aus, the top of the line model is called the "Highlander". There were a few standard accessories on this model I wanted, but could not justify the additional $20k. I just bought the Active X (2nd model in the 4 model line up) and will just pay to add the extras I really want.

I've been pricing them up and have a schedule on when I want them installed too! Only an extra $8k all up and mine won't be like any other Tucson out there.

Do you mind where you purchased these? I would like to add this to my car.
And anyone can tell me how much a tech would usually charge to get this done for me?

These cost me $2k. They were made to my specification so weren't sold as a pre-made set. I had them made by a guy in Brisbane, Australia. Not sure if it would be easier if you were able to find someone closer to you.
