Gehille,

If both High & Low Beams are Halogen, they should be H7.

LASFIT has a set of LED bulbs, the H7 HK-6N with the NEW UPDATED adapter for 100 bucks a set. These are SPECIFICALLY for Hyundai Kona. Make sure the set(s) you buy has a silver color adapter on it. This will be the new updated one. Don't get the one with the black color adapter, as it is the old model adapter.

They are Canbus Ready & Error Free, so no need to buy an extra decoder/resistor to have them installed.

You will probably need a mechanic to do the High Beams as the High Beam on the passenger side is blocked by the Windshield Washer bottle & the bumper has to be removed to get into the whole headlight assembly on the passenger side.

And the mechanic will be able to install both high & low beams & tuck the wiring back into the housing and put the dust cover back on, with no mods of any kind needing done.

The mechanic will take out the old bulb from the oem socket, then plug in new led bulb, then tuck all the wiring along with the OEM plug back into the housing, and then install the led bulb, then put the dust cover back on, with no mods of any kind being done. 馃榿

Hope this helps 馃榿

I check with a Hyundai dealer and the service manager said they wouldnt' install after market part. I was inquiring if I bought after market bulbs just for the high beams like sylvanias or GE's
Guess I would have to try at a garage/mechanic shop

Hyundai should really supply ALL their cars with the lastest LED Lights.. I mean, they give us dozens of airbags, safety systems that brakes automatically, strengthened Steel with collapse zones, etc... but crappy cheap bulbs that barely light up the Road is somehow acceptable and Safe ?? It seems it would be less expensive to have one set of lights for all models, and safer for all.. One less airbag for your toes would pay for it all... !!

This is an issue with a bunch of brands now, requiring you to upgrade to a higher trim to get the "good" headlights. Toyota, Hyundai, and Subaru all do this, and Consumer Reports is calling out the manufacturers who follow this practice and challenging them on the safety issue.

yes, it is a marketing ploy and they all do it. oh, you want the LED lighting? you need to buy the $26000 model not the $21000 model. some manufacturers group options by trim levels and others offer option packages. you want the fog lights? that's in group A package which has the fog lights, 18 inch wheels, heated seats and navigation system for $1900.

if one manufacturer would add LED to all models regardless of price they would steal market share from the others. then the others would follow suit.
