Mercedes-Benz Club of the ACT annual Concours
Sunday, 20th September 2015 is the date for the 40th Annual Concours

recent years, the event will be an integral part of the Shannons German
Autofest. A combined display from all the German car clubs in the ACT.
The ACT club event attracts entrants from all over Australia with
Canberra's superb spring weather and the nearby Floriade Festival both
excellent reasons to attend. The Concours is being held on the southern

Following the launch of the new website last month we have had some great
feedback. A few additional changes have been made to iron out the issues
that were reported to us. We are also working on two new pages. The first
is a list of all the country dealer codes. The other is a list of
service reset methods for those of you who service your own cars. This
page should be done in a few weeks.
We have also added another brand to our page explaining where
Mercedes-Benz parts are really made. You can find it here.
Cars for Sale.
