Headlight Retrofit Options

Ive done some searching through the forum here and found lots of posts about dropping in LEDs or HIDs in the stock headlight housings. As someone whos very susceptible to bright lights coming from lifted trucks and aftermarket bulbs in halogen housings, Im not about to contribute to the problem of blinding people on the road, so I thought about importing OEM Honda projector headlights from overseas (UK, Japan or Australia) that will fit (no pun intended) on a US 2018 Fit.

Has anyone tried that? If so, where did you buy the parts?

Projector lamps from those countries are intended for driving on the left side of the road. Therefore the beam pattern will dip to the wrong side, and youll still blind oncoming traffic.

How about headlights from LHD foreign markets?

It would probably be faster to split the stock halogen housings and retrofit an LED projector inside, unless you have a good source for foreign market parts- and if you do, I want a disc brake conversion kit.
