Massage Seat on the GL

Does anyone know if the Gl's come with both front row seats with the massage function or just the driver side seat? trying to justify paying $1200 for it.

Oh, I guess another question - package 399 multi-contour seats yes are both front seats - the same/both seats for MB feature.

If you were actually deep into details on this feature - the question you would be asking is "what are comfort headrests" ?

please enlighten us on this "new" feature. glad to hear package 339 is both seats
how does the multi contour front seat work, I tried the massaging seat and it was absoloutly useless, tried it in the S class as well and it was equally useless.
I would suggest you ask a long distance trucker the prupose of "massage seats" in a vehicle seat - the "value" of this feature is entirely dependent on how much time you are planning to spend in your vehicle, and the importance of this feature to you based on the longer trips you plan to take...

Actually the Mercedes multi-contour is a very effective system in accomplishing what it's intended for as measured by similar features offered by competitors in their luxury SUV's....competitive price and now a very clear and effective control system..

Standard for GL550's, optional for GL450 and GL350, about a 30% resale recovery on this feature 4 yrs out on a $1200 investment.. which is not terribly bad recovery for what it is..
cancelled the option on my build order, out of a scale of 1 to 10 I would give it a 0.5, its very gimmicky.. 1200 makes no difference to me if it lived up to all the hype the dealers are giving about the seats
I totally agree after test driving the S & GL class with this feature. It's not meant to be a buzzing karate chop type of feeling. it's purpose is to slowly keep your spine position moving so you don't get fatigued on long distance, multi-hour drives. If you don't do 4+ hour trips then it's probably not for you but a very welcome feature if you do along with the ventilated seats.
I did order the ventilated seats as on my last GL I would have a damp back after driving for 2 hours
Well that was a interesting comment - "cancelled the option on my build order". If the order was changeable then canceling the option fortunately does not affect scheduled production date.

This year Vance has frozen production orders quite farther out this year - if your "build order" was changeable then your production slot for a 350BT would be 3rd decade December or January.

Good luck to you !

I was told yesterday and today that I should take delivery end of February to mid March... and yes I was also told that that they could not actually put the order through yet. might be till beginning of next month when the order goes through.
