    Default Adding HID headlights

    I was taking a look at this video which adds HIDs to the 1st gen. Chrysler 200. I personally like the contrast between regular halogens and the LED trim at night, but the visibility could improve. I have a few concerns to anyone who’s swapped their lights:


    1. Have you encountered glitches or technical problems after swapping the OEM lights? Better no to mess with em?
    2. Is there an easier way to change these? I was impressed with this video due to the quality of the lights from this particular brand. Cheaper but still good brand perhaps?
    3. Does having HID make it hard to see the normal LED strip? I like how the strip looks “mercedez’ish” but if you can’t notice the strip with the HID then that would be a sad change.


    Thanks all! I may even get some HID fog lamps as well to complete the package.

    Did you get a kit for LEDs like wiring hardness and what not? Or are the two just bulb replacements. I know on these cars going HID you need a can bus kit... do you need that with the LED. I don't understand manufacturers, if you put projector lamps why don't you put HID or LED. I know cost but still.

    This is actually the kit I was refering to. I forgot to copy it on the original post

    With their coupon on their online vid you can get it for like 130. I'm sure it's worth it, and the to-do video is fairly simple. I'd probably take the kit to a local shop and they'll probably do it for cheap.

    This is definitely my next on the list mod.
