it’s not everyday a luxury car manufacturer decides to introduce a premium OEM accessory for their originally designed exterior components. keeping it simple however, mercedes-benz has announced ‘the illuminated star’, an option that uses light conductor and LED technology to brighten up the three-pointed central star in the radiator grille of some of the current GL-class, M-class, E-class and CLS models. although the add-on doesn’t work when driving, it lights up when the car is unlocked, its engine is turned off or its doors or trunk are opened – remaining on for 15 seconds.
