Post What did you do to your Benz today?

As posted in my friend's topic on the W201 section, I think it will be cool to have our own here...

I'll start then:

OEM trunk mat





Replaced the cupholder (comes with the whole bracket), the edge was peeled...

Good photos of your mods but why fit the chromed indicator bulbs in the rear they are meant for the front. Trust me, pull one out and put it in the front and compare it with the unchanged side, much better. Or if you don't want to go to that bother check my avitar or my other front of car pictures.

It will flash orange so should still be legal (certainly is in UK)

I will put chromed ones in the front too (they will arrive soon). They have different pins than the rear. IMHO the rear looks nice with chromes too, no yellowish reflection.

Good thinking

I also have one of those boot protectors it does keep the boot carpet undamaged (especially as I usually have a wheel chair & other heavy metallic mobility bits in the boot)

One pic shows a bright light on the right wall with almost no light on the left. The caption under it says "second adjustment ...just perfect".

What were you actually adjusting?
Were you playing with,.... the adjustment screws on the lens housing?

...and... now you're running 65 watt off-road bulbs in the 55 watt OE housing!!...a little more draw than recommended...
