Xenon Bulbs (Lamps) 8000k for ML ?


one side of my headlights stopped to work and at garage they said it is ballast fault. After some searching I have found this ballast:

Hella 5DV 008 290-00 D2S D2R Ballast | HID Ballasts & Starters | HID Xenon | Xenon Bulbs | Hid Headlight Kits | Xenon Lamp | Xenon Bulb

will it fit to my car? Anybode done that before?

Also I will upgrade my 4300k xenon bulbs to 8000k xenon bulbs, is this color good for night driving ?

D2S Xenon HID Replacement Bulbs 4300K 6000K 8000K 10000K | D2S D2R Bulbs | HID Xenon Bulbs | HID Xenon | Xenon Bulbs | Hid Headlight Kits | Xenon Lamp | Xenon Bulb

I don't know if it's the right ballast or not. Before you start switching parts, though, I'd recommend swapping the bulbs from side to side to see if the ballast is the problem.

I'd advise against anything above 6000K for night driving. 4300K is the brightest (~3200 lumens), and the light output drops as the color temperature goes up.
