Are all these LED references 6000k?
I bought the Sealight X2 9005 (headlight) and 9006 (fog light), as mentioned here, off of eBay. Also previously mentioned, the passenger side headlight/fog lights were easy to replace and plenty of room to put the excess cordage. I took off the lower to higher 4 push pins and the one screw at the top of the wheel well. Turned both headlights counter clockwise and both came out easily. Replaced & moved to the drivers side. This was the same challenge level with removing the same 4 push pins and screws on the DS. I did notice I had to disconnect the wiring first so I could turn it past a post that is there.
I:
Took off the fuse box top.
Reached under, up and through the plastic well with my right hand, while reaching down with my left to coordinate taking the rear cap off.
Reached in and turned the halogen light to the left.
Pulled out and disconnected.
Painfully put the LED light- & turned to the right.
Reconnected the wires.
Tucked in and used same method to turn the rear cap.
Looks great!!!’
NOTE!!: after getting the bulbs in and secured via twisting and before tucking the wires in/ capping, turn the headlights on against a wall/garage/ large paper, to make sure the bulbs are in the 9 & 3 positions. I didn’t do this and got lucky with the passenger side, but not the DS (my luck) where it was in 12-6. I had to redo the process the next night to get it corrected & the hands took another beating. Overall, I spent over hour the first night and 20 minutes on the second. Take your time and be patient. Not sure how this was a good idea from Kia and hoping I do t have to replace any bulbs any soon.

I changed my fogs and headlights to led using the ODX brand.The fogs are 9006 and the headlights are 9005 projector.The ODX lights have a solid lifetime warranty and they are one of a very few companies that sell specific bulbs for projector headlights.The projector headlights DO take a Projector bulb which they are designed to do.I did try several regular led bulbs from Amazon and they were a waste of time as the beam from them was scattered meaning dark and light spots in the beam in front of you.and no very efficient.Both the fog and the headlight bulbs from ODX are some of the very best on the market.They call their headlight bulbs PROJEKTOR.The difference in a projector bulds is that they have only one led panel which reflects light off of the top half of the lens.When you activate the high beams a small shudder opens and lets light reflect off of the entire perimeter of the lens.Imagine a two or 4 sided led panelled led bulb trying to reflect light off of a single reflector on the top half of the projector would look like,completely scattered.Most of the Amazon bulbs are designed for the reflector beam headlight buckets.I live in Canada and the prices I paid were 100.00 for the fogs and 170.00 for the headlights but they are well worth it compared to the Amazon crap.Look them up on youtube and they will show you a comparison video.FYI the stock halogens,I found threw a better beam than the amazon leds but not as white.Also a very important note is the the ODX lights are specifically designed not to blind oncoming traffic as I have never been flashed even once.To each his own but given the accurate info I provided you,It's your choice.By the way I do not work for ODX,LOL.
Appreciate the information on the Odx lights I purchased a set from Overdose Performance because ODX does not sell to the Usa. I should get mine next week. I decided to get a set of the Seltos Sx Led fog lights. Seeing your post saved a lot of time and buying lights that don't work properly. Thank you 😊
