Are calais/ berlina lights HID?

can they just plug in and work. I know I'll need to modify the front bumper. but electrically is it a plug and play scenario?

No calais/berlina lights are not HID. They have the projector lens however which, from my understanding, will make the HID conversion slightly more legal (not saying the conversion is legal). HID lights come with all sorts of fancy things to make sure that people won't get blinded like auto washers and perfect cut-offs, etc.

The swapping of exec lights to calais/berlina should just be a plug and play situation though providing the front bar is changed.

Keeping in mind that the exec HL have the teardrop parking lights (circular light in the middle of housing) & the Berlina/Calais HL dont have the parking light at this location.
