I want to upgrade to HID's in my R170. I dont have projectors an I dont want to spend $200 on them.

I would like to know exactly what I need to order.

I want someplace cheap that ship's to Canada.

I want low beam and Fog lights if that's possible.

also do i need a Relay Harness?

Here are some places I found that sell them for cheap.

You have a pre facelift model so you will need a harness. I don't think you can use any HID kit with stock headlights, the deflector in the light unit is not the right design. The HID kit's are more for the projectors, if anyone knows more about this they will chim in and help you better than I.

HID kits installed in nonprojector systems are really not advise able. They do not project the right patter they dazzle oncoming traffic and frankly make your nice car look like its been modded by an adolescent. I've tried both ways on various vehicles so I have experience.
Go to theretrofitsourse.com. not cheap but inexpensive for the correct projector kit
