Hungarian and Finish I always found unfathomable. I don't envy you. Helsinki was one of my offices and I remember my first trip there a million years ago, listening to the TV in the hotel in the morning for 30 minutes and the only word I genuinely comprehended was can you believe "Microsoft"! We have a Ukrainian family stopping with us due to the troubles there and the 12 year old can (get this) count to 20 in Ukrainian of course, English, Hebrew and Japanese. Career wise I calculated recently that I'd done over 2000 return flights (quite a few to Japan) and this kid is a country mile ahead of me at 12.I see it on the app but don't know how it works. We apparently get 1 year of free charging at Ionity stations but nowhere else (if I understood him correctly). I did ask about that specifically. Apparently the day it all begins is yesterday despite us not having the car yet. I believe you link a charge card to the account and it should work. I also notice the app heavily favors the Mercedez wall charger unit which I didn't buy. I will ask about the things that are listed as not included on the app but I paid for so I suppose this is the fine tuning he has to do at the dealership. They seem to have a great deal of control on this kind of stuff. Perhaps I can talk him into adding the 10-degree radius turning as that is just a software purchase and probably something he can add. Our salesman is also the manager so perhaps it gets easier still for him. He did tell me it takes roughly 4 days for the Mercedes Me app to download all the features. Not sure why that would be but he seemed to expect it as normal. He also knew about the Apple issues and said there is nothing they can do about it. It is something the programmers screwed up at Mercedes. BUt, I find this kind of thing constantly so programmers are not particularly good anymore.
The options are very different packages in each country. Here we have Premium, Advantage, and Advantage Plus. I ended up with the latter but it doesn't include a lot of features standard in packages in the US. I added the AMG exterior but was unaware there is also an AMG interior option. I added the remote parking, the tiny stars grill but rejected the night vision package which I think just adds tinting and some minor trim. I added the Nappa leather which also forced an upgrade to the MBUX large screen which I wanted anyway. The rear passenger stuff is all extra and not in a package. Really, here almost everything is listed separately. Sadly, there is no English language for the configurator so I had to rely on Google Translate in Chrome to do that and it is hit and miss for the Hungarian language. The dealer salesman speaks conversational English (moderately) but can't read it and has a lot of difficulty explaining features so I likely missed a few I wanted. My conversational Hungarian isn't up to the task for a lot of things and Hungarian is probably the hardest language in the world to learn. I learned Chinese easier than Hungarian as an example. That is how different it is from English or anything European. It isn't a complaint about Hungary on my part just part of living here which can make things difficult. We chose to live here and this is part of the process. It extends to a lot of things like social values etc. which are also very different from western Europe or the US.
Yes I believe the free offer is Ionity. not sure you have that there or not. Not many in the UK yet. Well not many further up country.
Worth to check the Plug & Charge. That should be standard I believe but again country options may make that different.
The Apple thing is a huge oversight. Not one that impacts us but it would not take a marketing genius to fathom a certain synergy between EQS and Apple types. Poor stuff which surely they must be treating as a priority to resolve.
The UK option sets are easier if narrower than rest of Europe. Still it causes me to go back and check a good deal deeper given the indicators from your side. And it more than sounds like you did your homework. Imagine being the guy who just pushed play.
