2010 Porsche Boxster S Halogen Headlight Upgrade?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at purchasing a 2010 Boxster S, but every car I look at that has the options I want does not have Bi-Xenon Headlights. I have seen HID upgrade kits for '08 and prior years, but haven't found one for a 2010. Has anyone done this upgrade, and is it good enough? Where should I look for the best upgrade kit? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

This is a litte bit of a "hot button" issue; a lot of people have done cheapo aftermarket HID kits and love them, but a lot of these "upgrades" go badly. We get a fair number of them in with multiple MIL waring lights on. Here is a recent example from another board:


We have seen just about everything go wrong with these kits, MIL's, noise in the stereo, electronics issues, burnt wiring harnesses, etc, etc. I can't tell you how many of them we have removed because of problems. People considering aftermarket HID kits need to know that along with being cheap, they are problematic, failure prone, and in many states are totally illegal (ticket bait due to excessive glare, some states now even require towing the car if you get caught) and will also not pass several state inspections………..but they are cheap……….

I've driven Porsches with both the after market and OEM HID's, and there is absolutely no comparison, the OEM's are that much better (due to the focusing unit) that they are worth the money……..
