Hid Kit For 1st Gen Ls400


Recommended Posts

Im new here! I got a 91 LS400 w/ 330k miles still running like a beast! ;)

Does or has anyone done a hid kit for a 1st gen ls400? If so, do you have a tutorial or some sort that i can follow? and did you have to adjust your bulbs to point down so it doesnt glare towards on coming traffic?

Hey Killer!

The Wheeler Dealer segment is about putting an HID kit on a UK spec gen 1 LS400 which has a COMPLETELY different headlight pattern than a US spec gen 1 LS400. The UK gen 1 LS400 (and the Euro gen 1 LS400) also had highbeam headlights next to the low beams where our gen 1 LS400 had foglights.

The UK/Euro gen 1 headlight low beam has a very sharp cutoff. The US/Canada low beam puts out a big "blob" of light. While an HID "might" work in a UK/Euro gen 1 LS400, an HID kid usually works poorly in a US/Canada spec gen 1 LS400.
