:biglaugh:A plus, I'm impressed. Did you use a "enigma" machine to dichiper the code.I get the impression he is asking do Bi-X's have Xenon high and low beams because he can see yellow halogens coming on when the switches to high(main) beam.
In that case the answer is yes, a Bi-X headlamp is a single bulb with a flap to block some of the light when your in low beam, the halogen bulb does come on with the high beam mode but it is NOT the high beam.
:tu:OK, we understand your question and Dan was right from the start. The bi-xenons use one D2S HID bulb for the low and high beams and the high beam is assisted with a secondary H7 halogen bulb, which most mistake for the high beam. Confusing but it works.I am so sorry guys
I meant to write that up in proper English. This is what happened.
After I traded 08 C to 06 SLK, I thought the car was equipped with bi-xenon.
then I was on my way to movie theatre with my girlfriend to see Angels and Demon.
then out of curiosity, I switched to high beam to see how far it would reach. then I discovered that it does not seem to be as bright enough as the c class.
so when I got to the theatre, I checked em out. when the car was on low beam, it was definitely, xenon but when I switched to high beam, it seemed like a halogen rather than xenon. then I got mad. I thought dealer sold me a car with wrong info.
as I got into the theatre, I could not resist my self asking you guys. I wanted to ask you all as fast I could that I posted the question over the i phone. because, I was in such a hurry, I just.... garbled I guess. I dont know why but I could not think of the proper term too. sorry for the confusion
so I get the impression that the 06 SLK is not bi xenon that only the low beam is the xenon? right?
SLK world ROCKS
