Good info mate.
"S is for "standard" not too sure about that. I've always read it and heard it as sports, comfort and manual. recently an amg spokes person said C was for rain and snowy conditions. Although I tried it in snow with chains and it was useless with esp on in C mode. anyhow,
gear changes are 30% faster than C and [M] has 50% faster gear changes. Although I couldn't ever get used to red line limit in manual so I still use S mode on the track.
I'd miss the twin centre box. I dont have a phone and use the upper panel for things i need quick access to all the time and the lower big bin for less essential items. I love the twin direction opening and think its a bad move if this has changed.
Also manual will drop gears if in high gears at low speed. I.e 7th at below 40.
Never new the fan speed changed at varying speeds. wonder if that is a new thing.
How long did you get on pick-up. also is this optional. ould you take it away for a months drive round the alpes?
The shipping company said 7-8 weeks, but I think it's more like "when the US pulls out if Iraq.":tu: In2dww - Thanks for the interesting information on the updated changes to the late model 2007s. I admire those that take EDP. It would be a wonderful experience even without picking up a new SLK, but that makes it the BEST! One day, I'll have more time. What is the estimated arrival date of your new SLK 55?
