    xenon head lamps for all STS V?

    Looking at STS V to buy and it does not say that the headlights are HID's. Are all STS V HID headlights? Thanks in advance!

    No. I believe they came standard from 2008 up. The VIN should say.

    ----------

    The option code was TT6.

    ----------

    And
    TQ5 - HEADLAMPS, INTELLIBEAM-HIGH BEAM CONTROL

    I have never seen one that was not hid. I think it was standard even it they show it as An option.

    I think you are correct. Just checked online. All V's came fully loaded. I didn't know those built in 2006 had that option.

    I have a 2007 V and my build sheet has the
    TQ5 code for Intelli beam headlights, so I guess not all v's
    Have HID.

    To have tq5 you must have tt6

    Intellibeam is also known as automatic hi-beam feature. Switches from low to high as needed.

    My RPO has both codes

    I think you should be able to tell HID's from regular lights. The headlight assembly looks the same but the intensity of the light is not

    They all switch automatically from high to low beam, mine is on the rearview mirror and only works once button is pressed, but all STS-V's have HID's I own 06'

    The ONLY option when ordering the 06 STS-V was to delete the sun roof.

    Re: xenon head lamps for all STS V?

    Does anyone have the part number for my 08 headlights? I want to buy a spare set to do some custom work on, but I wasn't sure if the v headlights were the same as the non v's?
