    No, BMW lights only turn their beams around bend. Ancient old technology. Mercedes offers something truly unique, something that justifies the use of word "adaptive".

    I need to check at home, but I remember pics and renderings of the new lights also adjusting their height relatively to the car going up or downhill and also adjusting their power to the traffic conditions.

    Not according to traffic condition, but according to speed. Higher the speed, higher the beam.

    My uncle has them in the Audi and I don't miss them on the Bimmer.

    I think you are getting a bit aspirational though...

    I don't really care much for the headlights that dim automatically. Thats dead boring, frankly, and also just an example of the modern car taking away even the most simple of jobs away from the driver, which in the long run isn't a good thing I don't think.

    An evolutionary step. I'm not liking everything I see, but there are many wonderful aspects of the car. The interior styling may not be that great (a bit too blocky & angular) but it looks like they've upped the ante in the comfort department.

    The new Mercedes-Benz E-Class: Efficient, intelligent, emotionally appealing
    Stuttgart


    Dec 13, 2012

    Stuttgart With new, efficient engines, new assistance systems and a new design idiom, Mercedes-Benz has comprehensively modernised the E-Class to extend its leading position in the luxury segment even further. In both the Saloon and Estate models no less than eleven new or optimised assistance systems from the future S-Class celebrate their world premiere. They combine a host of comfort and safety features, all of which Mercedes-Benz refers to as "intelligent drive". They include systems which for the first time can help to prevent accidents with crossing vehicles or pedestrians, active Lane Keeping Assist which can help to prevent accidents with oncoming traffic, or anti-glare continuous high-beam headlamps. As such Mercedes-Benz is underscoring its leading position as a safety pioneer. The new E-Class makes a significant step forward when it comes to efficiency and ecology too. This comes courtesy of new, powerful BlueDIRECT four-cylinder petrol engines featuring sophisticated direct injection technology. This powerful development boost is reflected to exciting effect in the design of the E-Class. With its new design the E-Class encapsulates efficiency, intelligence and emotional appeal in a visually superior manner.
    Mercedes-Benz has revised all of the model series of the E-Class more
    comprehensively than ever before, to make the latest technical advances available in practice at an early stage. This is why it even makes advance use of developments from the future S-Class. In addition, the new E-Class offers a considerably sharpened design with a cultivated, elegantly sporty look, as well as significantly enhanced comfort, high-quality appointments, efficiency and driving pleasure. As a result, the E-Class is continuing to consolidate its leading position in the luxury class.................etc
