Default HIDs Possible?

I just managed to break a headlight bulb in my new Club Car Villager LSV.

Is it possible to install a HID kit or would it draw too much power?

Thoughts?

I searched for HID and there were no results. I think it would look really nice. I'm surprised that no one else does it on a regular basis...

I'm in the process of rebuilding my CC and have considered replacing the regular bulbs with HID, but using them in the factory housing will create glare and since the reflectors aren't designed for HID, the light pattern may not be adequate.

You can get HID driving lights and use them to augment the regular lights. That's what I decided to do.

I purchased HID system to replace bulbs in factory CC precedent headlight housing. The initial draw is 20amps when turned on and runs on 3.6amps each ongoing. You get to choose the temp of bulbs you want (pretty sweet) and includes bulbs, ballasts and wiring.

The bulbs fit into the factory housing (with minor modification). I dont have them wired up yet, as I am focused on other parts of my cart right now, but the kit is pretty nice IMO.

That's so strange because when I search "HID" I don't get anything, but I did find the HID post in there. Thanks so much!
