2005 LT low beam HID??

Hi all;

I heard that the 2005 LT had an HID for the low beam. Is it a true HID? Do I need to do a conversation to a true HID.

Regards,
Bowdon

That is a negative. The 05 lights are different than that of the 04 and earlier bikes, but the 06 was the first model with an HID low beam.

The lens on the low beam will say "Xenon" if you have an OEM BMW HID.

If not then you may have an after-market kit, and if not then you WANT to get an after-market kit. HID is spectacular!

Did the conversion to my 05 LT, probably one of the best mods you can make to the LT. why BMW didn't do this as standard is beyond me.

I used this kit others prefer the 5500 kelvin its a personal thing.
