    Not wishing to prempt his reply, but I think you need to replace the WHOLE unit - not just the glass/perspex. Its an expensive mod.

    Yes, unfortunately you will need to replace the whole light units. It is not possible to change just the lenses for the main lights.

    However, I believe that it 'may' be possible to change the glass cover on the AMG foglights.

    I think R2D2 Was selling a pair for about £450, which sounds expensive but they retail at £900 per lamp I believe. Give him a PM

    Yep, you'll need to replace the whole unit. I had one replaced and it was indeed £900 :eek:

    The frosted look on earlier W203 are Xenon - the crystal clear look on later W203 and Bi-xenon. It's the bi-xenons you need to look for.

    They do come up for sale from time to time though, so keep an eye out both here and on ebay.

    You might consider Europe too, as I believe it's possible to switch between LHD and RHD with a lever - never done it though.

    For 450 of her majestys finest i purchased a set of uk clear lense lights for my C32 when i had it and another 150 for the fog lamps, all off ebay and they were the real MB MCOY.

    Try a search there first as it might save you a bob or 4.
