Only if you have subscribed to one of the services. Otherwise, it offers very little in my experience.

100% worth getting. A lot of my services if not all of them are free for 3 years.

I can confirm it’s not limited to AMG and Premium Plus. I got my A180 se 3 weeks ago and all’s free for three years (apart from smartphone integration and navigation services) I find it most useful in all fairness.

Thats interesting. Mine is A180D 2019 Premium and I had to pay to activate all the services for a year and will need to keep paying every year.

To give people that don’t know an idea of what’s on offer here are mine. Haven’t paid a penny for any of them.

Personally I feel that the whole principle of charging for these so called services is underhand and profiteering. I hadn't realised that there was a sliding scale of which services are included with various levels trim levels but I have a Premium Plus and most of the services I have are either of greater benefit to MB (all of the Safety & Service) than me or should be standard in any case on a premium brand car.

I believe that this whole con is predicated on the expectation that most 'owners' use lease plans to acquire their cars so the additional monthly cost for a 'service' is small but the accumulated value to MB is vast.

Just my view, as you can see I'm not a fan 😎

Love it or loathe it, this practice is here to stay. BMW are upping the ante by announcing they will be making certain car features eg heated seats, subscription-based. So if you like to keep your cars for a few years you could be paying substantial amounts.

The idea of course is that fitting the hardware to every vehicle then activating it only for those that want it, saves considerable amounts of money both on the production line and logistics. Fair enough, but it also gives some idea of the profit margins of these things.

Got all of them for free (AMG line premium) was a nice surprise as I was willing to pay for remote unlocking etc.
Just wish in car office actually showed up in my car now...

That's weird I have premium plus and have Office but none of the other Paid services such as unlocking.

Are any of these paid services supposed to be included on the Premium Plus?

Not a clue, I didn't know anyone got them free tbh. I was told I was being them as a courtesy along with a full tank of fuel. (which was another nice surprise, my last car had less than a mile of petrol in it when I collected it, wasn't happy lol.)
App has already saved my ass once though as it told me my door was open two days ago, and lo and behold I had left my drivers door wide open when getting my bits in from the care and not even realised like a tw*t.

I have a July 2020 amg line premium plus and got every available service for free, except for the £49 navigation services. All are either unlimited, or three years, except office which is one year. And 3/4 tank of petrol

I even got the navigation services free.
Service I really want is to use the camera as a dash cam. Would happily pay for that... Of only mercedes would allow it in the UK.

I have an A200. What is yours? I don't know if anyone else has the free nav, most seemed to have got what I have. The fup3 update adds a 'recordings' folder to your usb flash drive, which has us all wondering if dashcam may soon become an option. Also, in my mercedes fantasy land, no reason it couldn't include a rear dashcam on cars with the rear camera.

A200 premium. I was told I was given everything free as a courtesy.
I don't have fup3 yet (even though I was told mine was fully updated when I collected last week)
I truly hope they add it.
