Spoooooooky Halloween News!

By Scot "give me candy" Hinckley

It's Halloween! Bring us candy! Actually, the only one of us that went all out and got dressed up is Mary (baseball player I think) so you can bring her candy, since she's earned it.

But enough with all the pagan stuff, the REAL news is that our very own Troy Coachman is on vacation (gasp!) in sunny San Diego (double gasp!). In the meantime, Kris Capps will be performing all the Finance Manager duties here at our Airport Way location.

Oh, and the Seattle Auto Show is coming up fast. We'll have 7 cars there, including the new SLS Roadster (click here for a short and sweet article with photos by the guys at Top Gear).

Seriously though, bring us candy. We're really into candy down here at the Airport Way location. Just see Samantha at the front and she'll distribute it fairly.


Thanks for reading, more to come.

The Phil Smart Service Department can inspect and recondition your Mercedes-Benz headlamps giving you peace of mind while you're on the road during the darkest days of the year.

Contact our Service Department at either our Pike Street or Airport Way locations in Seattle to find out more about headlamp inspection and reconditioning.
