Heated and Cooled Cupholders in the 2014 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class!

GL heated/cooled cup holders

The first of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz GL-Classes have arrived at the dealership. They are nearly identical to the 2013 models…but there are a couple of additions. The heated/cooled cupholders are part of the Premium 1 Package on the GL350/GL450 and standard on the GL550. I had seen this option few times in the past but never with the additional blue for cool and red for heat lighting scheme! It would look even more amazing at night with a clear container of liquid being cooled. Someone send me a picture…we can’t keep a GL on the lot long enough to take a picture at night!

New Cargo Tray for 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class

GL cargo tray

I have been using the 2011 M-Class cargo tray in the back of GL-Class vehicles with the third row seat folded flat. It turns out that Mercedes-Benz just released a better solution…the Cargo Tray for the GL-Class! This tray is perfectly molded to every contour of the cargo area and has small doors to allow access to the tie downs.

  • Part # 166 814 02 41
  • MSRP $130

Illuminated Star Installed on a 2014 Mercedes-Benz E350!

Mercedes light up star

Atlanta Classic Cars installed our first Illuminated Star on a 2014 Mercedes-Benz E350 today! I was worried it would be a little too flashy but it is well done and fairly subtle. It really does add a WOW factor the the vehicle! It was hard to take good pictures in the daytime but I did want to show how the housing for the bulbs is a full star and circle behind the chrome emblem.

Illuminated Star:

  • $480 for parts. Installation is additional.
  • Available for 2014 E-Class, 2006+ CLS-Class – Part Number BQ6880127
  • 2012+ ML-Class, 2013 GL-Class – Part Number BQ6880126
  • Not compatitible with Distronic

Mercedes-Benz 2011 M-Class Cargo Tray for 2013 GL-Class!

Mercedes-Benz does not currently have a cargo tray available for the 2013 GL-Class that works with the third row seat folded flat. I have found that the cargo tray for the 2006-2011 M-Class fits perfectly side to side and leaves just a small gap behind the second row seats. Don’t get the mat for the 2012 or newer M-Class…it is much too wide. Contact your local parts department to order.

2013 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Accessories – Sport Tail Lamp Kit with Clear Lenses!

There are lots of ways to customize your Mercedes-Benz! These Sport Tail Lamps with clear lenses recently became available and we installed them in a 2013 Mercedes-Benz E-Class. I parked a standard tail light car next to it for comparison. The clear lenses give it a very custom, European look in my opinion. I bet it would look very dramatic on a black car!

If you are interested in swaping your lights the part number is A2129061658 and the cost should be about $770 plus labor.
