comment How to determine if a Mercedes key is original?
Lots of info about how the smart keys work (and why they can't be reprogrammed after pairing to a car) here: benzworld.org/forums/w210-e-class/…

comment How to determine if a Mercedes key is original?
The keys use the same unlocking mechanism but the new styles of keys are different (and much nicer). If you buy a new key you'll get the new style. Mercedes keys don't need any hardware to be accociated, you just plug it into your car. However I've heard you're SOL if it's a used key, as they can only be programmed once.

comment New headlight lenses?
Do they actually sell the lenses separately or would the whole fixture need replacing? Looks like the whole fixture for my car is easily $150 per light (mercedes not subaru).

comment Does repeated turning on/off Xenon HID headlights harm them?
These are factory installed so I'm sure they're installed properly, just concerned about the longevity. The car's six years old but I'm not sure if the lights have been replaced.
