Exactly, they are not true HID's. No ballasts, etc. They have the projector, but uses a halogen bulb.Islander said:I've got the HID look upgraded lights on my SLT-1. They are actually "Projector" halogen beams and not the HID's. They are a real step up from regular headlamps and I find the low beams more than adequate. You can buy upgarded lamps in aftermarket shops from my experience.
