MB Dealer videos

Gilly was nice enough to cut me a deal on his stash of dealer VHS tapes. I'm working on getting them converted and uploaded them to my YouTube. You can view them on my channel:

I wish Distronic was something you could easily retrofit

Hm does nobody check the video forum?

More tapes uploaded:




This one is really good, tons of different interesting segments like a history of the company and demonstrations of ABS:


More are uploading / processing (It takes a while, each video is about 10gb after capturing!) There are also others I didn't link here, but I'll add them to this playlist:

Sales Video is interesting (funny)- look at those brand new W126's

Most people expect to be treated differently at a MB Dealership.

Ya gotta love that sales training video. I just watched the whole thing, and actually feel like I really learned something about selling cars.

Interesting that the ESP one is still pretty much what everyone is doing today, but MB was doing it long ago.

The cheesy music (and the bass line) in that video also made me want to lose my lunch.

Thanks for posting these.
