Icon6 2013/2014 Accord Daytime LED Running Lights

So I just recently purchased a 2014 Accord Sport Sedan and absolutely love it. However when I was purchasing I really liked the appeal of the EX-L V6 daytime running LED lights. Does anyone know if it is at all possible to replace the Sport Sedan headlamps with the LED V6 headlamps?

The hardware is different between your Accord vs. Accords with the parking light/DRL (LED).

From comparing the circuit diagrams for equipped models; the lenses housing includes LEDs, different wiring and harness connectors, a DRL relay specifically for the parking light/DRL (LED). Non-equipped models do not include them.

Whether it may or may not not work, looking at just some of the parts costs for a V6, without any labor.

HEADLIGHT ASSY., R. 33100-T2A-A11 retail $414.54; online (w/o shipping) $298.48
HEADLIGHT ASSY., L. 33150-T2A-A11 retail $414.54; online $298.48
WIRE HARNESS, ENGINE ROOM 32200-T2G-A00 retail 597.33; online $430.08 (Honda only sells the engine room wire harness with fuse box, etc.)

Total Parts retail $1,426.41; online (w/o shipping) $1,027.04 There may be other parts still needed. No labor included.

An independent retrofit with LEDs, relay, wiring/splicing and connectors may be more feasible, if you can find someone with the skills and knowledge.

Yeah, its a pretty signifigant difference. Its not like you can just unplug the old ones and put the LEDs in. Not to mention the cost.
The LEDs do look cool though, especially at night.

You will need a special wiring harness in order to run the LEDs - this goes for both the headlamps as well as the tail lamps. There is a guy that makes & sells these harnesses:
