i dont know about auto leveling, but adaptives are no big deal, i honestly wouldn't even spend $100 extra bucks on that feature.

I agree, lets just get someone started on the process, and then they can write up a DIY.

I am interested in that kit too. you would need a kit like this and then the hollow housings. the pic on that link though is also showing the angel eye rings. i wonder if they were able to affix the rings in a halogen housing.

OK.. I know some of you have been waiting on the edge of your seats- Today I installed my Xenon assemblies I got from Longtran. It was a piece of cake. basically all you need to do is add another ground wire and splice two other wires together. I'll write up something more specific in a day or so. Greg

You will get a 5 second light error message everytime you start the car unless you have your dealer remap the computer.

The adaptive and auto-leveling will not work unless you buy the retro fit kit. The kit is expensive ($1299) and not worth it, in my opinion.

Where could you buy this kit?
