Got the car today , your,re right , it does have keyless entry , had a good drive today , very impressive , only thing i have,nt sussed out is that the cruise control seems to go up in 5 mph increments , must be missing something , mercedes me took a bit to set up ,but got there in the end , i,m no bill gates when it comes to technogy , also found you have to watch your speed , pretty nippy !
Which model did you take delivery of?

There are two tensions in the wheel to alter the speed of cruise control.

Small push in either direction will increase/decrease by 1 mph and a larger push in either direction will adjust by 5 mph

Glad you got the car and still had the keyless entry feature… enjoy!

Not an option in the UK regardless

How is your 45 going now Silva? Has the lighting continued to work? I picked up on a UK Youtuber recently, goes by ABAuto, who has just had a 45 S delivered in the last couple of weeks, all of the bells and whistles on board. nothing missing as far as I can tell. I just found it interesting that a social media 'influencer' gets a fully cooked 45 S while the rest of us suffer a reduction in options, special treatment for perceived 'brand ambassadors' perhaps? 🤷‍♂️

I think I posted a link to that video and even commented he had puddle lights.

Doesn’t seem fair.

In terms of my experience, the ambient lighting failed on me on day 1 of taking the car back so I was rather disappointed! This along with some other issues I had gave me reason to have a good gripe at the dealer.

Promises were given and we were supposed to speak Friday just gone to discuss next steps. I’ve decided I want to keep the car as I’m loving it more each day. The lighting failure only happened that once and has been fine ever since so I’m monitoring that.

Hoping to get the AR nav and puddle lights retrofitted and then all will be as complete as it can be!

My brakes do still squeal however so I do want those looking at again.

My CLA250e has been pushed back until next year. The only information I have is the following:

"From 2021-12-31 to 2022-02-28 Factory Delay (unconfirmed build slot)"

Assuming I don't have a build slot yet and this is going to go well into next year! Not sure how much longer I can wait! I think I could have spec'd a MSO Mclaren and had it delivered by now, crazy waiting times for a Merc.

Good to hear that they are nice. As mine is through my company I don't have much choice other than to wait. Hopefully it isn't too much longer! 😩

I’ve never had the boot open on me.

If the car is locked and you press and hold the boot button in the key fob it does pop open. Are you leaving them in your jeans pocket and pressing it by accident maybe??

Thanks for answering mate , key stays in my jacket pocket , strange that it,s only happened the past 2 days , also noticed that the car seems to take a minute to boot up , as in radio does,nt come on and hey mercedes does,nt work , then all of a sudden everthings fine , doble bip on key has worked , but that sort of negates the keyless entry function ! i, ll keep an eye on it , just seems strange that it,s only just happened

Yeah it’s odd.

One of my neighbours had a BMW that kept doing that but he works for them and changes cars frequently so not an issue to him.

I’d be concerned if it keeps happening… I do think there are some strange electrical bugs in these cars which is a little worrying
