Strange enough that your E500 does not come with Bi-Xenon head lights as a standard option, most MB 500 models are equipped with bi-xenon.

When I purchased my E320, I did a stupid thing.
the sales told me Xenon is not an important issue so I did not order the xenon for a little extra of $1650.
After driven for a week, I feel bad afterward and wanted to get xenon.
it costs $4000 as an add on after you purchase the car.

all I did was purchase a set of PIAA extreme white blub for $120 and replaced the non-xenon blub.

Sure its keeping me happy for spending $4000.

OEM Xenon lamp assembly can be purchased for less than $1K. Bolt them on and you will need to have the dealer program the computer. mbenznl sells and installs them.

Not all E500 have Xenon light package in the US. I know 3 that doesn't.

Hi everyone,

I have E500 and I recently changed an after-market third-party xenon light. $400 for the kit and took me 2-3 hrs, not need to reprogram or so. The bulb type is H7.

Ok you got my attention. Why doesn't your Xenon retrofit require reprogramming of computer? What year is your car?

Alanchan: any Xenon restrofit kit for H7 bulbs should work. try sticking with Hella/Philips for better quality.

sorry for the late reply, I have 2004 E500 4matic. The after-market xenon is Xetronic. Please check the site: http://www.hidexpress.com/index.asp

The light has been working normally after I installed, no need to reprograming.
