I was going to do that on my 07 STS as well. Although I found out through my fathers place that it was $200 each headlight which is too much in my opinion. Instead I just purchased the HID's for my headlights from Top PSI Performance for $150 with a one year warranty. The HID's however on the STS V8 aren't that bright as say the Escalade or DTS. So with my personal likings I perferred these HID's from Top PSI. I got the 4500K (Diamond White). I also have HID's (8000K- Bluish) for my fogs.

Hope it helps!

Interesting. I wonder if Top PSI swells a better bulb for my already HID V8 STS that would be brighter. Also, the high-beams are not HID and not really "brighter." Any suggestions?

I know people who have upgraded their existing HID's to aftermarket because their brighter. To make sure ask Top PSI for clarification. Im still waiting for mine, will post pics!

I used a hid kit conversion kit on my 05 and I am really happy with the results. I chose to go with a 6000k bulb for a lil more blue.
