Starting to wonder if it may be a design difference of the lens, with the right side covering more road shoulder and left concentration more on road ahead..
Interesting thought! My old Euro lights that had been on the car were each nice and sharp ___/____/ with no difference between right and left cut-offs. The old lights were off of an MB grey market car, and had the MB logo and part numbers stamped on everything along with the Hella logos and part numbers. Likewise the DOT lights on my 98C230 - their low beams are ___/___/ with no difference between left and right side. Maybe it is unique to the 500E loghts? Anyway, I sent the photo to Paul and he agrees that it is blurry and with a hot spot, and thinks it is unusual. It will be interesting to see what the new light does when it gets here.
