Some of the new cheap AE bulbs have too much room around the back housing of the bulb, presumably for cooling, and a couple of members have had issues with moisture/fog getting into the housing. A while back I believe Angelbright had the best quality (and brightest) AE, but they were a pricy $300 per pair.

I haven't researched this issue in over a year, so my views might be a little dated. good luck.
This is a testament to how great this site is. Most sites you get scolded, told to search and your question removed. At the Fest you get a great answer from a knowledgeable source with a little encouragement to look at the many threads on the subject.

I also found out how lucky we are by looking for a DIY for a Benz. I need to replace a door lock actuator on an 04 CL600. Looking through the Benz sites for a DIY is ridiculous. You may as well just ask which dealership they took their car too.

I got my AE's from a forum member that upgraded (again), I think they are the V3's and I love the color (i.e. white instead of yellow). I just ordered an interior package off ebay as well.

If you go to bavauto.com they have some great DIY videos.
