Two Questions:

1) If I put Xenons on my 2000 430S will I have any electrical problems such as blowing fuses and the like from the new power consumption requirements of the lamps?

2) Where is the cheapest place to get them and what else do i need to install them properly?

Thanx in advance...

No but you need to have the computer re-programmed. The lights will not work until you do.

On high beam the Xenons take less power than halogens. Which is why it appears to the computer that the halogens have blown due to low power consumption.

To install them properly I recommend you seek advice from a workshop or someone like Steve @ mbenznl.com to have the cabling and control module fitted correctly.

The control module is optional.

Does anyone know how to "reset" the computer? Thanks.
