I installed the illuminated star on my AMG.

Bought it on eBay 4 $260 and made my own harness - took about 2 hours total ???? ImageUploadedByMercedes CLA Forum1408795325.377838.jpg

Here's the link to the DIY install

I fed the wiring harness I fabricated through an opening on the extreme right of the radiator.

When you remove the original star you can get your hand and arm into the opening and reach all the way to the right - feed the wire harness from the engine bay and it will appear at the right hand end of the radiator.

I didn't remove the piece depicted in the picture.

how do they look during the day? are they pretty noticeable?

I've thought about getting it but knew I would want to black out the grill area on mine when it comes in.

It takes a little bit of force the first time removing the star.
