Built in Garage door opener and rolling code garage doors

Anyone who ordered the built in garage door opener for their SLK and who has a rolling code garage door (like me) will find it does not work and Mercedes are not much help.

Their garage door operators only work with standard 433MHZ garage door openers so anyone with a more modern "rolling code" garage door opener (ie the code changes every time it is pressed for security) will find it will not work.

There is a solution however. You need to order a Universal receiver from

and add this to your garage door motor. It then works fine. Costs about 45 Euros.

What is everyone's experience with the range of the garage/gate opener. My is very weak [:(!] I practically have to be 15 ft. from the opener for it to work, this applies to both the gate and the garage. With the regular opener, I could be about 70 ft. away. The opener in the Suburban and the Lexus works so much better i.e. longer, much longer range than the MB. Another thing that bothers me is that once the car is off, the opener is off too! Any suggestion or idea to increase the range is greatly appreciated.
