Atlanta would be kind of a long haul from Tucson but definately doable! Besides I used to live in Plano so I could pit there and hit warp factor 7 to Atlanta! Nurse wheel me to the gameroom!

I don't know what could be arranged at Road Atlanta or ATL Motor Speedway but I know for certain that every fri pm and sat am/day you can run at the Commerce dragstrip for a minimal charge. If we could gather enough cones/entrants a autoX course might also be doable at some parking lots that spring to mind....

If we're going to meet in Atlanta can we rent the tack at Road Atlanta? That would be a blast!

Isn't it customary for them to have FREE EATS at grand openings?

That FOR SURE will ensure that the grand opening will be attended by all!!

We will have BLACKTOP! WmHarlow so succinctly put it:

Atlanta in the spring sounds good, that's usually when we head to Myrtle Beach. Nothing like a little detour to keep the Benz on the road a while longer

It would be nice we all could make it. I remeber watching "Automobiles" on the HISTORY CHANNEL a couple of years ago and they made a big deal when everyone around the country drove to Bowling Green, Kentucky to celebrate the Corvette in a Corvette.

I saw we rock that world and everyone who has a Benz meet in Atlanta next Spring. I have to say that everyone on this board has been friendly, funny, and very helpful. I would be proud to meet ya'll.

I think ma lil' SEL can haul 6 hours southeast!

Everyone has their preferences, but Vegas has the adult/child entertainment, great convention halls and a nice desert to play in.

Isn't CNN based in Atlanta? An MB meeting in CNN's backyard. This could be the beginning of something big...

well I guess I could make it if I knew which day it was in the spring.. probably a long drive from Los Angeles, so might just have to fly and rent a benz in atlanta. ehehe

I would love to take a tour of the shop that will pave the way for the future of Mercedes benz service.

My service guy here in LA is really good, used to be the manager of Beverly Hills Mercedes, now works for his own shop called Mr. MB Motors out in Reseda, CA, a short drive for me to get to him, and I trust him to do good work on my car. have known him for over 10 years too.

I remember when the mercedes dealer told us we needed a new tranny in the 560 sel we had, took it to my guy, it needed a hose and a few other things. dealer wanted $3000 or more, he charged for the repairs $300 or less. now thats what I call good service.

Whenever I take my car to a dealership for service I always cringe at what they tel me then I go get a second opinion before I have any work done. I find that most dealerships will only replace parts and not fix something even if its as simple as a hose, but thats just from my experience.

In anycase, I look forward to seeing the most talked about mercedes service center on the web. and its not even finsihed being nuilt yet. Now thats what I call good word of mouth...

Almost makes me wanna move to atlanta just so I can have em service my car.
