    They look like they are made for a NON HID cts. Could be wrong but from two round spots for bulbs look like how they are in a non hid car. The factory hid only have one and it handles both the high and low beams.

    Thanks! I just found it on eBay myself but would like to see how it looks on another color before I buy. (hopefully black raven...lol) I really like the look and position of those daytime LEDs.

    Seeing that these are plug and play, they should be an easy swap for CTS with or without HID. I found them when I was looking for the HID headlights and these look great on the darker CTS's.

    I'm really starting to wonder how the DRLs are gonna work. On the non hid lights, the Drls are a lower power version of the low beams. So.....how is it gonna work out? I guess we will find out soon. They will be here Friday. So Sunday will more than likely be the install date when I have time to drop the bumper and all that good stuff.

    To remove the headlights in the CTS, you have to remove the bumper, which is not hard. The headlights literally plug right into the existing wiring, hence plug and play. Unfortunately, GM is to blame for the poor design on that one...

    Called the company today to inquire how 1 headlight design can work for both HID and non-HID setup. Placed on hold for 15min and then hung up. They responded on eBay saying they work with ALL models, just a little skeptical. I like many on here have been waiting a long time for these! Eager to get feedback from those who ordered, I'm ready to try them either way.

    How will they work with the current lights that move with the steering wheel..?
