Post Xenon-HID Headlights conversion for '05 E320...?

I have a 2005 E320 CDI. I would like to upgrade the headlights to HID Xenon. I found a kit on E-Bay made by MTEC that claims that this works with W211's, and will not cause any computer error messages and alleges that installation for a beginner should only take up to an hour.

Has anyone purchased and installed (or had a mechanic install) the MTEC HID conversion on a 2003+ E320? If so, what was or is your experience?

Is it true that you loose the high beam/low beam feature with a HID conversion? Will the day-time running light feature still operate properly? Are there any other HID conversion kits out there for this Mercedes?

I did read some threads posted last fall on BenzWorld, but I wanted to see if there were any updates or more recent information.

Any advice or information would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Stephen
