Mercedes CLA Standard Headlamp vs Bi-Xenon Headlamps



Why is Mercedes nickel and dimming with the projectors. I can recall and other manufacturers now that don't offer projectors as a standard. I can see this be normal years back but this is 2013. The standard headlights look really ugly, not sure how much the upgrade but this is a must.

Wow I never knew that bi xenon headlights weren't standard. That's strange.

I think this is something that should change. Hyundais and Mazdas come with projectors standard nowadays.. They could have at least made it a single xenon projector.

I can believe that actually, the projectors and lense they use are quality pieces. rather than just dishing out some crappy lense and projectors they would rather just not have it in the standard package. Unlike mazda and the other brands, yes they do have projectors but not the best.

I think the B-Xenon headlights would look better with a full chrome housing rather than the body colored type/clear housing.

I guess it just depends on the taste but i think its not bad that the bi-xenons have a contrast so it standout in detail a little more. But it really depends.

Yes they are forsure. I remember when my friend had a frontal accident and The parts list from the collision center showed one headlamp to be 900$.
