i'm about to pick up the xenon conversion kit from this place which is around the corner from me, cost is $650 US,( http://www.xenonfactory.com/products/hid/polarion.htm ) before i buy anyone know anywhere else cheaper? Its 550 US for the kit and bulbs and $100 for the resistors so it doesnt trick the sensors. I'm gonna get 6000k bulbs with them. Last thing is i'm installing the lorinser dtm kit and want to upgrade those fog lights to xenons, anyone know how thats done? I know they are different than the factory fog lights, they are circle as opposed to square. Thanks.

By the way i was told from Steve he wont be able to get the xenon kit for awhile so thats why i couldnt pick it up from there, and mercedes its almost double in cost.

I would just wait for Steve to get more. $650 is stupidly expensive for a retrofit kit. I got my OEM Euro Xenon's (complete assemblies) for $750.

And FYI, you don't need resistors to retrofit Xenon's on a 208. Before I got the OEM ones I had a retrofit kit installed and I never had any malfunction warning.

apparently its not a retrofit kit, its more of a wiring kit job, he's not providing some sort of conversion harness, he said it will trick off the sensors without the resistors and i asked steve and they dont think they will be getting them at all so not sure ... might have to spend to big bucks.

Any kit where you're installing HID bulbs and ballasts into Halogen assemblies that didn't come with them is a retrofit kit.

That being said, you shouldn't pay more than $350-$400 for a retrofit kit, including EVERYTHING.

the guy said he'll do it for $450 for everything but only 30 day warranty instead of 3 years for full price, find any problems with xenons?
