Today I got into an accident on the highway and a piece of tractor trailer tire broke my RH headlight.

Any help will be appreciated, I'm looking to buy the RH headlight Xenon HID for my 2012 LR4 HSE LUX.

The headlight is broken, or is it the hard cover clear lens? that's removable from the headlight assembly by heating up with a **** dryer or oven to loosen the glue.
Then buy:

installation is the reverse order. Make sure when putting the new lens on you properly use the sealant. If you miss a spot water will enter. Then that's it. I would do the LH as well so they'd both look brand new. While you're in the job you might as well replace the xenon bulb. They do get dim overtime. I just swapped mine out from my 2011 and the new xenons of the same color temp/brand as OEM are waaaaaaay brighter.

Bad news for me, the new headlight came in but unfortunately the light is a little yellowish comparing to the old/original. The old one has the light more like white LED, I don't know what to do now. Paid $ 894.00 thinking I will get the best and right light same and similar to the old one.
Should I leave it alone? or should I try to get a different one.
The one I got is the LR 028408.

Can you post a photo of both lights? The facelift (2014+) has different headlights, plus some are halogen, some are HID, and some are the HID lights that swivel.
