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!
When you login to the mbrace app on your phone you will see this screen: (click on image to see larger)
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?
The weekend Atlanta Classic Cars is celebrating 40 years in business! Pretty amazing! As a part of our celebration we have brought in a selection of classic Mercedes-Benz vehicles as well as a couple of superstar SLS gullwings. Hover over the image to see the year and model.
The showroom is open on Saturday if you would like to take a look. This is a limited time engagement as all of the beauties go back to their owners next week!
I have often used the Active Park Assist to pull into parallel spots but I have not used the system to back into a spot before. Now I have! Please share and subscribe to my new YouTube channel!

The Mercedes-Benz International website is a great place to spend an afternoon!
They recently did a feature on AMG engine builder Michael Kubler, who I’ve always followed on Instagram.
On my most recent European Delivery adventure I picked up a 2015 Mercedes-Benz S550 coupe. This vehicle is just one of a handful of vehicles (AMG and S-Class) that qualifies for a special Center of Excellence Delivery experience! The CoE is in the same building as the standard pick-up but offers a few extras…
First, your new car is unveiled to you by your personal guide in a secluded section of the building! This guide will spend as much time as you would like going over the features of the vehicle and helping you prepare for your trip. He helped us enter several navigation destinations, arrange the luggage and then personally pulled the vehicle outside for departure!
Second, amazing food! The Center of Excellence service a gorgeous four course lunch in one of the showrooms while you take in the beauty of the surrounding vehicles. There were several other couples and families taking delivery at the same time but it felt like we had the place to ourselves. They were also able to quickly provide a vegetarian option even though it was not on the menu.
Finally, because it is in the same building as the standard deliveries you can still take pictures with the giant star, take the factory tour and shop in the gift shop. It is special, but not entirely separate from the standard experience.
When arranging your European Delivery of an AMG or S-Class your salesperson must make a special request for the Center of Excellence. There are a limited number available each day so requesting early is important.
I can personally handle your European Delivery experience wherever you live in the country. Call me!

Are you a member of the Mercedes-Benz Club of America? I have a great reason for you to join! You could win a Mercedes AMG GT S! There are lots of other reasons but let’s focus on the amazing raffle price for 2015!
Once you are a member of the MBCA you simply log into the website and buy as many $50 tickets as you want! I bought two. I’m feeling exceptionally lucky. Then, when I win, I simply contact the dealer of my choice (me) and place my order!
If you happen to win instead of me, you can order your AMG GT S from me and we both kind of win!
If you decide to join the Club use my reference number and I get a free month of membership. C119523
I have had a few questions about this vehicle recently. It is currently a concept car and is not scheduled to be produced. The concepts and technologies are being tested and shown as a demonstration of what could be…down the line. It looks like the future is a little early!
