Just rarer, not a shortage I think. Blame is on the dealers, not Mercedes-Benz.

For example, most of the GLKs and MLs out there don't have Bi-Xenons because you have to spec the lighting package. Most dealers just open P1/P2 and not the lighting package. Same with the E. Most dealers spec them with P1, not P2 (which includes Bi-Xenons)

It's pretty sad because the X5 and the F10 seem to come standard with Bi-Xenons these days.
