As is the case with the S Class and the GL, the C from Mercedes will also receive the LED driving lamps treatment.

According to some scans from an upcoming brochure, the changes will be minimal. Just a few changes to the fog lamps and I assume the LED’s will only be offered with vehicles with the Bi-Xenon option.

I suppose its a sad day when the addition of LED’s to golfs become newsworthy, but news on the automotive front have been a bit dull this week.

Anyway, for those who care the new Golf R is going to have LED taillights like the ones pictured above offered as standard and the GTI and GTD will have it offered as a R3500 option. Why can’t they just include it in the price and add it anyway? Well they’ll make more money this way is the obvious answer.

The benefits of using LED’s are they last longer and illuminate quicker – 0.2 seconds quicker than conventional bulbs in fact.

All this means that people will see you hitting the brakes a fifth of a second quicker, shaving a full 5 meters off the braking distance from 100km/h.

Plus they look cool.
