My R350 is about to go out of warranty, 49,850 miles , and I have replaced the headlights and tailights. All under warranty but I have 2 other MB and never replaced one light. don't want this to continue. Any ideas?

    I found on the r350 tail lights that an oxide forms on the stationary contacts, sometimes. gently scraping the affected surface fixes that...careful if contacts are electrically hot!
