I thought all SL models came with HID.

When you turn on your lights, do you see a slight flicker at all? If you do, then they're HID.

Cheapest way is to get a conversion kit. A lot of us have done it that way. Best way is to get OEM HID headlight assemblies & ballasts. Cost is higher though. Search around in the lighting section, you should find tons of info.

Yeap you should have HIDs. All you need is a set of D2S bulbs. I would stick between 6-8K. 8K have a bit more blue output. 6K has a slight hint of blue. It also depends on the quality of the bulbs.

They should actually be $80-$100 EACH!

I have an 05. Put new ballast in and bought some 8k bulbs for like $60. I have to turn my light switch on and off 4 or 5 times to get the bulbs to come on. I've been told its because they are not OEM bulbs. Where did you get your bulbs 07maximan?
