W212 2009 E class FACELIFT UPGRADE [BODY KIT CONVERSION]

*THREAD WILL CONTINUALLY UPDATE*
expected look after conversion
Spoiler











Hello there, il try to keep it short and simple.

Im owning W212 2009 E Class 250 CDI and i want it to upgrade to the new facelifted look
Conversion on car will start in 2 weeks aprox.

My first steep will be adding second exhaust for body kit to apply normally.

The rest of process will be carried out by professional car repair shop best in my area.
Things that trouble me:

-My front bumper has xenon headlight wash, the new one facelifted bumper dose not have slot for it, can washer be disabled and remowed properly? (i wont miss it)

-Conversion kit comes with front and tail lights, as you know they are not OEM MB (original), will i be missing some functions regarding front headlights and degraded quality in comparison to original facelift headlights (will i lose turning lights function, will errors pop up on car computer....)

-Just of curiosity, Can i fit original facelifted headlights into preface lifted model of car in software speaking manner, (i googled original headlights A2128205539 and A2128205639)

-Will conversion complete with error free on car computer?
My vehicle, random photo

Speak to Chris at CKM Car Design in Sweden, he does many of the parts you will need to do the conversion using OEM kit and converters.

As for whether you can get rid of the washers will depend on local laws. In the UK for example with certain lights you have to have self levellers and washers by law.

UPDATE:
I gave up from conversion, why?
Because after gathering info from many side parties who had been in this situation and made same thing as i want to do they all told me same thing - To much problems with electrics (headlights adaption and needed converters) and after i heard plastics are bad quality which are not OEM MB by the way obviously if you look the price of the kit, i just quit from all.

Im glad i didn't rush into this.

Special thanks to Andrew-UKR for everything and also [email protected] CAR Design for clarifying what converters i need for those headlights if I buy them.
