    Re: Do you have bi xenon on your 987 ?

    They are supposed to self-level after a change in weight load in the car, when you turn the car/lights off and turn them on again. I noticed if it's the same load and you turn off/on, they will not level, they remain at the same position. Change the weight load however, and the lights re-level.

    I just had tehm installed on my car - cost me $700 to put the xenon bulbs and extra power unit to power them - well worth the money and cheaper aftermarket than if you had put them on - plus i never use that light washing systems anyways - i would hit it by accident sometimes and be ticked off after it sprays mist all over the hood



    No self-leveling with that sort of thing though, and are these lights you've installed actually legal? I didn't know that someone had come out with a D.O.T.-legal HID kit for the 987.

    I think he means the unit. The dealer can easily take out the halogen lights and replace them with a xenon unit. You can order the part - I know this because in my collision a xenon light was cracked and needed to be replaced. It costs $1,500. I believe in Clayton's case they were willing to do this swap (at $700 opposed to factory option MSRP of $990) so that he wouldn't have to wait for the car to be built.

    Oh. Okay, well that's not "aftermarket".

    lol, Let's just call it "post-OEM"
