Default Aftermarket HID Halo Headlights for GS430

Hey guys, ever since I've gotten my gs the main things I've wanted to do have been concerning the head lights and tail lights. I've got the tail lights figured out, but I realize the headlights are a bit trickier.

For starters, I know the stock HID harness has to come out. But I'm a little confused on where to go from there. Will I set off any warning lights or create a CEL if put in a new HID kit? How would I wire up the Halos?

Has anyone attempted this? What where your experiences like? Or did you just take it to a shop and have them do it?

They don't make aftermarket halo headlights for the GS430 that are compatible with the factory auto-leveling. Your best bet would to just do a retrofit and fit halos to them, or just fit halos to your stock lights.

its not easy but it can be done, after watching a couple of youtube videos i decided to try it.
i bought some non- hid halo projector lights, took it apart all i had to do was remove a chrome pice that would not let my hid bulb go through. i used my oem hid, did not have to take it out or change anything

I would really like to know more. Which lights did you buy? And could you show me the general area where the chrome piece is and what you had to take apart? Would be very much appreciated!

I had a Halo setup in 2007 I believe. The halos I just wired them to the city lights. Easy as that no codes or warning lights. I just got tired of the halos and inverters going bad. Maybe the quality of the parts of have change by now.
