Comfort Box...

Hey Guys,

I noticed that the 2014 E-Class is not outfitted (standard in 2012) with the manual bag hooks in the trunk that could be used to hook plastic bags. If I had known that I would have seriously considered the Comfort Box! What are you all using to prevent bags etc. from moving around in the trunk if you don't have the Comfort Box? Are the Comfort Boxes able to be placed post production?

Len

The bag hooks can be added on on the 2014. Do a search for the parts.

FWIW, my salesman told me the Comfort Box can also be added after the fact.

Comfort box is always an option. You can order it from your dealer.

Thanks.

I guess I'm old fashioned! I use the boxes I get from Costco or Sams, since that's where I normally go, and I keep a few around when I do go grocery shopping.

That said, with the trunk tray in the W211, I've not had any issues with anything sliding around.

Thanks Vai, I was going to ask what other options were available. I fail to understand how MB could NOT have a basic standard option for bags. I'm not a fan of the box, but didn't realize that there was no other option to secure simple bags etc.

Dwight,

from the sound of things -- it looks like MB cut several corners to keep the 2014 E class similarly priced to last year -- a trend they've been good at for a few years now.

The bag hook parts run around $150 .. consider this a corner cut to keep the price "competitive"

apparently they also left out the styrofoam cover that goes on top of the spare wheel in the trunk but below the trunk mat, had it on my 2013 and it was useful because it had compartments. Trying to figure out if the 2013 part will fit on the 2014

The little bag hook is VERY inexpensive and simple to install ... see my post here:
