Main beam blue light illumination has been a mot req for years now .
But its all down to the mot examiner and how well he is observant .

And as for the slk 170 as far as i can remember it does illuminate blue.

This is where it is on mine (RHD)

(As a side note, does anyone know what the second LCD display next to my clock is for?)

Mine's an Auto too, But nothing ever shows there.
That's what I figured it was for. Must have a loose connection or something.
I'll troubleshoot it later.
