I have a set of 1 month old halo ones for sale that are blacked out - $130 shipped to you. The back rubber grommets are cut for HID headlights. Just a heads up with all of these there is some mist inside after it rains out , it clears up after the rain though

Thumbs up Projector Headlights

Most of the one-piece projectors on the market are made by Spyder -http://www.spyderauto.com - you can take your chance on e-bay or buy direct from a retailer. Check this site out - http://www.buyhaights.com/products/1998%252d2004-Mercedes-SLK-Halo-Projector-Headlights-%252d-Chrome-%252d-Spyder.html

I searched for a week or so to find the right deal with free shipping - ended up getting a good deal on eBay; Genuine Spyder projectors w/6K HID Kit for 258.99 w/free shipping. Same deal is still available - http://www.ebay.com/itm/130730247800?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p398 4.m1439.l2649

Hope all the links work for you.

I bought mine on e-bay over a year ago and paid $229.00 including shipping, Genuine Spyder projectors. I could not fine the same sight. But there are a lot on e-bay from $217.00 up to $300.00 for the same lights. The only thing I had to do was use my turn signal sockets and hard wire the halo rings to the parking lights other than that they are pull and play. Took me about one hour to install. Good luck.

Did everything you needed come in the kit? Did you install them yourself? I understand that new ballasts are required and some programming of the lighting control system is needed.
I am not so concerned about the physical installation but admit to wiring concerns.
Thanks.
