Hi folks, thanks for the welcome replies.
yeah, the heated seats may be a bit of a overkill, from your view of the world .....however our perception of hot vs cold is relative ...so after 40 degree C, days in Summer, when you get down to 5 degrees ..it feels **** cold. lol. ...but yeah, nothing compared to your neck-of-the-woods.
We've gone soft !!! ..paradise does that to ya' !!! ;-)
In OZ, the local distributor packaged options it specified "packs" ...the Seat Comfort pack included heated front seats ...so if you wanted the other features you got heated seats as part of the package.
Luckily, I have not worn said 'old budgie smugglers' for a long time
.....for fear of scaring small children and worrying the neighbours!!
....something one of our ex-PrimeMinisters should have done.!!
The AMG Line pack included all leather seating, so no dramas with a shocking outcome. Only nat-u-ral for this baby!!
Luv driving the GLC...I just look for a reason to go for a drive!!
Luv the sound system, luv the lack of noise in the cabin, luv the Linguatronic Voice control ..they need to widen the scope of what you can control ....pretty much limited to Media, Telephone, Radio and Nav functions. would be great if that was extended to Heating & A/C, and also selection of the other vehicle systems screens. ...maybe next model.
The only ...minor, negative I have is ..the harshness of the suspension. Only on large bumps..it appears to run out of travel real quick and thumps hard on the bump stops. I hold that, the run flat tyres are a large contributor to this.
When my current Bridgestone Dueller H/P ..wear out ...I will be fitting standard tyres. I carry a bottle of tyre repair goo and 12v compressor in the back, so should give similar or better options over run flats ...at least in OZ ....where 50kms ..is not very far ..at all.
Another thing, in Oz the cost of the run flat tyres were V E R Y expensive ..at time of delivery of my GLC, Feb '17, $700-$800 per tyre and availability was very limited. This has now improved somewhat ....some brands available, still quality at $350-$400, more ranges available at the $500 level. Even in the capital city tyre places though, stock on hand is not guaranteed. Out of the main cities it would be order and wait situation.
