What would the process of adding factory hid and projectors be? I have the regular halogen setup but would love the factory hids. Has anyone done this upgrade?

Someone posted a how-to, a while back, to do exactly this.
Best to search. I don't know where the thread is.
My halogens are pretty marginal. I feel your pain.

Factory halogens are terrible. If i'm on a back road by myself, high beams stay on.

Someone here has done it. I think his s/n started with an "M"..maybe Mush or something like that. But I believe he has now sold the car and moved on to a 300srt8.

The HIDs on the SRT8 are the first I ever drove with. I think they have good beam spread, sharp cutoff, and more intensity than many non-HID modern cars. But they are not a WOW.

I was disappointed in the intensity and reach of the high beam, but later learned it is not HID, just a modern halogen.

The overall power of the HID low beam is less than the Cibie halogens I used in my '70s cars.

After this experience with HID I think the only place HID excels is in low energy input (only about 35 watts versus 55 to 100 watts for my Cibie halogens).
