    Just picked up my C63 today and wondering if there are any hidden secret or useful hidden options hiding away within the car?

    If it's a 450 bhp version the throttle is limited to 90 % so a simple re map will unleash another 50 bhp!!!!

    Press the brake firm down when you come to a stop and the HOLD sign will appear which holds the car until you move off.

    In manual (M) mode, when wanting to change down, just hold the left paddle and the car will change down multiple gears quicker than pulling the paddle multiple times...

    C63 (W204) and C240 (W202) - just not at the same time!
    A couple of things...

    1. Watch out for when you hit 5k rpm, you'll experience space shuttle thrust
    2. Be careful when entering roundabouts, objects in front of you will be in closer proximty faster than you realise.

    Otherwise, simply wind window down turn radio off and enjoy!

    If you select Manual Mode on the gearbox and do not go beyond 6th gear the limiter will not cut in , hence on a private test track the maximum speed is approachable/ achieveable
    A friend drove mine and advised that he achieved 170-175 mph and the car was still accelerating
    Not bad for a relatively humble 457bhp version

    I tested it and my car hit a limiter in 6th with 162 mph showing on the speedo.

    There is a great feature which I have somehow managed to loose. On Satnav, when you are getting low on petrol, theres an option where the computer asks you if you want directions to the nearest filling stations. Then it lists them by supplier i.e. shell, BP, Texaco, Tesco etc etc

    Despite trying to find it, I still cant get it back :confused: Really good feature too

    If you hold the ignition key close to the drivers door lock and press and hold the unlock button, all the windows will wind down, the sunroof will open simultaneously.
    Press and hold the lock on the key and they will close!

    Can we say what cars these hidden tricks are on? Pre facelift or newer? I'm fed up with reading stuff about these only to find I'm not worthy as I'm a poor pre facelift owner lol.
