I bought my from AliExpress.com. Work great and they say Mercedes benz when it lights up in blue. Very easy to install but I had them installed.

about 10 work days but I have gotten other things in 4 business days and on the other hand I have had it take 4 weeks. if they give you a tracking number use it it ususlly tells you when it gets to usa then it takes a few days after that

I too ordered them from China and they showed up about 3 weeks later. I was going to pay someone to install them and thought I'd just do it myself...How hard could it be? I got the power for the driver side sills by tapping into the light under my front drivers seat, which comes on when I open my door and exactly the same thing for the passenger side...took me about an hour or so...looks really nice with a "Mercedes Benz" that lights up in blue.

I'm very interested in ordering some of these also. Can you guys post some pics of yours illuminated? I have to admit some of the cheaper ones online aren't as nice as what I had in mind..

The ones I bought are great. better than the MB ones because even the rear sill says Mercedes Benz not just Benz. I will be home in a few days and I can send pictures then but I do not have them with me. If you want to wait till I get home I will Gladly send you pictures.

you now need to change out the projection light at the bottom of each door so that instead of clear white it project the Mercedes benz emblem in blue.

What projection light at the bottom of the door? I have no lights at the bottom of any of my doors. When I use my fob to unlock the door, there is a projection light built into the rear view mirrors which project the light down to the ground.

I do remember someone talking about projection lights with the Mercedes Benz logo that illuminates the ground when you open the door....I'd buy those in an instant if I could find them...lol

At the bottom of my doors there is a plexiglass cover that you remove with a light that has a plug at the back of it. You then plug in the new light. See at the bottom of the door if there is a clear lens. if you have the lens the plug may be there. You take the lens out with a plastic knife or tool. If not I do not know how you could do it

I believe these are what they are talking about. I've been wanting to do this mod also. Can anyone else vouch for these?

Bought mine off AliExpress and couldn't be happier. I got the ones which both illuminate and move in a certain motion when the doors are opened.

takes less than a minute to install on each door. have it on 2 of my cars. i dont care what some think, i reckon its nice, especially at night.

PS: just make sure you order the exact same lights as your photo. some will come in all white/clear instead of the white/red as shown in your pic.

I checked it out on his instagram.. Let me clarify.. His door sill LEDs are sequential. It lights fully initially then the LEDs trail sequentially from left to right on the door sill.

He was NOT talking about the projector lights moving. Moving projector logos would be awesome but I have not yet seen that..
