That depends on if your car is a Sedan or Coupe. There are very few choices for the Coupe, and it IS different from the Sedan. The Sedan has many choices from the OEM parts in the aftermarket. If you live in North America, make sure the lights meet DOT FMVSS 108 or CFMVSS108(Canada) specs. to stay legal. If you live anywhere else make sure the lights meet ECI rules.
Most lights sold on eBay DO NOT comply with any of these regulations and some sellers will say that they meet some ISO 900x spec to make you think they are legal for on-road use. The ISO specs refer to quality control issues and do not in any way mean the lights are legal or even come close to OEM quality.
Going the OEM way is very expensive but the best and most legal route. I upgraded to new OEM factory Bi-Xenons when my car was new for a total cost including the install of around 1.7k. The lights were expensive, and the front bumper cover had to be removed to do the install correctly.
The lights that were replaced were the newer style clear lens lights found on the face lifted W203 models built starting with the 2005 models. They are plug and play with the older W203 models with the fluted headlight lenses. I would offer to sell these lights but I don't remember exactly where I put them four years ago.

Law-makers are supposed to regulate in the interest of the public as opposed to regulating in the interest of the regulated party.
If it says Pratt and Whitney on the outside it better say Martin Baker on the inside.
