AZN Optics 194 City lights for your W164

Hello!

AZN Optics is proud to present to the MBWorld community our line of 194 LEDs for the w164 model. These have been great hits with the 203, 204, 211, and 209 crowd, and now that we've had these test fitted and confirmed for the w164 audience, bringing them to you.

LED Description
These are super bright 360-degree shine LED bulbs with built-in load resistors,specially designed for European vehicles such as Mercedes, Audi, Volkswagen, Porsche or BMW, etc.

These OBC Error Free T10 Wedge LED bulbs will replace the stock 168, 194, 2825, 2821 or W5W bulbs.

Each LED bulb equips with 8 pieces High Power 1210 SMD CREE LED Chips, with built-in Load resistors. If you're not familiar with CREE, they're basically the best on the market. Most professional detailers prefer to use CREE LED chips for their lighting source for defect detection due to the high quality output.

Reviews
I have conducted a series of long tests and these LED bulbs light up perfectly and stay on error-free with no flickering. You can find reviews for these LEDs here:

So, how about showing a W164 with the lighting package (lights on) and your LEDs installed also? I would be curious to see both the white and blue on with the OE bi-xenons to see what the difference will be. Thanks.

If I had a w164 test vehicle here on site I can easily do that, or if any of my customers want to send any shots.

If you look at this review thread, there are lots of examples of my LEDs with original bi-xenons, diamond visions, 6000K, 8000K hids. Although it's on a different vehicle, really doesn't matter in terms of kelvin matching. OEM Bi-xenons are rated at 4300K, so my 5000K would be the best match.

All weekend orders have just been shipped out. Due to Columbus Day Holiday post office closure, orders had to be shipped out Tuesday.

Also, had a customer request install service this weekend. Pics were taken and will be posted for reference.

I got my order yesterday.

How the heck do you remove the park/city lights on the ML550? I know it's twist and plug/unplug but I can barely get my hands behind the plug.

Does the headlamp assembly need to be removed?

Thanks for your orders everyone. All orders placed as of now are packed and ready to ship.

I am officially out of stock of 5000K versions, but no need to fret.... I just got confirmation that a new batch has just been sent and I should be seeing it in the next few days. You can still order 5000K, but shipment will be delayed by a few days till I get them in. 8000K are still in stock and ready to ship immediately!

If you have larger angled needle nose pliars you can change em out without removing anything, but easiest way is to just remove that plastic cover to give you easier access to the twist knob. The cover is just screwed on and easy to remove and once you do, you should be able to hand twist off the bulb.

Fog Lights?

Got my city lights installed a couple of weeks ago and they look great. Now, the fog lights look a little strange. I have the lighting package and the fog comes on depending on the wheel input and the turn signals. So unless I always use the fogs, which I don't there is only one on at most times.

Do you have an LED solution for the cornering fog lights? Is it easier to change than the city lights (had my shop do it, as I got tired of cutting my hand!)? Is there any impact on the directional lighting aspect of the OE lighting package features? Thanks.

You have cornering fogs and yes, they do look a bit strange when you turn/signal. If you're asking for a solution to eliminate that feature, first place I'd look is through a STAR diagnostic unit to see if it can be disabled.

And regarding Fog lighting, most everyone prefer to go with an HID option as you'll have better visible light output. There are already other sponsors here that provide HID options.

All weekend orders have been shipped out.

5000K 194 LEDs are now out of stock, but my new shipment is scheduled to arrive Wed, so feel free to continue to place orders, but just expect your shipment to be delayed by a few days.

Also my test festoon and turn signals, so will be conducting live testing. Thank you to those who volunteered to try them out.
