A remote from the dealership will be very pricey. I would assume you got a base model if it does not have remote start? You always have the option of doing an aftermarket one as well.
You can still buy a brand new Mercedes that still requires a physical key to be inserted into the column to start the car.My wife bought this car recently found it odd a car that cost this much doesn't come with remote start. The stealership wants almost $ 400.00 Thanks
Yes, you can bypass the nav via a number of different ways. The easiest is with a plug/play box (search for nav bypass on this site), the other is to wire the bypass with a physical switch (pics and wiring are available on this site).I have the premium package and I hear you can bypass to be able to use DVD in front screen is this true? I did this in my other car and the bypass gave me issues.
