Looking to get away from the HID DS1 bulbs. i have replace my HIDs in my motorcycle with H4 HPLEDs and also in my Jeep, but not in the Cadillac. The dealer has no input, can find only low beam units online. the HID is low and hi beam. Looking for an High Performance LED bulb that cools well, and is plug and play in the caddy with no problem with existing electronics i.e. no warning lights etc. The ones in the bike are 5000 low and 10000 high lumens at 76 watts each. Work well but are not made for the cadillac.
Anyone do an upgrade. Did you have to go with a solenoid to the battery, any problem with fuses or wiring being too small for higher wattage than 35 watts the HID bulb uses. Did you have any heat problem, one aftermarket one got very hot. i have had no heat problems on the bike. Been on for 3 years.

I would appreciate it. VegasDTS

I did an LED retrofit on a customer's car a few months ago and it's been working great, he got tired of replacing bulbs and ballasts, his car kept having issues every 3 months or so even with different headlight housings. Contrary to what I was told, the LEDs are noticably brighter than the 6000k HID's in my DTS, I had both cars there so I was able to compare side-by-side. here's the writeup I did for a facebook group back when I did the install, it's surprisingly simple and totally removes the ballast from the system, it's only a block-off plate afterwards. High beams still work and no errors at all
on the amazon site, it does not say that it does low beam and hi beam. I have H4s on my bike and it does 5000 lo and 1000 high. Does this give you low and hi beam at the same time or just low or just high. Some LEDs for DS1 replacement show only low beam, not both.
