XC70 Halogen To Hid Conversion

Post by hilliamonk » Fri Jul 26, 2019 6:56 am

Hello all. I want to convert a 2015 xc70 t5 drive-E model from a stock halogen to a stock HID system. Any suggestions?
I'll purchase the stock HID headlight housings, ballasts, etc.
Will the HID harness plug in to the stock system?

It's much easier to run LED's. No housing replacement. cheaper to start with and maintain.

It's worth looking at theretrofitsource.com
I can't help you with conversion as my 2010 XC70 is already HID, but I purchased 2 replacement ballasts and a pair of low beams from them. They have lots of kits, and a good number of informational and instructional videos on YouTube.
