You are more likely to die from Whirlpool dryers (500,000), premature death from diesel emissions (38,000 per year), climate change (WHO estimate an additional 250,000), get your car delivered, way before Brexit is sorted! :p



(While looking up the numbers above, I came across this...
The ONS publish mortality numbers, in the UK, 141,313 deaths in 2017 were considered "avoidable mortality". Thats 23% of all deaths in the UK in 2017, were avoidable (on a clinical/health basis). Thats quite depressing. Those numbers do not include suicides (6507 in 2018).)

I'm still waiting to get word from the dealers but suspect I may have to wait until after the first wave of orders to get 12% off, but it's difficult doing deals with a +7hrs time difference. Back from the beach next week. I certainly will be pissed off with the the morons in government, and those voting for it, if there is a brexit tariff applied.

There was even a yellow aero A45 in the carpark here at the Hard Rock Hotel in Penang. But he had a mirror grill. I didn't get to look at the gear lever so wonder if it was just badged with A45.

Received this yesterday for those interested.
Have enquired why Heads Up Display isn’t listed and am awaiting reply.

Wonder what extended MBUX is? :plain::plain:

Was wondering the same. The head-up display is normally in a package called AMG Advanced Navigation which also includes the augmented reality stuff etc., so maybe it could be that? Not sure.

I don’t think HUD is to do with MBUX as it displays info from driver display such as speed etc

Seems like it's classed in the same area as it - https://media.daimler.com/marsMediaSite/en/instance/ko/MBUX-Mercedes-Benz-User-Experience-Unrivalled-experience-for-the-user.xhtml?oid=32997837


Modular structure: MBUX functions
The MBUX functions are modular in structure, so that the precise needs of different customers and markets can be met. They are based on three pillars:

  • Basic variant: As standard this has two 7-inch (17.78 cm) displays for the instrument cluster and media display with a touchscreen, multifunction sport steering wheel with touch control buttons on the left and right, a USB interface (Type C), Bluetooth® connection for telephony and audio sources.
  • Extended version: As standard this has extended MBUX functions including personalisation, a predictive function and theme worlds, a wifi hotspot.
  • Larger media display (10.25-inch/26 cm). The extended MBUX functions can be ordered in addition.
At extra cost, customers opting for the extended version or the larger instrument cluster are able to order e.g. a touchpad, HD navigation (including three years of Live Traffic, Car-to-X communication and map updates), a head-up display and a Burmester® surround sound system.
Other navigation-specific optional equipment such as augmented reality, Traffic Sign Assist and navigation services can be ordered on top.

It would be good if they said what was in the Plus Pack. It's purely got a price against it.

I’m pretty sure it’s a feature that allows you to lock the keys in the car and send something to someone else’s phone that enables them to unlock it.

I’m pretty sure it does show differences between the Plus and non Plus in the brochure.
