Thanks JefferyG for the examples. Does anyone know if there is a certain code anywhere on the vehicle to tell whether they are HID or not? I'm having a hard time telling whether or not mine are, they are projector beams but I can't tell the difference even with the pics.
Well the HID lights only came on the 2000-2001 Catera Sports. So if you have the sport then you have HIDs. I have the sport and the Xenon lights are very distinguishable.
Also the rear lights are LED and I like them, they look so cool, It also helps with brake warning as the LED lights appear faster than conventional bulbs. I forget the number but I think on the highway its something like 17 meters of extra warning time for the driver behind you. The turning signals in the rear are also orange LED.
Also with my Xenon headlights, i keep getting flashed although they are not on highbeams, someone told me I have to get them realigned.
The car is a 2001 and has 17 000 miles on it, is it possible they have to be aligned already and if so how would I do that?
its kinda bluish, but when you drive down the street in the city i live in, you can definately tell they are Xenons cus with all the other vehicles around they look yellow and I would say that in my town only 2 percent of the cars have Xenons so it is easily distinguishable.
I know this cus im so obsessed with my car i got my dad to drive it will i followed him around so I could see what it looks like on the road! (from all angles)
Yeah the lights are definately that classic xenon color but i think in my area ppl are not use to them and they think since they are brighter than the average car that the highbeams must be on.
Also if you pull up to a garage or something at night and make sure your lights haven't been on for an hour or so turn them on and they should kind of flash dim and then get real bright because the have to warm up. My 2000 Catera Sport has them,
yeah that is exactly what my car does, its parked in front of my garage and everytime i start it up, the get brighter. If you stand outside you can actually hear something its hard to explain but its a cool sound. The engine can't be on, my light go on as soon as I turn the alarm off.
Wazup caddy peoples? I'm also looking for Either OEM hid lights or and hid product that would work well for my 2000 caters(not a sports model.) If anyone could offer me any info it would be greatly appreciated
I dont know , I dont know , I dont know... which is the reason in the first place I started this thread. Because I didnt know ! Lol.
Anyone with any valuable information should post here, I have found that there were some matches that came up when I did a nation wide junkyard search for headlights... I just never responded to the email and now its been too late.
So they're out there (assuming), I just dont know the model numbers/part numbers which is the true goal here... to find those out.
So right now my current status on this project is:
