    First, let me say that I am new to this forum. I have an 05 tC that is showing it's age in the headlight department. I want to replace the assembly, but want to give it a "new" look. I was thinking about projectors and "halo/angel eyes" but was told to stay away from aftermarket ones. Right now I'm pretty sure that I have standard halogen bulbs. So, here are a few of my questions.

    Can I purchase OEM assemblies for a 2008 (or whenever they made projector lens for tC) and install them with little or no issues? If so, will the standard halogen bulb work in them or do I need to go with HID or other bulbs? I'm also guessing that the "halo" is most likely CCFL rather than LED, so will this be an issue or not?

    I don't want to get too in-depth with this upgrade, so whichever would be the easiest path would suit me. I have seen quite a few you-tube videos on replacing these lights, so I think for the most part I could probably do it. I just need to find out if newer headlights will work in first-gen tCs. Thanks a lot.

    I decided to go back to stock OEM lens and put in halogen bulbs.
