11. One has the im­pres­sion of

cor­ner knots in this view, but in

fact the cut line be­tween lamp

dip from cant rail down to

roof sur­face is ex­actly—but

Their each ap­pli­ca­tion ex­e­cu­tion varies at Mercedes, with

some­times sharp or with a

crease or soft like this.

14. The hor­i­zon­tal bars be­hind

the main grille are repli­cated at

the same pitch in the cor­ner

in­lets. They are un­ob­tru­sive

here but a bit too present

above in the real car.
