I could have sworn my friend who gave me these ( out of his frs) said he got them on his car from the dealership. I can tell he forgot that isn't true. Now I have it wired I just need better projectors. Yay. Free harness I guess.


ISO cheap led halo fogs peeps!

So I bought an HID kit and projector that's supposed to fit the stock FRS headlights. Does anyone know if I were to buy Valenti headlights if it would still fit as if they were also stock? Not sure how the interior of the valentis look.

Did you mean these headlights?:

The valenti jewels require the OEM HIDS which you don't have in an FR-S

I wanted to add an LED strip to the fog light bezel of my 2015 FRS, know of any good brands that make it?

Are there any decent upgrade options for a stock halogen headlight on a 2013 FRS if I don't want to disassemble/bake/etc?

Are any of the LED plug and play options worthwhile?

However they aren't going to have anywhere near the precision cutoff of a retrofit LED projector install as you already know, but right now they are very good from what I've seen.


The LED headlight bulbs from morimoto and diode dynamics are pretty good, technology on LED bulbs has come along way, and they have pretty good cutoff and seem to match the stock bulbs beam pattern pretty well.



I've got the morimoto 2 strokes on my CX-5 and they never needed any adjustment and the light output is way way better. I'm planning on taking the HIDs out of my winjets on my FR-S and possibly buying them for it as well. The HIDs from my diode dynamics on my winjets are starting to take a bit longer to warm up then they did when new and an LED upgrade would definitely fix that.

So either Diode dynamics SL leds or morimotos 2 strokes would probably be best

These projectors accept HID kits very well without causing glare to oncoming due to the projectors optic's style as a whole.

LED bulbs optics do not work out very well in projectors.

If you don't plan on doing opening the headlights and swapping the projectors out for proper HID ones, i recommend just a basic Morimoto HID kit for your car from www.TheRetrofitSource.com

There is no need for extra harnesses for your car either.

(this does NOT work with BRZ's)

This kit replaces all the internals with HID specific components that will be much brighter than oem projectors with HIDs in them. They are also bixenon which means they are both a low beam and a highbeam. They do require you to open up the headlights, but the install is pretty straight forward.

This is the next best option besides upgrading to OEM BRZ headlights.
