I've been researching the EQB and decided to go ahead with a AMG Line Launch Edition as the spec seem v good and premium. Just been told by the dealer that Mercedes aren't offering this anymore due to chip shortages.
The next level down the AMG premium seems v limited in spec.
e.g. Single option on interior trim - the red stitching is an odd colour to default all cars to!?
e.g. No option to add 360 cameras - I had a SEAT hire car in Spain which had this as default!
e.g. No option to add electric seats & memory settings - I'm 6ft + & my wife is 5ft4... so that'll be lots of manual seat adjustments
e.g. premium looking alloys with the multispoke design - yet they still use this in all nearly all the advertising images!
Now there's a warning on the MB site - so no comms in car!
Owing to supply shortages, availability of the communication module (LTE) for certain vehicles may be temporarily restricted. This situation particularly affects the Mercedes me connect services, including the emergency call system (eCall). Regularly updated information on this issue is available from Mercedes-Benz dealers.
Add in that Mercedes execution of apple & andriod car play is basic at best... as the screen is a small central square only of the larger screen... so that's a big draw back if there's no comms module.
So my Q for general comment... Is whether this is worth getting at all?
Seem we're paying a premium price for a car that really isnt that premium in it's interior quality / driving gadgets...
Any view on whether we should wait until they re-introduce the better specs? Any idea when this would be? If any one can share any additional info it'd be appreciated
