Good evening all, thinking about installing the LED start to my car, has anyone installed this? and if so could you please advise where I should wire it on to.

Also has anyone installed a star bonnet emblem to a E350 coupe before? and if so where did you buy the star from that will fit this vehicle?

Once again thanks for all your support
Regards
Allan

If you mean putting the stick up bonnet emblem on when you have the big star on the grille it's possible but considered 'bad form old chap' and more than a little naff.

It's a bit like fitting leapers on later jags.

Bonnet star with sport grill might be "more than a little naff" but the LED star would take it to a whole new level.

Oh I want to see this. Popcorn, John?

Some 22” chrome spinner wheels would go well along with this mod...

Yes guys get the point, suppose the bonnet star is dead in the water before it even got off the ground!
What about the LED grill? good idea?
And does anyone know where to take the wiring from?

Lets just say its not to my taste but its your car :)

I suppose this isn't too bad.

I wonder if you could get illuminated seat piping too? Maybe around the sides of the front headrests. That’d be AWESOME.

I like the idea of some nice UV lighting from the steering wheel shining against the face, then when you grin your teeth can substitute for flashing another driver out at ( for instance) a junction :cool:

How about light pipes running along panel edges? That’d be well cool.

That lighting needs to extend along the front edges of the rad grille blades...

Come on guys we are all grownups here. The OP only asked where it would be wired. I unfortunately don’t know.

On the other side of the argument, things like that personal taste and everyone is entitled to their choice. I hope someone that knows where it is wired comes along soon to offer help.

Simplest way is to tap into a sidelight.

It would look like a “Council House” at Christmas, !
Only my opinion.
