I have a '98 SLK230. I had driven cars with Xenon HID lights and love them. The SLK
does not come with HID lamps, but I saw conversion kits for $1000 or so. I was ready to buy one of these kits but then I read that the lens on the outside of the car is made for the current bulb, and replacing it with a different bulb would screw up the beam pattern...even if the new bulb were .025" off. There is a $ back gaurantee on the HID kits. Can anyone give me advice??? These kits are the same balasts and HID lamps as the factory would install; I'm more worried about the beam pattern.
