    Is it possible to install HID lights on the XLT?

    Yes. There are extensive threads on this in both this forum and the modified 2011 forum. Under the modified they have it broken down into what kits were used and each persons impressions.

    Use the search function to find the threads, it's easy to use and in all should take less time than it took to make this post.

    I haven't tried them yet because it takes a bit more modification than I care for so I don't have any personal experience with them.

    I have just about every option on my Limited. This is the only option I don't have that I wish I did.

    I was really surprised to read that Bill. On the Canadian 2011 Limited model, HID headlamps are standard equipment.

    302A package has the HIDs. They are decent, but my old car had better low beams. The hi beams are insane, though.

    In Canada, the 340A (Spec 302A) is the only package choice available for the Limited. That is why all our Limiteds come with HID. In my previous '09 Highlander I used the Philips X-treme Power Bulbs and they perfomed as well as the HIDs I have now, in my opinion.

    Correct, I did not get the additional 302 package (maybe another +$2,000) on my Limited. I did not want self parking (that's crazy, I can do that myself!) and the Adaptive Cruise Control (would have been nice but not really necessary) and the HIDS (like I said, I'd like to have this part). It was all bundled together.

    The adaptive cruise control is absolutely awesome. It works flawlessly and really inpressed me.
