So it appears that GM Korea is doing one last mild refresh to the 1st gen Cruze MY16 before they switch over to the 2nd gen.

You'll notice that the front fascia is the same as North America however the front headlamps receive a modern update which includes halogen projectors and a LED DRL. Not bad looking!









Now I wish we can find a reputable online store that could import Korea parts to the states for a decent price. Shoot, I'm still in love with the Korean 2013 Cruze Sport front/rear fascia!

That last image almost appears to have an HID headlamp.

I really like those...just have to figure out how to get them...

This thread has my subscription. I say we all subscribe to this and post updates on what we find out about these headlights. I'd like to have these in my Cruze too. I imagine they'd connect with the same connectors we have in our models (maybe a bit of wiring modifications).

Cruzetalk member Tae Yoon Kim is in Korea. Maybe he can work a group buy for us?

That's exactly what I'm thinking. Fits like an OEM headlight assembly and less risk of cracks in the finishing to let moisture in.

No offense to the guys at carid but i far from trust those type of headlights. Ive always been leery of chinese looking headlights. Primary function is to illuminate then look good

Well the main issue is that non-OEM lenses generally have a bad habit of peeling/cracking and/or yellowing.

Pricey...but I'm digging them...

So the big question is (still going based off that last picture in the first post)...are they halogen, or HID?

They are halogen. That last picture looks like they altered the image to give the LED DRL a little bit more bluish hue which also changed the beam color from the projector.

Ahh, well at that point, I might as well just retrofit the stockers and call it a day, and be able to run HIDs.
