no, they will cause other issues. your car has adaptive headlights, so the control unit will be expecting the leveling and turning mech. no aftermarket retrofits have this, so you'll have an error constantly on the dash.

you can get a pair of OEM headlights on ebay for far less than what the dealer wants.

again, i have a very strong feeling that you do not need new headlights, the dealer is just taking advantage of you by giving you a big bill.
