Hello All,

I have an 2009 SLK 55. It has halogen headlights and no headlight washers. I came across these on eBay:

Depo 2005 10 Mercedes R171 SLK Class DRL Style LED Strip Bi Xenon HID Headlight | eBay

The auction states that these will fit all the r171's with the exception of the AMG.

A couple questions. Does anyone know why they wouldn't fit on an AMG model? Has anyone had any experience with "Depo" lights?

The output of the halogen lights on my car is pathetic.

Thanks for any input!

Steve

From Sean:

I don't see any mechanical reason why they shouldn't fit a 55 - the Halogen and Xenon lamp units bolt onto the same places - electrically, there are differences (the Xenon's have a ballast with a different connector etc, wash system, coding to say that the car has Xenons), but physically, they should bolt on.

Others have upgraded from Halogen to Xenon using factory parts

If they work on a halogen equipped 171 then a 55 with halogens should be fine!!

Cheers
Sean
