Talking Installed HIDs on a 2013 Today! (tips for installation)

Hey everyone! We had a 2013 in the shop today to test out a lot of new awesome goodies (will post more about those soon )

He also wanted HIDs so we installed our H7 Conversion Kit ($80) with Adapters (just $10!) and relay. He chose 4300K.

When our installation guy Andrew found out bumper removal was required, he wasn't too happy. But this thing is by far the easiest bumper we have ever worked with.

Just take off all the plastic screws along the top for the Air Dam/ Intake. Takes about 2 minutes. Then it's just the one screw in the wheel well and two on the bottom. Another 2 minutes. Pull out, starting with each side. Make sure to put a towel over one side when it's out if you're doing it by yourself, so it doesn't damage the fender when you pull out the other side. Then just pull straight out and off! Really not difficult at all. Took about 10 minutes.

Feel free to give us a call if you run into any trouble with the installation on 2013 (whether you have our kit or not). 314-205-3033

Here's Andrew finishing up the install. Sorry, we didn't have enough time to do a full video for you guys



Finished product (he also got stage 2 LEDs)

The yellow DRL in the headlights. How would that look with White LED bulb in there?

Since that is the hi-beam we do not recommend replacing it with a LED, but a HID would be fine.

whats the difference in stages? it looks like you end up getting the same lights?


NVM: i think i found it. the higher the stage, the brighter it is. correct? Also, what are MAP lights?

They are definitely not the same light, each light has a different number of LEDs. Stage one is slightly dimmer then a stock bulb. Stage 2 is slightly brighter then a a stock bulb. Stage three is much brighter then stock. Let me know if you have any further questions!

I put GP Thunder 7500K in that slot, looks white during the day, even better at night if you need to turn them on. I agree w/ DD's response, I would not put LED there in the event you truly need hi-beams on, LEDs won't cut it. GP Thunders for under $15 is ur best bet, imo.
