Can I replace xenon headlights with standard headlights?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have 06 plate 320cd with xenon headlights and I want to replace them as one got hit and is now cracked. I’ve seen a few non xenon headlights for a good price, would they plug straight into my car? Thanks

Yes but why would you want to? It'd be tricky too as you would need to replace both lamps (not even sure about the loom as yours will have the plugs for the D2S) and re-code your LCM to tell it, it no longer has HID lights.

If you heat up the edges you can get the lens off.. Get a replacement and fit and keep your HID.

Or even cheaper, see if you can repair the crack with those repair kits you can get for windscreens.

Cheers for the reply mate, sounds like a lot of unnecessary work to be honest. Just thought it’d be cheaper to get standard headlights and just fit them with an led light. Also a pair of headlights I saw had the angel eyes on them that I already wanted... Because I’m not going through all that hassle of doing them again on another set of headlights! Thanks anyway, I guess I’ll just buy some xenons as it’s not just the lens that is damaged

Ah ok, in which case get a full lamp from a breaker/eBay and swap it out. Much easier.

I also want to replace my headlight for my bike. I am thinking about replacing my bike headlight with xenon headlight. But before that, I am gathering information regarding xenon headlight online and then I have found your post. I want to know is xenon headlight is good or not? By the way, if anyone here is searching for the nursing research topics online then you can visit https://studyclerk.com/blog/nursing-research-topics website. I am sure that the website will help you like this website will help me regarding my headlight problems.
