The 2017 E43 AMG stopped by for training this week! It is scheduled for release in the US November, 2016. I can’t wait to take it for a spin!
The 2017 E300 is the first car in a few years with a different Homelink system. Here is what worked for me.
Step One: Hold one of the buttons on the bottom of the Mirror (1,2, or 3). Light flashes.
Step Two: At the same time, hold The Button You Want to Program on the remote. Light flashes quickly.
Now your mirror is programmed but you must teach the garage about it. (Love this guy!)
Step Four: Press and then release the button on the mirror that you programmed (1, 2, or 3). It might work! If not, press and release again. My garage works on the third try.
You did it! Nice work!
(Thanks to Chris in SC for helping me solve this mystery!)
In case you missed it, the 2017 E300 is now available on the MBUSA website to Build Your Own!
My favorite part is laying out the Premium Packages side-by-side to compare the components. So helpful!
It’s here! Our first shipment of 2017 E300s has arrived at Atlanta Classic Cars! Now you can test drive, love it, and take it home! Call me to set up an appointment! 770 279 3680
Here they are, side-by-side! Can you see all of the differences?

I attended training for the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E300 yesterday. It is not anticipated to hit US showrooms until later this summer so it was great to get a sneak peek!
I saw a variety of paints and interiors, although all were sport models. Here is a video of the test drive cars:
I had several sections of training on the advanced technology, build quality and competitive comparisons.
I was able to test the Parking Pilot, Active Brake Assist, and Distance Pilot Distronic on a closed course. In short, the car is better a recognizing things in the road and helping you to stop on time. Also, it parks itself much faster!
I went for a nice long drive in the E300 on both highways and city streets to feel the engine, new 9-speed transmission and overall feel. The 241 horsepower and 279 lb/ft or torque was plenty for me. It is actually a touch faster than the outgoing V6 and significantly more efficient. The 9-speed erases any turbo lag and the overall build quality makes it quieter and more luxurious than ever!
The interior is beautiful. There are lots of new little details that make the E300 more plush and elegant than the outgoing model. There is enough change to be new and exciting but enough similarity that I could figure out the controls easily. I think with a day of practice this E300 will make the systems in the old E feel old.
Overall the all-new Mercedes-Benz E300 will be a great addition to the line-up and I look forward to having it for sale soon! Look for more videos coming today!
The 2017 Mercedes-Benz E300 should arrive very soon.
The MSRP was just announced: $52,150!
This is almost $1000 LESS than the current E-Class and when you factor in some of the new standard features it is approximately a 10% value enhancement.
New, standard features:
I will get to see the E-Class up close and personal during my training event in about 2 weeks. Check back for all of my impressions!
