300ce HID CONVERSION

I have a 1992 300ce with European Depo headlights. I want to install an HID kit, but I don't see how its possible. Since the HID requires positive and negative, where would I acquire both positive and negative from the one wire that feeds the current headlights. I might be wrong, I did a little reading, but I am still unclear on how they install.

Any input would be much appreciated.

HID Kit

You might have to cut the connectors, I had a 300e with Euro light and the original plug don't fit, I you have H4, the the HID kit should fit with the H4 kit.

HID conversion

I have 2000 ML 430 and get a hold of 2005 ML 500 HID headlights and was wondering what is the procedure to convert my Non-HID to 2005 ML HID. I am mechanically incline.

YES, there IS. Do a projector retrofit HID setup like I have. Takes time and a bit of money, but it CAN be done.

See, now THAT HID kit is terrible. Bright, glare, non focused beam pattern. Retrofit proper projectors in with true D2S bulbs or you're a ricer.
