    Been meaning to ask ... before I bought the C63, when reading/watching reviews I noticed that some cars have a 'filled in' star on the grille (ie Nick Trott's evo long termer - same MY as mine) - and some don't (ie mine). I don't think it's a market (ie climate) thing as my fil's CL600 (57) has a filled in one, and my wife's SL (57) doesn't .. anyone any idea which cars do and don't? Just curious ...

    That's for "distronic" cruise control. It senses a vehicle in front and slows your car down.

    Thanks chaps - 2 for the price of one! I'd always wondered what the little thingy was on the front of my Q7 too!

    On the E class and S class saloons you can see a square patch behind the standard MB grill in the photo's, that is where they put it an cars without a front Star, only the S class has "Distronic Plus"
