RE: Mercedes Dilemma
Hey sorry I love them ventilated seats! In summertime and on long trips it's just awesome. You never stick to your seats. Okay, I'm sticky. Or if you prefer, okay, I drive in the nude. Whatever. [8D]
Got to thinking, I misnamed the thread, it's not really a Mercedes dilemma. It's a car dilemma, or US-only purchase dilemma, whatever. (The Euro would be a solution but they're v.difficult to import.)
Because I bought a new Ford truck and had to get the optional guzzler engine in order to get the options I needed. Yes NEEDED!
Spent (all right, wasted) an hour or so last night trying to find a W220 with ventilated seats that wasn't a V12. Not a one. Whereas I think all the S600s had it. But I wouldn't drive an S600 across the country unless I owned more oil company stock.
About rear-seat A/C, I said "electronic" meaning the controls with digital display. Sorry I think it's cool!
108 Please don't jump on me for looking at W220s!
I was just looking, honest! [:0]
