    I am actually tempted to do this, makes the car safer in terms of brake warning but also brings it up to date.

    That set of wheel caps for the first order, is still up for grabs ;)

    I fitted one to my old W168, wasn't that difficult - would be even easier in a W202, as no messing with the tailgate rubber grommets, to keep the wiring neat and hidden.

    I'm positive that the retrofit would significantly reduce the likelihood of a rear end collision & the idea of fitting a retro kit is a superb one.

    Thanks David, it's your's and others' support that made this possible - without it I doubt I would've taken that step from a home-made enthusiast contraption, to a commercially available gadget :)
