I agree its too big. I think Mercedes used to have a keycard. I wonder why they don't use that anymore. Maybe they found people didn't like it.

With comfort access I never have to take it out of my pocket. If they made it credit card sized I could just keep it in my wallet all the time.

An occasional push is not a problem. The break-in period means basically don't drive it like a race car for the first 1000 miles. But even that is done all the time and I've never heard of any real...

You can see the blue lights behind the kidney grills. And that first car looked like an F10.

Seconded. I would wait at least a couple of years. I've actually never updated any of my cars. But I probably don't rely on nav as much as some people.
