Question Questions about some features/options

I'm about to place an order for a MY14 ML350 but had a few questions:

1) USB port - I've read numerous posts about the USB port and charging. Is there a special MB cable or do I use the standard Apple cable? Am I correct in the USB port will charge a iPod while connected but not a iPhone?

2) Ambient Lighting option - can the brightness/intensity be adjusted?

3) Prepaid Star Service - if I purchase this option at one dealer, do I have the option of having my vehicle maint performed at any other MB dealer? Which option (1, 2, 3, 4 or 5) is the best value?

My USB port charges my iPhone 5 using the standard cable.
Ambient lighting intensity can be adjusted.

Yes maintenance at any dealer. I purchased 3 service pack, it was somewhere around 750$. Seemed like the best deal out of them all.

And if you lease, the service pack is built into it, so you only pay a percentage of the cost.

A gaggle of MB's
Please understand the service pack can be programmed into the lease - is not automatically included - and yes, since the cost of the service pack cost is "residualized" - yes, in essence your real cost that you "pay" is about 1/2.

FWIW, you cannot get a prorated refund on unused portion of plan like extended warranties (I guess leases are different), but they are transferable to another owner.
