Thank you for your order! I have not personally installed HIDs on the DTS but you basically want the ballasts secured anywhere they will hold tight. I imagine for the fogs there is some room under there.

John

im sure there is some space to mount them, i just wouldnt know where.

thanks for the prompt reply. :)

i did some research on these forums and all the positive things people said about your HID's it was no question where to buy them from.

thanks for the good price & the facebook discount!

I just installed mine the other day, the plugs are reversed polarity so you will have to hook them up backwards with the OEM connector. There is info on the SharpHID website explaining this. I hooked mine up and the lights didn't work and was baffled but after reading the troubleshooting I reversed them and all was well they are awesome by the way!

ive read the same exact thing.
i was a little more worried about buying an adaptor or whatever from sharphid for extra $$$.

hopefully the lights arrive by this friday so i can put them in before the weekend.
hurry up and ship them john lol

ok the lights arrived today!!! (thanks john)

do i have to remove the entire front light assembly to get the old light out / new hid light in or what?

im a little confused here as this past weekend when i went to change my front turn signal, i couldnt figure out how to remove the old bulb.

any help would be appreciated

Hello,
I have not personally done an installation on that vehicle so I don't know. I'm sure there are posts here on the forum related to it from other customer's having done it. How you dismantle your car is up to you - the kit simply needs to connect to your OEM plug.

Anyone else have some information on this?

John

There are three bolts holding the headlight in. You have to take them out and drill a 1 inch hole in the removable covers that access the bulbs. Then plug them in pretty much. You will have to reverse the plug when plugging in the OEM power plug to the new harness because it is reverse polarity and will not work at all connected the other way.

john....great product with the HIDs.
what a difference driving at night.

thank you so much.

only thing is i shouldve bought the 55 watt regular lights and keep my 35 watt fogs.
oh well......(any exchanges lol)

you have a solid customer here and will be in contact soon for lights for my wife's 2010 honda accord

Thank you for the great feedback! I'm glad you like the kits. Unfortunately we can't exchange the kit once used but the components are all compatible with each other if you have another vehicle you want a 35w kit on. Our bulbs will work on either a 35w or 55w ballast.

I'd love to see some photos if you have any.

Regards,
John

Hi, i have a quesion. i have 2000 DHS too, if i install the HID do i need to install Projector too ?

Thank you for posting your questions. Projectors are not required for HIDs and are not necessarily recommended depending on your application. The simplest way to upgrade to HIDs is to get the kit in the bulb type required for your existing headlights. The improvement will be astonishing and you will find your existing lights are more than sufficient.

i see. thank you so much. so what is the kit you recoment i should buy and does it plug and play ?
i don't want rewire my car. and i don't know what kind of bulb my car have too.
and should i choose 55W or 35W. i saw in your site the 55W brighter but does it hurt my Electronic ?

how come in your DTS Deville you had to drill holes in the back of the headlamps ? is that what your saying

It's not all that easy to see, but here's where my HID ballast are

on this one, if you look near the bottom of the picture you will see the back (rear) of the headlamp assembly. The cover that conceals the bulbs inside the headlamp unit needs holes in it to accommodate the larger sized wiring from the HID unit. Hope this is more helpful, than confusing.

You need a 1" hole to accept the new wiring into the headlight. We include a rubber grommet to seal this hole surrounding the wires going into it.

so is this just on the devilles that need a hole drilled ?

This applies to almost all installations on any vehicles that have a headlight cap without holes already. You may want to browse our installation guides to see other vehicle's installs as all installs are essentially the same. http://store.sharphid.com/category_s/136.htm
