Thanks for visiting my blog! Please contact me if you're thinking about purchasing a Mercedes-Benz in the
The 2009 C63 is available with 5 interior options. Having only seen the Black Leather (210), I was at a loss when Randall from California asked me exactly what the other interiors looked like. Since I couldn’t answer his question he visited a couple of local dealers and here are the results!
Sahara Beige/Black Leather Interior (205) only has the Beige Leather on the front of the driver and passenger seats. The whole dash, back of the seats and headliner are black.
The AMG Select Fabric Interiors (701 and 718) which are standard for 2009, are still a bit of a mystery. We have not seen it in person but it should look something like this. The Mercedes-Benz fabric has always been very good looking and shockingly durable. It was standard on the 2006 ML’s for a brief time and I was very impressed with the high quality and appearance of the fabric.
Thanks to Randall for filling in this gap my C63 knowledge!

Some of these cars can be used with special financing, some cannot. Miles vary from 300 to 12,000. I would suggest that you come by the dealership and see the cars in person to determine which car is the best deal for you. Please call me to set up an appointment and ask for me when you arrive.
Update: The Demo Sale was a HUGE success. Please look for the updated post…most of the vehicles are sold.
Now that the 2009 vehicles have arrived, I have had a chance to spend some time with each of them and I have noticed some of the quirks that show up every year. These are little changes that aren’t really announced but can be a bit of a shock to those of us to take the accessories very seriously.
My Biggest Loss –
The US has a new law that requires all window roll UP functions to be controlled by a button that you have to hold in the UP position. So, that means that tunnel mode, where you hold DOWN the recirculate button and all of the windows close, is out. So is remote roll up, where you hold the lock button on the key DOWN, to roll up all the windows at once. This was a very convenient function on the lot when I am in and out of cars all day, trying to keep them cool. However, it is being slowly phased out so some cars still work this way and some don’t!
2009 ML, GL, R-Class
If I find any more I’ll keep you posted!
The last one we had lasted 4 hours in inventory. Call me immediately if you are interested. 770 279 3680. Good Luck!
You may remember that last November I won the C-Class Walk-Around Competition for all of the dealerships in the Southern Region. Mercedes has just published a DVD showing my presentation along with the 3 other regional winners. This DVD has been sent to all US dealerships and will be used as a training example.
Before you watch the video, it’s important to know that we were given a theoretical customer to tailor our presentation to. My customer was Art Vandelay (someone likes Seinfeld), an Architect with a wife and new baby.
Mercedes has just annouced that the 2009 BlueTEC SUVs will qualify for the federal Alternative Motor Vehicle Credit. This is the same tax credit that has been avaliable on most hybrid vehicles. One interesting thing is that because Toyota and Lexus have already sold their total of eligible vehicles none of their hybrids will qualify for this credit. Here are the details from Mercedes-Benz.
