Mercedes-Benz E-Class vehicles have been using Lumiled daytime running lights beginning with the 2010 model year. The design for these DRLs were horizontal with a kink on one end, described as resembling a hockey stick in various forums. For the incoming model year, Mercedes-Benz has reverted to a straight horizontal daytime running light design.
A retrofit kit is being offered at the same time to owners of previous editions of the E-class sedans and T-variants who want to convert their “hockey stick” daytime running lights to the new straight horizontal design. This conversion service is to be offered by Mercedes-Benz dealers to owners who want their daytime running lights converted from the angled design to the straight design.
The kit contains all necessary components for conversion to the straight LED daytime running lights, including the chrome trim. The conversion kit is part number A212 906 0151 and costs € 385.00 or around $510.
