I have 04 LX also but pulled the instrument cluster from an 07 SC. The fitting are totally different on each, I assume you could make a wiring harness if you have the pin diagrams and some extra time on your hands. I would be interested if anyone has tried this also.

A thread-title search for keywords "headlight" or "HID" in the Do-It-Yourself / Mods section returns several relevant threads, including these:

Also, Alabaster Silver Metallic is a 2006–11 color. Satin Silver Metallic, perhaps? Finally, please add your location (Mesa, Az., yes?) to your profile. It can help others help you.
