    Have done exactly the same listening to the wife whilst the beeps were telling me to stop.

    If it had been the radio I could have turned it down but the wife doesn't have a volume switch. :eek:

    The sound volume on my "other non-Mercedes car" reduces significantly when the parking sensors bleep. My 1994 W124 unfortunately does not have this parking facility.

    Neither my SL or ML reduces the radio volume when they are activated, that would be useful. Instead MB think such things as blindspot assist and lane control are more useful for some reason.

    I had an aftermarket "mute on reverse" in my old W168, together with an aftermarket rear sensors (sound only, no display), and an aftermarket reversing camera, I think I was pretty much covered ha-ha-ha :bannana:

    it is daft that MB sensors only beep on red, not on amber as you approach the obstacle as other cars do
