I think you're both right, but since the 1990 S class, Lexus, Toyota, and Honda (even Ford and pre-DCX Chrysler) have all been taking, whatever styling cues MB uses and adding them to their own designs. They slanted tail lights you see in mlfun's honda started with the S class in 1990. You can't find a car with that slant before then. It sucks to be an original, get copied by the world, then accused of being like everyone else. As long as MB is considered a mark of quality, it will always be copied. Of course, as we see from our own post, MB needs to step up to that mark or it will soon not have this problem.
