2012 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG – Motor Trend Road Test

Mercedes-Benz E63 Indium Grey

“Sometimes, though, the stars align and we’re given a perfect car for a given  situation. Such was the case when I had the keys to a 2012  Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG for four days.”

“I carried friends in their 30s and parents in their 60s in the rear seat and  didn’t hear a single complaint – rather, I got a couple positive remarks on leg  room. Let there be no doubt – the E63 can carry four adults in total comfort for trips to dinner (and probably  longer).”

“There are more driver-oriented cars than the E63, more powerful cars, more  expensive cars, and cars with more wow-factor. But few can satisfy demands for  performance, practicality, and elegance in the way an E63 can.”

Mercedes-Benz Financial Services First Class Products

Mercedes wheel and tireWhen you purchase or lease a new or pre-owned Mercedes-Benz you will be offered several options for additional protections in the business office. The protections range from GAP to Paintless Dent Repair. The Mercedes-Benz Financial Services website has a great section that goes over each coverage in detail. I am a Wheel and Tire Protection plan owner myself! Knowing that Mercedes-Benz stands behind these products makes the ownership experience easy!

All Season Floor Liners for the 2012 Mercedes-Benz ML350 and ML550

Mercedes-Benz Floor liners ML350 ML550

The All Season Floor Liners for the 2012 Mercedes-Benz ML-Class have been released! I really prefer these to the rubber mats. They protect the sides of the footwell, look really sleek and clean up easily. It is the same material as the Foldable Cargo Liner for the cargo area of the vehicle.

All Season Floor Trays for the 2012 ML-Class – MSRP $145:

  • Black – Part Number BQ 668 0719
  • Mocha – Part Number BQ 668 0720
2012 Mercedes-Benz ML350 with Auburn Brown / Black Leather and Brown Satin Ash Wood Trim

This 2012 ML350 already has an owner but it is the first one I have seen with this interior combination! This is the Auburn Brown/Black Leather and the Brown Satin Ash Wood trim. Both are special order options.

The Brown Satin Ash Wood trim feels very smooth and silky. You can actually feel the grain of the wood on the dashboard sections. It would be great for hiding fingerprints that show on the glossy finishes!

I love the full leather interiors on the 2012 ML-Class. The contrast piping and additional stitching look like a million dollars! I have now seen the Auburn Brown/Black leather interior with Black, Dakota Brown and Diamond White paints. It worked with all of them!

Mercedes-Benz Concept Style Coupe

Mercedes-Benz Concept Car

The Mercedes-Benz Concept Style Coupe is now featured in the Future Models Section of MBUSA.com. This vehicle may not become a production model exactly like you see it now, but there are elements that we will certainly see in the next few years.

Would you choose this flashy two-door over a traditional C-Class sedan? Would you prefer the small and sporty coupe to the larger CLS-Class? Is lime green piping the way to go?

iPad Docking Stations for Mercedes-Benz Vehicles – iPad 1 and iPad 2!

We just installed our first iPad docking stations in a 2012 GL450! For this particular client we installed an iPad 2 dock behind the driver seat and an iPad 1 dock behind the passenger seat.

Mercedes Benz iPad brackets

Here are the empty brackets. They are very slim and I hardly noticed them while I was driving the car.

iPads for Mercedes-Benz GL450

iPads and USB charging cables are not included. The cables were $5.99 at my local Fry’s Home Electronics.

iPad integration for Mercedes-Benz

The iPads slide into the bracket so that the headphone jack, volume controls and plug line up with the openings in the bracket. The iPad 1 is fatter than the iPad 2 and will only fit in the specific iPad 1 bracket. The iPad 2 will fit in the bracket for the iPad 1 but is more stable in the bracket that is specific to the iPad 2/3.

The iPads can be tilted up or down to adjust the viewing angle.

The brackets can be rotated vertically for reading.

Our first experience with the docking stations was great! The system was easy for the technicians to install, looks great in the vehicle and offers our customers another way to entertain back seat passengers! You can listen from the iPad out loud or through headphones. Also, vehicles with Bluetooth Audio Streaming should be able to pair to the iPads and stream through the vehicle sound system. Each docking station costs about $400 plus the cost of installation. That is a pretty good savings over the $1950 Rear-Seat Entertainment system, considering you can take these screens with you!

Mercedes-Benz 2013 SL550 is Officially Released For Sale on May 2nd!
