I am a big fan of the Mercedes-Benz Build Your Own tool at MBUSA.com. I use it everyday to visualize color combinations, illustrate the differences in sport packages and price custom vehicles. Now MBUSA has taken it to Instagram! I am pretty impressed with their ingenuity. Try it and see what you think. Tag me if you repost your new car!

The Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure is this weekend in Atlanta! This will be my 7th time participating in the event and, as always, I am proud to raise money and awareness for this cause. If you live or work anywhere near our path please come out and cheer us on. We need the encouragement!
If you are looking to send your charity dollars somewhere, my team link is on the left of this page. We’ve hit our minimum but every dollar towards the cure is a good investment.
I’ll be posting pictures all weekend to my Instagram account tagged #the3day if you want to follow along!
2014 3-Day route

It has been a great year for the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 team! With 3 races to go they have already locked in the Constructors’ title and the two drivers are battling for the Drivers’ title! It has been a great season and I think that deserves a t-shirt! I just ordered a couple of these as gifts for my favorite F1 fans from the official Formula 1 store. Mercedes Pride!

Sometimes new vehicles have surprises in store for us! This 2015 GLA45 AMG has the world’s most powerful 4-cylinder and the new owner proclaimed it “cute as a bug.” Unfortunately, we realized the Summer Tires it was equipped with from the factory were not going to be adequate for their winter driving needs.
Here is the solution! From 20″ matte black wheels for the summer…
To 19″ Silver and Grey Wheels with All-Season Tires for the winter!
We could not find a set of all season tires to mount to the 20″ wheels so we went another route. We found a good looking set of 19″ Mercedes-Benz wheels and mounted an all season 19″ MOE tire to that set. Then we simply exchanged them! The 20″ black wheels are bagged up and ready to make their appearance in the spring! Very European, right?
Speaking of the old wheels…I was shocked to find out they easily fit in the back of the GLA45 with room to spare! Impressive!
Here is a close-up of the 19″ wheel we selected. It still shows off those amazing brakes and red calipers and now the car has two looks! Not a bad idea!

It’s here! The 2015 Mercedes-Benz S550 Coupe has landed! This is the Edition 1 version in Magnetite Black with Bengal Red leather. It is not officially for sale in the US until later this month but the preview is fantastic!
This is the first vehicle since the CLA-Class to get the diamond grille and to accent that, the Edition 1 has Swarovski Crystals in the headlamps!
The 20″ AMG MultiSpoke Wheels are a part of the P88 Edition 1 Package.
The interior is stunning! 4 position seating in luxurious Bengal Red leather is comfortable, sporty and a work of art!
I don’t think I can take too many pictures of this, do you?
And it looks as good going as it does coming!
This vehicle is not yet officially for sale and does not have final pricing. The S550 coupe starts at $119,900 and should be available by the end of the month!

This 2015 Mercedes-Benz S550 has just arrived! We special ordered it months ago with the design Silk Beige and Titanium Grey Exclusive Nappa Leather and it does not disappoint!
This interior is a $8600 option and looks like a million dollars! Look at the quilting on the armrest, the upholstered buttons on the seats and the contrasting door panels!
This S550 also has the Rear Seat Package and the Executive Rear Seat Package so the back seat is even nicer than the front!
Every angle is breathtaking!
The Burmester High End 3D surround sound speakers add even more detail to an amazing door!
This stunning S550 is available for sale now at Atlanta Classic Cars. You may never see another one!

Were you looking for a fun way to spend an hour? Here it is! I just downloaded a new app about the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class and it is magic! First, visit www.C-ClassTour.com and print the target sheet. Then download the app. I just searched for C-Class to find it. As you move your device over the page you can rotate the hologram! It is fascinating! Have fun!

The 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLAs began to arrive yesterday and are clean and ready for new homes today! We were lucky to receive not one, but two GLA250 Edition 1 vehicles! By request, here are some additional pictures of the car. It was parked next to the GLA45 AMG this morning and several people got them confused!
The gloss black wheels, mirror housings and the pano roof really jump out with the white exterior. The cloth inserts in the brown leather seats look like an expensive tweed. We don’t normally do cloth in the US but it is very durable, cool and a nice change of pace. The CLA launch edition sold out quickly…don’t miss out this time!
