W204 C180 FL Headlight Conversion


EDD!E

Recommended Posts

Hi ... 

I heard from several W204 C180/C200 driver, a lot of them converted halogen type to projector type and LTA allowed the conversion? Is it True?

I've seen some converted to the projector lamp type.

This's a MB option but unfortunately most if not all FL W204 in Sg came with Halogen Lamp

I cannot say whether LTA approves this or not but it's a standard option for W204 and I see why not and not an after market conversion

I've not heard from my friend who has converted and has problem during his car inspection

Cheers

I'm a MB Whore! :)

It's definitely *NOT* LTA approved by changing from halogen to HID, however, if it looks OEM enough, the inspectors usually just turn a blind eye or simply do not know.

Where are you getting the conversion done? If i'm not wrong, @EleBest has also done many conversions in the past, he might be in a better position to advise.

Good luck with your inspection!

Guys,

I've walked down that road especially with my W203.

Upon getting the new ride, I went to Benzline to retrofit my headlamps to Bi-Xenon.

The lamps were from Hella with original Mercedes part numbers.

During my 1st inspection upon 3 years and follow up with yearly inspections, VICOM did not asked about the headlamps except the Lorinser twin exos that I had fitted.

For the exos, I got the relevant TUV documents from Lorinser and submitted them to LTA followed by an inspection.

After that they gave me a letter of approval for my exos which I kept in the car.

I did it the hard way :)

The car was later sold to my younger Bro and he drove it till end of the 10 years COE

For my previous FLW204, I changed to the projector type by one of our former site sponsor but I took them out cos it was for a LHD car.

IMHO If you're replacing the lamp to a standard MB option with original parts, they will likely not question you about the lamps.

Over here in Indonesia, almost all the FLW204 came with the projector or Bi-Xenon option

Hi... I'm yet to replace the headlight. Can't find time to do 😅  But according to my buddy, he get oem retro fit no need to recode.

I heard those using original from scrap yard need to recode existing ecu and Total cost around 2k together with headlight.
