Title: 3rd brake light
Post by: Casey on 17 October 2011, 09:43 AM
I saw this interesting modification to a W116 for sale - a third LED brake light installed underneath the license plate.  Seems an odd place for it, but I think I like it more than putting something in the rear window (not that I like them at all):

I have a hard time understanding how the vehicle (http://www.importeuro.com/vehicles/1979-mercedes-benz-300--3#.TpxaY_2WJG4) is in this stunning of condition with nearly 300k miles...guess the owner just took really good care of it!  Just goes to show how actually giving a care about your car can make it last indefinitely.  Definitely a good setup for hot sunny climates - white exterior, parchment interior, and dark tinted windows.
