OMGHi2U custom switchback LED "tube"?

I am going to try to modify my headlights to mimic the 2015+ C band but with my own twist to it. No I don't want the aftermarket headlights that do this because they don't allow you to keep you HID's and I am not about that life.
I just need to know what the led tubing is called and where I can get one at. I would prefer it be quite flexible and ideal length would nearly wrap around the entire outside perimeter of the housing (on the inside obviously). Thanks in advance if any of you have any leads on where I can acquire said LED tube.

I've bought a few of the flexible switch back tubes, and if you pull the LEDs out of the silicone, you can make an awesome custom C light.

*Edit*

Bought them on eBay

What are you talking about? The C-light solutions out there now are specifically designed to fit in the C-channel, requiring no cutting at all. Second, the 15's don't have HID's, they have halogen for Premium and Base, and LED for Limited and STI. Neither headlight "loses" anything when installing one of the C-lights.

Edit: re-read it and realized you didn't say you had a 2015+ model, which makes a lot more sense.

I did try the search function, will try again before someone flames me for asking any question ever and I haven't heard of the retrofitsource.com until now but will check it out.
