Welcome! What are you trying to do with the HID? All Cadenzas come with HID bulbs if I'm not mistaken.. I myself have updated the bulbs for a more pure white look and love them. Check out OSRAM D1S Cool Blue Intense bulbs (5500K), some vendors on these forums have them.Satin Metallic ... black interior ... BEST CAR I HAVE EVER OWNED AND ENJOYED!!
Never thought that I would own a KIA until I saw one for the first time in May '13. I've gotten SO MANY compliments on this car, it's just amazing!!
Nothing I don't like about this car!! ... uh ... except for:
1. Weird feel in break petal sometimes when driving in wet weather, usually accompanied by a mild growling sound when breaks are applied ... been told by KIA dealership tech that this is ABS system noise ... but I'm not convinced .. water between the rotor and the break pads??
2. A bit slow out of the gate in low gear when petal is to the floor ... thought this would be better with the six-speed transmission.
3. Tried to update headlights to HID, but the HID bulb assembly has no way to anchor itself to the headlight fixture considering that the stock bulb plugs into a socket which itself is the anchor to the headlight assembly. Was told that I would have to modify the socket for the HID bulb .. but when I check with the KIA dealership, I couldn't just buy the bulb socket. The bulb socket is part of the entire wiring harness (~$800)... you can't buy the socket separately. Has anyone come across anything that would get me past this problem??
In spite of items I have mentioned above, I would buy another Cadenza in a HEARTBEAT!!
