u cant just fit xenon globes in a halogen headlight

not only is the base completely different, they require ballasts and ignitors to run

mdz i wouldnt bother with any of those falsely advertised 'xenon' halogen blue coated bulbs, they reduce the light output compared to a normal clear bulb. There are exceptions, like the PIAAs, but they run at nearly twice the wattage to give more output (110w vs stock 55w), so that means twice the operating temps. I cant say 100% whether u can overload the existing wiring like that or whether the headlight will take the heat.

ive used xenondepot.com kits on 2 of my cars and was very happy with the kits. Again plug and play, though the xenondepot kits take power from the battery, rather than relying on the factory wiring, but as such requires a couple more wires be fed through the engine bay with fuses/breakers attached. Not as messy ud think considering on the Z u can hide them inside the battery area and close the lid

i did have a problem with my last kit in that i was sent a defective globe. Steve from xenondepot was very cooperative in sending a replacement, and in the end decided to send me two brand new globes. They have a one year warranty
