Looks like S class. Have to get used to the look though.

Do they have a 15" wheel option in Europe too? I like the S-Class's lights, just not on this car.

LOL. It's really funny. I get so many stares at the freakin' LED's, some people have stopped in their tracks, etc. They look cool, and I'm happy to have them on the car, but I don't get what the big "LED" crazy is with everyone. I guess it's simply our obsession with evolving technology, etc.

The new LED's look much classier and more "OEM"/fitting with the Luxury version of the car, and the hockey sticks look more appropriate and charismatic on the Sports. Now that M-B is putting the straight LED's on all their cars (even the new W204 C-Classes, it's nice that the E-Classes have their own LED design.

Although it's a bummer all 2011+'s will get them, so there goes the "rare" factor of only the P2's having them. It's a legal thing in the EU now (all cars must have daytime LED's), however, there much be some way M-B could match the yellow halogens on the P1 cars with the hyper white/blue LED's? Makes for a funky look.

Those wheels are 16s.

The 2011's on the local dealers' lot have quad oval, p1' s and p2's.

Not sure if I'm reading that right; you're saying the 2011 models you've seen have the dual fog-lights? From what I've gathered, all 2011's will have the LED's (Sport Package cars), even ones with P1 and the halogen light bulbs on top of them.

Not a fan of the current LED style, its shape looks like a frowning smiley with an attitude. Kinda out of place for the elegant E!

This new simpler design is much better imho!

I saw a 2011 S212 E350 4 Matic Wagon with those LED lights in the U.S.. I think it is the non-Sport package lights when you have P2.

I think the new LED:s looks good in marketing pictures but not so very good IRL.
