A couple of questions on options,

1. is the adaptive suspension a good idea? Heard it hangs low
2. is the extra 12.3 display necessary or is it just for useless info
3. seats, is the leather on the basic seats (no upgrade) good or should I at least go with the Nappa leather. It's a $5K upgrade for Nappa and a frameless mirror ??? and a few other things I don't understand like a Danamica Headliner

thanks much, I think I have 3 days to make final changes.

1. The adaptive suspension is like dcc in a vw or like ads in the other Mercedes models. Essentially it dampens the road based on the setting. In comfort mode it isolates you more from the road, in sport it gives you more of a sporty dampening feel and is supposed to circumvent body roll a bit.
I think itís worth it at this price point.

2 the extra 12.3 is the screen where the instrument cluster is. Without it you get analog gauges. With it you get digital gauges and a screen to show nav music etc.

3 you should really feel the leather and the samples they have. The s class is the one usually specd with nappa so you should ask your dealer to compare the two. Itís really subjective imo.

1. Get the adaptive suspension for sure. It gives you ride options
2. Get the screen for sure. It bring the dash up into the late 2000s
3. In my view, the only interior choice is the 800 series. Yes, its 10% more in overall cost, but it dramatically changes the interior look and feel. The standard and 500 series appear cheap and MB Tex (ish) to me

Good luck, you'll love it. We have 4 Gwagons

the dash screen is a must .. makes the whole cockpit look much more modern and really looks like you cheaped out or clueless on spec imho if you dont get it.
