Hi!
This goes out to those who had installed there HIDs themselves.
On a W 204, where did you guys install your ballast for the left low beam or for that matter both for high and low for the left side?
Having trouble locating a spot to mount the ballast.

Not sure if you're talking about using bixenons, but the factory doesn't use them for hi beams (use halogens instead) because of the response time. Bixenons have a slow start up.

I purchased the $60 HID kit. They work great. The kit came with an error canceling device.
