Guys I just picked my car up this weekend. I have attached a pic. Traded in my C63.

Car is awesome. The Forum did not let me register for a few days for some reason!

My blind spot assist on the right rear view mirror does not work. Have to take the car in this saturday. How long will the dealer take to fix this issue?

Thanks,

Sean

Probably depends on which dealer/SD you chose. It seems almost every one is different, (good or not so good, etc.).

Congrats on your new coupe - beautiful!!

Enjoy your Coupe. Consider blacking out the chrome--it looks great on the Black Diamond!

I have been on the fence between the C63 and V. How would you rate the differences? Do you have the Recaro seats? If so how would you rate them for comfort over the C63 seats.

Dont base your decision on that only! Im still playing around with the new seats. Only advise is get every option you want on the V as it is impossible to do it with the C.

I got the same thing, only with chrome wheels...

Let me know what happens with the blindspot...


With mine, worked the first day, after washing my car the second day I had it, it didn't work at all for 2 days... Then after I washed my car again, it started working... Only one more time did I get the error about it not working, since then it's worked 100%

What package includes the blind spot assist (SBZA)? I thought I had every option on my 2012 vagon. I checked the manual (sec 9-46) which references the SBZA setting in the DIC and I don't think I have it. Was it added later in the model year? What am I missing?

The blind spot assist is standard on the coupe, and not available on the sedans and wagons.

both actually. a metco 2.50 upper pulley, (bumps stock boost from 9psi to 12ps,... good for 80-90 rwhp) a much needed cold air intake(cai) .and eibach lowering springs, that should put you in the fast lane. =] all for under $650.00. dyno tune and labor for @ $1,500.00

a.pulley: 130.00
b.springs: 227.00
c.cai: 250.00

Thanks Pete, that explains why I don't have SBZA. I don't understand why only the coupe has it. I guess we sedan and wagon owners just aren't worthy.

Maybe because you have windows to see your blindspot where the coupes do not.

Great looking ride. I just bought a 12 coupe also and love it. I was also looking at the C63 but glad I went with the V..
