Thanks to MBenzNL aka Steve for the supply and fitment! and yes they are modified to work with the vacum system that is currently on my car - he butchered a pair of SL headlights to do so!!

and thanks to Richard for the LED city lights!

Look good mate. Are you impressed with them driving at night? I love my bi-xenon's, they make such a difference.

How much do MB charge for them?

Is the only difference more sliver lines + black mesh?

nope but some parts were from my old lights right and where where the other parts from that you got out of your trunk?

I remember you saying that you needed additional parts from SL headlights to make the vacum leveling work?

Don't you need some sort of washing or wiping facility for them to be kosher?

Lexus sell one car, IS300 with Styling Kit, which has HID lights and no form of headlight washing facility. They've been selling it for a couple of years.

Excellent!

Looking forward to the finished article.

How did you get on with the levelling? Is it via the current levelling system for the lights?

K.,

Do you have pictures of the LED bulbs for your side lights? Are they something like this?

Did you wire in a resistor too? to stop the dreaded 'bulb failed' dash indicator from lighting up.

Well impressive, good job K.! :D Heh I think I'm actually more impressed by your side lights (city lights) than the Xenons :p Only kidding, it all looks great :cool: :rock:

They were these PIAA bulbs

The H263 white/white bulb. When I tried them I not only got the bulb failure message it cut power off completely so I never even got to see them working.

Thanks for the info Rich, :crazy: Not suitable for your motor then?

I'm guessing that Koolvin has wired in a resistor to fool the ECU into thinking the 'standard bulb' is working normally.

*EDIT* D'Oh heh you beat me to it K. :p
