Mercedes-Benz Garmin Map Pilot Navigation Video

Here is a quick demo of the Garmin Map Pilot for the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, CLA-Class and CLS-Class. This is a very well integrated system and I highly recommend it.

Four Shades of Grey – Palladium vs. Selenite vs. Mountain vs. Steel

For 2016, Selenite Grey has been made available on many models and Palladium Silver has been discontinued. I was trying to describe this color as the New Palladium but the more I looked at it, the less Palladium it looked. So, I pulled together all of my greys and here is what I came up with!

From Left to Right: Palladium Silver S550, Selenite Grey E350, Mountain Grey CLA250 and Steel Grey C300


I think Palladium is lighter and has more gold than Selenite.

Steel gray

If you compare the Steel C300 (closest) to the Mountain Grey CLA250, the Steel looks very blue and the Mountain looks a touch brown.

I think this is the best light/angle I captured to show the different colors.

I hope there is a color or paint expert out there that can tell me how to explain these! Until then it will remain light grey, medium grey and dark grey.

I love this commercial! Watching all of the vehicles drive by is fascinating!

Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class Accessories – Cargo Tray and Hangar

GLA250 Atlanta

The Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class has only been available for a few months and I am just starting to get feedback from my early adopters. It seems to be a hit! This client did his research early and asked for a couple of additions before he picked it up.

The Cargo Tray is an excellent addition to the vehicle. The 2″ tall lip means that anything you spill will be contained. The first time they handed it to me at the parts desk I was sure it was the wrong one. It was huge! The GLA250 really does have an impressive amount of storage.

Mercedes coat hangar

The Coat Hangar works for most Mercedes-Benz models (must have headrest stalks) and is a popular option with doctors. I guess balling up your lab coat in the back seat is a no-no.

Also, I just saw an announcement that the all-weather liners for the GLA-Class, CLA-Class and B-Class are now available.

  • A117 680 2800 – Front, 2 Pieces, Black $110
  • A117 684 0600 – Rear – 1 Piece, Black $70

Accessorize your Mercedes! You’ll love it even more!

2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG with Performance Studio Package

Here it is! Our first 2015 CLA45 AMG with the Performance Studio Package has arrived and it is an eye catcher!

CLA details

The red accents look amazing on this black car and I didn’t even notice the lower decal until I was taking these pictures!

The interior is full of red accents and the very sporty dinamica interior.

The red grille surround is my favorite feature.

This one is already sold but you can order your own now!

CLA red trim

The 2014 CLA250 has a new option package! The Sport Package (code 321) has been a hot item since launch and they have now added the Sport Package Plus (code 421) to dress it up even more! A lot of cars in Europe had similar trim packages with the red accents and it looked hot! It is subtly but very eye catching and does make it stand out in the crowd.

  • 18″ AMG wheels
  • Sport Suspension
  • Diamond Grille with Silver Pins
