I am very excited to see the new Museum Monday videos from Mercedes-Benz. Having visited the museum twice I recognize all of the displays and can’t wait to hear some behind-the-scenes info! Nice to meet you Uke!
When I tell clients that the vehicle they ordered is on the way from Germany, I usually add a disclaimer about “barring any catastrophe” it should be here in 10 days. This is that catastrophe! This vehicle transport ship was in danger of capsizing so they had to run aground to save it! Good news, no Mercedes aboard. However, it still turns my stomach to look at it!
If you carefully read through the insurance documents for the Mercedes-Benz European Delivery program you will find that the car has coverage for Marten damage.
Damage caused by martens chewing through or biting cables, tubes, leads and wires of vehicles licensed as private motor vehicles with the exception of rental vehicles, taxis and self-driven rental vehicles.
Ummm, what kind of monsters do they have in Europe!? Here is a video from Audi addressing the issue. It made me grateful to only have mice.
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 Paris Motor Show is happening now and Mercedes-Benz brought a great selection of new releases!
Visit the Paris Motor Show site for a good video of Dr. Z presenting the vehicles and do some Googling to see great pictures!
There are just two new features on the 2015 S550 that were not available on the 2014 S550. However, both of those features are very cool and have earned their own videos!

I don’t know Jim personally but he is very helpful!
Crash test videos are always interesting to me. It is amazing to see the crumple zones in action! I have always maintained that the Smart is a very safe vehicle because of the safety cell. You’ll be fine…once they hunt down your car!
You are now getting my Euro Delivery Experience all out of order! This was day 3. We drove from Switzerland to northern Italy to experience the Stelvio Pass! This road is world famous for the twists and turns through the Alps. As you’ll see it is full of motorcycles, bicycles, cars and the occasional tractor. This is a 6 minute video but we really did this type of driving for 3 hours! It was shockingly well mapped by the navigation system. Worth the detour if you find yourself in the area. Just follow the herds of bikes!
