Hey guys - I have an ATS 2013 2.5L model with standard yellowish glow headlamps like these:



I was hoping to replace the headlamps with the LED (whitish glow) like these:



headlamps and also add that vertical lamp on the front bumper that is seen in the newer models. I called 2 cadillac dealers in my area and they said it cannot be done.

Does anyone have any knowledge of whether this is a possibility?

Why didn't you just buy a model with the xenons? Retrofitting might be more hassle than it's worth, but I wouldn't know for a fact. Don't bother with dealers, most would never modify cars. Try tuner shops instead. As far as lower fascia lighting, I don't know if that's specific to certain model years or trim levels, all I know is that my 2016 Performance trim has xenons and LEDs. Maybe trading for a newer model would be your best bet.

Thanks guys - mine is certified pre-owned. Would the warranty be impacted in case I do go to a custom shop for such changes? At the time I was buying this vehicle (a 2013), I didn't particularly take notice of the lights until i saw the newer models on the road. Then, i thought it might be maybe a $1000 or so to make this change (buying the lights on ebay cheaply and then putting them together shouldn't be that much of a work?)
