You shouldn't have much problems with headlights being stolen from a 04-06 Maxima. The 04-06 model years isn't as popular as the 00-03 model years and a majority of the 04-06 models come with HIDs.
Remember also, the headlights from a 04-06 and 00-03 are not interchangable (but they still could retrofit the projectors; requires more work, etc).

The only model of the 2004-2006 Maxima that
has HID's is the SE's with the "driver
preferred package" and The SL's.
That being said, I have not heard anything
about the '04-'06's having problems with
stolen HID's. I have read several pages back
in this forum of Infiniti's and Lexus RX's
having their headlights stolen.
I still can't get over the fact that this
problem is pretty much a regional thing,
i.e., the northeast/NJ/NY area and some
areas of South Florida(Miami) and possibly
the Texas cities. I live in the Tampa Bay
Area and there's been no such reports of
HID theft particular to 2002-2003 Maximas.
I drive a 2002 Maxima. Right now, I'd
better knock on wood since I have less than
a year left on my lease.

Maybe thieves just could'nt tell which one got HID's and which does not. They tried to take the one's out of my pacifica but end up just damaging my hood, bumper and headlights.

Check Post #189 and #199, both posts are
from "blkhemi". I believe this was in the
Austin, TX area. Hopefully, you and I can
rest easily in our towns on this issue.

The Maxima 2002 fix is get the nose,brackets,grill,foglights,head lights,wire harnesses from the 2001 and put it on your 2002.The 2001 headlights from the AE version look the best(also get the clips)Nobody bothers with the 2001!Costed me like $2K the first time now nobody cares about my car.

Well, as of 7/24/06 at approximately 6:15 p.m.,
my 2002 Maxima appears to have been totaled
due to a young college kid running right
through a stop sign. I'm still stunned as I
write this. I haven't been able to sleep
because I keep running through my head how
the accident happened and if I could have done
something more to prevent it. Both airbags
deployed, the front end looks pretty bad and
the windshield is all cracked. I'm not sure
how I ended up with four bleeding fingers on
the right hand and the left hand is swollen
in the knuckle area and I have a small
egg-sized welt on the forearm near the elbow.
I'm pretty sore all over with some contusions
on my stomach and my left upper thigh, but
other than that, I'm fine. Sick about the
Max though. I guess I won't be worrying about
the possibility of my xenon's getting stolen

lol..sorry to laugh at your misfortunes, but if u all would've just brought it to the dealers and asked them for the renforcement brackets, they would give them to you, but if u dont ask they wont put it in, cuz how do u think they're making money, people who get their lights stolen, go back to the dealer and replace them, but when the replace your hood and lights, the dont give u a reenforcment bracket, so your lights can get stolen again, and u can again, bring it back to them and have them fix it. and for those people that think they're ok with the 04-06 model....better not be to sure of that..the only reason thieves havent gotten to the 04-06 models, is because the computer box that runs those HID's arent placed with the head lights them self, like the 01-03 models, that's why 01-03 are so easy to steal, if i were u all, i would just trade in my car. lol. honestly, because replacing those lights everytime they get stolen, is aaaalot of money. about 3 grand the most, replace the head lights, and the hood. heads lights are about 400 - 500 brand new, and hood is about another 3 to 400, plus the labor...but hey, thats what u have insurence for.........take my advice, go get yourself a new car, all the new lexus and bmw's, have reenforced headlights, and the computer is rewired to sit far away from the head light where they cant get to it...just put it this way, if u have a car 03 and under, with HID's (Xenon headlights), ur in for a big suprise when u wake up..nissan, acuras, honda, domestice or imported. doesnt matter if there's a will there's a way. and these street racing kids now days will steal anything to make their car's look nice......

lol, word to the wise, take my advice, they know which ones to take. and ur chrystler looks like a lexus, so those dumb kids probably didnt even know what they were doing. i work for an autobody garadge, and let me tell you the only cars that i havent seen come in with stolen HID's are mercadese benz, that's because their computer is mounted to the fire wall. but i've seen saab's, hondas, nissans, navigators, etc, had to fix them all, and its not cheap either. hears and idea, make your own reenforcment brackets, with aluminum metal and a couple of bolts, and some caulking, all these things u can find at home depot.
