It’s a regular 6 pin wiring harness, you can get the pieces from any Mercedes dealership. You need two tops, two bottoms, and 10 of the little metal pieces. I went and they knew exactly what I was talking about; I asked for the pieces and the tech responded asking if I was installing euro headlights. That’s what I did and they are installed and look great.

Why 10 of the little metal pieces when you have 6 per side, did you mean 12? Just trying to learn something. Thanks

The lights only require five connections per side.

$10 delivered.
Just wanted to add a picture of a W126 AFTER installing Brake Light Upgrade. Sent by the owner.

Still a couple available. PM if interested.

This from the owner,

"Hi Gary,

Thanks so much for the kit. Super easy, a couple of minutes with the soldering iron and done!

Have a great day!"

In my opinion this upgrade is an absolute MUST. I've done both of our cars and can't imagine driving with the standard brake lights. Have someone apply the brake lights of your car while you look from a ways behind. They are WEAK.

These additional bulbs make the difference between running lights and BRAKE lights significantly more noticeable. Very strongly recommended.
