Anybody know off hand what size headlight bulbs are used for a 2003 E500?
Actually for all the white bulbs in the front end of the car....
I want to install those super bright white type of bulbs as I don't like the yellowish look my current bulbs give off, and I don't want to upgrade to HID as I think it would cost too much and would be a pain to install (unless someone can prove me wrong). Thanks in advance!

Your owner's manual will tell you which size bulbs fit. As you will find via search in the 210 forum much discussion about headlights. I replaced my stock bulbs with sylvania silverstar's. They were about $40 for the pair; the brighter/whiter light gives about 30% more distance & some additional width. My foglights are almost unnecessary now. I only replaced the low beams as I have adequate light with the highs on.

You first, however, need to know if your car has halogen or HID lamps. Both were available, and both use different systems (and bulbs!) to light the road. ;)

Once you know that, we can make suggestions and recommendations, but that's the first step.
