Mercedes seems to be wholeheartedly supporting CarPlay. I think I read somewhere about the 2015 C-Class getting it. While the current LCI iDrive is a good attempt, it will probably be nowhere close...

I am just averaging 17.5 mpg on a 2014 535ix with 1800 miles. Though it is mainly city driving, I was expecting better.

Recommend f10?

I think all 2014 F10 models default to the last selected position for start- stop. I have a 2014 and it has this built in.

Recommend f10?

If you just want the best driving pleasure - get the A6.

I ended up going with the F10 LCI due to the beautiful styling... The A6 seems too bland to me.
