The left cut-off should be lower. The reason, it restricts the light to on coming cars

You can make micro adjustments on the back of the headlights. up, down, left, right. The left projector beam needs to come up just a tad and have that step up to the right projector beam a bit closer.

My local guy install them and it only took him 45 minutes, just plug and play. I went to get a sandwich and when I came back it was done. I wanted to get some pictures but my stomach had other plans. I didn't see what the original bulb was as the vendor preinstalled the HID's and ballast's before shipping them. But the housing above the projector has H7 12V 55W for the bulb type.

OH MAN that looks soooo nice, where are you located? Does anyone know who can do these type of installation in the northeast?

you can, it's not hard and requires almost no tools. Probably just a 10mm socket, or something around that.

I also ordered a pair from fishcake321 on ebay. The seller was really helpful and confirmed that the projectors act as both high/low beam (bi-xenon), and the bulb size is 9005. Seller also noted that the H7 bulb in the reflector housing is angled as a fog light and will be activated when high beam is switched on. You can see this from the youtube video posted earlier by another member.

Now I am just debating if I should keep the ballasts that come with the headlight or order a pair of Denso from the Retrofit Source....

These lights look great! About to place an order for one.

But I had an idea! On my old car I had Yellow Highbeams and Fogs for inclement weather. The benz has LED DRL fogs which is cool but I love yellow fogs. I'm running the idea in my head but need to see it.

What do you guy think or

Dadirtypanda hope you don't mind but I used some of your pictures.

I've said on previous threads that I wanna keep my stock headlights but this thread and headlights are making me change my mind lol.....they're the closest to OEM out there and plug and play which is very convenient. I would love some more feedback from members here who already bought these on the quality of the product. I'm a little concerned about condensation??? I paid $140 for my HIDs alone so $469 for 2 projector headlights with HIDs already installed seems way too cheap imo ...but hey what do I know lol

I know, it does seem too good to be true... I ordered these lights from fishcake a few days ago and they will be delivered on Friday. I figured their cheapness outweighs the risk, plus I get to learn how to replace the headlights.

To anyone who has the DEPO lights: can you comment on the presence of any condensation? Anyone willing to take them through a car wash?

Clkboi mentioned that the lights he ordered for is CLK from fishcake had zero issues. Don't know if they were DEPOs. I'll probably order theses with 6000k's right away, also have a set of phillips crystal vision H7s to replace the amber high beams.

They don't make a 9005 dual filament bulb, how is the projector high and low?

You got ripped the **** off on your HIDs. This is my current spare / left over collection and there's maybe $100 here.

for my depo projector headlights in the jetta, the build quality is not bad especially with the $400 price tag including hid kit.

I did have condensation because i didnt seal the bulbs properly after installing hid. I ended up putting a lot more silicone and duct tape on top to prevent condensation.

haha I got my HID kit from the retrofit source which i know is pricier than most kits out there but maybe that's why you have so many kits lol...haven't had to buy a replacement bulb or ballast in over 2 years

Maybe your ballast is faulty seven? There's probably a replacement policy if something is faulty. Or, something about the car expecting resistance from the halogens and getting none from the HIDd

You need either error cancelers or the better option is to go to the dealer and change your computer to Xenon-Present!

Any idea what this will cost me and how long it will take, and if they'll give me any problems? How come it's only the left light?

I had Depo lights on my CLK. The first couple of days you will see condensation because the seal around the headlights needs to melt in and set proper.

If you are too worried about it put a silica gel in them for a couple of days

They charged me $60 when i did mine.(hourly rate) Takes about 5 minutes really. Anyone with a Star diagnostic tool (what dealers use to make internal changes to your car) can do it

You saying only one does it though is worrying me a little!

Do this please; Change your ballast from one side to another and report back to us

I like this idea a lot. Is there a titanium color high beam bulb maybe? It would be cool to experiment with colors and see what suits everyone better.

I installed them myself.. Took about 2 hours. Was pretty frustrating for me since one headlight bolt on the left side when seated in the car is a pain in the *** to take out(the upside down bolt)

Didn't get a chance to make a DIY but if you YouTube w204 headlight removal, I followed the first hit.

As for the headlight is this a common issue for only one to go out? Or if it is truly a computer error should both be out?
