Selling our 2017 B250e

(The marketplace is not allowing posts, so I wanted to try here) We're preparing to move abroad and are putting our beloved B up for sale. 2017 MY Mountain Gray metallic with Sahara Beige MB Tex interior & Black Ash wood trim (this is the most beautiful combo, and kid-proof, even though it's white) ...

Re: Sad but true

Hi Jeff, Don't back down. Try another dealer. We tried doing the same thing when our lease was up. About a month before our lease was up we got stuck in a loop: dealer "talk to MBFS" - MBFS "talk to the dealer." Finally as the lease ended, we went to our original salesperson who leased us our 2014 a...

Re: Next EV?

@JeffRay, The purchase price was before taxes and registration, and there was a $150 purchase option fee, plus $650 lease end fee in the contract. We had a 24 month lease, so that may be why the residual was so much higher than yours. When we returned our 2014, the residual was pretty spot on with K...

Re: Next EV?

Our lease on my wife's 2017 came up last month. It's gray with the white MB-tex interior, which my wife fell in love with. I had her try the Kia, Leaf, Golf, Bolt, Model 3. Nope, she wanted hers. Our residual was $23,547, which is considerably more than KBB. Great if we were to give up the car, crap...

Re: Best Level 2 Home Charger?

We got the ChargePoint charger with the 15' chord. I really like that the charger is wifi enabled. I set it up with information about our local rate plan, plug the car in when my wife gets home, and it starts automatically as soon as the rate changes to off peak (different hours weekdays and weekend...

Re: Help Fixing rear turn signals to blink amber ?

Just for fun, I took apart the tail light cluster, to check how the lights are wired. I noticed that there is power sent to the upper outside lamp, and the neutral is shared with the wires going to the non-functioning amber LEDs. I soldered a jumper wire on the positive lead, and blink goes the ambe...

Die nächste Generation des Phaeton wird mit einem langstreckentauglichen, vollelektrischen Antrieb und zukunftsweisenden Assistenzsystemen neue We...

Help Fixing rear turn signals to blink amber ?

I had noticed, much to my dismay, that our US spec car has red rear turn signals. I scoured through videos of European spec cars, and finally found one brief shot of the rear making a turn with the amber light. Went outside to look at the tail lights today, and sure enough, all of the amber LEDs are...

Re: Deciding between 14/15 Lease

We just signed on a '14 lease on Monday. Black/Black MB tex, P01 Premium Package, Radar recuperative system, Walnut Trim, Blindspot assist, and Multimedia. My wife really wanted the tan/beige interior, but I called about 20 dealers in the SF Bay area, and even on the east coast. Nada. The sales rep ...
