  3. SL500 1997 engine swap to M120?

    R129 SL-Class
    Funny reading all this none sense... You guys missed a very important thing... that M120 won't fit in the car because all V12 R129 models have a longer front end remember?

    R129 SL-Class
    Yes OEM xenon lights are ridiculously expensive. I purchased a pair from the UAE but they turned out to be RHD. If you thinking of getting them, look out for this issue as they are not adjustable.
