Q: What type of headlights do I have?

asked by on

Is it regular halogen or HID...?

My car has 69200 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Your vehicle was available with both halogen headlights or optional HID headlights. The HID headlights bulbs will have a small metal "box" at the rear of the bulb, which is the "igniter" for the bulb. Halogen bulbs will not have this metal box - the wiring attaches directly to the bulb. HID upgrade kits are widely available for this model if that is desired.
