Take a look at this picture I found for a 2011 E350. Notice how there is an illuminated ring around the seat control. Is this a new feature for 2011? I don't recall seeing that on the 2010 model we test drove.

Our ordered 2011 E350 has an ETA 12/11.....the waiting is eating me up.

Hmm, I dunno if mine has that. I don't think it's specific to 2010 or 2011 models though. I do think that mine has an illumination coming from around or under the seat controls though?

My 2010 E350 doesn't have the illuminated ring around the seat control shown in your photo.

I just looked at one of the "official release" pics from when M-B first introduced the 2010's via promotional pictures, and it indeed does have that ring. Is it a Euro thing maybe??

I want to say that I don't think I have it. I'll know tonight. Looks like they skimped that little thing out on us Americans? That would suck.

My 2010 has it. I think all W212s have this feature.....some of us just don't notice it till we look for it. There is a light behind the door handle too.

here i took a pic with my phone.

OK, yeah, I have that, now that I see it with the light on it's very familiar.

Thank you all for the confirmation. Sometimes it's these little things that make a Mercedes a Mercedes.

A lot of these "new" features were on the Mercedes S class already on prior year models and they have made it now to the E class.
Distronic plus cruise control and night vision and contour seat button lighting on the controls are just a few and there are many more to list.
The contour lighting inside the car on the doors and dash makes the 2010 E Mercedes the luxary automobile it is. There are a lot of cars that bring you from point A to B but it is the fine details that makes you drive in style and comfort.
