Hey folks, I'm planning to go on a long vacation abroad and won't be using the car for ~2 months. Any specific advise (e.g. fuel level to leave at?) on how I should leave the car so that I have the least trouble getting it back on when I come back?

I'll be using a dedicated indoors parking, so weather wear-and-tear is sorted.

2 months will be fine - battery may need a boost when starting again (unless you can leave it on a trickle charger?).

I would also inflate the tyres to their maximum recommended pressures as otherwise you could come back to indented tyres.

Also disarm keyless entry (double click clock button on the key) as this uses battery when activated.

I gave my old A220 back about 2 and a half months again but I still got it connected to my Mercedes Me. They haven’t used the car at all in that time but the battery has been on critically low for about a month a half but it hasn’t died yet. So in terms of battery it should be fine.

I'd be tempted to stand across from the show room and when they're showing the car to someone, start playing silly buggers and triggering things.

Useful to know, thanks.
