Re: Upgrade Headlight Bulb in 2000 E350 ?
FWIW: Retrofitting HID elements without also replacing the reflector with a projector lens is fundamentally broken. It is very unlikely to result in reasonable low beams.
Swapping in projectors is lots of work, unless you can find a third party assembly for the whole thing -- I'm not aware of one for the ford vans.
I have the non-sealed beam type headlamps, and am happy with them, once I polished them and swapped in some Sylvania SilverStar Ultra bulbs. The PIAA's are likely even nicer, but are usually just a bit more money.
