EST Projectors w HID installed in MY 2005 XC70

The title says it all-- Has anyone installed the EST projectors w HID kit in an 05 XC70?

If yes, please post install or direct me to an install thread. Specific areas of interest are:
1. The wiring within the EST Headlight,
2. Wiring the HID plug and Ballast,
3. High Beam bulb choice,
4. How the EST cable is connected to the OEM headlighgt harness and
5. How all of that is connected to the XC70.

Any other installl help will be appreciated.

TIA :)

01-04 plugs the same
05+ are different plugs

I am kinda curious to see the plug mount on the back of the headlight ...
didnt you use to drop 05+ headlights in your XC70s and your old Silver V70?
Yes but you had to cut up the harness for the 05 Headlights to work .

It looks like the EST headlights have a custom harness to do that now.

Ozzie -
Did you try stock bulbs and to see if those work ?
I am thinking its more of a power issue , that the car doesnt see the correct power draw and then doesnt supply power to the headlights .

The newer S40 have the same issue , talk to TheShadow about this .
yeah I had the same issue after awhile it went away.
