Cayenne 957 Halogen to HID conversion?

Recommended Posts

Hey, new to the forum and somewhat new to the Porsche life. Got my cayenne about 6 months ago and about a month in one of my headlights went out. I’m currently building an overlander with nice beefy tires and steel front bumper and whatnot. So naturally instead of replacing a single bulb I decided to buy custom built headlights to match the build. Just got the headlights in yesterday and realized that Porsche created two different models of headlights. Halogen and Xenon. And now I have $1500 headlights that don’t work on my car. 

I just ordered two ballasts off Amazon and should be here in a few days. I’ve heard about the need to code to be able to run xenon headlights on an originally halogen car, and was wondering if anyone here has done this successfully. Also is there any wiring that needs to be done? Not sure if anyone has the pin outs for the two different headlights but I’m assuming there’s going to need to be work done there as well. I’m already too deep to forget this endeavor and the custom headlights look so good I’m not stopping now. 

Any help is appreciated!
