Those are all the same headlights. All of the Forte's to this date have the same headlights. Unless you completely change the LED's or halo, you cannot just change the color. They're all just plug and play. You simply take the stock lights out and put these in.

My last questions about these: Black CCFL Halo Projector Headlights w LED Parking for 2010 2011 Kia Forte Koup | eBay

You said these are the most similar to yours. How do these look in person? What is the color temperature? I prefer white to blue.

How was the installation?

Lastly, if I don't like the color temperature I should be able to get a new tube at a lower level right?
The color of the ring/led strips are a bright white, which in my opinion are way better than blue. They look way better in person, pictures do not do these lights justice. The H7 bulb for low beams they install is the standard color that come stock with the reflectors, that yellowish white color. Would have been nice to have a crystal clear white bulb color but I don't mind as much. Hopes that helps

DePR84 is right, it's just taking the old lights out and putting these in, no modifications needed.

I like the looks of these headlights. Do you just unplug factory setup and plug these in. I am a newbie (noob) at this stuff. I like the idea of getting away from H11bs and getting a more available H7 bulb, certain could change out bub for Silverstar or Ultra. How is the lighting output from changing over to projector than factory set up. Thanks!

Yes, all you do is unscrew the 2 bolts on top of the headlight, unplug the back, pull out the old and put the new in. There is no modification needed to install these. It is literally "plug and play".

I've been wanting to get projectors, but I can't seem to make up my mind on whether or not I want the ones with the led bar (Black CCFL Halo Projector Headlights w LED Bar V2 for 2010 2011 Kia Forte Koup | eBay) versus the ones you have =/

I feel like the ones you have follow suit to the OEM tail lights, but I'm not 100% sold. The fact that they both cost the same doesn't help either!
nothing against the ones with the led bars but I think the led strip lights look better because it breaks up the light. The bars imo is too much light. The led lights help the light ring stand out more too.
