particular HID kit

well ive wanted to buy new lights to make them brighter since i got the car, i found this site http://www.shepherdautoparts.com/aut...Obw5XDkA==.htm
will that particular kit fit on my car? or do i need to buy a new headlight assembly, or will those HIDs fit right into the stock headlight itself? i used search but unfortunatly nothing answered that question.
thanks!

They state they're for a 1999 SLK, so hopefully they will fit. I'd be concerned with the low price. What do you actually get for under $60, any quality? Personally, I'd go with a better brand name kit and spend more.

It says FOG LIGHT so no it won't fit in your headlights

No mainstream company makes the kits..Not Philips, neither Osram. All these kits are made be a couple of mega manufacturers in China and then shipped here.

I have used one of these in my 07 Sonata, when the cheapest one on ebay you could buy $200 shipped. 3 and a half years later they still work just fine.
