2016 Rav4 LED Headlight Upgrade Question - Need Help Please!

I want to upgrade my 2016 Rav4 Halogen headlights to LED Headlights and came to know that LED headlights will work on 12 Volts on high/Low and DRL only.I am not sure whether my car uses 12 volts for both headlights and DRL OR it uses 12 volts for headlights & 6 volts for DRL(It is configured with Halogen DRL).
Can someone please confirm about voltage details?Thanks

I have an LE and the headlights in "DRL mode" will flicker with LED if you don't use a "flicker-kit", which from what I understand is just a capacitor. I tried the LED route but have not found a good set I like. Hopefully you find something as bright as the halogens.

Most LED aftermarket kits are Canbus ready and are flicker free. They have a chip built in so that nothing flickers, even DRL's. I recommend the OPT7 LED Kits. They put out a ton of light as compared to HID. HID's are in the past and flicker like crazy.

Opt7

I received an email from Opt7 today, they don't make a 9012 bulb but you can modify a 9006 bulb to fit.

OR we do have some better one available in market
