I have owned 3 ML's prior to getting our new GLE two weeks ago. Every ML had the lighting package built in to equipment options by the dealer. That is how they ordered the vehicles. The new GLE has a stand alone option of LED lights, a $1,300 option. Very few vehicles have been ordered by the dealerships with this option. I just assumed ( not a good idea) that MB would be using Xenons as a standard. NOT TRUE. They chose to equip their GLE's with a very inferior headlight, one that can be found on any entry level car. I cannot see too well with these headlights and I'm 59 yrs old. I took it in to the dealership to get the muffler whine taken care of and asked one of the chief mechanics about the headlights. He said there wasn't an easy solution. He also noted that that a lot of people have been complaining and that he himself is having problems with night driving while in this vehicle. Is any other members of this forum having difficulties with night driving with these headlights? What opinions do you have about how MB chose to equip the GLE with this lighting system?
