I purchased projector headlamps from ebay and when I went to put in my new bulbs (PIAA Extreme White+ H7's for High and Main, H3 for Fog, and Philips Bluevision H6W for running lights) I found H7's in the highs, H3's in the mains, 5W's in the running lights. Are all projector lights like this or am I getting the shaft from a ebay seller? Can mains be strong enough with H3's. All info is appreciated!!!

Does anyone know if its even worth going through the trouble of installing these projectors or are they just a waste of time & money?

DEPO only made 2 types of Projector Lamps for the W210. HID type and the H7 type. I know for sure that the H7 ones wont fit in the HID type, i dont know if the H3s will fit in the HID type...I strongly advise you to contact your seller and swap the lamps out.

Thanks, I sent the seller a email regarding the situation, still waiting for a reply. When I ordered the lights I didn't know which bulbs were supposed to be for the highs,mains, etc. The auction listed the H7's for highs & H3's for lows. It also stated that there would be no returns, so I really don't know where I stand. I'll post the sellers response as soon as I receive it. Anyone know if I could use these lights, just in case I get stuck with them?

Spoke w/the vendor today. He said that they have sold a large amount of these projectors w/o any complaints. He said to try these lights and if I don't feel comfortable with them that he would accept a return for a refund within 30 days. I was wondering if the H3 bulbs would actually produce a brighter beam through the projectors. But I think that I'm going to just return them and order a new pair from a different vendor. I'll just make sure to confirm all of the wiring w/them first. Any and all comments are wanted and welcome. Thanks!!

The ebay vendor is symmic. They have a good feedback rating and have been pretty helpful with the situation. I didn't see the Depo namebrand on the projectors. I actually just finished repacking the units and will hopefully send them out tomorrow. I just need to see how the vendor wants them shipped since it is their responsibility to pay for shipping.
