      I have a 2007 and one of the Headlights went out... I went to get a new one and autozone asked if they were HID or Halogen... I dont have the car with me but I think they are halogen... I didnt know that HID was an option???

      Does anyone know whether a 2007 could have HID? because I dont really wanna spend an extra $100 for a light bulb.

      Yes, Xenon headlights were an option.

      I believe only on cars with 3.2L engines with the Technology package.

      Boston is correct on this. The normal bulb is an H7 and is fairly easy to change. Just be careful not to touch the glass on the new bulb with your fingers.

      Yeah, I didn't see it on their website anymore. I'm sure they can get it as a special order but the price would probably be in the $2-3k range. The only one I found on their site was for the Q5 and that was $2,295.

      I decided I am just going to put HID's in the Halogen projectors. I just really liked the way the xenons looked. Thanks guys.

      IIRC, the standard enclosures cannot handle the heat generated by HID bulbs. Car fires are no fun.
