    Headlight PS. Car headlight PS
    -blue(low beam) -tan (low beam)
    -white(high beam). -green (high beam)
    -tan (drl)(halos). -brown (drl halos)
    -black (ground - black/ black (ground)

    **** Cts v wiring harness has 2 ground wire for hids. So I this is why I sodered all my connections so that I could utilize both grounds. Most likey not necessary but I wanted to play it safe.

    Headlight DS Car headlight DS
    -blue (low beam). - yellow (low beam)
    -white (high beam). - green (high beam)
    -tan (drl/ halo) - purple (drl/halo)
    - black (ground). - black/ black (grounds)


    *** also plug off the washer hoses that were going to the stock headlights as the new ones will not have that option.***

    Hope this helps

    I like these headlights a lot, but I wouldn't run the halos.

    Re: Cts v dual halo aftermarket headlights.

    ok I feel so confused. I have a few questions. I have just bought an 05 V, all stock, does it already have hid's in it? according to Edmunds.com's review of the 05 V it says the car comes with Xenon hid's. So will this mean i have to only buy certain kind of headlights? I am looking at these www.protuninglab.com/hidxe03cacts.html has anyone ordered from them before? Do they look like quality lights? They said they will pre-install the conversion kit (if I need it) I am unsure because all places only list CTS lights but not CTS-V lights. Are they the same? I am a complete noob when it comes to this so all detailed information would be greatly appreciated. I just want the dual halos, with HID's, and with minimal modifications. thanks in advance!

    You already have HIDs. if you want a different color light you have to but new D1S bulbs. IF you buy the dual halo headlights from ebay they use a different bulb size for the low beam projectors. I believe it is an H7 in which case you would need to buy a full H7 HID kit (ballast and all). I'd recommend DDM tuning as they are cost effective and lifetime warrantied.

    I need all new assemblies. anybody know where I can just get new OEM headlight assemblies for my car? I like the look of the stock ones but they are oxidized bad and I just need new ones. The only place I have found was JC Whitney for $445 for the pair. Seems like a lot.

    Try refinishing them first with a 3M headlight repair kit before giving up on them.

    Stock OEM with wiper options? You're talking ALOT of money new from anywhere from what I've seen.

    I would've tried that but they are badly scratched. I mean deep. I'm not sure what happened to them or what the previous owner had done.

    Here is where I get confused. I am new to the CTS-V but I don't have any headlight wipers. Are you saying that I have that as an option with these lights? I have read how a lot of folks are disappointed at the aftermarket lights not having wipers, but I currently don't have them, nor have I ever recall seeing a V with them.

    That's what they all do. Previous owner probably had nothing to do with it.

    None of them have wipers. We do have headlight sprayers (the little triangles pop out and spray). The aftermarket ones don't have this function.

    The triangles will pop out and spray the headlight when you activate the windshield washer. Your headlights have to be turned on for the headlight washers to work. Check this out http://m.youtube.com/watch?sa=X&v=0N...ved%3D0CBMQqwQ
