The second floor console came as an option with the car. It sits on top of the DVD player, and snaps into a bracket mounted to the floor of the car. I am not sure how much that option costs...I think the website listes all options and their costs.

Yes they do, but I always have to double check because I have found that sometimes it is not all the way clicked in when their little hands do the snap. Because the second row seat is folded down to the floor, I use it sometimes as a "bench" to sit on as I strap them in or get them set up with video, etc.
#652 of 697 R 320 CDI or R 350?

Does anyone have any details on the R 320 CDI? Do you go with the diesel or the R350? Will the R320 CDI get a fuel tax credit, but only after Jan 1? How about the gas/diesel mileage versus the R 350?

Does anyone want to sell the rear console to their R Class? Macademia color?
#655 of 697 Headlight Problems on my R350
Dec 15, 2006 (12:23 am)
All the roads in my part of Mass. are two lane, twisty and crowded so I have to drive at night with my low beams only. The low beam on my R only shines out about 25-30 ft which isn't sufficient lighting for the 35-40 mph limit. I asked the dealer to raise the low beams and they say that they are not adjustable. There is no adjustment possible.
I can't imaging a $50,000 car with no headlight adjustment. My $25,000 Subaru has adjustments, why can't M-B do it??

the stock low beams are pretty bad particularly if you are used to HIDs. I would have gotten the lighting package on my 500 if i could have one with that option - i bought at the tail end of the '06s in order to save $17,000. So, following the lead of others on the benz enthusiast boards, i bought philips aftermarket bulbs (crystalvision or xtreme) for $30 pair. They give a much brighter, whiter light. I bought them for my odyssey 2 days later. they really improve the amount of light and the color.
#657 of 697 Garage door opener
Dec 17, 2006 (4:51 am)
I am having trouble with my garage door opener. I have "programed" the car with the old opener, but it only works when I'm in the garage, not when I'm coming home and trying to get in to the garage. The MB service people tell me to move the antenna to the chasis of the opener on the ceiling. The antenna needs to stay with the transmitter. Any thoughts?
Also, my rear view driver's mirror seems distorted. Is this "normal"?
