Oh ya, the dog: 12 year old Alaskan Malamute, mostly blind with cataracts.
The high today was zero with a 10-20mph wind all day. I open the door and call her, she comes and looks into the garage and lays down outside. If I then make any attempt to bring her inside, she bolts. She values her liberty above all else, including bacon.

I'm guessing they move themselves around while you corner and such to hold you in place better....?

Yup, an evolution from the 124/126/210 air bladder seats.

The original version, you set it to make you comfortable and it stayed there (assuming they weren't leaking).

The W211+ version, the seats dynamically adjust based on the data from the various vehicle dynamics sensors. Gives you more support during tight cornering. Very cool.

My neighbor across the street has one of these cars. I need to let her know, that if she ever gets the bug to sell/trade it in, to come talk to me first!
