2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Books!

New E-Class booksI just got pulled out my first set of 2017 E-Class books and was shocked to see that they are so tiny! Still plenty of books to read, just half the size!

Mercedes-Benz at the Atlanta Auto Show!

2017 C300 coupe

The Atlanta Auto Show is next Wednesday through Sunday at the World Congress Center (March 9-13).

The Mercedes-Benz display has grown and I expect to see the 2017 C63 AMG coupe, the 2017 GLS SUV along with perennial favorites like the GT S, G, and Mercedes-Maybach! There might be a 2017 E-Class as well…but I am not sure.

I plan to go on Wednesday and I’ll update you with the attendees!

Driven to Delight – A Mercedes-Benz USA Book!

From the author of similar books about The Ritz-Carlton, Zappos and Starbucks comes a new case study of how MBUSA has shifted focus from just “The Best or Nothing” in engineering to also “Driven to Delight” for the customer experience.

Someone called me “a company girl” the other day so obviously I have already read the excerpt and pre-ordered on Amazon.

It is a fascinating look behind the scenes at processes and decisions that directly impact how I do my job. I thought you might find it interesting too!

Bertie’s European Delivery Photo Book!

I had forgotten to make a photobook for Bertie after our European Adventure! I finished it last night and ordered it from Shutterfly.com. For $30 I uploaded 30 pictures, picked the layout and they’ll send me a lovely softcover book of my road trip. Makes a great holiday gift!

Shutterfly allows you to customize your photo book just the way you want.

Mercedes-Benz Geography Perfection in Atlanta!

I moved to Atlanta many years ago simply to avoid the snow. I did not know that I was putting myself in the perfect position for all things Mercedes-Benz!

  • Germany: The vehicles arriving from Germany dock in Brunswick, GA. That is just 300 miles south of my dealership! 5 hours from “VPC Ready” to “in Stock!”
  • Alabama: The vehicles built at the factory in Tuscaloosa are just 225 miles west. They get on a car carrier and arrive a few hours later! Same day service!
  • South Carolina: Sprinter and Metris vehicles arrive in Ladson, SC for re-assembly and then ship just 300 miles to me! The Chicken Tax can’t slow us down!
  • Headquarters: MBUSA just relocated to Atlanta! This means I get to see the occasional test vehicle sneaking around, my training events will be close, and we will be a Mercedes-Benz town. Nothing beats community involvement for brand awareness!

Thanks Atlanta for turning out to be the center of Mercedes-Benz in the US!

Mercedes-Benz Stadium Atlanta

Did you know that Mercedes-Benz only has three other stadiums? It just so happens that Atlanta is getting the fourth! As one of my clients said “I am so glad that my car is now supporting my team!”

Remote Start via mbrace for Your Mercedes-Benz

Starting in Model Year 2016, many Mercedes-Benz models are equipped with remote start through the mbrace system! GLE-Class, GLC-Class, most S-Class and the C-Class sedan are ready to go! Other models will be added down the line. This cannot be retrofit!

There are a number of functions you can do with mbrace:

And here are the things it can do:

Once you have hit remote start the signal runs through two secure servers and your vehicle starts:

Now, where did you leave your Mercedes-Benz?
