I have C200K Estate, 2005 UK model with bi-xenon headlamps and the
cornering light function which activates the appropriate fog-lamp when
cornering at slow speeds. Twice now, Mr Plod has stopped me and asked
why I have one fog lamp switched on after they saw me driving slowly
around a corner.
I explain how the function works and that the car is UK spec. No
tickets issued yet (!), but a comment from one of them about him
"having to check the construction and use regulations".
Any thoughts? Are these fog-lamp cornering lights actually illegal in
the UK? Why does Mercedes provide this option for UK use?
