    I was under the impression that I didn't have any as the ground wasn't illuminated at all .

    But they are there and such is the useless 5W 501 capless .

    Get some 501 led upgrades or go set of 4 led projectors ( with any recommendations ) for my S204 .

    I just upgraded mine to projector lights. You are right the original ones give no light. £8 off ebay for two.

    I have similar, but Mercedes rather than AMG. I don't think they give enough puddle light, but herself likes them (and in theory it's her car) so they're staying.

    My original ones looked like this. I have a A209 though. Did have to file the rads off the corners on the door trim to get them to fit as they were tight 6F733FF6-2E70-4075-B9CE-164B4F409F83.jpeg 7436C012-033F-4C8B-A190-2D98ACDF4222.jpeg

    Mine have the most stupid streak of clear lense with 0 to the ground vertical light output .

    What we're they thinking !

    I've never looked at the ground, whether illuminated or not, as I've got in or out of my car :geek:
