e46 HID retrofit help
Hello Everyone,
my oem xenon been flickering on and off on the passenger side the last few days and now it just stop working. I swap bulb but it still doesnt work so its probably the ignitor or the ballast, which is pretty pricey to replace.

My question is, can i buy a d2s hid kit and install it into the car. I've installed hid kits in cars that were halogens (h3 h7 etc) but never installed a d2s kit, where would i plug the ballast in? I didnt think its possible to retrofit hid kits into a car that came with xenon lol but was told its been done.

thanks for the input, oem kits are so much cheaper than an oem ballast or ignitor.

yeah man you can do exactly that. i can sell you a d2s ballast with universal connectors on one end. the key is to piggyback the ballast off the headlight leads that go to the OEM ballast. Saves 100$'s over oem.

you'll need to poke around a bit with the ballast to get the right wires.

shameless plug:
