The time line of the E-Class headlights

The evolution of the Mercedes-Benz headlights has been an interesting one to follow over the years. From the earliest Patent Wagon to the newly released 2016 E-Class, you can see below that the exciting innovation at the hands of Konrad Zuse (1910-1995) has really steered Mercedes in the right direction. Zuse was a German inventor who created the idea of a controllable lighting system in the car. Ultimately he is responsible for the ULTIBEAM LED headlamp with 84 single-drive high-power LEDs that is a key feature of the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class available on the market today.

Did you know that AustStar Motors offers a headlight buffering service for all Mercedes-Benz vehicles? It is a cost-effective way to brighten and restore the lenses like they were brand new. This service also serves as a great alternative to replacing the whole headlight itself! Call and enquire today!

I asked Aust Star Motors to do a thorough and careful job – and they did not disappoint. I took the car for a 30 kilometer drive after the service was done, and I was pleasantly surprised. The engine ran smoothly and quietly, idled well, and climbed hills effortlessly. There were no warning lights or unexpected surprises.  Overall I thought it ran better than it did before, despite a fairly major engine overhaul. The car was even washed when I picked it up, another pleasant surprise.
