RE: Cops more merciful on Mercedes drivers?
Yeah! the older models had standard light bulbs.
When the H7 headlight bulbs fits OK, the smaller bulbs in taillight have different wattage, than the common one. I made the standard bulb fit (have whole box of them and don't feel like spending $$$ at the dealership for more) but the computer sense the difference and gives me the warning. I heard that on some models wrong bulb will disable cruise control, or other stuff.
