Swapping FR-S Headlights with BRZ Headlights

Hello everyone,


I know there a multiple old threads on this forum, but i tried contacting and messaging everyone who had done this swap, but all their profiles have inactivity for almost 12 months.


Has anyone who is active, or recently swapped their FR-S headlights with BRZ ones?

I recently and fortunately to come across a pair of BRZ headlights that were made available at a discounted price and local! but i don't want to buy it and be screwed.


I am not very good with cars, so this project will definitely be outside my comfort zone.


If anyone has any idea, or what additional cables i required that would be helpful, or if have any comment in regards to the swap it would be reassuring for me before i make the dive!



Cheers!

I'm in the process of sourcing parts for this swap. I bought headlights last week, got them for pretty cheap, but they came without D4S ballasts and bulbs, and lack a few other odds and ends. So, it's a minor pain in the ass and it's taking me a while. Anyone looking at this in the future, try to buy complete assemblies!

If you have the complete assemblies including ballasts and bulbs, basically all you need to do is order the 6 pin connector to repin the BRZ headlight's 8 pin to the 6pin setup on of the FR-S (part number 90980-11033), or repin the FR-S stock connector to an 8 pin to fit the BRZ headlights (part number 90980-10897). I'm going with the latter.

This guy took the same approach:

Here's a wiring diagram:




GT = FR-S

This would also depend on what FRS headlight you are starting off with. In the video he has the OEM HID so hence the 6 to 8 pin conversion. If you have halogens it would be different.

It looks like based on the video... he was swapping a winjet headlight.. i don't think it was OEM HID or GT86 headlights.

I have the complete headlight like in the video but they used part # 90980-10897

Is that the one i buy to connect to my Stock FR-S?




Correct me if i am wrong, but you said in your post to get part number 90980-11033


Double checking before i make the purchase on the connectors!


Thank you!
