Hi there everyone,
I just purchased a set of illuminated door sill for my w203 C270. At first I though i could do it myself but....my nerves got the better of me and I dont want to ruin any clips or cut the wrong wires.
I was wondering if anyone here could advice where i can have this installed? Preferably around the sussex area? Is this expensive to install? help help help...i'd like it to look good in my car not in my sitting room...lol:):)

Where did you get the sills from? Are they OEM or aftermarket?

Hi sam,
how much would it cost to replace currents headlamps to projector headlamps? thinking of getting one and having it installed the same time as my illuminated door sill.
thanks

Hi there Miffy,

yeah i guess i could but just bit nervous doing DIY. A few things didnt do well when i did DIY at my home so better not risk it. So does the illuminated door sills look really smart/slick? does it really stand out when you open your door at night?

Can it be done on a 211. How much parts and labour. When next at a meet down south (really south like Ollies) may want it done.

MB do a OE kit for the 211 I think
