So 2 posts above I posted pictures, and you'll find that my old light is halogen, but what you don't see is that it's converted to HID with a ballast kit.

However, remove the kit and it's all back to stock.

The new lights are exactly these:

But I think I'm going to have to sell them because I am ordering ones from Gary Lo that will be plug, play, facelift, and converted all in one- apparently.

The Ebay item you purchased is not as described so you may be able to file a dispute. Looking at the connectors, the Ebay lights you bought are for 07-09 and not 03-06 as is claimed in the Ebay description. It's worth a shot at least.
It's a bit of a pain to convert but it's doable. I have done this a couple of times now and gone from Xenon back to Halogen without issues, but some coding is required.

Hi turbo97se,

Happy 2018 ~~
Thanks for the sharing, recently my 2005 pre-facelift E350's headlight with Bi-xenon and AFS were broken, after read your post, I decide to do the same retrofit with you, but I got some questions:
1) How about can bus connector? did you connect the two CAN BUS wire between headlight and vehicle?
2) If you do so, is that work perfect? the new headlight can be recognized by DAS/Xentry system ?
3) How did you calibration the new headlight ?

Thanks again.

I just ended up getting lights from Gary Lo at Suvneer... they were plug and play, returned the ones that needed retrofitting. Much better deal

Canbus Connectors

Where did you find all of your connectors? More so the CANBUS than the others.
