    Finally intalled the OEM DRL and HID on a luxury ATS

    What I have is a luxury ATS, and I install the OEM LED fog light and HID on it.
    Here are some pictures.

    You said you installed the OEM lower LEDs. I thought the lower LEDs from the factory were in a different panel that also included a horizontal bright metal bar. I'm not seeing the bar in the picture; maybe its just hard to see. Or did you modify the factory non-LED panel, or buy a panel for a Performance/Premium but not buy the bar, or ????

    I notice there are no upper OEM LED"S....too difficult and/or impossible to do? Unfortunately, that's what really sets the car off. Otherwise,nicely done and a huge improvement in the looks department.

    He probably used a dremel or something to cut slots in the base plates then mounted the LEDS in. Op did you just tap the wires that send power to the bulbs to light up the LEDS? or did you run a rocker switch?

    Actually I ordered everything OEM from GM. The LED light, the trim bezel that you mentioned in the performance, and the horinzontal bright insert. I didn't modify anything.

    It is possible to do the upper also, but they just expensive. It will cost 1000 dollars for each side headlight kit. And I also need to order the harness from the performance, which costs about 200 dollars. not worth.. Anyway I think the hid and lower LED combination works perfect.

    I think he was just asking what the cost of the parts were, not drawing any characterization of the relative cost.

    Thanks for clarifying my inquiry.
    Just wanted to know cost on an absolute basis.
