I need help with 2005 c230 Kompressor

I need some help in a couple of areas. I drive a 2005 c230 kompressor 4-door. First i bought the car with all the packages except for the lighting package which offered xenon lights and headlight wipers. Now i want to get xenon lights, do i just change the bulb? And i can't figure out how the hell to turn on my fog lights...ive read the manual plenty of times but i can't figure it out. Thank you guys very much..

RE: I need help with 2005 c230 Kompressor

For a Xenon conversion you'll need at least:

New Headlights
Ballast
Xenon Bulbs
Reprograming of your software (takes 5 minutes to do at the dealer).

Alternativly (and cheaper) you could go for a HID package, in which case you only need to remove your old bulbs and attach the wires from the bulbs to the ballast and then to the HID Bulbs (its all plug and play and is in one package - try philips)

As for your foglights, pull the round light switch one click for your front fogs and 2 clicks for your rear foglight. Make sure your light switch is already turned till the dim-lights are on.

Hope this helped

So i got an HID conversion kit (6000k) for our 05 C230 sport, but for some reason, How do you install this? I've replaced HID bulbs on my infiniti w/no hassle, but this kit has some extra wiring which needs to be plugged into the stock harness that (used to) plug into the stock bulb. Which wire on that harnes is positive and which is negative?

Brown is neg.

see if you can swap bulbs for 4300 or 5k. 6k is normally too blue to be any good in inclement weather.
