Derezzed The buttons on the door layed out like the front passenger seat are a very neat touch. I bet each button controls the specific region of the seat. 12th June 2013
TheStig Yeah Of course! It has thrown a fair bit of tantrums. Its actually at the workshop now! The latest tantrum is in the form of a stuck gear lever. I had to put a hell lot of force to get it from P to D.
Anyway it has been sorted out. And got a very beautiful invoice :D

DicKy Nice w220 in there @STIG, but have to agree with flyingspur that its 5A/T, not 4A/T,maybe the 5th cog may not work in manual mode(ma guess).
BTW, read that it's one of the most unreliable s class ever made. Any problem with yours.

TheStig Hey thanks!

But there is a catch. There is a manual mode to shift gears and when it is in manual mode, the gear I am currently in is displayed just below the tachometer.

It only shows 4 gears! 4th is the top gear.
When i auto mode it shows D (Drive)- S or C (S for sport and C for comfort)

flyingspur By the way, I'm quite sure yours is a 5-speed auto and not a 4-speed one. AFAIK the W220 never came with a 4-speed auto, not even the pre-facelift. 27th September 2010
flyingspur One of the most elegant S-Classes ever !! Nice car... 27th September 2010
