  4. HID - what are they, how do you install?

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    I've never installed HID in an automobile before, but I know that cars with HID's look great at night. I was under the impression that an HID was just a bulb that you can buy and put in your headlight assembly, and then boom, the job is done. 5 minutes. I'm starting to get the impression that...

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    First of all, don't be an idiot and buy two kits like I did. One kit is enough for one car. Next, to replace the stock lights, you need to remove the bumper and then remove the headlights. This is a good tutorial: But, if you're fairly handy, your goals...
