    I know the AMG front bumper has driving lamps fitted as standard likes Vins and others but is there any lamps out there that will fit the standard Benz sport bumper??
    I seem to remember Vinny saying that he knew of some....
    Let me know...

    Hi Greg

    Don't the sport bumbers come with driving lamps anyway?

    If not, the stealership will sell you some corner units (the half oval type) which will slot into the existing plastic holes. The wiring loom should already be there.

    Alternatively, you might be ablt to pick up some Hella or Bosch ones from somewhere like Euro Car Parts or KMS.

    Regards

    There are no Aftermarket or MB fogs that will fit the facelift bumpers anywhere, After 2 years of searching for foggies I decided to buy the AMG bumpers.

    I can get you his e-mail nps, but I doubt he will make you some <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':('> he makes them out of Wood and fibreglass and then carves them and stuff.. look at the detail of the housings around the lamp glass and stuff. I rekon it probably takes him a day on each housing....

    I do know a guy who got some round piaa mounted in the holes <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=';)'> they look nice when they are on and they are almost invisible during the day. let me go find pics!

    Greg,

    You wanna visit the force that Dave Elcome works for <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=';)'> those guys did a great job of fitting flashing blue lights to the avantgarde grille of the E-Class estate patrol car. Hehe they could start a great side line of modding for joe public.
