New Member with 2 Benz

Just bought my first benz yesterday. I had one handed down to me so now I have 2 in the garage.

Growing up my parents had a 1961 Mercedes Benz SL 160 and a 1960 Mercedes Benz 300D along with more practical cars. They got rid of the 1960 300D and kept the 1961 SL 160 and did a complete restore on it with all the parts from Mercedes. That car has been handed down to me and is in excellent shape and a BLAST to drive.

Yesterday I traded in my 06 Lexus IS250 AWD for a 2008 C 300 4matic. So far all I can say is it rides smoother than the Lexus and in Ohio we got snow last night and it handled snow like a champ. Very satisfied with the purchase so far.

I do have a question about my new car though. It has the iPod cable in the glove box and when hooking my iPhone 4 with iOS 5.0.1 there is no way to control the music. Does anyone know if there is an update that needs to be done on the system for it to recognize it? Anyone else have the same issue?
