Aftermarket Headlights?

Saw a 2013 2.5 SL on the road today with a line of white LEDs under the headlights. Looked like it was part of the enclosure. Headlights did not appear to be HIDs.

Has anyone else seen these? Is it a Nissan accessory?

You sure it was an Altima and not a Sentra? The new Sentras have the LEDs under the headlights.

Where in NE Ohio are you? I'm in Cleveland.

And yep, could've been the new Sentra, which appears to borrow a lot of looks from the Altima. Would've been nice if they gave the Altima the LEDs...

I was sure the back of the car said Altima, but I could be wrong. Can't deny I was a little jealous when I saw them.
I do ~ 80 miles per day between Akron and Lakewood - 90/176/480/77.

Ah, I'm usually on 71 and occasionally 480. Sucks being out here in the frigid Ohio weather while seeing all these other users posting about their clean and modded cars. Can't do a damn thing out here in the snow and cold. I have some HIDs and a footwell kit sitting in their boxes just waiting to be installed, plus an extremely dirty car dying to be cleaned.

I have two Sentra in my neighborhood and I get jealous of them too. They have led tail lights and headlights.

Am sure, pretty soon they will make an aftermarket lights with led in them for the Altima.

Im not really a fan of the led thing, im glad the 5th gens lights look the way they do with just a clean simple projector style housing, one of the main reasons Im so attracted to this car

I do like the look of the new altima projector headlights! thank god they finally included em in the sedan! the shroud is pretty crazy looking compared to most car companies out there, but so is the maxima! i also like the clean look without any led lighting, but i gotta say i def like the look of the new accord's drls! so if i was looking for a new car i think i would be more attracted to having drls, then not is what im saying, but thats just me, and i have leds and halos so i guess im used to having them, and i'd b very curious to how a 5th gen would look with an aftermarket led strip projector headlight! That be some serious moooolah!

This is not a Nissan accessory. I recently put a set on my car because I was jealous of the new sentra

Sorry about that, I was referring to the led strips on the head lights. Also installed an hid kit because I dnt like halogen bulbs. Can't see upcoming deer in the road with those things. But you can't go wrong with HIDs

Please do share how you did this. Also, were you able to set them up as daytime running lights?
