    It's a Mercedes cls 350cdi grand edition btw , I've seen videos online though and they seem to have a line next to the mileage displaying the gear , just starting to annoy me for some reason , but if can't be done then oh well

    As mentioned previously no provision for gear display unless in manual mode.

    I believe the lines next to the mileage indicate over 100k

    Can it not be reprogrammed by someone fluent with STAR?

    If you are in automatic mode then you should see a "D" and the gearbox mode C or S (or whatever for your model).

    If you are in "manual" mode then you should see the actual gear you are in if not in top.

    As above, the line is for over 100k

    On mine, when your in 'S' it will display the gear number if you use the manual tip option.

    On my partner's 2014 SLK, the gear it is currently in is displayed regardless of if it's in E, S or M mode. Wish my E Class did the same

    My wife's 2013 slk doesn't show the gear but my 2015 e coupe does. Obviously a recent upgrade

    So, to those saying their car does not show what gear it is in...how do know you are not in a lower gear than top gear if, say, you had accidentally nudged your gear shift to select a lower gear?

    This is how it always was for me. If I restricted the gear range by nudging the selector left, the highest permissible gear would show. If in 'M' mode the actual current gear in use would show

    In this circumstance the gear you are in is displayed.
