03 EX headlamp to 05 + swap

This was posted in another section with no answer. Does anyone know if this is true?

The simple harness upgrade from dfuser runs around $50, and apparently the harness upgrade that allows use of daytime running lamps and fogs runs around $150, but it still doesn't allow use of the factory headlight switch to operate the fogs?
Am I fairly accurate on this? Seems to be a bit more involved than just swapping lights and a cheap harness to retain total factory control.

anyone know the scoop on this? why would this change anything all you are changing is the bucket and pigtail for the new bulbs right?
