Hi - I picked up my A180 cdi Sporton March 1st. Very nice car although I wish I had gone for a few extras - I thought reversing sensors would be standard.When I lock/unlock the car the horn bleeps - can I switch this off if so how? Also when driving every now and then a loud tone occurs - is this to do with the anti collision thing? Any help appreciated.

you can turn off the horn beep in the settings menu, i think its called audible lock. If the loud tone is the collision warning you should get a red triangle appear on the dash.

Sensors not standard but dealer can fit for about £180 I think,
You can turn off horn when locking, scroll through the menu on the wheel, its under convenience
And lastly if you are driving say round a corner too tight the laser picks up things like a lamp post and makes tone noise and a red light on dash
Hoe this helps

Thanks folks - JBraddick has just about resolved all the above - My dealer has quoted £299 for the sensors so maybe I'll have to shop around. Thanks.

I fitted reversing sensors and reversing camera to AMG Sport my self took about 2 hours and only cost £59.00 for both. Its easy to do as long as you dont mind taking a drill to your back bumper.
