Is that because they have to disassemble before crossing the pond and reassemble here?
I did the spaccer.com lift from Germany. It took about 2 weeks to get here. I went with 36 mm (three spaccers) and 1 set rubber grommets, Total lift approx 2". Tires added another inch. Rides really nice.Looks really good. Same spacers as the others on this post or did you find something new for the Metris?
I think Greenmanedlion is referring to this post from the "tires- PREMATURE WEAR -outer edge" thread.It isn't really stealth technology, as it is old hat. Once MB adopts a technology, it becomes the standard for their fleet. Every model introduced since this unit came out has been equipped with this tech. For MB to drop a technology, it means either something superior replaced it, or (as with sensotronic braking) they ****** up. So they don't talk about it because... well, it's a Mercedes, of course it has it.
They also don't advertise this in particular because too many would misunderstand it. It is not a self driving technology, it is an anti-fatigue system, designed to save drivers from the fatigue caused by countless minor course corrections the car now does for you. My hands off the wheel suggestion was just for you to discover just how straight it tracks and that the system I am referring to exists.
Rotate every 4K ain’t in the factory requirements booklet.
The MB Electromechanical steering system is actually very complicated. Take your car to a straight away, empty of traffic, accelerate to 50, and remove your hands from the wheel. You will notice that the car tracks completely straight, adhering to the road crown, and even sometimes following that crown around slight curves.
This is partially the suspension, and partially the steering system actively tracking the road and keeping the car straight. It is actually making tiny corrections to follow a straight line. I wouldn’t trust this fully, because all it is doing is responding to passive stimuli like the road crown and light side winds, and it shuts off after a time of not detecting pressure on wheel (I.e. you holding it), but when you align the suspension, that system needs calibration.
