To fit proper Zenons is a big job. By law, you must have headlight wash, so if you havn't, add that to the list. The height is automatically adjusted via sensors on the front & rear susupension. The cost of new light units alone is scary. I wouldn't bother. Fit some HID bulbs instead.

I can give an idea of the cost for the parts on the 203, should be similar to the 209..

Xenon headlights ~£1800
Auto-levelling loom and sensors ~£150

As type49 says, expensive!

As a retr0-fit from MB expect to pay ~£3000+

Hid kits consist of the bulbs and ballasts and wiring connectors. A quick google will give you many suppliers. Expect to pay £150 - £300.

BTW they are illegal for road use, no matter what the seller may claim.

Ive got hids in my 210,theyre a nice bright light but sometimes too bright,the lenses arent designed for the brightness.Luckily ive got hydraulic suspension allowing me to adjust the car to the lights but the phumb wheel will do the same thing.Id say if you want to stay legal'ish just fit some brighter bulbs.
