Hi guys, I noticed that I was struggling to insert the key into the dashboard the other night when it was pitch dark. Am I right in thinking that there should be a thin light around the key hole to help at night or am I imagining it? (I was using gloves and thought that might be the reason....but I cannot remember if there is supposed to be a light around it or not)...can someone put me out of my misery??:|

yours is a 2013 and his is a 2015 so maybe that option was added on the later build?

Ah. Lighting pack? All our cars have or had the lighting pack. That would explain it.
i checked his datacard but could not locate yours to check earlier.

I thought "of course it lights up" but then I went and checked and mine doesn't M/Y 2013 250 CDI.

No footwell lights or puddle lamps either ... Not bad for a £32,000 (list) car, thank goodness I didn't buy a cheap one! :wink:

For £200 on the SLC you can get "logo projector lights" in the front doors. Classy.

You can buy a blingy crystal encrusted adhesive surround for the keyhole - the advert always comes up when you search Mercedes accessories.
It does look a bit naff & girlie but does the job of making the keyhole a little more visible even at night.

In all seriousness, I'm staggered at how stingy MB are with the "niceties", no footwell lights or illuminated ignition surround as standard... thank goodness they're keeping a tight rein on costs, gotta fund the £1B Formula 1 habit somehow.
