Forget about trying to find the plug. I've been looking for ages and no one will sell you just that part. You will need to buy the engine wiring loom which is fucking expensive.

anymore info on wiring loom required mxfly?

I've seen a number of HID kits advertised online - are none of these compatible with the Zed?

^ 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.

You dont happen to have a 'how-to' for this do you?
Also where did you get your 06 bi-xenons from? Any 'after' pictures with this setup would be awesome.

Before:



2500 AUD later:





I can post the wire colors and the layout of the pins when I get home. The pins are easy to remove. When you do it this way you don't have to cut wires at all, it's all plug and play.

Thanks for the photos. Looks AMAZING!!!

$2500 later though? ouch. I thought this was just swaping out the bulbs and replacing them. Obviously I have underestimated this little project.

Does this mean I am required to purchase whole new light assemblies? There is no way to just swap out the bulbs?

$2500 is actually a great price. You should call Nissan and find out how much they sell them for.. lol

I can get this set for $1000 if you're interested. They are genuine Jap 04 xenon lights.
