New addition to the stable

Hey guys, Just picked up an E500 4matic. The CLS gets parked for the winter, so this will make a nice DD. I bought it sight unseen, and it turned out to be loaded. Distronic, shades, parktronic, dynamic, ect. The only thing it's missing is voice control and panoramic sunroof.

Drove it 100 miles today, (daily commute) has anybody tried to boost the pressure of the power steering?

Distronic and parktronic seem to be rare.
Enjoy new ride.
I don't think I would miss panoramic roof.
The only time we open sunroof, is once a year, while cruising Las Vegas Strip.
Otherwise we drive fast and open roof makes terrible noise.
That said, for my winter project I bought convertible, but plan to drive that one slowly.

Parktronic is more common than Distronic. I have it on both my cars. I like the pano roof too. Mine has voice control too but I never use it, I think the last time I tried to use it, it might actually be broken, it did work once about 2 years ago.

I never used voice control when I had it either, except to surprise unsuspecting passengers by telling the car to do something and having it obey. That was fun.

I don't use the sunroof I have now, so I don't care about panoramic.

Now if I could fix the heavy feel of the steering wheel I'd be all set
