Today M got up at 3:30am (I was still awake writing curriculum) and went with his Dad by train to the Mercedes factory to pick up his Dad’s new car.
Boys and their toys, but honestly, I wouldn’t have minded a factory tour either! :)
The drive home took them 6 hours, but was amazingly enjoyable according to M.
When they arrived home, Dad gave me a brief tour of the new car.
To say that the car wasn’t just amazing would be a lie…a BIG one!
It is fantastic! Every bell and whistle imaginable.
It has a massage feature in both seats.
It can turn your brights on automatically.
The headlights automatically adjust their height depending on your speed.
The car actually recognizes when there is another vehicle in your blind spot and will beep at you when you try to move into it’s path.
It also has adaptive cruise control and you can preset a distance between you and the car in front and the car will accelerate or decelerate depending on the speed of the car in front of you. And yes, because I asked, if the car in front of you stops, you stop too.
It can read the speed limit signs and displays it inside the car.
On top of all the standard Mercedes features, the car actually reminds you to take a break from long stretches of driving by illuminating a coffee cup icon on the dash.
I haven’t been out for drive in it yet but am hoping to do so before we leave. Very cool. Did I mention it has a built in massager? Ahh….
