I decided to just install an aftermarket HID Kit into my ct200h

Package Content

-2 Slim Ballast
-2 6000k H11 Bulbs
-2 Metal Mounting Plates
-6 Screws and Nuts

Time to install: 30mins -1.5hrs

Red wire (Xenon Kit) ---> Purple wire (
Harness for OEM bulb)
Black wire (Xenon Kit) ---> White/black wire (Harness for OEM bulb)

Installed the mounting plates

Driver side was mounted on a screw holding the fuse box directly behind the driver side headlight

Passenger side will be mounted by the container that holds the pink liquid. You can unbolt the 2 screws that hold the container to tuck the wires behind (underneath) the containers (shown in the second pictured below)

Overall, satisfied with a $60 kit with lifetime warranty on both bulbs and ballast. Although, the periphery illuminance could be better, $60 versus $1200 LED option justifies, in my opinion, the reduced performance.

Wow, great job.

What are the pros & cons of the HIDs? I want all my lights to be bright white, but I don't want any electrical issues or illegal lights.

Can someone shed a little light on this? (no pun intended hehe)
Thanks Feraz.. that definitely helps. I think I better leave well enough alone. I'll just do the whitest LEDs that I can find. One less thing to me to worry about, especially since the dealer already charged me $122 to change my low, high & fogs.
:pI'm too chicken... It would be my luck for something to FRY. I'll just have to stick with my not-so bright Phillips CrystalVison H11 bulbs. That I installed MYSELF. I must admit, those bulbs are not very bright. From the inside, it almost looks like my headlights are not on. Thank goodness for the foglights. I may have to test out another brand or go up to 5000k.

If I don't go any higher than 5000k, then my wonderful, loving husband should NOT give me a ticket. hehe

P.S. Hello lurking husband... ;)
Bob: Good idea! I had Piaa's on my G37 and they were great. I forgot about that brand. I even have some leftover Piaa's...but the wrong bulb size. Darn it! ;-) Thanks Bob
