Heat in CLK
The console gets pretty warm - not too hot to touch. What raises my suspicion is that the cup holder compartment gets pretty hot (especially when the car has resting periods - i.e. drive for 1/2 hour, stop for half hour and then drive and stop again - like running errands on a weekend) - You'd expect Mercedes to design that correctly. Also, the bottom (metal) portion of the shifter gets pretty hot, sometimes even too hot to touch for more than 5 seconds... I went to the dealer today and they said it was normal - any feedback on that?
