    That's a pretty sold set of beams for only 35 watt bulbs. Color me impressed. Definitely looks like a viable option for when my lenses start to deteriorate.

    Looks like there are several cts headlamps with the hid ballast included. Which seller are people going with? Thanks

    Do the halos have a strong blue tint? See too many people w/ light upgrades on cars that are just strong blue "HID" lights. Most of your pics show more of a clean white, but some show more of a blue color. Nice phone case btw.

    Well the halos are 7000k CCFL's. So a pretty bright white at night. And the low beams are a 6000k 35w hid. And I just made custom fog lights and changed those to 6000k hids aswell to match

    Re: Cts v dual halo aftermarket headlights.

    Hi gang,
    I just got my set of dual halo headlights off ebay. I opted for the 35w 6000K HID version.
    got them from this store:
    http://stores.ebay.ca/ctrusaStore?_trksid=p4340.l2563


    I have a 2007 3.6L with Performance & Appearance package, so I will need to replace the stock HID lights with the after-market ones.
    Does anyone have pictures of how they wired the after-market ones? Also, any insight on how to best "decommission" the headlight washers?

    I will take pictures when I get the courage to install these, but the CTS is my daily driver so I can't have her apart for long trying to experiment with the connections.

    Any insight or helpful links appreciated!!

    Thanks.

    Re: Cts v dual halo aftermarket headlights.

    Those lights don't work with your factory headlight set-up; atleast that's what the disclaimer on the website says....only the factory halo headlight setup.
    "03-07 Cadillac CTS ( Fit Halogen Type ONLY, DOES NOT FIT CTS with stock Xenon HID )"
    Whether you can rewire and disconnect your headlamp washers, Idk


    Your stock headlights w/ factory HID, and headlamp washers are 10x nicer than any aftermarket headlight, even the halo's IMO
    You will lose resale value of your car by getting rid of your factory HID lights. So if you do take them out, keep them, and put them back in if you ever sell your car!

    I did mine on my 04 v. And I can pretty well guarantee you can do this in one afternoon easily. This thread shows earlier in it what wires do what, if you end up needing to rewire anything. And I just plugged off my hoses for my washer hoses. And pulled the fuse for them. No issues as of yet.


    * also I complete disagree with saying the stock look better. Corrosion, scratches, fading does not look good to me. And I know the dual halos that I installed look close to stock. An I have received nothing but compliments on them.

    Also all I did was bought the aftermarket headlights and installed an aftermarket pair of hids.

    Re: Cts v dual halo aftermarket headlights.

    I appreciate your opinion; but I guess since I have the stock halogen without the headlight washers, the stock HID's with headlight washers to me are like the holy grail of headlights

    ALSO: you could always restore your headlights for about $20 to get rid of corrosion, scratching, and fading

    The headlight washers are pretty cool. But hids are hids. Oem or aftermarket they're pretty well the same. And for me I keep my car pretty well perfectly clean 24/7. So other then looking like James bond and having something sweet washing my headlights, I actually never had need for headlight washers.

    Re: Cts v dual halo aftermarket headlights.

    FYI, the price on the dual halos dropped on e-bay quite a bit. Just ordered a set last night for $278.00, here is the link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/03-07-Cadill...0e7024&vxp=mtr

    Side Note: WTF is the point of Headlight washers anyways, I've never seen a single benefit from a wash of my headlights... stupid feature IMO

    Wow those dropped a lot since I bought them. Great deal. Put up pics of your halos when you install them. I'd really like to see how bright they are compared to mine. I think mine might have not been the true 7000k halos.

    Yeah I was shocked when I saw the price last night! I'll post pics for sure, I'm also doing HID's, got 6000k w/ 50 watt ballasts but I may drop to 35 watt once I see the headlights, don't want to melt anything!

    I sold my stock ballasts for $60 each & bulbs for $20 each so that will help pay for these new ones!

    I'd stick with 35w. Mine are considerably brighter then the oem hids.

    And im not gonna lie I'm extremely jealous of that price haha
