Got my Neptune CT4s last week, have to say I’m really pleased with the color. I was very nervous before getting it. Will try to grab a few more scenic pics, but here are some from the driveway.

Car was delivered with electric steering column, and one key. Also the wireless charging seems like it’s not working, but not sure if it’s missing a chip or not. Also have had a few random interior alarms go off, but overall very pleased with the car.

They're all supposed to, but a lot have been delivered without the chip due to shortages.

Is your interior alarm going off all the time too? I turned off interior monitoring to solve the issue till my car has to go get its electric steering column. Yes the phone charger is a chip issue too.

Yes. I try to double click the lock button every time I leave the car to turn it off, but I've forgotten a few times. It's gone off 3 times. I guess it's a endemic problem with the cross turismo's? Like you I figure it'll have to go in eventually for the charging chip, so I was going to wait a bit.

All i need is for that thing to go off in the middle of the night and wake up the whole family... I'll end up having to sleep in the car.

The day I picked it up, I went to go pick up pizza and when I came out someone was taking a picture of it. They told me it was awesome and said they were excited I was there so they could hear how it sounds... HA. Well bud, you're not going to hear much because it's electric!

In the PCM I turned it off, but I check the box to ask me when I turn off the car. Yes, it requires me to touch the screen when I get out of the car, but I know the interior alarm is off (it has turned itself on by itself so just making sure).

Congratulations. I picked up my CT4 last week. Same issue with the steering column. The alarm has gone off numerous times when I forget to deselect interior alarm on the exit screen. What's the phone charging issue? I tried mine on a long drive today, seemed to work fine. I really like the navigator displays and graphics, but it is so inflexible on routes that I'm probably going to stick with CarPlay. Great 130 mile drive today into the local mountains. The ride is so great. Great handling and so peaceful. I thought I like the roar of my AMG exhaust -- I guess I've aged into a greater desire for quiet comfort.
