I did further research and I discovered that C250s are only available in the Canadian market. If they are compatible, I might order a set of pairs.
These are for pre-facelifted w204s. C250 are in US too btw.

I contacted the manufacturer via their website and I was told that It would not be compatible with C250s. Some sellers on Ebay say that it is, some not. Even if it is for W204 before the facelift, C250 models are not mentionned. Why? What would be the reasons?

I just bought a pair of Spyder projector front headlights for my W204 C300 and wanted to replace the eyebrow lights to white 5000k LED ones, can you tell me which pair of LED wedge/194 lights would work error free? A lot of the LED lights i have tried are either too long or to wide to fit into the Spyder headlights.

You should try contacting SPYDER or the SPYDER distributor you bought it from. You might have a defective part.

Pretty sure MB has acknowledged this. There was a standard fix for this when I worked at Benz. Not a recall as such, but a modified part if the issue occurred...

I have a c class w204 2009 c220cdi and have had both rear tail lights replaced free of charge "twice".

I'm on my third set, they have upgraded them and are a 100% better, I don't think I'll have any more problems.

It should have been a recall when it first occurred for safety reasons

I think they were too busy crossing their fingers hoping it wouldn't be ongoing to stop and consider a recall :P

Are you looking for something similar to the headlights in this thread? These are pre face lift and have the led strip at the botom. They still sell them, just random distributors around the net.

no it doesn't but you have a xenon kit for 30 bucks and no need to drill, plenty of room inside the unit for the xenon adapters

yeah I'm interested in the ones the DOA has , the ones with the LED Tube to the centre of the lights , will those work for Canadian cars cause thats a Australian website, i probably won't be using xenon bulbs cause i want them to look like the stock fog lights / headlights, but I'm thinking they have to match the LED tube colours

For the people who have these Spyder headlights installed, did you get them from Ebay or somewhere else online?? I'm in the US and wondering if that is the best place?

Also have you had any dashboard error messages? Unlike the Depo Projectors there seems to be less people who have bought these and have them installed so not to sure how well they perform.

Thanks
