I am looking at getting an HID kit too. I read that if you run it from the battery it will work fine?

You may want to make sure it's legal to install HID on your Lacrosse. As far as I'm aware, it's illegal in the US to install HID on a car with halogen fixtures, even if you retrofit the car with proper HID fixtures. The DOT only recognizes OEM HID lights that were installed at the time of manufacture.

This is because HID projects light in a different manner to traditional halogen lights, and will cause glare if you use them in halogen fixtures.

Unless you can install projector beam headlights on your Lacrosse, you may have a cop or two pulling you over for offenses ranging from too much glare to improper headlight color.

I installed HID's in my '96 Roadmaster over two years ago. They are on all the time as I only have the one headlight bulb, and being Canadian, have DRL's. As long as you buy a realistic colour temperature (ie. 4300k-5000k), the colour is so close to halogen lights that you will never get pulled over for it and they are so bright I can see into the future with them...
