saw these several months ago, and the thing that struck me is that the pic with
the angel eyes....doesnt appear in the headlight photo directly above it, causing
me to wonder if it's on there at all. if so, where? inherent with most angel eyes
which uses cold light or plastic reflectance or fiber optic techniques, it is usually
a pretty good size. but in the headlight assembly photo, i'm just not seeing it.

also, be aware that a number of the aftermarket headlights for w210 will use
smaller bulb size ie not H7. this allows them to go with slimmer reflector and/or
smaller projector. in nearly all cases, their R&D does a poor job of producing a
light system which comes anywhere near OEM in terms of brightness or smooth-
ness in beam pattern/output in front of the car. the ad isn't clarifying which
bulb(s) is used for low/high.

Thanks for the feedback so far, and thanks for the warm welcome! I think these lights are creating more question than answers! Can anyone suggest (besides OM) lights for my car?

i think if you use the SEARCH function, you'll find other threads on headlight mods
and upgrades. pay particular attention to posts by ZAM2000. also, search for
word DEPO....which, though not what you'd call quality item, is better aftermarket
than others out there. i believe all aftermarket are Asian manuf. bottom line is
what quality you're looking for....as well as how much you're willing to spend. i
may have a used pre-face lift available in a month or so, but nothing for your facelift.

That looks strange without the fan up front. I assume that you have an electric fan behind the radiator.

Is there supposed to be a plastic guard in front of the condensor?

Yeah, I'm actually going to leave in about 20minutes to have some guy look at the car. I hope to get it done this week. So far from the information I've got in the forums, people are suggesting Bilstiens struts and H&R springs.. What do think?

you mean Bilstein Sport shocks & H&R Sport Spring - are good combo for W210 so far.
