Replacment headlight clusters

Hi everyone. I'm thinking of replacing the headlight clusters on my R170. I've seen replacements available on the internet. Can anyone recommend a product? Is it a reasonable DIY job? Thanks in advance.

If your SLK has the factory Xenon headlights, your out of luck. Replacements are only for the factory Halogen and 'will not' work in a car with original Xenon set-up. I know. I tried.

Try searching the general mod forum, many people, myself included, have changed out our headlights. You have a slight disadvantage in needing to find one for RHD, but good luck.
