Headlight Replacement Halogen to Litronic

What parts would I need to make the switch from halogens to Litronics? Is it pretty much a plug n play switch over? Thanks guys.

Plug and play. I did this with my 2000 S, and it took a few minutes.

Headlight Replacement

Thanks for the quick reply. Is it necessary to remove the front bumper to replace the headlights?

It is not, download the owner's manual if you don't have a hard copy or look at the pelican parts article, very easy to do.

Headlight replacement

Thanks guys. Now I have another question not related to headlights, I just started the car up and got a white cloud of smoke upon starting? What could be the problem? I just had my local Porsche dealer perform an oil change at 37k, had my inspection performed and passed w/o any issues. Why would it smoke like that?

Thanks
