not a fan of what you’re doing but each to their own!
Kit can be bought in Poland amongst other places, suggest you contact the seller for any specific info?

Thanks, I did that but, seller ask help from me:). And yes i understand your point. My car has front collision,:( so i decided to do something else to this car. I have own 2 other ORGINAL R230 500SL, and it is nice car.

I am from Finland
Ok. Here it would be highly illegal to do. I don’t know about Finland, but what you’re planning to do is to fit lamps with different beam focal points due to different fitting coordinates, as a 230 is not a 231!

So you’ll end up with a beam pattern that is not suited to the car, which is dangerous.
