Pre F/L fog lamp

This is the right unit - isn't it?

I think the seller is a bit confused...

From the list 'from 9/30/07' so I'd suggest not.

I said - I think the listings are wrong/unit is correct!

If you ignore the title of the listing and look at the fitment table further down, it says this unit will fit..

2009-2010 SLK300 171.454
2007-2010 SLK350 171.458
2007-2010 SLK55 AMG 171.473 from chassis # F 177230 from 9/30/07

I know that I tried a fog light unit before fitting the LED/DRL’s and it looked right but the glass was angled and so didn’t fit. I think it was for a model with the fogs that come on when turning the corner.

^Probably I should take this opportunity to change to LEDs...

The glass in my RHS has been cracked for years - about two weeks after I fitted it. Y'day the bulb blew and on close inspection the reflector inside was degrading. I don't think the Chinese versions like to be on all the time - as DRLs. Maybe I'll have another look at yours at the June meet, if you're attending.

Sorry, I can’t make that one as I’m away.

If you can do a bit of DIY then they’re easy to fit. You just need to ‘adjust’ the bracket they supply. Add a couple of resistors for the CamBus and use a DRL relay for the running lights.
About a days work all in.
