As I read up on this I find two questions: 1. Has research found these to be the right ones? 2. How tough is the wiring problem?

A third question: An leakage problems?

Thanks,

Bryan

I bought Sonar Halo Projectors for mine .................

Absolutely no signs of leakage and I live in the the wettest place on the planet rainfall wise, (also the darkest place) ;)

The only issue I had was that when correctly aligned on Dip beam, the Full Beams were too high .....................

Patience, trial and error plus a Screwdriver and some small washers to pack the Full Beam reflector mountings so they angle downwards slightly was the answer, absolutely perfect now ;)

HTH,

Thanks -and Oregon weather is similar but for dry summers! New problem: Further reading fins that mine is a "pre-facelift" version and involves wiring problems. Ugh.

Just buy from MB Dealer the 2 plastic Connectors and the Terminals that go inside them from a later car, they cost peanuts ;)

They are listed as "Connector repair Parts" on EPC ;)

Look great you have to tie in the the halo Positive wire into a existing hot wire and I had to switch the turn signal plug in from my old lights about 1hr job and they look awesome
