It is shown on page 122 of that document.
No that display can not be changed. Stuck with Celsius.

Can the additional menu that you access by hitting reset 3 times be enabled all the time? I like how you can see the volts in the MFD as well as the other toys like basically enabling track mode.
Also from another screenshot I saw on this thread, there was mention of a trunk release, what is that?

Also, also,
I have a 2005 SLK350 with everything I know of except the sport package. Other than the true "M" mode, what else can I get enabled? I was thinking the both rear fog light option, I do use them occasionally on early morning commutes in Pittsburgh, and nobody here knows what 1 small bright red light means (at least they see it! but they think something is burnt out on the other side)
The gallons remaining would be cool, and the dumb rotational tire pressure would be cool as well. Once that is enabled, can you turn it off easily?

Also from another screenshot I saw on this thread, there was mention of a trunk release, what is that? - The one on the key, possibly

I wanted to post a HUGE thank you to "mchild"! He remembered that I live in the Pittsburgh PA area and reached out to me on Christmas weekend since he was going to be in the area and brought his setup. I drove and met him and he spent some of his time on my car and enabled several items for me.
Both rear fog lights
Gallons in tank (I have no idea why that is not on by default)
Runflat (Smart/Dumb tire pressure monitor)

The main thing I really wanted was to get "M" mode enabled and I think we were missing a step, and I certainly can't fault him on it because he has a 6sp manual SLK, not an area he was used to poking around in.

Apparently something needs enabled in the "Central Gateway (CGW) & Electronic Selector Module (ESM)" We could not find the setting in one of them (I don't recall right now) and did enable that part. I think the issue might be that we needed to enable/add the 428 code, got me.
Anyway, the main reason I am posting is to give a big "Thank You" to "mchild" for going out of his way to contact me, and offer his time.

Glad I could help. I'm working on figuring out why my system did not provide the screen we were looking for to do the switch on of the M mode. Even if I don't get that resolved, I am fairly sure I have a work around. Once I have that confirmed I will let you know and we can see if there is any chance we can get together again.

Sounds good, thanks again. I may look for a wheel or components in the mean time.

Reading through the postings I am right with a UK car the lower display cannot be changed from kph to mph and the only way is to set the car up as though it is Euopean which I assume would cause problems.

Such a shame that MB interpreted the EU rules thus. The (Opel) / Vauxhall Insignia in the UK has a MPH dial but the digital speed display can be switched between MPH and KPH by the driver.

You are right that, for a R171 in the UK, the default (MB OEM) behaviour is for the lower MFD to be fixed at displaying km/h.

However, if this is changed using STAR (which I believe does involve it being set-up as though it's a car from elsewhere in Europe), then this can be switched... I leave my lower MFD displaying outside temp by default now. I can also switch my main speedo (and the lower MFD with it) between displaying mph and km/h (there's an indicator in the middle of the speedo that switches to indicate which is being displayed).

As far as I am aware, there's no downside to this change - everything else on my car continues to function as it should.
