These things (Ford Mondeo in this case). You see them quite often on Audis, Lexuses and a few others. The next Golf will have them too. Also the Peugeot 308, if you pay enough.
Richard Porter of Top Gear, Grand Tour and Sniff Petrol fame doesn’t like them.
“Sitting at a junction behind another car this morning I discover something horrifying about this Peugeot. The front indicators do that irritating sequential trace-a-line-then-off thing made fashionable by Audi. It’s a tedious gimmick which further investigation reveals to be something they fit only to sporty 308s for some reason. But really there’s no need for such wankery.”
