Mercedes-Benz Garmin Map Pilot Navigation Video

Here is a quick demo of the Garmin Map Pilot for the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, CLA-Class and CLS-Class. This is a very well integrated system and I highly recommend it.

Mercedes-Benz Collision Repair at Atlanta Classic cars

Did you know that Atlanta Classic Cars has the only Mercedes-Benz Authorized Collision Center in Georgia? We fix all kinds of damage...

Mercedes-Benz First Class Wheel & Tire Protection

mercedes curb damage

This wheel was destroyed by a very deep pothole. It broke the rim, flattened the tire and made it impossible for a new tire to seal properly. Mercedes-Benz First Class Wheel & Tire Protection replaced them both at no charge!

Wheel & Tire, as we commonly refer to it, is just one of many protection plans that Mercedes-Benz Financial Services offers to our customers. You do not have to lease or finance to take advance of these products. As a salesperson it is important to me that my customers have the coverage that matters to them. A flat tire in your new car is sad...but getting it fixed at no charge is helpful. Your teenager curbing two wheels is sad...but getting it touched up at no charge is awesome!

I have countless stories of customers who would have been out thousands of dollars if they had not purchased Wheel & Tire. And I have plenty of customers that just have the curb rash touched up at no charge every time they are in the neighborhood. There are lots of benefits!

Ask your local finance manager about Wheel & Tire Protection Plus as well as the other products from Mercedes-Benz Financial!

Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class Accessories – Cargo Tray and Hangar

GLA250 Atlanta

The Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class has only been available for a few months and I am just starting to get feedback from my early adopters. It seems to be a hit! This client did his research early and asked for a couple of additions before he picked it up.

The Cargo Tray is an excellent addition to the vehicle. The 2" tall lip means that anything you spill will be contained. The first time they handed it to me at the parts desk I was sure it was the wrong one. It was huge! The GLA250 really does have an impressive amount of storage.

Mercedes coat hangar

The Coat Hangar works for most Mercedes-Benz models (must have headrest stalks) and is a popular option with doctors. I guess balling up your lab coat in the back seat is a no-no.

Also, I just saw an announcement that the all-weather liners for the GLA-Class, CLA-Class and B-Class are now available.

  • A117 680 2800 - Front, 2 Pieces, Black $110
  • A117 684 0600 - Rear - 1 Piece, Black $70

Drive Kit Plus for iPhone 5 5C and 5S for Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class

The Drive Kit Plus is available as a dealer installed option for many Mercedes-Benz models. This accessory allows you to control many of your iPhone features from the vehicle controls.

Mercedes-Benz has just announced that the new Drive Kit Plus for the iPhone 5 is now available as a VPC installed option for the CLA-Class for $700! This will save you labor charges at the dealership and make sure it is ready to go when the car arrives.

Also, VPC installed options can be added to the vehicle after it has already been built, but before it gets to the port. So, if you have a CLA-Class on the way and decide the Drive Kit Plus would be a good option for you, your dealer should be able to add it on!

Heated and Cooled Cupholders in the 2014 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class!

GL heated/cooled cup holders

The first of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz GL-Classes have arrived at the dealership. They are nearly identical to the 2013 models...but there are a couple of additions. The heated/cooled cupholders are part of the Premium 1 Package on the GL350/GL450 and standard on the GL550. I had seen this option few times in the past but never with the additional blue for cool and red for heat lighting scheme! It would look even more amazing at night with a clear container of liquid being cooled. Someone send me a picture...we can't keep a GL on the lot long enough to take a picture at night!

New Cargo Tray for 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class

GL cargo tray

I have been using the 2011 M-Class cargo tray in the back of GL-Class vehicles with the third row seat folded flat. It turns out that Mercedes-Benz just released a better solution...the Cargo Tray for the GL-Class! This tray is perfectly molded to every contour of the cargo area and has small doors to allow access to the tie downs.

Atlanta Classic Cars installed our first Illuminated Star on a 2014 Mercedes-Benz E350 today! I was worried it would be a little too flashy but it is well done and fairly subtle. It really does add a WOW factor the the vehicle! It was hard to take good pictures in the daytime but I did want to show how the housing for the bulbs is a full star and circle behind the chrome emblem.
