I choose to think of it as a very unique design feature, rather than "lopsided and ugly!" After all, any lame-brained designer can achieve symmetry.

I doubt very much that anyone but us obsessive MB fanatics would even notice.

I, too, would like to hear the rationale for this feature. No doubt it comes down to safety, just like the rationale for the band-style outside door handles, ribbed rear light lenses, etc.
