Dave Needs Help from Readers to Name New Blog Category

I need some direction here, maybe you can help… What should I name this new category on the blog?

I’m planning on using this category, which I’ve aptly named “Help Name This Category”, go figure…  to post interesting, unique, nice, sought after, cars that are any marque other than Mercedes-Benz.  I’ve been sitting here for the better part of an hour trying to come up with a good name, now it’s 17 minutes past midnight and I’m going to call it a night.

I post interesting trade ins and other cars I think people might find interesting in the “New Arrivals” box at the top of the page, I’m thinking of going strictly Mercedes-Benz there… new and pre owned (can we call them used cars among friends?), used Mercedes-Benz.

It’s tough because I want this to be a catch all category for those really good deals, like a late model BMW convertible, or a 2009 Honda Accord that someone just traded in that you could save big money on over a new one… lots of regular cars, like these two Volvo Cross Country wagons that lasted less than a week in our inventory, but I also want to include cool, high end stuff, like the Aston Martin from last week. That’s why my initial thought of “Bargain Basement” won’t work. I was thinking… “Cars with Character” but not everything that ends up there isn’t neccesarily going to have a lot of character (Honda Accord?).

Maybe it ends up just being… “Other Stuff” – I was just hoping for something a little more catchy, but not too kitschy.

Use the comment box at the bottom of this page… if I use your name for the category I’ll post an entry of your car… or the car you’re still waiting to buy… or the car you want to buy someday.


2014 Mercedes E class Video Comparison! Differences Between 2014 Mercedes Benz E class E350 Sport and Luxury Models

Explore the differences between the 2014 Mercedes Benz E class Sport and Luxury models with this video from Dave Knows Cars! The new 2014 Mercedes Benz E classes are arriving at dealerships across the country. Mercedes Benz is offering something new for the 2014 model year, in conjunction with the serious E class facelift, they’ve started to offer two different models… A Luxury model and a Sport model.

The differences between the two cars are largely cosmetic, much like the C class cars from 2008 – present. There are slight suspension differences between the two cars, the Sport model sits several millimeters lower than the sport model and has slightly stiffer suspension, although the difference in ride quality is minimal, they are very similar.

They are identical in terms of dimensions and size, the two cars are differentiated by different body styling packages and wheels. The video here clearly demonstrates all the exterior differences between the cars.. from the front grilles to the rear tailpipes (or lack thereof on the Luxury model).

You can see by the photos of the original window stickers (below) of the cars featured in the video that there is no price difference between Sport and Luxury models. They cost the same, you simply decide whether you want a Sport model or a Luxury model.
