The BMW M550 was the first production car to support wireless CarPlay so you were in on the ground floor. Plus you have a Qi wireless charging mat so you're golden. I have a strong suspicion all MBUX vehicles will support wireless CarPlay but it would be nice if MB would put that in print. Harman Kardon makes all of their head end units and they announced some time ago they will be supporting it.

'16 GLE400 and a '18 M550i (19 E63s expected mid May, hopefully)
We do not have the wireless charging mat. When we ordered ours it was a part of some some option package we did not want. The wireless carplay option is nice and a little easier in the car, but we do not use it. The interface with BMW is easier and better when playing our music through it. I use carplay in my MB but only because it is easier to use Pandora that way. Ultimately I do not like carplay and I hope the new MBUX is be better and I don’t have to use carplay nor android auto (once I get rid of my iPhone and go back to android).

I agree with you. The issue with CPlay & AAuto are the way they interface. They are separate from the rest of the system and are only better when the base system isn’t good. Switching back and forth is a pain. The Nav and search functions with Android are so good that I put up with it.

MBUX could be the answer but it may take a while to mature. The Technology Platform was co developed with Luxoft. I saw a news feed that Soundhound is developing the in-car voice assistant . (Hope that meant has developed) https://techcrunch.com/2018/09/14/me...ice-assistant/
Then throw in Nvidia, Harmon, Nuance Communications and you have at least 6 companies involved. Google and Apple have years head-start and lots of expertise. MBUX sounds great but will it live up to the hype?

2018 GLE 43 SUV
Our lease ends in November. We were told M-Financial are only doing 3 month lease extensions.
W167's are expected to be released "Spring 2019" which could mean anywhere between March - June.
Our sales person has been working with us since July and kept a look out for a 2019 W166 with the packages/options we wanted.
They finally received info of the batch of 2019 W166 my dealership were receiving and not one had the color/packages/options combos we wanted and after a few weeks, they ultimately weren't able to find one that fits us via dealer swaps because the other dealerships we're showing "No Call" meaning they are not willing to swap and they already have deposits on the ones we would like.
They had a P3 2018 GLE 43 on their floor and I never even considered a P3 GLE43 because quite frankly, we couldn't afford it.
The General Manager knew of us and knew our sales person has been working with us for 3 months and became sympathetic to our situation. With a bit of negotiating, our sales person was able to get us a VERY good price on the P3 2018 GLE 43.
This will be our first AMG. Picking it up Wednesday.

This is one reason I don't lease - you are locked into a timetable that may not be ideal in the end. Plus, hard to make mods. Good outcome for you - same engine you would have had in the 2019 with a bit more power - enjoy!

There are definitely pros and cons for leasing. Being locked into a timetable and unable to mod is definitely a con. But a pro, it enables us to drive a vehicle that we wouldn't be able to afford if we were purchasing.

I'm waiting for the reviews (likely a few more months away). They often provide the finer details you wouldn't know about until you actually see and drive the new GLE yourself.

2016 GLE 350d
I haven't been on this site in ages. On my fourth Mercedes a 2016 GLE 350d that I've had for almost 30 months. Flawless, zero issues and has only been at dealer for scheduled maintenance. I will put an order in for the new gen GLE 450 and hopefully it will be available by next spring/early summer. I love the redesign and new tech. Only thing I will miss is the range and economy of my current diesel. Four tanks in a row this summer were all over 1,100 km each. Sure beats the 2012 ML 550 I had although I do miss that sweet V8 turbo power sometimes. Hopefully the new inline six 450 version will be somewhere between the two.

What is the MPG for 1,100 km a tank? I'm thinking about 34 MPG.

Thanks

For fans of Google Maps, it's now available in CarPlay if you updated to iOS 12:

say 690 mi / 25 gal = 27.6. I can get that with my gas V6 if I stick to 55, but just canít do that. Get 20 mpg at about 75 avg.

25 gal? I don't know about you but I don't run my tank to bone dry. I've averaged 27.2 mpg since new and that is calculated on fuelly, not the car computer. This summer most tanks 30 mpg. The computer in the GLE is 10% optimistic (I've been tracking that for 10 years on multiple Mercedes models, also on fuelly). My driving is a combination of city stop and go, busy highway commuting to work (a lot of stop and go) and some country road driving - lots of stop signs, etc. In comparison to my ML 550 the actually fuel cost per year for same distance is half with the diesel GLE. Do I care about fuel cost, no. My annual fuel bill for two cars is covered by less than one day at work. Do I love RANGE and not having to stop and fill up every week? Absolutely. The new GLE only has a 80 liter tank, compared to 93 currently. That is disappointing to me.

That being said I am putting a deposit today on a 2020 GLE 450 with these options...

MPP - Premium package
CMP - Comfort package
MTP - Tech package
MSP - Sport package
IDP - Intelligent drive package

490 e-active body control
489 airmatic
597 windshield heater
550 trailer hitch
NO running boards!!
26U remote start now standard!!!!!

Paint – 859 Mojave Silver
Textured Leather - 284 truffle brown
Trim – H22 open pore walnut
Headliner – 51U

W167 Canada preliminary ordering guide

Good information, though obviously some standard equipment and packages in countries other than Canada will be different. A few things I noticed:

- At least one option has "Delayed until 01/2019 prod." noted - this means production must start by end of 2018
- AMG Styling (Sport) Package has 20" rims as standard, not 22" - as I theorized. 21" listed as optional, but not 22"; I'm guessing 22s will be available in US - we like our bling!
- Airmatic & E-Active Body Control listed as separate individual options (latter requires Airmatic and Premium & Intelligent Drive packages)
- Is ARTICO just a different name for MB-Tex, or a different product?
- Standard paint colors: Black, Polar White; Metallic paint colors: Obsidian Black, Iridium Silver, Mojave Silver, Canvasite Blue, Brilliant Blue (03/2019), Selenite Gray, Emerald Green; Designo: Diamond White, Hyacinth Red
- Three open pore wood trims are available (glad they are getting away from the high-gloss plasticky wood)
