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!

Having originally been introduced to Theo and Andrew in the mid-90’s, I have continued to use them for the 4 Mercedes vehicles owned in that time, 3 of which were purchased through Theo. 

They have always been easy to deal with, honest and open when discussing issues that have arisen (or may be about to arise).  In that time they have serviced those vehicles through over 500,000 kilometres! I will be continuing to use and recommend Theo, Andrew, Michael and the team for many years to come.
