Good points. I could probably live with gas gauge reading, but since the car is still under warranty, I'll put the onus on Mercedes to rectify. I'll certainly ask about the software updates as well.

Yes, another brilliant move by Mercedes.... The only way to get the paddle shifters on the 453 was to order the sport package.
