@wildybeast Hi they look lovely, l have a 2018 caddy 7 seater in white,
I am looking to upgrade, currently l have normal halogen lights, can you plug and play with coding as extra or do l need additional components? Would like to hear from you thanks.

Xenon
Headlight units fit the same.
Plug is in different position - need to cut back loom tape to allow plug to reach new position.
Re-tape with Scapa tape for OEM look. Tessa for next best.

Need all parts in the How-to.
35W Lamp for upgrade (instead of 25W)
35W Ballast (ditto)

Add semi-circular cutout to bulb base to match 25W base.
35W vs 25W

I cut the small key off the plugs in the headlight unit (easier than the ballast & headlight sockets)
