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 have been taking my collection of new and classic Mercedes Benz to Theo Anthony for service and restoration purposes since 1988. During this period of 27 years my family have owned over twenty six cars and have bought several from AustStar. I have always received very satisfactory service and customer care from Theo and his team who have also been invaluable in sourcing hard to find parts for my classics.
