HID/xenon conversions

Has anyone here converted their halogens to xenons? Has anyone used any of those conversion kits (phillips, vision, etc.; not mercedes parts) I am curious to know the results and the money invested. Thanks.

Re: HID/xenon conversions

For my 99 CLK 320 I purchased a Xenon headlamp kit for $600 and it was an easy swap. It only took an hour and that is because you have to take the front bumper off to swap the headlamps. All you do is unplug the halogen and plug in the Xenon.<br> <br> dan

I don't care what anyone says, I haven't found any bulb that looks like the true Xenon. All you can hope for is the bright white light, ask any other MB enthusiast they will tell you to spring for the Xenons you won't regret it.<br> <br> dan

Re: HID/xenon conversions

I own a 2000 E430 and I also own a 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP (my l'il project...er projekt). On our national club forum, there is an EXCELLENT thread about HID conversions including a contact to purchase some from a guy in Chicago. He posts as FUNCTION. Read his posts. They are very informative. I believe his email address is there as well.<br> <br> http://www.clubgp.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=6381178&FORUM_ID=1&CAT_ID=1&Top ic_Title=group+buy+for+hid+kits&Forum_Title=ClubGP +%2D+General
