    Why ?

    What's wrong with your current set up ?

    The 2005 - 09 headlights have a different wiring config, although the connectors are the same, what year is yours ?

    2003 - 05 need 16-way connectors to upgrade to 2010 type lights ...

    There are kits out there on the Bay of E, but it's not cheap ... about a ton a side ... have a Google around for vid tips too ...

    Dunno ...

    Have a look at your connectors and the ones from the car you wish to buy from ....

    You might need other things too ... like ballasts for the indicators ...

    Do what I did just buy a set of LED bulbs they run at less wattage and are around 6000 candle power, I have changed all my bulbs to LED type. All from Ebay.

    You will need more than a wiring adaptor.

    Not sure, Saint V8 would know, but I expect you might need the LCM and maybe they would need to be programmed in.
    HID's are HiDeouS blinding things that should be banned and if a lamp goes pop it can create havoc with the electronics, something Saint V8 knows only too well.
    If you cannot see with the normal lamps, maybe you should avoid driving at night.
