HID Xenon Headlights

I have a 2002 CLK 430. I want to replace my existing headlights and foglights with the new HID Xenon. Do I have to replace the entire assembly or just buy the bulbs and ballasts? Can anyone help.

You have to replace the entire assembly.

If you lived in Germany, you'd additionally be legally required to install headlight washing and headlight self-leveling, but of course in the USA anything goes.

Read this to learn general principles of HID and especially if you're tempted to look at aftermarket "kits:" Daniel Stern Lighting Consultancy and Supply
