I think that after doing some research, you'll find that PP's price is actually quite low. Your MB dealer will sell the EACH headlamp for what PP wants for the pair! PP's price is roughly what you'll pay for the Bi-Xenon headlamp option, should you be ordering a new ML [:)]

Thanks Drew... I sold my left arm to Supersprint so I guess I might as well sell my right arm to PP's for the Bi-X's... [:D]

Well, not necessarily heh. One way to do it is to have them shipped to Point Roberts or something, or to a friend's place in Seattle. Install them there so you won't have to pay any taxes or duties!

LOL, I'm sure it can't be that bad. Whereabouts again are you located in BC?

Just ensure that you have your dealership align them properly as that makes a tremendous difference in helping you to get used to the sharp cutoff.

I'm in Kamloops Drew... and the dealership here is VERY friendly but they suck technical knowledge and ALWAYS want to charge you for minor stuff... so we'll see...

Yes, absolutely you do need to bump up the fuse (to a 20A, I think?) because you have a pre-'99. Regarding the bulbs, no need to. You have the highest luminal output setup right as it is; allow about 55 hrs for the bulbs to burn in to attain the nice and white colour [:)]

Thanks Drew... I thought I had to but wasn't sure of the amperage... is there someone around our neck of the woods that sells the LED front and rear amber turn signals??... that's all I need to complete my lighting mods. And if I read correctly in other posts I only need load equalizers in the front and not the rear correct? I also got some rear braking LED's from Jerry and he said I didn't need any LE's for the back... let me know if Lordco or someone here sells a good set... cheers mate

Yes that is correct, you will only need the load equalisers for the fronts. Did you get the red LEDs for the brake and taillamps too?

Yes there are LED bulbs available locally, but none that are good unfortunately.
