OK I was going to order some led tail lights, DO any of u have these? and how did u overcome the error code? ANd are the projector headlights like the HID headlights? Will they blind oncoming traffic because of the glare?
The LED tail lights come with resistors attached. You will not get a light malfunction error. Projector lights are not hid lights. HID means High Intensity Discharge witch consist of a Xenon bulb and a ballast to ignite the bulb. If your car came with factory Xenon lights then you have HID lighting. If not then you can purchase a conversion kit. If you are buying Projector lights get the Depo ones. For better light change the projector inside the Depo lights to E55, RS6, or TL. Then if you want a little more change the lenses in the new projectors to the new ZKW lenses, it will be even better.
Re: the headlights, if you're NOT going to replace the reflectors, then just get the 65W bulbs from daniel stern lighting and have done with it. The inexpensive projectors will look cool, but they'll leave you with far less useful light on the road.
A couple years back when the higher quality LED taillights were first coming out for the W210 people were calling them "wave" style. Before that most of the aftermarket taillights had a flat plastic lens instead of the "wavy" lens like the stock MB taillights.
Take the advice posted earlier in this thread. Read what Daniel Stern Lighting has to say about HID lighting and you will not want to ever consider them. Unless your MB had them factory installed (only in the last few years), don't get the ones sold on eBay or anywhere else, nothing but problems to come not far down the road. The previous owner of my car bought the ones on eBay which are factory installed (complete headlight assemblies) in China, and replaced the OEM headlight assembly with them. The only way to get rid of them is to get new L & R set - $$$.$$.
