Headlight Kits for 2012

So, in my hunt for a headlight kit for my 2012 sedan, I came across these:

After I finished wiping away the drool I went hunting for a set for my car, only to be disappointed. I can't seem to find any. I did find one place that would take my existing lights and mod them, but I can't exactly drive around without my headlights for a week.

Does anyone know where I can find a kit like this one?

Buy OEM and put in your own halos, it's cheaper, works better, and they don't suck.

Which to be honest... those look an awful lot like the OEM headlights; which has me worried as to what the actual product is (because I doubt it's the same as that photoshop image put together by some "graphic designer")

The biggest problem with doing it myself is that I have absolutely NO attention to detail, plus I'd have to go through the bother of ordering my own HID projector kit (I'm assuming that I don't want to just insert HID bulbs into the existing Halogen projectors) and mounting that.

I like the notion of ordering something for a reasonable price, having it delivered to my doorstep and having only to mount it. :-p

That's... exactly how you do HID swaps lol

Doing a HID swap can be done with the bumper still on (I did mine without removing anything)
Angel eyes will only take 30 minutes total and then sitting drying for a day.

The only way you can screw it up is if you rush it, or burn the headlight.
So 1, don't rush, 2 use a heat gun, not an oven and it's then near impossible to screw it up lol

I really don't want to do any of the work myself other than unbolting the old assembly and installing the new one, but does the whole projector assembly separate from the rest of the headlight housing so that I can just slide a new one in? I really don't want to install HID bulbs into a halogen projector.

1. Pull out halogen bulbs.
2. Retrofit the wiring for the new HID ballasts
3. Stick ballasts somewhere.
4. Put HID bulbs in headlight.

5. Profit.

It's SERIOUSLY not as hard as you're making it...
