I suppose I'm so used to the memory seat adjustment by holding the button until the seat fully adjusts that I didn't realize it's been changed for the 2019 model year.

From the owner's manual for the 2019 Model E:

"Press memory button M together with one of preset position buttons 1, 2 or 3. An acoustic signal sounds. The settings are stored.

To call up: press or briefly hold preset position button 1, 2 or 3. The front seat, the steering column, the Head-up Display and the outside mirror move to the stored position."


I'd like to clarify that the above would lead you to believe you need to press the M and a preset button at the very same time. You don't have to push them together. You can press M, then one of the 3 presets and you'll hear the beep indicating the memory is stored.

I think the question revolves around being able to press quickly an already preset seat memory function. Press 1 and have it adjust versus press and hold.

Yes and by posting what I posted, it says you just have to briefly hold the button and the seat will adjust. My final comment only clarifies you don't need to push the M and Seat Position button at the very same time to program a memory position.

even though annoying, i think one good part about holding the button is you never know when u might need it to stop moving... ? like crushing someone or something lol

Coincidentally I discovered today that I have to hold the button untill the end of the movement while driving. Only when stationary a brief press without hold is required.

Makes sense, because imagine you pressed a setting that would push you all the way back and you cant reach the brake or gas, now that would be frightening!

The reverse is also true - push a button and be crushed by the steering wheel. (I drive with the seat all the way back and wish for more driver leg room.)

The trunk lid and windows already have auto-stop safety features. Why not the front seats? Press and release memory seat movement and fully functioning entry/exit convenience, when the car is not in motion, are worth it IMO.

And to those who celebrate it, Happy Thanksgiving. 🍗

2019 E53 it is NOT necessary to hold the memory seat button. Just press and release and the seat moves to the programmed position.
