Hi there again,
on this site: http://www.mbenznl.com I found very interesting things... like the complete packages to update the appearance of W203 C-class sedan to resemble the appearance of 2005 C-class. New headlamp modules with clear transparent lenses are more beautiful than my original headlamp with "striped opaque" lenses...

Are these bixenon? Did you install some stuff like this? I would be glad to know other sites like this... better if in Europe.
Byeeee, here's a pic.

So they are not bi-xenon like headlamps on E-Class...
I want bi-xenon headlamps :( :(

Can I ask you some questions?

1) Where are u from? I ask this because mbeznl writes: "The following car models support this update package:
2001-2004 US-spec C240 sedan
2001-2004 US-spec C320 sedan
2002-2004 US-spec C230K sedan
2002-2004 US-spec C32 AMG sedan "

My C-class is C220 CDI European, not US... can I install this kit?

2)You said its worth the price. How much does it cost?

3) Can I install it by myself? Is it difficult?

Byeeee

Thank you very much!!!

The parts are European specification. So they will be more than ok. I think if you are going to install COMAND, appearance kit and so many other things then I think you should ask Steve to come to Italy and help you.

I think he is getting ready to leave the USA and come back to Europe soon.

As far as I know the Northern Europeans are allowed to travel overseas.
I don't speak a good english, so I understood that he was from America...... Sorry.

what was the cost of the appearance update package? im guessing around a grand?
It is car specific. So I cant say one persons cost is the same as the next. I for one decided that in the sedan I couldnt tell the difference between the old and the new tail lights from 1 metre away. So there was no point in swapping those.

"I know its different" doesnt do anything for me.
