GLS 550
Smile Special Order Options

We started an order for a new GLS 550 and have uncovered the ability to add "Special Order Items"

The things I have added are:
  • Code 892 - Lockable Rear Compartment
  • Code U09 - MB-Tex Wrapped Lower Dashboard
  • Code 293 - Rear Side Airbags
  • Code 58U - Crystal Grey Headliner
  • Code P21 - Air Ionization with Air Filter
These items are not listed on the MB website and my dealer didn't give us a full list of Special Order Items. Does anyone have the complete list or where I can find it?

I found the above items by searching new inventories and discovered them on built vehicles.

Thanks a bunch.

2017 GLS 550 & 2016 SLK300
Those are only listed in dealer system I believe. On our GLS550 we have all but the lower wrapped dashboard as it included with the designo interior and headliner as it’s white fuzzy material without choice to change.

They are simply an extra goodies list that only the dealers have, my guess is that they are not always available and as such they leave them off the "public" list. The dealer showed it to me when making my order, I passed on all of them despite ordering almost everything else. Another one not on your list is the second seat passthrough, kind of odd for an SUV with seats that fold down in a variety of configurations. Just FYI the rear seat airbags is a gimmick (no one has proven they increase protection in the rear seat) as is the "fragrance" dispenser, furthermore, all MB cars have cabin air filtration. The gray headliner might look good on a black interior which might otherwise be very boring.

I think there is also an extra $250 "SPC" charge if you select any of those items. Me personally, I would do the MB-Tex lower wrapped dash.

Well....

!st - headliner color choice is exactly that - color headliner choices (two) for whichever interior you select - it is a required choice in the build menu in Netstar.

SBC options - yes - there is a single $250 charge to add one (or all) of the SBC options - that added charge does not show on the build but will show on the final factory invoice/window sticket.

U09 - luxury wrapped MB-Tex dash and door panels can be factory availability limited

Air Ionization is NOT fragrance it is added ionization "fliter" in the system

Competent salesperson can go thru the full build list for you to confirm compatibility

Rear side airbags are NOT recommended for car seats or small children in the 2nd row seat - teens and adults up are OK - not switchable off

Thanks fabbrisd1. We were on the fence about the wrapped MB-Tex, as we were not sure it would be a match with the leather seats.

Thanks. I was concerned as having never seen it, but we will have the dealer put it on the build. The build date is anticipated for late Feb.

There's also the 'U29' 'big brake' code, but i've never been able to determine how you would acquire it, since it's not part of any package nor listed as an orderable option over here.
