Putco HID Bulbs on 09' CTS Hey all,
My 09' CTS came with some of the extra add-ons, sadly the HID headlights was not one of them. I saw these bulbs elsewhere and wanted to see if anyone can answer this. http://www.etrailer.com/Lights/Cadil...eid=2009649658
1. Are these the factory bulbs ( or something like them anyways ) that would come in the car from the dealership?
2. It notes there is a built in burner, does this mean I do not need ballasts? For instance you just pop the bulbs in and whalah you have the same HID setup they install at the dealer?
3. Can I put them in my 09' CTS that did not come with HIDs installed.
Thanks all! 1. No
Those bulbs will only fit a car that came with hid lights from factory. These bulbs have a higher kelvin rating.. It will emit a more white/ blue light than a stock bulb.
Save some money buy the HID headlight from eBay. Direct swap. That's what I did.
