The Detroit Auto Show of 2016 has unveiled quite a lot of automobile advancements in the industry that take the driving experience further than it has ever been before. One car that captured our attention is the new 2017 Mercedes E-Class that takes autonomous driving for civilians onto a whole other level. The new sensors, camera features, and lighting technology equipped on this vehicle are absolutely breathtaking and make driving something that would have only been dreamt of in movies. Here are some of the best driving assist features seen on the new E-Class:
LED lighting technology is growing at a rapid rate and sometimes difficult to keep up with the new technology coming out. One specific new design is the diffuser mirror design built onto the tip of the LED bulb to create a cleaner beam pattern. Conventional LED bulbs do not have this feature available which is why the diffuser mirror design is superior in output.
We are all accustomed to see conventional LED light output inside an assembly housing where the light is reflected onto the chrome background. The new diffuser mirror design has a similar design reflecting light but the light output is much greater. The angle the diffuser mirror reflects the light onto the housing reflector creates a concentrated and focused cut off line similar to projectors in headlights. Having a focused cut off beam will increase the visibility on the road as compared to conventional LED lights where output is spread unevenly. In the end, the high power LEDs are bright, conventional or not conventional; however, the concentrated cut off beam will definitely draw more future interests.
As car enthusiasts, we all take notice at the smaller details that you see on other vehicles on the road; for example, Audi’s and their revolutionary approach to LED daytime running lights as a strip underneath the headlights. Ever since that style of light was introduced into the market, all kinds of car enthusiasts have wanted to mimic this style of light for their own cars, whether it was an Audi or not.
Take for example, a customer of ours with a Mini Cooper decided that he wanted to obtain this look with our simple to install Audi Style LED strips. We offer a variety of LED strips in different sizes and styles which suit a large array of vehicles and applications. For most customers, the LED strip lights are placed underneath the headlight to imitate the Audi-style look, but our customer decided to try a different approach instead by placing it on top of his headlights; we think it still looks good.
These strips are easy to install with use of 3M Double-sided tape or silicone adhesive to almost every application. The power source used to light these strips up will be your choice; you get to wire these to any power source you wish the LED strip to be on with such as your parking lights, ignition wire (when the vehicle is on), and much more!

The famous Mercedes-Benz SLK350 roadster looks amazing without any modifications, but this particular car grabs attention with the additional ultra slim LED headlight strip for daytime running lights installed. I admit this add-on fits in perfectly right under the head lamps and appears to be very elegant. And having in mind this model has low ground clearance by default, the featured headlight LED strip makes it look visually closer to the road.
If you are fascinated with this Benz, I guess you’ll be happy to know that the very same Audi style LED strip kit is an universal fit product and the quality is untouched. With its 21 SMD LED lights per 20" / 50cm strip, one small upgrade can change the appearance of any car, truck or SUV for good. Thanks to the self-adhesive back, these LED strips are very easy to install right in between the gap of the headlight lamp and bumper, keeping them virtually unnoticeable when off. What’s more, this product is waterproof for worry-free exterior use and has flexible design with wide edge, so it could bend in almost any headlight shape.
To install, remove the ground from your battery before starting anything, so you don’t accidentally short-circuit something. Then take off the headlight lamp, clear the surface from dirt where the strip will be, align the LED strip and lay it onto the lamp. Make sure the entire LED Strip is hidden in between the headlight lamp and the bumper. Do the same with the other one and tap the negative wire of the LED strip lights to bare metal of the chassis. Finally, route the positive wire to a power source you want the strips to turn on with, such as your parking lights. Test if everything works and re-install everything back in place.
These eye-catching headlight LED strips will make any car more attractive, not just this Mercedes-Benz SLK350. Why paying for some very expensive lighting accessories when you can achieve such fancy look for just a few bucks? Don’t waste more time and check the iJDMTOY web store for more information about this amazing product.

However, we decided to show you this very good-looking installation and give you some tips how you can give your ride a better look without spending a lot of money on expensive accessories.
Each unmodified LED strip contains 21 pieces super bright SMD LED bulbs, but since it is cuttable every 3 LEDs, you can easily get the desired length. In this particular case, no cutting is required and the full length of the Audi Style LED strip is used to make great accent to the headlights. The installation is extremely easy, because the featured LED Headlight Decoration is self-adhesive and sticks firmly to both the headlights and fog lights. Each LED headlight strip is waterproof for worry-free exterior use and has flexible slim design with wide edge, so it could bend in almost any shape, as you can see from the photos.
Once you decide where to install the LED strips, make sure to find out how to run the wires and tap them to the 12V power source of the parking lights, so that they light up once you turn on the parking lights. When you finish with all LED strips, check for hanging wires and fix them with pigtails. Test if everything is working fine and get ready to amaze your friends with your brand new LED headlight decoration from iJDMTOY.
These LED headlight strips match perfectly the overall appearance of the featured wonderful 2004 Ford F-150 truck and it surely looks as good as it drives. Now you can get your car a fresh new European LED DRL look in no time for just a few bucks!
