    Same thing here. I can't find the parts for the headlight with HID (performance/premium).

    well its not really that big of a deal, I could do that no problem.. I've taken bumpers off cars before, I would just have a hard time getting the fit perfect again

    I took the bumper off of my V2 to Plasti-Dip the mesh grilles. It's really not that hard. It's all clips, just do it in a process.

    I'm also interested in this as well. I have the Luxary Trim, but I do want to put those HID lights somehow (without effecting the warrenty). I'm browsing online, anything close here at this website?:

    anybody tried to call the Cadillac Dealership they bought their car from and ask if you they can add the lights on their Standard or Luxary Trim?

    People might want to wait and see how Cadillac did the LED/HID option for the 2014 Luxury model. The 2013 lights contain motors to aim them in to turns and adjust where they point when not turning. So retrofitting them will definitely involve buying expensive parts that can't be used and figuring out how to deactivate them and also figuring some way to manually aim them. Since the Luxury buyers who want the LEDs and HIDs don't seem to care about the adaptive feature, it would make sense for Cadillac to delete that from the 2014 Luxury LED/HID option. If Cadillac did that, retrofitting the 2014 option to 2013 cars may be much easier and cheaper.

    I asked that right before getting my car. After they did some research, they said it's not doable
