There is no keyless go.

Parktronic with electronic parking assist is an option:

MBUSA.com said:
As you drive by parallel parking spaces, Active Parking Assist helps you size them up via sensors in the bumper. Once you decide to back into a spot, it can expertly steer and brake the car for you. When it's time to go, it can even steer you back out. In any low-speed maneuver, PARKTRONIC's ultrasonic sensors in the front and rear bumpers help detect nearby objects within its field of view. Audible signals and illuminated displays in the cabin help you navigate tight spaces with confidence.

Mogwal, were you asking about the parking distance sensors for the Parktronic (automatic parallel parking) feature or just the more basic feature of the beeping sound when backing and approaching an obstacle?

Well from what I know from my visit at the AMG headquarters in Affalterbach; they didn't even plan on including keyless go at all, and did even make it electronically compatible supposedly.

Well all I know for sure is that they'll be tons of "beeps" aka swears coming out of your mouth if you hit something, and if you hit them then theres gonna be quite a few beeps/swears coming from them also:haha:

Keyless entry is a no cost standard feature on even the 250. Check out the MB website folks. Its all right there in plain English: Mercedes-Benz - Home of C, E, S, CLS, CL, SLK, SL, R, GLK, M, GL, G Class

Click "Safety" and scroll down to "SmartKey." Here's the description:

SmartKey

The SmartKey remote control integrates remote door locks and trunk opener, a removable valet key, and a remote panic alarm. Selective unlocking lets you unlock only the driver's door and fuel filler, or both doors plus the trunk and fuel filler.

I don't get it. So do we get something similair to keyless or not? (Not really thinking right now since I'm tired and barely slept thats why I need some explaination lol). Plus even if we don't then I can live without all that stuff.

Keyless entry and keyless go are two different things.

- Every car made in the past 10 years has probably had keyless entry. It's a fob. Press the button on the fob to unlock the car. Press a button to lock it. Press a button to open the trunk. Press the red panic button if you can't find your car in the Nordstrom's parking lot. Press another button (on some fobs) to light up the car at night.

- Keyless go is getting into the car and pressing a button on the dash to start/stop the engine. In recent Volvos you actually have to stick the fob into the dash before you can push the button. It's a silly waste of time but it has been better implemented in TONS of other cars. Regardless, keyless go is NOT something currently available on the CLA. If you want the engine in your CLA to turn on you're actually going to have to stick your key into the ignition and turn it. {gasp} "the horror"

In short...
Want to get in the car? Fob.
Want to start the car? Key.

Ahhhh alright so I can open/close the doors then just like in my GTI. Just cant start the engine without putting the key in. Oh well I think I'll actually prefer putting the key in because then I won't have to worry about the key falling into some hard to reach spot lol (happened to me once. Took me 10 minutes to get it out)

sigh. this is the biggest disappointment ever. i know it doesn't sound like much, but there have been times where Keyless has saved me from locking my keys in the trunk. I hope the rest of the car will make up for this...

Please re-read this thread.

Keyless GO = No.
Keyless ENTRY = Yes.

I'm not sure how a keyless ignition somehow saved you from locking your keys in the trunk but I'd love to hear the story. :crazy:

Probably talking about keyless go having saved from locking their keys in the trunk. I did this once in my BMW. There's a sensor in the trunk and if the car is locked with the key closed inside the lights flash and the trunk pops itself back open. At first when it happened I thought something was broken. Then I found my key was inside and I was definitely happy the car was smarter than I was :)

Keyless Go = Keyless Ignition
