    Post picture of your cars headlight.

    If your car did not come stock with HID lights then don't bother buying those bulbs (link to amazon) because they will not fit your car.

    Does your headlight look like

    Top pic (#1) is a standard headligh no HID
    #2 is an HID headligh.

    I thought someone here did a conversion from non-HID to the HID headlights. is it worth the extra money or is it better to just bulb swap to a HID bulb?

    Re: 2008+ HID Question

    Sorry i havent been on much. I just want to say Thanks to the two members who PM'ed me about this. Your ideas are basically the same. I will exchange with a 6000K d1s bulb and see if it works. I was under the impression if you change the bulb temp then you have to get a new ballist.

    Thanks again guys. I like the fact that people actually help members on this site!

    Re: 2008+ HID Question

    Long story short, I changed my ugly 4000k headlights ( yellow ) to 6000K (white/Blue ) and they look amazing. It took me about 2 hours to get bumper off and figure how to get the bulb out. Now I know how to do it if it happens I need to change it again!! FYI, bulbs are 30.00 on ebay and come with lifetime warranty.
