    Oil change is pretty easy indeed

    To give credit where it is due: Given a vacuum extractor, the oil change is pretty easy indeed.
    The large oil capacity and long oc change interval is also good.

    One minor annoyance: I wish the command key "turn" ring had assignable functionality. Currently there is 2 ways to do the same type of action, ie "next" or revious" . You can either tilt the command key, or turn the ring.

    By default I woudl rather have the "turn the ring" function adjust the audio volume. If I have my hand on the command key, it would be nice to just turn the ring and adjust the volume without taking my hand off the key and
    having to reach for the buttons on the steering wheel, which requires a brief glance.

    If they're now selling Sonatas for half the price, I'll take two.
    I took European Delivery and drove through four countries in my limited edition Universe Blue CLA 250.

    Well ... yes and no ... its also nav zoom menu item select etc ... all that while pressing the volume buttons (which will be like touch typing after a while and can keep both hands while pulling 1g and cranking up back in black for the mood )
    If the rotate function can be assigned then sure enough one will have to toggle between the various modes just to use it and per murphy it will not be in nav zoom mode just when you need it to get out of a fire fight cuz its in volume mode despite the nav screen being up
    UNLESS its in volume mode only for radio / music but then item and option selects will require a mode toggle
    Think I will leave mine alone

    Now all that said ... am trying to make global voice command accept other stuff like pop pano close pano etc since those switch signals are intercepted by a sam anyway

    ... firm ... not so firm ... medium ... soft
    sounds like a mattress commercial
    but the newer adjustable dampers may cover some of the suspension range you might want
