Here is the man! Learn from his experience.I have tried mutliple setups on our 2015 Touring and here are my thoughts/opinions.
I tried a plug plug and play H11 HID kit in the stock halogen projectors. The output was ok, not great. What I didn’t like was there was too much light bleeding above the cutoff. The stock halogen projectors didn’t manage the HID light as good as I hoped.
I then tried a plug plug and play H11 LED kit. Same story more or less but output was slightly LESS than stock. Pulled those right out.
I now have a full Bi-LED projector retrofit along with LED fog lights. See his thread for details. Output=spectacular!
Thanks for the photo. It basically said what you need to know.If you're willing to spend a couple of hundred dollars, do a retrofit either HID or LED. You won't regret it.
I also was using Plug n Play HID kit in the stock halogen projectors but wasn't really happy with the performance. Decided to do a HID retrofit and I don't regret it at all. Here are some pictures of mine. https://imgur.com/a/hD48l
I don't think the OEM HID headlights will work in a non Elite edition. Unless I'm wrong I think you might have to redo the stock wiring to power up the ballast etc...Another option that would be much easier than a full retrofit would be to purchase a pair of used OEM HID headlights from a Elite. You’ll still spend a decent amount to get a mint pair that doesn’t have broken tabs, but it’s pretty easy to swap the headlights. I think the HID equipped vans have autoleveling feature which obviously wouldn’t function, but besides that they should be good to go. Just another option to think about.
