Hi, Need advice. I have a 2007 Gl 450. Can someone please share their experience. Need input on the following.

Did you drive with US insurance.

Depends.
Varies.
If already tested, just taillights.
No, unless you are typical Mercedes driver.
US insurance worthless.
Don't know.
GPS for Chicago relatively limited in Basel.
Clock runs different.
Radio is useless.
Search other forums. Exhaustively discussed.
