Hi Dave,
Happy to help you with the TSA, what specs/packages did your GLC come with and what year is it ?

Hi again,
I have build date June 2017 GLC 250D, Selenite Grey, options of AMG line, head up display/sunroof, Upgraded Burmister command system and seat comfort package. Sadly mine model did not come with integrated apple car play,
By any chance have you replaced your tyres? I have scorpion verdi run flats 20 inch (48000 KLM) I am considering replacing them with standard tyres and purchasing a spare tyre.
Hi Dave,
Sounds like you have a really nice GLC, Ive got a C200 in selenite grey and sometimes wish i ordered the selenite grey in my GLC and not black. Does your GLC have distronic plus ?
Also mine didnt come with apple car play thats something that i installed myself with command knob controls.
I haven't replaced my tyres yet, they are due this year but with covid and sydney lockdowns its something that has been delayed. Car was serviced earlier this year and was told they are something to look at this year. still have my factory tyres on it, Ive just done 42,000km recently also.

if there's anything i can help with or questions just let me know.

Hey
Lockdowns? what are they!! I'm in Western Australia so we do not have lock downs, just saw Melbourne cases looks like it is also out of control over there also.
Yes my GLC has Distronic plus, lane keeping radar cruise control etc...
How did you activate speed limit display?
re: tyres one of my main reasons for wanting to change to normal tyres is the "harsh" ride on 20 inch wheels also if in the middle of no where with a flat run flat could end up being extremely expensive.
HAHA lucky you, im climbing the walls over here and looking forward to getting back to some sort of normal soon.
If you have distronic plus you will be able to activate traffic sign assist. i used software to unlock it as when i picked up mine from the dealership the option was greyed out in settings and after its first 1000km check in service the option had disappeared from the menu. I can help you with unlocking it if you are interested by sending you a copy.

Yeah thats not a bad idea with changing over the tyres, when i replace mine i will change them over to normal tyres most likely. the ride is a little harsh at times.

I am definitely interested, do you unlock it via the OBD port?
Apart from the first service after 12 months I do not go back to Mercedes to service my car TOO Expensive
so if I add anything it will not get deleted when it has a service.
yeah its a software update via the OBD port, if for what ever reason you need to take the car back to Mercedes for anything say a safety recall update or something they will most likely delete it again but when you get home you can just do the update again and it will work again.

Those AMG puddle lights really effective
thanks, i do really love them. at night they show up really well on the 360 camera to give you a little extra "buffer" guide when parking in or around tight spaces. Its a big help in the garage at night too.
