Re: installing HID highbeam

Anyone have pics or advise for the High Beam install??? Low beam went out so I ordered both. After opening it up noticed a big difference on how the bulb is mounted compared to the stock high beam bulb...

Re: installing HID highbeam

Sorry Craig, no pictures, but I recall having to grind down part of the bulb holder of the high beam to be able to slide the connector in.
Yup, the high beam on pre-05s is quite more complicated than the low beam as you are also dealing with the grounding wire for both beams.
