I found a set of 2011 Escalade Platinum Headlights online for sale. Will they work on an 08 Ext if i install them?

They should work with the right harness, I guess you want platinum headlights because your HID's are too bright? Then get the platinum headlights because you will find they are not as bright as what you have, trust me I have had 8 of these trucks, 5 non platinums and 3 platinums. :) I have though about going back to HID's for the areas I drive, the HID's just throw MUCH MORE light futher out than the led's

I could make overlays so they would look like platinums but really be hid's, well maybe not

You mean the platinum headlights don't use HID for the main headlight? Really? Weird. I can't imagine that an LED could ever produce enough light to use as main headlights. I thought the LEDs are just for the aux lighting?

Pretty bright especially when you add a pair of 55watt HID's :)

I got one for you, a customer came over yesterday with a new Escalade light setup that has 3 HID's per light, one each low beam and 2 each high beams, and with high beams all 6 HID's are lite at once, they can each be adjusted for up and down and left and right, they have led DRL in a vertical strip. I am getting a set but don't want to put them in one of the platinums so I will put them in my new 2007 truck and then post some pics, but talk about daylight 6 HID's. He told me I was the "light guy" after seeing and hearing about the 3rd brake lights. :)

I would like to see that HID headlight. Are you doing anything with the third light on the EXT? Sequential turn signal? Brighter?

Nothing on the EXT yet, just do not know anyone with one right now. I have been playing with the different options I am sure you have seen some that do one to three blinks and does it sequentially, I can make them into turn signals, but that looked like a Christmas display, but I believe there are several hundred options that can be programmed. I have been playing around with the brightness, they are much brighter than in my pics on my web site and in person, it's a fine line of the most light output while keeping the electric draw at around factory levels
