Does anyone know if the red lighting under the center console is new on the 2013 model? or can that be found in the 2012 models? If so, is it standard? If a 2012 model does not have it, can it be added after purchasing?

Also, is it possible to add the doorsill illumination after purchase?

The interior lighting was an option on my MY12 R172 SLK55AMG don't think it will be a dealer fit item but you never know.....don't know about the sills.

In the US it comes standard with the optional sport package. It is available in 2012 & 2013 years. Lighted door sills can be purchased thru your dealer parts dept or online. Installing them properly can get quite involved, you may want dealer to do this.

Thanks

Thanks, but I was under the impression that the Sport package was an option for the 250 and 250, but was "N/A" for the AMG, which is what the Dealer Ordering Guide Says. I know that it is standard in the 2013 AMG, but I'm looking to buy a used 2012 AMG, and the Porsche dealer selling it says that he doesn't see any red lighting (but he doesn't seem to know what I'm talking about, either; he keeps calling it "dashboard lighting"). I was going to fly to Scottsdale to take a look myself, but I wanted to see if it was even possible for it to NOT have that feature before I make the trip out there.

Get the VIN, one of us will run it and see if the option shows as installed. It shows as "valid" for the 2012 '55.

You'll want that anyway for the carfax.

Let me know what you find. I ran a carfax (clean) but want to get a PPI done from a local benz dealer before buying too.

awesome thanks

that's great. So 877 "Ambience Illumination" means it does have it, right? And then I could always install the doorsills if I'm really set on that. Looks like I'm buying a car this weekend!

Sport Package lighting is red but footwell lighting is ambient warm white color like the incandescent bulbs that are going to be outlawed soon... Edison will be rolling over in his grave.

Hi, I was wondering if you could obtain the Datacard for VIN:
WDDPK7FA6DF063064


The one I was going to buy got sold before I could go get it, so I'm hoping this one would be a suitable replacement!

Thanks!
