    Hi All,
    Long time no post from me!
    Recently been enjoying the W218 but life changes and now need something a little more practical. Have gone for a GLC which arrives earlier September hopefully. Any owners on here?
    Played with various options this time around, including the great new E Class, Disco Sport, but size wise and comfort wise GLC seemed to tick all the boxes!

    What are experiences of the forum with the GLC?

    Worked on 2, driven them both, very similar to the GLE...pointy steering, feels more like a car than the W164 and W166.

    Well just had a last min change of spec.
    Originally:
    Selenite 250d AMG Premium
    20" wheels
    Running Boards
    360 Camera

    Now changed to Black, with the Night Pack and the rest of the above remains. And very close to also adding the ILS.

    Yourself?

    Wow, you have pretty much ticked every box. We have also added the ILS. Night pack looks fantastic doesn't it!?
    We in the end also added the Smartphone integration over the COMAND. I look forward to seeing some pics from you in September! Our car is now going to be delayed as it is a factory order.

    Yes the night pack looks fab!
    Ah really, Mine was delayed too we ordered it in may but only able to actually put the order through a few weeks ago due to a few delayed options. So now have build date 4th sept, delivery 28th.
    We looked at the carplay but decided to go for Comand as wanted the bigger screen & i saw somewhere you couldnt have the driving package if not. - they should find a way to fit both!

    I've been thinking about swopping the C class for one of these. If so it would be after the crabbing is fixed.
    I had some time on my hands and was passing a dealer so had a good look over this model.
    I'm 6 foot nothing and banged my head every time I got inand out of the drivers seat. The seats themselves are not very comfortable. These things, along with the crabbing, are enough to put me off.
    May have to look at a GLE.

    I've ordered a GLC 43AMG , premium plus , night pack , designo hyacynth red, 360 camera , intelligent lights , full leather , was due 15th September now on a rolling hold at the factory whatever that means . The problems on full lock seem to mostly relate to large rim sizes and rubber band run flat tyres , sensible rim sizes and all season tyres and the problem goes away . Any way I will update when I finally get my hands on the beast.

    The "problem" does not go away it is just disguised. But your money your choice. Just don't sign any disclaimers that say the crabbing is a normal feature of these vehicles.
