Which one are you referring to? The reflectors on the side of the front bumper are just reflectors. They don't light up like the ones on Mercs

Did you try http://www.ledlight.com/? I got mine from there. Or you can buy one of those 6LED from BavAuto.

By the way, I'm getting a second set of tail lights just to test out the smoked look. I'll PM you when I get the results back.

I went the excessive route by undoing the rubber seal of the moon roof, fish my hand through the interior of headliner and then push the tabs in. It's very labor intensive, but it's better than damaging the clips or the retainer. They are a PITA to fix.

Do you have the correct voltages for those bulb codes mainly for error codes?

There are two clips that, when pushed in, pops right off just like the one in the rear. They are located on the side that's closest to your front winshield (far side would've been easier to say) There are instructions in your owners manual...i think? There is also a REALLY REALLY good pic on one of the threads for LED installation too. If you look at the light fixture directly underneath it you can make out two distinct grooves where the clips are. You really only have to get one of them unclipped and you can then slide your hand down and undo the other one. Good luck

On a side note, i have LED's in the map lights & dome light (Bimmian Hi output LED's) and they're all wacked out. The map light ALWAYS go on correctly but the dome sometime does. When it does and i leave it on for awhile, it just goes out and the floor light LED's go on ?!?!?!?! I've tried the 24 LED from BAVauto but i didn't like the way the light looked through the cover. Any ideas?

Does anyone know which LED's work for the reverse lights? The bulb is clear and it says 12v/21w. I cannot find any ones that work. The bulb has the same base as 164/198 's but it has a bigger/longer bulb than the 164/198's?
