MB cheaps out!!
I know this is the 6 series board..I've been posting for the last 2 years, but I recently found out something that I thought was amazing. My partner and I went in to a Merceedes dealership to look at an E class. Do you know that leather is not standard on this $50K car!!! You have to order it as a $1,400 option. Pretty cheap if you ask me.... That's why I stick with the best, BMW.
Additionally, the salesman was impressed while showing us how you plug this 9" long dongle into the armreast so that you can use Bluetooth. I said "C'mon BMW has been doing this for years and nothing is visible or needs to be plugged in"

Re: MB cheaps out!!
I have to add something. While I am driving a 650 now and love BMWs..The very best Mercedes I ever owned did not have Leather..It had MB TEX. In the 10 years I owned that 300D, Not one person could tell it was not leather and after 10 years, it looked like the day it left the showroom...MB Quality has gonr down alot over the last few years, But MB TEX is one of the better materials out there.

Re: MB and Bluetooth
Before I purchased my 650i, I was seriously considering the SL500. The lack of BT was a sticking point for me, so I asked the dealership about MB's future plans for BT. I was told that "MB considers BT to be outgoing technology. We will never offer BT in our vehicles." Then, a month or so ago, I read about MB's BT accessory that you referenced. Interesting how the party line shifted...
