how do you do that?
do you actually need to replace the entire head light assembly with after market HID kit first?
then ask your local MB dealer to program the computer for Xeon present.

You cannot just swap the bulbs. There are kits which include the bulbs, bulb holders, ballasts and igniters, and wiring. Thes cost a few hundred dollars and are illegal to sell and instal. But, many people are using them.


A better way is to buy the factory bi-xenons and install those.

No U cannot replace with HID lamps but if U wanna take the poor man's route then just swap out the bulbs for blue lamps. Downside is that they only last 3 months. 2 if U R running DRL's. the choice is yours.
