Good job. I like it. Now I have to do that too.

I have seen cut-outs earlier. Is it just plug and play or more complicated job?? Idk where to plug that connector.

What was the price to do footwell mod??

Thanks!

The light clips into the cut-out, just like other Mercedes interior bulb holders, however the plugs you see in the pictures above I put in myself, and did my own wiring from the front power socket, terminated with corresponding plugs (F).

The lights (p/n A2118203801 - Interior Lamp) were under £6 each, bulbs - about £3 for 10 pieces, plugs and wiring - probably another pound ... not an Earth-shattering cost

Good. Thank you for advices. Do you know if I could buy it on AliExpress?? Shipping on eBay is so expensive for Serbia. Or could you send me a link for site where you bought it.

No worries

I bought the OEM lamps directly from Mercedes (always do with genuine parts).

I'm sure you can buy stuff from AliExpress, and the shipment shouldn't be more than usual (i.e. free most of the time).

Just search for "festoon COB blue" or "festoon SMD blue" and and select 36mm (you can push in a 39mm bulb too, if 36mm is not available).
