If some sits in the rear seat the headrest goes up. When they get out it does not go down by itself. Therefore....

I didn't know that either. How do you do it?

I know I can do it by holding my key in the lock position in the lock the cool thing is when I come back to the car and unlock it all teh windows go down to the same positions. I think you can hold down the button on the remote and do it, but I'm out of battery at the moment.

In NZ your weather allows you to ride with the windows down. In Bangkok I am either in the full A/C mode (sealed in) or I am in a show-off mood with the top down. No in between.

But it is interesting to know that by holding the lock down all the windows will close. Hmmm, I wonder why someone would lock his car with the windows down. Though I have locked my SLK with the top down. I don't know why.

Obviously, the least-used item in Corky's car is the owner's manual!!

Spare tire and trunk tools.

If you hold down the Lock or Unlock buttons on the key, windows and roof will go up or down, respectively.

Don't believe everything you think

I think its for those passangers that always seem to leave their windows down and then the key is turned off and they say, "wait my window is down"

Possibly the W/S switch or the the ESP switch?
Then again maybe the childlocks on the back doors?
But then again, I've owned three MBs with sunroofs and never used the manual open/close tool.
