New from Cobra Technology & Lifestyle for the Mercedes M-Class: Cobra CITYGUARD® with LED Daytime Running Lights and Wheels up to 23 Inches in Diameter

May 06, 2009

Innovative and functional accessories are the specialty of Cobra Technology & Lifestyle ( With the new Cobra CITYGUARD® with integrated LED daytime running lights the German company lends the Mercedes-Benz M-Class a more striking appearance. But that’s not all: The type-approved accessory also improves active safety. Further highlights are custom-tailored light-alloy wheels with diameters of up to 23 inches, a front guard with EG operating certificate and rocker panel guards with integrated steps.

Daytime running lights improve driving safety but aftermarket installations are often difficult or even impossible. For the Mercedes M-Class Cobra Technology & Lifestyle now offers a stunning and functional easy-to-install solution. The Cobra CITYGUARD® front guard is made from high-gloss stainless steel and attaches to the underside of the production front bumper. It features integrated daytime running lights on either side. The high-intensity LEDs make the Mercedes stand out in traffic much more so than the production version. The guard also protects the front apron from minor collision damages. The guard comes with an EG type certificate which eliminates the need for costly and time-consuming technical inspections.

M-Class owners looking for an uncompromising rugged off-road appearance can choose the Cobra Technology & Lifestyle high-gloss stainless-steel front guard with a tube diameter of 60 millimeters. Thanks to its flexible mount the guard passes all required crash tests with flying colors and meets the tough criteria for receiving an EG type certificate. The front guard is designed to carry auxiliary high beams which are available in a ready-to-install set.

The sides of the M-Class can be refined and protected with Cobra Technology & Lifestyle accessories as well. The stainless-steel rocker panel guards have a tube diameter of 80 millimeters and feature an integrated step for easier entering and exiting of the vehicle.

In cooperation with technology partner Excentric Cobra Technology & Lifestyle offers an extensive lineup of custom-tailored tire/wheel combinations for the 4x4 Mercedes. Customers can choose from wheels with diameters ranging from 17 to 23 inches.

The absolute highlight of the program is the Cobra Truck light-alloy wheel in size 11Jx23. These wheels feature eight double spokes and are available painted silver or black, with a high-gloss polished stainless-steel drop center. They are fitted with high-performance tires in size 315/25 R 23.

For upgrading the interior Cobra Technology & Lifestyle offers stainless-steel scuff plate covers with illuminated Cobra Technology & Lifestyle logo.

The exceptional quality of all Cobra Technology & Lifestyle accessory components is documented by a two-year warranty with unlimited kilometers.
