The First Edition V6 does not have keyless entry. You need to press the button on the fob to unlock, but you don't need to put a key in to start the car, once the door is open with key in your pocket just clutch in and press the button and engine starts. They call it "keyless go" which probably confuses things more rather than clarifies it!

That is confusing considering Mercedes and other manufactures use the term "keyless go" to mean touch sensitive door handles, while keyless start is just the push button ignition.

Yea, this was noted in an earlier discussion about an year ago. Still I am surprised that Mercedes was able to register these trademarks since they are merely descriptive, especially Keyless Start.
