  1. For me, practical uses for Park Assist would be parallel parking only if I feel the space is insufficient w my own parking skills but the system thinks otherwise or a head in perpendicular parking in a relatively tight spot. In the latter case I would usually give the spot a miss since I wouldn't want to leave a scratch/dent in tight spots. There's really few scenarios I'd be using this feature in my case..
  2. Ok just checked w my SA and he says my version does come with the latest active parking feature. I am curious to know if anyone here upgraded to the latest distronic option?
  3. My SA did not mention Active Parking and i assumed it is an optional feature in the C&C e-class. My W205 has the auto park feature and yes it requires human intervention with gear shift.. Truth is, in the last 3 years, I have only used it once just to see that it works.. IMO the C-Class is an awfully easy car to park. What I do know that comes with the E200 is 360 deg camera, that one is pretty good to avoid those nasty curbs on Singapore roads.
  4. Nice. This is the 2019 model with the black emblem. Did your SE say the steering wheel is also from 2019 model? I was hoping it would be one w silver dials instead..
  5. Interesting that I did not pick that up with the steering wheel position when test driving. Am driving w205 for 3 years now and getting used to the compact interior.. not sure if Id feel this gap when the new car arrives. Is yours a C&C car and does the burnester rotary tweeter affect warranty? It looks cool just not sure how much it improves sound quality and concerns over warranty..
  6. Congrats. Nice choice of color. I know the 2019 ver comes w new steering wheel. And i supposed E250 comes w staggered wheels, do make some pics to share
  7. Aliexpress sells the widescreen cockpit but Chinese version only it seems.. Installation of the digital cockpit can be diy'ed if the English/International version can be sourced.
  8. Nice! Looks like the brows on the front headlamps for the GT R, A and CLA are all getting the same fierce look.
  9. Stock MOE RFT from C&C staggered setup for 2.5yrs now with 40K, still have some life on both front tires. Had to change the rear set few months back due to a nail into the edge of sidewall.. So far, the stock RF's have been pretty acceptable to me..
  10. Anyone here tried to diy the TPU clear protective film from Taobao? Does it affect the appearance of the center panel and does it peel after parking in the sun? Thanks
  11. Very nice!. Love the rotary tweeters any time. TMall sells the same stuff, just not sure of quality and who to install in SG.. Eyeing for my E class but will have to check how warranty will be affect w C&C
  12. 40k km, 2.5yo W205. Always hovers around 7 - 8l/100km never above 8. 18" 5 spoke AMG staggered and switch between Caltex and SPC RON95. 75% highway
  13. Turn off A/C about 3-5mins before destination. A habit cultivated after my W205 returns a foul smell few months short of its 2nd year. A chemical cleaning by C&C clears the stench perfectly and till now the car has absolutely no foul smell whatsoever. Thats how I am convinced a minor adjustment of habit helps with this problem,, What is the reason behind your question though?
  14. Thanks Joecamel, yes this is more to ease the manual polishing work. I am thinking to try out cheap palm held models than invest too much at the risk of turning into a white elephant.
  15. As soon as I get the complimentary floormat from C&C (i believe its called the 3D floor mat), I just place them over the stock floor mats from day one. Not sure if that makes sense at all but the 3D keeps visible debris from reaching the surface beneath. What do you folks do otherwise with these many car mats?
