Yeah the comand is definitely 3D, sure it wasn't the cheaper APS50 in the car you were in?

Problem with the A5 is the drive is so boring in Quattro guise and just plain shit in FWD.
But does look nice, however don't think it looks anywhere near as nice as the C Coupe imho.

I couldn't find that display set up when I Played with the nav. Salesman said it didn't have a 3D perspective, so he clearly doesn't know the product. It was an Ed 125 so it was COMAND. I did like the prevailing speed limit being indicate in the middle of the speedo.

The full on 3D isn't enabled by default (it's under the settings menu for the nav) but also it only functions in major cities and certain other locations

It's a lovely shape - like the E92, not overstated or over-flash. And that is a very nice interior. First time I've seen ally trim look good in quite a long while.

Enjoy

Nice interior, love the steering wheel definitely better than the BMW interiors..even the new 3 series F30 looks a bit dated

Yes, I like that a lot (even though it's silver). The shape of the C-Class coupe is really nice and as it's coming towards you it looks a bit like a shrunken CL (the big coupe).

How ordinary (or is it familiar) does your 335i look parked next to it now!?

I'm very jealous of the Nav as I reckon Mercs' Comand is a brilliant system, especially with 3D maps. My M3 had 3D maps and they didn't look as good as the photo above.
