Factory remote start is by the app only. Check out Mid-City Engineering if you want remote start from the key/fob.

The Mid-City Engineering keyfob option works well. I had one installed in a 2010 E350 and loved it! I guess this is why I'm so disappointed with the GLS mobile app version.

Not sure about the ‘18’s, but my ‘13 only parallel parks (but still worth it).

I attempted a rear-in perpendicular park with my my ‘17 GLE, and it didn’t quite succeed. I need to try it again. Initial position of the car at the start of the auto parking maneuver is important.

My vehicle parallel auto-parks reliably and easily.

How were you able to do that? Is there a separate sequence? I want to make sure my ‘13 doesn’t have it.

I drove in parking lot and when the arrow came up on the dash it then asked if I want to park and showed the spot. I will take a picture and a video when I can.

Question tire pressures GLS 450

Can anyone advise what is the optimal tire pressure for comfort and handling? The door post sticker shows F/R 44 and 47 psi which i am currently using, but i find the steering a bit vague at low speeds. Thanks for your help.

So far I have successfully auto-parked with three scenarios:

- parallel park on right (passenger's side NA/EU)
- parallel park on left (driver's side NA/EU)
- perpendicular park, front of vehicle facing outwards

Smooth and trouble free. It takes the user (driver) some learning. Once learned, the feature is very good. 2017 W166 GLE350W4.

A gaggle of MB's
Recommended tire pressures are located INSIDE FUEL FILLER DOOR - for SUV's I set front and back same pressure.

For GLS450 I ask my techs to set 38 PSI - which my customers seem to like/drive=feel and also higher the pressure (over let's say 34) better the overall trea life.

Pressures inside driver's door frame for manuf ref only - and WAY TOO HARSH at those pressures - same with PSI on the actual tire itself
