SVT HID Headlights in ZX3...

Hey guys,

My stock headlights in my '00 ZX3 are pretty scuffed and just all around not very pretty at all. I want to swap them out with some HIDs out of an SVT.

Will SVT headlights, as far as the headlights themselves just bolt into the same place as the stock ones?

If so, what do I have to do from there as far as wiring?

Here you go...

All you need to know is right there! I did it, and it was easy as pie... and I have no electrical experience at all! All the bolts match right up, the only difference is of course the wiring, but that is all explained in the link I listed for you above.

Hope that helps!

Check with Focussalvage.com and see if he has a set, he has had them in the past.

Yeah, I got mine from FocusSalvage... they were well packed and came in great condition. Be careful though, HIDs don't travel well, and a friend of mine had an issue with his in shipping, and it is all a big mess. Be prepared to spend at least $600 on a good pair too... or $800 on a new set.

Keep searching E-bay too. Go all the way to the last page.... you just never know when you might see them....

searching using "Focus HID"...works for me, and it should for you.
