Default Is this possible

Gidday,

I have a 2012 Kia Rio SI Hatchback and this middle of the range model does not have LED Daytime Running Lights.

1 - Is it possible to add these DRL to the existing headlight Assembly.

2 - I tried to look at replacing the headlight assembly with a new one like the SLI or SLS models that do have DRL but unable to find a site that sells them

Any suggestions if the 1st option or a website where I can by the headlights for the 2nd option

Thanks

Kiwalian

exledshop has the headlights themselves with the LED, but isn't DRL, only parking. Or if you want to do the work yourself and save money, they sell a module for that space. here You can ask for them to make it only white, which is possible.

yes you can buy the OEM headlight with LED runs but I am not sure the harness would not need to be changed in any way.
