I found a pristine one on Ebay , the seller said it was black but looked like mine in the picture on Ebay so I pulled the trigger. I received it and it was pristine, looked brand new. It came out of an E320. I compared it to mine, it was a bit darker but actually matches perfect with the interior of my car. Got lucky I guess.

I used goo gone and about a dozen q-tips to remove the tacky finish from my light switch. And it's still good to go. Goo Gone is much cheaper and easier then replacing the light switch.

Goo Gone didn't work for my switch, so I had to get a replacement. Replacing the switch is pretty simple, 5 minute job.

I'm wondering if those that said Goo Gone didn't work were expecting it to be a quick process. I'd expect to spend some time on something the size of the headlight switch panel.
