Since it’s that most wonderful time of the year, and since every member of Mercedes-Benz World is on our list, we’re gifting to you our collection of the best Spy Shots from the past year, all wrapped up for the holiday.


BMW, as of late, has focused its efforts not on its top tier of cars, but rather on its ever-growing portfolio of niche-segment vehicles for which, literally, no one’s been asking. The very opposite of what Mercedes has been doing. Until recently. Read more about these developments after the jump.


Forum member AMGAffalterbach is looking for a new Benz. He’s narrowed the candidates down to a 2014 E550 4MATIC and a 2012 E63 AMG. After the jump, find out which big factor can potentially affect his final decision.


I get the feeling that when Autoblog tested the Mercedes-Benz S550 Coupe, the Billy Joel song “Just the Way You Are” was playing through its speakers. In the site’s review of the S63 AMG Coupe, it basically tells the less-powerful two-door, “Don’t go changing to try and please me.” Autoblog seems to love it just the way it is. That’s not to say the publication hates the S63, though. See what I mean after the jump.


If you happen to celebrate Christmas, I hope this year’s turns out to be your best one yet. May it be relaxing and full of love, laughter, and delicious food. Kick your feet back and enjoy it. Just know that Mercedes-Benz is probably going to start a recall around the day after, Dec. 26. Should you happen to own a 2014 or 2015 E250 BlueTec, E250 BlueTec 4Matic, GLK250 4Matic BlueTec, or 2015 ML250 4Matic BlueTec, you stand a good chance of being affected by it.
