No, they do not glow, they actually light up.
They are wired into the car. I have no idea how they did it. I was at such a loss when I tried.
They are fairly thin, and there is a thin strip, paper thin, that is attached to the wires, that sits under the writing MERCEDES-BENZ; that is what makes it illuminate. In pitch black, it looks so good!
In daylight you can't even tell if they're on or not with the sun on them.
I was a little shocked they were just stick on to the old ones. I didn't want that. But whatever, they look good and I'm happy with them now.
But I heard (from Benzsport) that you will get a deal on them if you have 2 other people go in on a pair also?
JJ, I don't know much about tires, so I can't help you there.
As for the 48K mile service (80km), is that the same as the 45k service (for the US)?
