Just to further clarify, I have my old unit which is in perfect working order except the plastic front lens. As such, I can swap over all of the control modules connected to the unit.
My main worry is ending up with a light I cannot use just because the sticker has veen removed with the LED...
The two parts are identical (same part numbers).
as such, I would expect the ballast to simply come off my existing unit (which works perfectly and is simply suffering with a cracked lens), and go onto the new identical unit.
The fact that the ballast does what you suggest above is fine...
I have recently alas hit a deer with my car which cracked my headlight lens. Such is life.
I have purchased one recently from Ebay and the LED code for coding the lamp is not there to my horror (and was removed since the ad images).
In this instance, I am refitting my existing...
Hey mate - firstly welcome - great cars and I love mine.
not sure about a formal register but I recall it being 2002 from memory.
I compiled a load of information and links which I published on this website. I will dig out a link for you.
sorry for long wait for reply - thanks for the feedback - I did read similar for the c classes but I am not sure that his extends to the S class.
since the above post I managed to test drive another s class from my local dealer and to be fair it was similar to mine so I concluded...
To be fair it is more nuanced than that,
the sound is not significant and joy at high speeds and does not sound like it is coming from the roof itself - more the top of the doors.

i have recently bought an S350 on 66 plate which has a pan roof.
long story short, one of the pan roof seals was loose so was replaced under warranty By supplying Mercedes dealer. the works require the removal of the roof and reinstall (Just the bit that moves)
since then, i am...
Thanks guys - that is a shame
Toi be fair, the electronic interfaces on all cars tend to be the weak link so I wont bother spending any further time on it.
As to why - well because its there was best answer!!!!!!
I wonder if I am the only one suffering this.
My car is a 66 plate S350 and connects to Internet via my Samsung s9+.
The Internet connects the car fine via Bluetooth or USB, and in both cases the very few Internet apps (ie weather and radio) work fine.
However, if I try to use the...
ahhh the good old days of warranty repairs!
To be fair I think mine had a replacement control unit and main sensor (the one behind the grille) back when it was still under warranty but that was some time ago.
The rest of the system (blind spot assist etc) all stays working fine...
Hiya - no they are not - and moreover they are regularly erratic in where they occur (I live n the Westcountry, so there are no real sources that could reasonably explain them, and they also occur in places where they have not occurred in the past).
Also, as an aside, mine is a very early W212...
