The manual subject had tons of topics on the forum already. While MBUSA supplies free digital manuals for 10 years -there are lot of other sites that have them as well. Not always factory manual, but they work. Do a forum search starting in General section.

The hill holding is not described in manual neither. I was stunned to discover it after years of driving.
W211 has a "Hidden gems" topic. Maybe we should start one here as well?
The Heineken should go inside cooled compartment.

It would be nice if you could still cool that compartment with the heater on,so you could still have a cold drink in winter.

When I spend time in Japan during the summer, they serve Sake cold, and with a side of raw eel, you're doing Kabuki on your head singing old Cher songs.

Stop it.

It doesn't have hill hold. Your car has a problem. In W my car holds on a hill, in S it creeps forwards, whereas yours goes backwards.
:D

If hill holding is a problem >>> I want them more. :D
My car rolls backward only when I switch it to S mode. It is fun to let the car roll, or stop with the flip of a switch. Will sure like it on next trip to the City.

In my car the fun comes from standing still on a hill in W or moving forward by flicking to S...:D

Anti-gravity issue: How did the white truck get a big dent on the right side?

This is the city street with lower angle so trucks can drive. Where I live some neighbors have 80-90% driveways. Used to own a house where entering the driveway lower cars would hit the pavement with bumper before the wheels would get the incline.
Wow. Your car will hold on an 80% hill...just, wow! Respect!
