Those look great! Is it totally plug-and-play?
For non Xenon projector lights of the DEPO style purchased for my car.
It is now also plug-and-play for going from halogens to HID's, as Depo now offers that conversion option as well. This is what I did, just this week, to my post-facelift S430 that originally came with halogens (this was a test). The kit is available with optional HID bulbs (H7) pre-installed, and a ballast comes with it. The wiring's all done, along with whatever electronics to prevent the car's computer from flashing the lights and throwing errors. Basically, just swap, hook up, test, and you're done.
These same headlight assemblies work just fine in pre-facelift cars as well, including those with factory HID's. The aforementioned assemblies resided for a little while in the 2000 S500 project car that originally came with HID's, before going back to my S430.
