2015 S-550
BeanTrader, thanks for info. My steering wheel has never turned 10 degrees. I can barely feel it moving. Something is definitely wrong with my car.

2015 S-550
Wolfman -- I like the ECO/Start/Stop when it works. The system was smoother on my S-400, but the S-550 is OK, when it works. I have driven other cars with start/stop and some were like paint shakers when the engine restarted. Not my cup of tea...

Mine also works in a very seamless sort of way. The month of February has been brutally cold here in IA so the ECO mode was very rarely green. My gas mileage has sucked due to the cold as well.

Yea, remember they used oxygenated gas for the winter and that makes mileage crappy. Looking forward to summer gas.

2015 S-550
On the 2015 S-550 they also did away with the yellow and green status lights, so I never know what to expect when the car comes to a stop. The green light first comes on when the engine stops --duhhh. I don't need a green light for that. I want yellow and green status lights to know what to expect, like on the 2014 S-550 and on my 2010 S-400.

I actually like the Sport Styling better than the standard looks. That makes it the 2nd Mercedes-Benz I like only with the Sport Package, right next to the CLS

Iphone App to control rear S550 Functions?

The back and forth is annoying indeed and believe me I'll try my best to not engage in it (though sometimes it's not easy at all). MBWorld is a great place with massive amounts of info. I indeed spend countless hours on these message boards and do feel/hope they count for something, however I and I'm sure many others have saved tens of thousands of dollars with the info armed from places like this as for where to get deals on cars or parts, deals people are getting, "tricks of the trade", ways around your car, etc. I even got my current car from the owner/founder of a message board much like MBWorld and got a deal and treatment alone that's worth the price of all my posts spent on these boards. Definitely give it a chance. It's one thing to come here and talk cars, but once you narrow in on a car, the info and help you can attain for that particular car can be priceless.



I appreciate that and I also appreciate members like yourself who can set aside any previous "differences" and be objective/appreciate about positives people can provide rather than just stubbornly focusing in on the negatives (which is all too easy, especially on the internet, which in turns piles on more and more vitriol already so prevalent on the internet). It shows great respect and intelligence.

And spot on, on the last part. Discussing members is something that a thread shouldn't detract to. I'm here to talk cars and can do it till I turn blue. Leave the wars to Twitter and the like.

And back to the W222:

Here's a new Test Drive/Review:
2014 Mercedes Benz S500 S-Class W222 Review / testdrive / Test - YouTube
At 4:42 they show an IPhone app with the ability to control the Rear Functions instead of the Remotes. Anyone know where to get this app?

They sometime show things that may be part of future updates that are never done just to show possibilities...
