How to install your aftermarket headlights

Hi guys,
Sorry for delay. But I do some updates for you!
Since I hadn't installed the headlights for the customer since bad weather during last weekend. We have rescheduled to this weekend. However, I know some of you cannot wait anymore. So I open a new thread to keep you updated and share my suggestions about how to install headlights.

Step 1: Package
When you receive the package, please check out everything because it's shipped from overseas, no one knows what happened inside. But I can promise you, all items have been fully tested before sending out. You may see a hole in the plastic bag. The HID kit will be in the package as well. But adapters, fog lights and instructions may send you separately. Depends on what you ordered. I have asked my provider to reinforce the package and boost the shipping speed. It should be safe until you receive it. Usually, you will receive the package in two weeks. If you have been waiting over three weeks, please contact me asap!


Step 2: install HID bulbs
It's time to install HID now. The headlights support D2H 35W HID or H7 55W max bulbs. You are free to get any brand HIDs by yourselves. You only need two bulbs for headlights, because there are two LEDs on high beam position already.
Open the low beam door, take out two DRL power supplies and secure them inside of the headlights.


Next, remove the lock first. Then put the bulbs into the lens. Turn the lock and secure the bulbs. Make sure they are tight enough.



Step 3: install ballasts on the headlights
The ballasts are thin with industric shield power wires. They are heavy duty and anti high temperature. You are free to find a best way you like to organize them. Just make sure they are fixed.



Alright, you have preinstalled the HIDs. It may take you 30-40 minutes. Let me know if anyone has questions.
I will update the rest after weekend.

Do the ballasts have to be INSIDE the headlights? I have them mine outside the headlights with zip ties. If the ballast goes bad, which it probably will considering the look of it, you would have to remove everything again. No offense, but those ballasts look kind of cheap. Then again, most people here already have their own hid kits, so we are mostly interested in the headlights.

Also, If you could post how to actually remove the headlights without taking off the bumper? You said you were going to show us an easier to remove them.

Come on. It's just $50 hid kit. Good for most people. You can get you own HID no issue at all. And I'm trying to use LED bulbs instead of HID in the future. Will be easier than HID.

Alright, let's start to install the headlights. You need a Phillips screwdriver and some sockets.
Step1. remove all screws on the upper of the bumper.


Step2: remove screws on two sides of the bumper

Be careful, there is a small one on the bottom.


Step3: pull out the bumper

Take off that grey pieces, your new headlights will need them.
There are two screws on the side of the headlights. After you remove them and unplug the harness, you will be able to take off you old headlights.

Step4: install the new ones.
After you plug the harness back in, your headlights are good to go for basic functions. (low/high beam, parking lamp, turn signal)
For DRL, there is a control box in the box. You need to do a quick wiring. I will send another instruction to each customer about this.
A new GT was born last week.

Whoa...so it's possible to install GT headlights to Sport or Touring trim? I always wondered about that.
