Installed HIDs

I installed HIDs today on my car.

I purchased these https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NRVCJ6W

I had to drill out the dust cap so the wires could fit through.

I have a warning light canceller on the driver side https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HTOB0NG

I didn't use a relay harness

It's still not dark enough yet outside to really get a good feel for them. I will post back later.

Re: Installed HIDs

OK. Here's some night pics. One is with low beams and the other is with high beams

I know there is light scatter above the cut off line, but it isn't much and I don't know how bad it is for oncoming cars. I didn't get any flashes from cars so it might be OK. I will have to have someone drive towards me and have them tell me what it looks like.

Re: Installed HIDs

Nice! Do they blink or anything when the Auto Stop/Start kicks in? My LED's blink when the car starts back up out of Auto Stop.

Re: Installed HIDs

I have the same kit and would love some pics of the install, location of ballasts, etc. Any info would be greatly appreciated!

Sure. I will try to snap some pics today.

I also had to hook up the second warning light canceller to the passenger side as I was getting warnings in my dash about needing to service the driver assist system. I also had flickering from that light.

Re: Installed HIDs

I've had these lights on my last few vehicles, never had to install a canceller. Is that normal?

Not sure. I've never had a brand new car that I put HIDs in so I can't relate.

here are pics. It's kind of hard to see the dust cap, but basically I drilled out a section between the tabs.

Re: Installed HIDs

Can you post pics of your lights up against the wall? I want to compare my light scatter to someone else.
