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!

As an enthusiast and collector of classic Mercedes I tend to be fastidious when it comes to the care and servicing of my cars. As a businessman, I have a keen eye for value. What I seek therefore is that special and rare combination of experience, resources, advice and top-level service at a price point that allows me to give proper care to my classics without breaking the bank. For over 15 years, I have found that combination at Aust-Star Motors. Classic cars require special knowledge and care, which AustStar delivers in abundance. Their advice is exceptionally valuable and I have greatly appreciated their guidance when making acquisitions. Most important however is their genuine enthusiasm for and deep knowledge of Mercedes vehicles. I have never posed a question they could not answer, they have always sourced every part I have needed and they have found solutions to my every service need. AustStar motors really is Babylon for classic Mercedes and I won’t take mine anywhere else!
