1st forum ever and 1st MB car brought in Sept 2015 with useless warranty from Mb indy in leicester. I also have issue's with injectors on this 101k E320cdi 2006 facelift avntgarde estate brought for £7500.
1/Since purchase ,the lights were very poor so issue raised with supplying garage...
Facelift (56 plate onwards) E320CDI. Ideally Black or grey saloon with:
Real Leather Seats,
Memory Package at least for the driver,
Through Loading, and
Parktronics at least for the rear.
London - Cambridge corridor.
So the £5 deflectors you can grab on Amazon .. is there any special consideration with bi-xenons (eg. cause problems with self-levelling, etc.)? Or do they do the job just fine?
What do you normally do when crossing the channel for a couple of weeks?
:mad: I have factory fitted xenon's but am disappointed with their poor output. The MB dealer has installed new bulbs and had them aligned on a beam tester but they are still dimmer than standard halogen headlights.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
I have bi-xenon's on my car and was thinking of putting slight tint film on...good idea? I'm concerned that potential heat damage may occur and melt plastic? I understand people will have views on this.. i.e bit chavvy etc... but at the moment just testing the water... seen it on one E class and...
Hi there, my factory-fit Bi-Xenon headlights have BOTH stopped auto-levelling at startup and are aiming too high, making me really popular with oncoming traffic :o They also appear to flicker (not on and off) but more as if they're bouncing at the top limit.
I did have some recent work done on...
Right my Xenon light on my driver’s side has been playing up for a while now, it seems to have an intermittent fault where the light occasionally doesn’t come on. I usually pop the hood up and give it a push and twist and hey presto it works. Now it doesn’t work at all?
So if any of you lot have...
If possible I would like to retro fit the Bi-Xenon lights to my CLK. I understand its not just the lights but also the sensors on the front and rear axles (I guess to detect ride height). Is this feasible at a reasonable cost or should I just stick with the standard lights?
Hi all, I'm a newbie to the Forum but have been Merc driver for the past four years. Just changed my ML for a C350 CDI sports estate and love it. My only concern is that my Bi-Xenons seem too high - at least I seem to be getting flashed a lot, and my feeling is that the beam is a bit high. Has...
Anyone else worked out what the score is with taking a car with Bi-Xenons to France as regards the spare bulb rules? Seems a bit excessive to carry all the kit when the bulbs are supposed to last forever.....................
been looking at various cars at dealers recently, and today overheard a convo that some peeps next to us were complaining about one of their SL bi-xenons not working.. they were arguing about the cost..
what is the life expectancy of xenon bulbs.. and whats the replacement cost.. only from...
Sorry if this has been done before
What is the difference between Xenon's and Bi-Xenons?
Want to put a pair in my W203 Pre facelift but not too sure which ones to go for and would it cause the computer to go haywire?
Just back from a busy day with Ollie (that's BlackC55, please could a mod edit the title, ty), fitting my new OEM Bi-xenons, plus auto-levelling. :D
Fitting the loom for the sensors required the usual swathes of trim be removed plus out with the front SAM, battery and wipers. :crazy...
has anyone in the uk did a frosted headlight change to projector headlight for the use with HID's for the c class w203
if so can anyone tell me where in the uk supplies them and how much
the dealer wants along the lines of £500-600 EACH:eek:
I recently bought some Bi-Xenons for my W203 Coupe, only to find I had got sedan headlights, not the required Coupe parts - A real shame as it appears that there is only one mounting that is offset by 1inch differnce between the two units.
If anyone is intrested I've listed them on...
