Question Anyone put a lighted star on their R170?

Just wondering if anyone has put one of the lighted LED stars on their R170 yet. I know it's a big star (7") and it would take some serious modding to get it to fit the grill opening. Am I the only one who wants to put one on my car?

I already have the W209 grill (for about 4 years) and it looks good on the car but the LED star is even bigger than that star. Gonna have to take a real good look at it and see if I can make the star fit the grill instead of the grill fitting the star....

Try searching the forum.

Always start a search 'SLKWorld.com' to get forum specific results.

As you are after R170 parts 'SLKWorld.com R170' will narrow it down further.

I know this has been done with the 171 but can't remember a 170.
