    Hello all. I recently upgraded from my 2012 Chevy Cruze Eco to a 2015 Cruze LT. We are going to be spending a lot more time traveling and on back Montana roads in the coming days. Among many other upgrades (which I will be posting shortly), I upgraded to 55W 6000k HID bulbs, with harness, etc...

    I'm looking to buy these headlights from carID: Spec-D:registered: LHP-CRU11G-TM - Chevy Cruze 2014 Gloss Black Projector Headlights with LED DRL They come with halogen bulbs but they have a projector lens so could I replace it with a xenon bulb/hid kit? I would assume it's better then having...

    I am looking for a set of stock housings to ply around with a retro fit. I don't want to mess up mine in case I screw up, and my Cruze is my dd so I can't have it down for the couple days I might need. Looking for something cheap if anyone here has put after market headlights in. Thanks in...

    I just bought my neighbor's wife's 2011 1LT -RS. IN less than 6 days the left side fog/headlights don't work. They are HID and he told me it's not under warranty because it's after market. Does anyone know how much this will cost to fix? He has the regular lights at his house and say he...

    I came up with an idea last night, and I realize I'm certainly NOT the first person who thought of it (evidenced by a quick Google search - :lol: Anyone ever done it? Thought about it? Seen it in action in real life? I'm not trying to blind someone behind me, but it would serve a few awesome...

    I have installed HID'S in several vehicles before but this is the first time working with bi xenon. I'm struggling to find a good fuse to use as a power source. If I hook it straight up to the battery, they never shut off. Which fuse should I use?

    I have a 2014 Cruze 2LT, RS Package. I am trying to get some nice led light strip headlights, with the halo rings and HID headlights. It seems that most of them are only compatible with 2011 to 2013, was there some type of change between the years? Or will the headlights still work with my 14?

    I installed my HID's today. They're 10000k bi-xenons. But when I shut the car off, only the passenger one stays on for the delay lights. And then when I hit the unlock button on the key fob they both come on. Anybody know why this happens? Not too worried about it just found it kind of odd

    Alright before you guys flame me, and say i'm stupid, I had no clue that it was a bad idea to put hid's in the stock housings, this is my first kit i've bought and had installed in any car i've had in 9 years. The more I look at it thought the less I want to buy projectors. I bought yellow...

    Since we have had so many posts in the last few months about HIDs and with all the confusion between housings available in the aftermarket realm... I figured I'd make a go to post for everyone. I know we have similar posts on this topic but none seem to cover the differences in Projector...

    Added a new set of DRL's today, and will start running the car with the automatic lights switched off, and just these DRL's. They are in a horizontal bar, in the Mercedes style, and really add a nice look, IMO. First pic is with all lights off, second with just DRL's on, third is with HID...
