It's available on the http://jesmb.de/ site, but sadly any attempt to download / embeed the pics anywhere leads to an error.

More pics are available here though: http://blog.mercedes-benz-passion.com/







Basically the choice of standard halogen, halogen/led mix and full led headlamp (quite frequent nowadays for BMW / Audi / MB, albeit it might me the first time there is no Xenon headlamp available)

I wonder if I'm the only one who likes the standard headlamp the most - it looks the least overstyed and fussy (it's the same story with other MB's too.)

I think the second one is LED/Xenon. Agreed, standard is the nicest, and that's how the all LED one should look (basically it looks upside down now)

I thought I'd be the only one who preferred the standard headlamp! I agree it looks less fussy. I think my main problem with the uplevel headlamps are the central LED strip - it visually conflicts with the upper edge of the headlight and adds to the fussiness IMO.

I thought that too, but the site says:

Links: Serie
Mitte: High Performance LED (1029 EUR)
Rechts: LED Intelligent Light System (1725 EUR)

It also looks quite similiar to the last one, minus the LED projector for the high beams. It also apparently do not have headlamp washers, which are required for Xenon headlamps (but apparently not for LEDs).

that makes no sense. LED's are much cooler than Xenon, and therefore would require the headlight washers to remove snow/ice. either way, none of these seem to show headlight washers

Xenons require head lamp washers, because their light is very concentrated, and dirt thus could deflect it so that oncoming drivers are blinded (well, at least that'S why they have to come as standrad on xenons). LEds do seem to have a more veen distribution, so probably that's why cars don't need head lamp washers (IMO the Seat Leon with LEDs also doesn't automatically come with washers)
