hey all - been a long time - how are you all?

I still have my R170 - drive it a bit. The one thing that kills me is having to "slap" my right tail light when i turn my lights on as they are faulty as most people's are.

I have just ordered these LED ones from the same seller.....cant wait to get them. It will legitimately change the way I feel about the car haha.

I know they will come down in price - but I just cant wait. I thought bugger it and just ordered and paid without thinking! Hope they are worth it!

I have sold my black 20's - using the 18 inch CLS55 AMG wheels again.

Might hunt for something different - but am enjoying the more comfortable ride for now!

Hey mate - this wont apply....

The MB tail lights had a problem (common in other models too) by where the contacts moved in the actual tail lights due to heat most commonly. These tail lights will be manufactured completely differently and use led lights instead of single individual bulbs.

I hate to say it but the quality of these will probably be better than the original MB ones!

Will post pics when done!

I emailed the seller and told him we would be intertersted ina G/B for under 3 bills at least. I will let you all know what he says but like Brabus slk says wait unless this seller lowers his price. I would say around $250.00 to $275.00 and even I would join in!!!

Me 2!
Good call Mikey.
If you rush out & buy them now you just get riped off. They will be around for ages just like the projectors & the clear headlights.
The trick is to get as many people in at once from the same seller otherwise price won't come down, I reckon.
I totally agree with this and I know that I have paid a lot for them -

If you can wait - I urge you to do so - as they will drop at least one hundred dollars in price soon.

I am just impatient and I have wanted them so badly for the SLK for so long that I probably would have paid even more - like 500 for them if I had to!

But if you have more patience than me - I urge you to wait!

Having said that - I look forward to getting them and will post high res pics at night time and day time when they arrive!

I just got the following message from the ebay seller.....


Dear nickstillwell,

JUST INFORMED:DELIVERY TIME:7TH, MAY.
DO YOU WANT TO CANCEL IT?


- 175535

Not very impressed!

I think I wont bother cancelling - will just wait. Annoying though!

Bear this in mind if you buy them.
