Guys, thanks for the useful information. To clarify, the gear indicator panel is illuminated, but at night there is no way to see where is the gear lever. One has to turn on the lights to see what gear the car is on. Granted, it is easy to say if you are on reverse (
), but it would be useful if there is a pointer insight the illuminated panel that moves along with the lever.
It is hard to think that the MB engineers did not think of something like that, when other manufacturers have something similar. I understand that perhaps this is a detail, but MB has spoiled us with a lot of similar details.
Thanks again. All the nbest, Zaph.
