Hey Everyone...

I just bought some BOSCH clear blinkers for my 92 400E. I bought mine brand new in the BOSCH box from EBAY, but I know Bekker's caries them as well. Make SURE you buy BOSCH and not that crappy "In-Pro" brand. I think at Bekkers they go for $99/pair. I installed mine the other day. They are not like the clear blinkers on the 1995 E class, these are ALL clear, no orange or yellow whatsoever. I also bought some of those "blue" colored bulbs that you can get from an ASIAN rice-rocket "autosports" store for the blinkers. They are twice as bright and dont give off a blue color at all, they are almost HID looking white. Anyway, I hear these blinkers compliment a set of Euro lights really well, so I guess thats next.

Bekkers clear "blinkers"


Could you describe the procedure to swap out the blinkers? How easy was the process? You mentioned using another bulb. Did you have to make any changes to the wiring or just use a colored bulb?

Wow, you stuck in super white bulbs in your indicators? I thought cops REALLY didn't like that...which ones did you exactly get? Can you read the name off the box?


The indicators are merely attached to the car via a tab...all you have to do is first remove the bulb from the indicator, depress the tab, and the indicator comes out. Then you merely put in the new indicators, and the tab will snap into place, and replace the bulb. There is no fancy wiring job required.

clear indicators

On the blinkers...

When i remove the turn signals in my 92 400e, i just depress the tab (under the hood, in the back of the lamp) and pops forward, then I twist the bulb out

On the super white bulbs...

I have superwhites in the headlights. After recieving my clear turn signals, i kept the stock bulbs in them. With the lights on at night, the darn parking lights STILL looked YELLOW. So, I recalled seeing that super bright turn signal light on all the Japanese cars. I went to a local Jap car tuner here in Houston, called CARBOY, and they had the bulbs. The box is written in japanese or something like that, and there's not even any english writing on it. So therefore, i dont know the brand. The light bulb is blue, but the light it puts out is ABSOLUTELY a very very very bright white. I made him promise me they wouldnt put off blue light. the bulbs were expensive (about 14 bucks APIECE) but I'm serious when I say they were worth it. It complements the superwhites in the headlights and fog lights very well.

On trouble with cops...

I work with plainclothes narcotics officers for the Houston PD, so needless to say, I'll probably never get a ticket. But look at it this way...and I'll tell you from experience, most cops know very little about these laws. They are used to hassling the kids and teens who drive the little rice rockets with all those funky christmas tree colored lights and stuff. If you get pulled over, casually explain it's a Mercedes, it's German, and thats how you bought it from the dealership (thats how they come from the factory). 9 times outta ten, he'll relize he knows nothing about German cars, and it's possible it came like that, and let you go. TRUST ME on that one! Oh, by the way, as long as the light is white and not red or green or blue, etc.

Wow, I wrote a book....or maybe a manual....hehe....Peter

I have them on my 560 SEL. Got them on Ebay. Even the Japanese bulbs are not bright enough to resemble the headlights. Raybrig 8/35watt and I forgot the other one's name. One is clear filled with Xenon gas and the other one is supposedly the same but, tinted somewhat. I suggest the 15/50watt bulbs. They are better. Have to get those.

As for installation, just look in the engine bay. There is a white turn wheel and you can just unscrew it by hand. Push the corner light forward and out it comes. It is very ez.
