    Hey dudes. Do you guys think the lower led lights would look good on a second generation CTS? They look sexy on my XTS, but I don't have fog lights on my CTS. I wonder if the XTS and ATS lower lights are different sizes too.

    how do i wire them
    The DRL's run at 2 different brightness intensities, One is High for daytime and one is low for at night. This is why there are 3 wires on them Ground,High and Low. I purchased an ATS a month ago and will be doing the same mod as well as the headlamps.

    They would not fit, the ATS DRL is way too tall

    Technically they become parking lights at that point but yes they run at night as well

    Re: Finally intalled the OEM DRL and HID on a luxury ATS

    I have been looking into doing this to my ATS. I have the exact figures and part numbers but not in front of me right now. I did some research with some automotive collision estimating software to come up with one main fact. There is only one bumper used, therefore the lights are interchangeable between all levels of the ATS.
    All you really need are the following hard parts:

    Left and right --- what GM calls "driving lights" --- Can be found new for around $115 each
    Left and right --- bumper inserts --- one is around $45 and the other around $85
    Left and right --- Not sure what those little chrome bars are called --- around $60 each

    But Yohaishi may have answered the question that I have not been able to look at my ATS to figure out yet. He said that he wired them into the headlight circuit. I still need to get mine in the air to see if the plugs are actually there in the existing harness to power the lights. I have a hard time believing that they wouldn't be there but I also feel that Yohaishi had enough technical know how to install the lights he probably would have seen the connectors if they were there.

    A word about the upper led and headlight assemblies, to start with they are over $1000 each and replacement GM bulbs are $300 each, that's expensive. The other issue to think about is that those headlights are "adaptive" I am not sure that if you did spend the money they would function properly. I am sure that the Body Control Module would have to have the programming to operate the "adaptive" lights and that programming is probably not there. I think Yohaishi made a good choice in going with what appears to be an aftermarket HID conversion light kit for the headlights.

    If anyone is truly interested post a comment and I will come back and post all of the part numbers and list prices for the lower lights.

    Nice job Yohaishi !!! Mine is next !!![COLOR="Silver"]

    Yohaishi??
    Can you tell us what HID conversion kit you used??
