    R231 is not for me, nice car but not to my taste i'm afraid. I will need to make the COMAND in my R230 work better.

    Just fitted some led bulbs in the puddle lights in the doors on the E Class, tried to take some pictures of before and after but my phone ran out of battery as soon as I tried

    EDIT;

    managed to get a picture, cameras not great though,

    Cheers, better than the rusty galaxy it replaced, would have rather an R Class though, but the budget didn't stretch that far

    I found this electrical socket thing in the glove box, I assume it's to plug in something?? Any ideas.

    That connection in the glove box is the Aux in.
    Not sure on the other as ours is older so a bit different.
