    How much did you pay? I'm looking at changing the lights of my 03 Silverado.

    I have been told that doing that is not a good idea unless the projectors were designed for the HIDs... something to do with the cutoff and the heat of the light. I know alot of people who have done it and it worked fine... so I dunno. You should post up some pics though so we can all see how they look!

    I almost want to say that the weather here in Alaska might help with that heat issue. I'm about to do the same thing here, so we'll see.

    I was told today from a dealer that you need the projector headlights that are designed for HID light upgrades or else it could melt the inside of the projector headlights. I have the standard chevy headlights with 8000k Hid on the low beams and wanted the projector/halo headlights for a upgrade but he said it would void the warranty and I would be at my own risk. He said the hid bulbs get hot.

    everything i've read about HID's are that they actually are cooler cause they release the heat more efficiently.
  10. it will not void the warranty. it just different headlights thats all.
