If that paint job is supposed to **** with your eyes so you struggle to tell what it is it does a damn good job

Commonly used these days Chris for exactly that reason and so you can’t tell 100% what it looks like with paint reflection and angles.
In this camo, I hate to say that this looks like a 7 series beemer- hope I’m wrong! Nothing wrong with the 7, just I prefer some individuality

2005 CL500.
That could be to do with the radiator blanking and the big piece of moulding along the front part of the bonnet...all disguising the newer shape.

The entire point of camo is to hide the shape/design of the car. it will look nothing like that.

Look at the AMG GT:

Got to look elsewhere for individuality then. The C, E and S look like copies, just in different sizes. Don’t like this new direction Mercedes are taking I’m afraid. Nor do I like the premium problems that come with their premium products these days.

Not sure why you think its a new thing? Mercedes have always made models that look similar.

The 204, 212 and 221 are quite distinctive. Quite hard to mistake them for anything else.

Bar the W212s split headlights, Look virtually the same to me (which is the point)

Better go and get your eyes checked sooner rather than later.

In what respect do you mean the same? Bumpers are different, lines are different, side profiles are different, wheels are different. The new ones use the same design even down to the wheels, apart from different sizes.

And from the rear they are not to be confused at all. From the rear on the new ones I have look at the width of the car to decide which one it is.

I think I’d chose a different colour, and probably ask if I could have the windscreen held in place by something other than duct tape. Maybe you need to buy the premium pack in order to be upgraded to glue.

Camo wrap. As mentioned it covers various bits and bobs that would otherwise be visually distinctive; it also covers bits of foam and other padding that significantly change a car's lines (eg high waistline).

Why no OEM offers it as a paint option I don't know ;)

It would look pretty cool even the missus liked it and she’s not a car lover as such
