Here is some more information

High Intensity Discharge (H.I.D.) is a type of lighting technology that replaces the filament of the light bulb with Xenon gas. The gas is ignited to produce an arc of light, when high voltage is applied. The amount of light output is three times that of a standard halogen bulb. The lamps also glow at a higher light temperature (closer to natural sunlight) that gives it its distinct color and appearance.

Xenon is actually xenon-filled halogen bulbs produce little or no more light output than standard halogen bulbs of the same wattage. Some companies produce halogen bulbs that are gas-filled. They still have a filament as they are halogen technology, but the gas gives the bulb a bluer color when lit.

So i think what u want is a HID conversion kit

Cool.. If you have a chance of posting the pinout it would be fantastic.

Hey guys,

The wiring layout is posted below:

03 non-HID

(This is looking into the plug on the headlight)

6 Pins labeled like below

1 2 3
4 5 6

1 - Black (Ground for Low and High Beams)
2 - Light Green (Positive for High Beam)
3 - Green\Black (Positive for Turn Signal)
4 - Red (Positive for Low Beam)
5 - Green\White (Positive for Parker lights)
6 - Black (Ground for Parkers and Turn Signal)

This is the layout for both sides...

06 Bi-Xenon Pin out

(This is looking into the plug on the headlight)


8 Pins labeled like below

1 2 3 4
5 6 7 8


1 - Black (Ground for Low and High Beams)
2 - Light Green (Positive for High Beam)
3 - Green\Black (Positive for Turn Signal)
4 - Red (unknown)
5 - Black (Ground for Parkers and Turn Signal)
6 - Red (Positive for Low Beam)
7 - Green\White (Positive for Parker lights)
8 - Blue (unknown)

This layout is the same for both sides...

pin 4 and pin 8 : these are used to tilt the projector up slightly when the high beams are activated. I didn't use these with my setup as I cound't find any info about them in the wiring diagram.

PS: SilverZed - in the second pic down you posted - is that led foggies??
Yes they are LED parkers. I didn't like the blank plastic bits so, I made the LED parkers.

Silly question. When you say u swapped the pins to make to the new layout how did you overcome the different style plug? ie: If your OEM harness has a 6 pin conector and the new lights require a 8 pin plug how did you just swap the pins?

^ it's pretty easy to swap the pins in the non-hid lights to fit the HID lights. I just swapped out my 03 non hid's with the 06 bi-xenon lights and just changed the pins on the plug.

I changed my 03 model to HID lights. Real easy to install and the light is bright as.

The output is great. Its the Xenon Lamp system- HID conversion Kit.

Thanks a bundle for the wiring info. Managed to get a set of used 03 plugs from a set of damaged lights in the US. Followed the wiring and works perfectly. HID's are so much nicer..

And also thx to MXFLY for the lights.
