    HID Installation?

    Anyone have any suggestions as to where one could get a HID conversion kit installed? I'd love to have it done to my CTS but I'm not too mechanic-savvy... don't wanna mess anything up! Any help would be greatly appreciated... thanks

    I'm in the Toronto area

    Most of the sets are plug and play , no wire cutting .
    They are very easy to install .

    You would most likely have a hard time having a dealership installing them .

    You would have more luck with a small local owned shop .

    You reckon it might be simple enough for a newbie to install? I'd give it a shot if I knew of others skill-challenged like me that were able to install it without too much hassle... thanks for the reply, btw.

    Just make sure you read the directions .

    If your car has DRL's (Daytime running lights ) you will need to disable them .

    Unplug and plug the new kit in , the hardest thing , would be drilling a hole to mount the transformers .

    i know a guy that runs a online store and im sure if you buy them from him he can install them for you...kinda just a guy i know from another car forum...if you want his e mail send me a e mail at atomic_156@hotmail.com the store is called garage16.
    otherwise i would recomend going to a car audio shop....they usually do stuff like that there too.
    but the kits are really easy hardest thing from what i have read is just finding places to put the balast, other than that plug them in and turn them on
