The euro light is a very precisely focused pattern.

At the left of centerline of the light is a sharp cutoff on the horizontal and the light steps up at a 15 degree angle to the right.

The recent MBs do utilize this pattern. The only difference is that euro specs call for the cutoff to be three inches lower than the centerline of the headlight when the car is 25 feet away from a wall. The US MBs are aimed so that the drop is only 2.1 inches.
