Alright, so I’ve been looking around the forum and can’t really get a definite answer. I have a 2018 Cruze LS. I’m curious, are the headlights just standard reflective housings or are they projectors? I’m new when it comes to headlight housings so don’t roast me too hard :p
I’m guessing the housings with the LED Strip are projectors and the ones without are standard reflective housings? Anyway, I don’t like the color temperature of the stock bulbs. I want more of a white light. Was thinking of going LED after these bulbs burn out. But I don’t want to do LED in a reflective housing so I’d like to know before I buy.
Thanks!

By any chance, does anyone know a price on the upgrade? Would rather go ahead and get it done at the dealer for warranty reasons and to be honest. I’m too lazy to align the headlights after putting them in so... yeah :p
i saw a price somewhere but forgot where. :/

I really don't think you're looking at a simple plug and play swap for the different headlights on the Cruze. Your LS has separate bulbs for the low and high beams. The upgraded headlight with LED DRL use a single 9005 Bulb with a motorized flap to change the beam pattern between hi/low beams. I'm guessing the harness is different, and the programming itself on the car for the two variations.
You may be right, might have to do some more research on this. I really want those LED strips. I would have just gotten the LT if I could have, but couldn’t really get approved because of my age without a co-signer (I’m only 19) and I’m pretty sure the rebate was only on the LS trim at the time. :/
I still love my car though. Going to be putting some tint on my headlights here in a few days. Might post on it, first time tinting. Pretty excited :D
