Does anyone have the clear chromed headlights installed from eBay? I'm really considering buying them, but I want to know what they look like installed. If anybody has some pics of them installed, I'd appreciate a post!

Check out the STS. The STS looks almost identical to the CTS from the front, with 1 major difference being the chrome headlights. I dont know why Cadillac ever thought grey plastic looked nice.

Yeah, I actually did look at the STS in trying to get an idea of what they might look like. Just trying to get some actual pics of those exact headlights installed. I've been bothered by the gray forever, I hate that they chose that material, so them finally releasing chrome headlights was a DREAM come true.

If you're like me, you're gonna want to see some night pics so here you go. I tried to get the best possible angle on these shots because the light emitting from my hids blinded my camera.

Bulb sizes are the same.9005 for high beams and 9006 for low beams. I was able to reuse the hid kits I had in the stock housing. Now if they only sold the clear fogs, id get them in a heartbeat. I know I can make them clear,though.

Very nice. I'm thinking about getting a pair of these, once I focus on getting another raise. LOL

I bet those are not offered for cars equipped with factory HID's, correct?

What would you need to replace to get those to work on a HID equipped car? ITs just a wiring issue right, since the the HIDs are wired for D1S? Forgetting about the washer for second....

You'd have to figure out something with the wiper spray from the headlight. Otherwise, I don't think its much else. You'd have to disconnect the washer lines.

So if I have the stock hids w/ washer what would I need to do to instal these headlights? Isn't as easy as just plug n play? And if I did down grade to these non-washer headlights, how much would I be able to roughly resell my used washer equipped headlights if they're in decent condition?

Can you post a couple of pics of the output and cutoff of the projector. I am afraid to get them because they say that the depo projectors that are in the healight assembly sucks.
