Headlight replacement

I'd like to change the original headlights on my 290 to something more modern and brighter. Can I find something that will be just plug & play?

Thanks guys!

The answer is yes. If you have the part number of your traditional halogens you can do a search for a comparable CEE LED, but expect the cost for replacement to be around $250.00 for both low and high beams.

WOW, I was told they would be high, but $250 per side?!! I bought some NAPA halogen replacement lights for $10 each. THanks for the input.

Thumbs up

I just replaced the Burb's Low beams with THESE..
Hard to believe the improvement, if the low beams continue to perform well I plan to change the HB's also.

I also recently replaced the fog lamp housings and replaced the halogen bulbs with a HID conversion, even brighter, but the HID headlamps tend to irritate other drivers when used in a non-projection housing. They do work very well for the low mounted fog lamps though.
