I have xenon installation on my clk, with the standard xenon bulbs ( white 4000K ). I was thinking to get the Blue - 8000K and replace just the bulbs. Can i do it without having troubles ?

I have 3 pairs of 8000K, 1 pair of 6000K and 1 pair of the OEM (assuming 4300K). 8000K works well with headlights that don't have projectors. Otherwise, it's too dim. 6000K turns out to be the best.

I wasted too much money in these bulbs just to see which ones work better [:(]

Will any of those bulbs work for someone who doesn't have HID but just the normal halogyn? If so, are you selling your other bulbs?

These bulbs require ballasts/ignitors. They could be used to retrofit the currently halogen (with ballasts/ignitors purchase) but otherwise would not work by simply swap in.

I feel lazy selling stuff [:p] ... I currently have steering wheels, wheels, shift knob, lights (assemblies), fog lights, signal lights, bumpers, skirts, ... lots of stuff [:D][:D][:D]
