Default IS 250C - Can you remotely make the top go down?


The top goes down by itself at around 1:05 (nobody is sitting in the driver seat holding the button down).

Is it possible to remotely make the top go down?! The dealers told me I couldn't do it but apparently you can from the video?

Probably had someone in there pushing it. I can't see any benefit of it going down remotely.

Great review of a great car. I get a lot better than 21 mpg and, to say the least, I drive it spiritedly.

You can see there is no one inside the car right around that 1:05 mark.
I know other manufacturers have this capability from their fob. We can only lower all the windows. Would be real nice if we could do more...

I bought one for my wife's care at Xmas time and I haven't even installed it yet (Mercedes). Har. I will get around to it some day, but mostly, the attitude I'm getting from 3 convertible users, including my wife, is that it's not a big whup. Considering the top opens in like 20 seconds, for the 1 in 20 times I open the top, I have to agree now that it's probably not much. I think I would like to see that the windows close by themselves after the top is put back up instead of manually having to put them all up.

After the operation completed chime, keep holding the switch. It will roll up all the windows.

You can also get the windows up while the top is still closing, watch in your mirror and when the arms with the small flat covers start to fold into the trunk pull the all window switch and the windows will close at almost the same time as the top finishes putting the trunk back down. Try it and you will see what I mean.
