A new cargo liner has been made availabe for the GL-Class through Mercedes-Benz. It solves the problem of how to protect the area behind the third row AND behind the second row with the third row folded flat! Until now I have been using the ML-Class cargo liner, which is a little too short, and just folding it in half to put the third row up. It worked well until you needed the third row and the storage behind it. This mat simply velcros to the carpet at the top and bottom and folds as you raise the seats. It allows access to all of the tie down points and allows you to raise the seats individually. Perfect! You can order it from your local parts department.
GL-Class Foldable Cargo Liner – Part # BQ6750038 – MSRP $145

My very first unsold 2012 CLS63 AMG just arrived at the dealership! I have only driven it around the parking lot and I am already impressed! This car is a show stopper! This particular car has the prettiest piece of Burl Walnut Wood I have ever seen! It is currently available for sale and ready to go to a new home! Call before you come by…it won’t last long.

Here are some pictures of the new Dakota Brown metallic paint, color code 796. This is on a new 2012 GL450 with the cashmere interior. Dakota Brown is also available on the M-Class and the R-Class for 2012. This color is much lighter than the Cuprite Brown that I have seen on the sedans. It has a lot of gold in the sun. I would call it Tobacco Brown if I were being descriptive.
The 2012 ML350 arrived late last night! Our first model is Black/Black with the Premium 1 Package. This one is ready to test drive and there are more on the way!
I have been on several test drives today and I am most impressed by the new speed sensitive electromechanical steering. It makes maneuvering in parking lots incredibly easy and feels great at high speeds too. The interior is beautiful, comfortable and technologically impressive.
The 2012 ML350 4matic was released for sale today! The new MLs are at the factory being prepped to ship to all of the dealers in the US. I have 3 that are all set to go and awaiting transport! I should have them available for test drive before the weekend!
New color for 2012! One of the new C-Classes we received is Sapphire Grey. Once again, I don’t think the pictures do it justice. Darker than Palladium, not as dark as Steel Grey, it has a greenish-blue cast in sunlight that you can’t see at night or in direct sun. It is subtle but clearly new. It is nice to see another color (not black, white or silver) in the line-up!
Our first 2012 C-Classes arrived last night! I received C250 coupes and sedans, C350 coupes and one C350 sedan that already has an owner. It will be a great weekend to test drive our new 4-cylinder and the direct injected 6-cylinder engines. The cars will be done with inspection and detail today and ready for new homes Saturday morning!
