Tech package headlights are HID and have Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS). I doubt it will be plug-n-play. Cars with AFS have a button to disable.
I think LED tails will work.

My understanding is that they will bolt up but the wiring into the harness uses a different style plug so it’s not PnP.

You may be able to use the assembly for a Tech and a HID ballast for non-tech with the appropriate bulb and make it work.

OEM ballast won’t work unless you want to figure out the wiring. I wouldn’t suggest trying to make the AFS work. Looks like a pain, even if possible to bolt up.

yea i’m not going to attempt doing anything
was just hoping someone made a diy for doing it or trying to figure out a way to make it work
but i guess they rather get aftermarket or modify the stock ones
it’s a shame cuz i like the techs better
