2016 AMG Driving Academy Schedule Announced!

You want to go to the AMG Driving Academy!

If you purchased an AMG in the last year you are eligible to go for free! If you did not buy an AMG last year, pay for a day on the track and then you’ll buy an AMG for sure and then you can go for free next year!

Here is the link for the 2016 schedule. Coming back to Road Atlanta for my convenience!

Mercedes-Benz SUV Dog Net or Cargo Divider

I was trying these out for a customer today in a GLE-Class and thought someone else might be interested.

1 – Wire Mesh Divider Part Number A1668600042

This is a super heavy duty divider! It took two people to get it positioned in the car and is a bear to screw in. However, if you plan to leave it in full time it is very clean looking and would certainly keep everything in the cargo area contained! Approximate cost: $500

2 – Old Dog Net from 2013 or so

I am guessing everyone who had an ML in 2013 has one of these kicking around the garage because it came standard back then. It is out of production now but I am sure you could find one on Ebay or Craig’s list. It is cloth mesh on the top and straps on the bottom, folds in half for easy storage and would allow objects to pass under with the seats folded flat.

There you go! Two containment options!

Multi Contour Seats Not Working? Possible Fix!

A client called to say that his Drive Dynamic Multi Contour Seats only worked sometimes. The drivers’ seat would work for a while, the passenger seat would work for a while but neither would work consistently.

After a little fiddling and some road testing I figured out that when the side bolsters were manually inflated over level 6 it prevented the bolsters from inflating around corners! Interesting!

I fixed it!

Mercedes-Benz Comparison: 2015 GLK350 vs. 2016 GLC300

The all-new GLC300 is scheduled to arrive in December! One dropped by today and someone happened to park a GLK next to it! I thought it was the perfect opportunity to so a side-by-side comparison.

The new GLC is the direct replacement for the outgoing GLK. The new nomenclature tells you it is the SUV aligned with the C-Class sedan. It is larger, plusher and less boxy than the GLK.

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!
