    W447 V Class tailgate, opening glass

    Parked alongside a W447 V220 today and saw that the glass on the tailgate opened independently, which is a nice feature. Is this standard? Anybody know if it's available on the W447 Vito as well?

    I'm sure you are all aware of this, but it was just by chance I discovered that I can close the tailgate by pressing and holding the button rather than pulling and releasing to open. Just thought I would throw it out there!
