03 EX headlamp to 05 + swap

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

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?
