Diesels are Clean and Green!

There was a great article at AOL Autos today about the advances that have been made in diesel technology. Maybe with enough good publicity everyone will come to understand diesel and love it as much as I do!

Highlights from the article…

“One automaker at the forefront of the clean-diesel movement is Mercedes-Benz. The E320 BLUETEC boasts 40 percent better fuel mileage than a comparable gasoline-powered model, and its EPA city/highway rating of 27/37 mpg means it can cruise more than 700 miles on a single tank of fuel, said Patrik Borenius, manager of advanced product planning for Mercedes.

With a city/highway rating of 21/28 mpg, the R320 CDI gets 32 percent better fuel economy, while the ML320 CDI sport utility (rated at 21/27 mpg) provides a 26 percent improvement. Both CDI models have a cruising range of over 600 miles before refueling.”The new clean-diesel engines provide three key benefits,” Borenius said. “It’s a more fuel-efficient technology, so the customer gets better gas mileage; it offers environmental benefits by producing less carbon dioxide and greenhouse gasses, and it’s one of the answers to the energy issue, in terms of reducing our dependence on foreign oil.”

In April, the E320 BLUETEC was named the “2007 World Green Car” at the 2007 New York International Auto Show.

Mercedes R-Class Limo

I was so excited to see this R500 based limo pull into the service lane today! We had a big crowd outside admiring this slightly longer R-Class. This beauty can seat 12 comfortably, carry cargo, serve drinks, play movies and even make it around a corner! If you’re looking to arrive in style, the owner is an Atlanta Classic Cars customer and his website is www.WorldLimoATL.com.

Great New Floor Liners Available for the SUVs!

I know that a lot of you like to put something over your plush floormats. In the past, the all-weather rubber floormats were the best option. However, they were heavy and didn’t really cover all of the areas that needed covering.

Well, I have a solution! These new flexible plastic floor liners specifically match the precise contours of the floor of your ML, GL, or R and feature high sides to contain dirt and liquids for the best possible carpet protection. Set includes four tailored floor liners. Available in black, grey and beige. ( I recommend the black no matter what color your interior is.) They are also availabe for the 3rd row of the GL-Class!

Please let me know if you need a set and I will make sure they are in stock. A set of 4 is under $200!
