S63 & s550 storage is different as explained here https://mbworld.org/forums/new-s-cla...ml#post6255866 – 550 storage is limited because of battery placement.

This is a great benefit to all owners. Thank you!
Have you seen any bulletins on long and medium range radar malfunctions related to Distronic? Do you know if these (I assume Bosch) chip sets can be re-flashed / corrected?
