Dealer sent me a new freebie today.

In a DVD case, came a white micro fiber towel. Not the same kind I find in the shops, this felt almost as if it was made out of silk.

Along with it came a letter that asked me to use it to clean the interior (dash and doors, you know that black material which gets easily dirty with dust and smudge marks) and they asked me to write back with my impressions on it. Oh, it must be used with a little bit of water (to dampen the cloth first).

Guess I'll do a complete interior cleanup procedure this weekend [;)]

Hi Shinigami, didn't you get one supplied with your car, in a DVD case in the centre console? - I did.

No, I only got it now :
They seem to be sending me stuff afterwards. For example, they will send me a 4 times a year MB magazine with MB tech, innovations etc...

It works quite well for me to remove any build up of dirt on my grey seats. Just rubs it right off every other month. The grey actually looks cleaner and nicer then the black parts of my interior which always look sorta dusty/dirty.

My bros been getting the mercedes magazine and other postal material ever since complaining to head office about a dealership experience.

I get the magazine but I also got (about 2 months after my car purchase) a Mercedes-Benz, black leather travel-wallet (really nice). Inside I found my owner's identification card.

Really nice touch :D

I have been getting the magazine ever since I had a CLK 2 years ago, and the white cloth was in my SLK when I purchased it. Now I am just waiting for the leather case!!

The silk cloth was in my car when I got it. The leather wallet came about six weeks later. Still haven't got Mercedes magazine (bought car in November). Should I be?

Goodies to date: Multi-layer gormet cake, complete with helium filled ballons (upon delivery), a MERCEDES BLVD parking sign, basket o' cheer delivered by courrier (2 days after delivery), 20% across the board discount coupon for accessories (no restrictions), the ultra smooth card holder wallet (I think this was made from the bellies of baby seals gently clubbed to death), but no magazine yet.

I got the towel in the car, a couple of Mercedes silver keyrings with the valet attachment and 20% discount on the plexiglass windscreen.

I have only had my car a month so hopefully more goodies will be forth coming. The dealer has called twice and I have received 2 letters from the dealer asking how I was enjoying my car[8D]

Car cover??? Isn't that a couple of hundred bucks? Is Fletcher Jones in Newport your dealer?

Yes got the car at Fletcher Jones. When I bought a C-class in 2001 they also through in the car cover. I don't know about the rest of everyone's experiences(although I've read some horror stories on the forum) but they treat me like a king every time I go in.
