I finally took my car to dealership to fix
the headlight and to my suprise they replaced the whole assy.. It is supposed to a sealed unit, so any moisture would mean that it had a leak. The heated seat also stopped working, well just the bottom part, the back still worked. They had to replace the whole bottom leather surface. Now I have one very new looking driver seat and a used Passenger seat.

Hehe...at least you got your problems fixed...

BTW, is Azure Blue the one more like SLK Blue?? I was so sure about it, but after I look through dealer's color charts, I am confused.

I know there are many blue, the midnight-blue, and azure blue..etc.

I saw a Blue S600 Coupe, with black/grey leather....very nice....

We have had some problems with the E Class (210) headlight assemblies leaking water in them and always replace the whole assemblies. There was also a modification on the front parking lights, because they were melting the bulb holders causing they bulb light indicator to come on all the time. If they changed out 1 of your headlight assemblies, then make sure the other headlight has been modified. They will fix it under warranty. This affected 1996 through early 1998 E Class cars (210). As for the seat heater, there are 2 heating grids in the seats, seat back and seat bottom. The grids are built into the leather bottoms. Thats why you only got that portion replaced. Hope this helps you out!

The Azure Blue is something like a metalic blue, I had heard that they stop making that color in 1998. I have never seen another one like mine. I've seen a E320 once in that color, But never a sport. Does anyone know how to be able tell if the modification has been done to the front parking lights...?

Just look through MBUSA's site. They have Royal Indigo, and Midnight Blue. I thought Midnight Blue is something close to dark?? But on the site, the Midnight Blue is actually like Azure Blue(or what I think is Azure Blue)??
