My name is Igor Benderskiy. I have worked for the various Mercedes-Benz dealerships in Southern California since 2001. My position has varied over the years: I was an Electrician, a Salesman, Internet Sales Manager, Lease Retention Manager, Fleet Manager, Finance Manager, Closer and Sales Manager. I was awarded “Mercedes-Benz Master Certified” by Mercedes-Benz USA back in 2006, and I was one of the 1st to get the “Master Certification“. That’s where “MBZ Master” name came from, but actually I’ve been always a Mercedes-Benz fan since my childhood.

Due to my extensive experience with Mercedes-Benz brand, I accumulated a lot of product knowledge and a lot of loyal customers over the years. So I created this website to share some of my knowledge to stay connected with my customers as well as any Mercedes-Benz owners, anyone who works for any other Mercedes-Benz dealership, also any Mercedes-Benz enthusiast or simply anyone who is interested – all in one place! Share, Follow and Contact.

I post a lot of information, photos and I also personally make videos mostly related to Mercedes-Benz vehicles. It’s about the latest model information, new features, tutorials on “How To” use and operate the vehicles, as well as Reviews, Shopping Guides, Comparisons, Financial Tips and Tricks and also just personal Advises. My information is the most accurate and authoritative.

  1. Suddenly my temperature gauge move from 90 to red and then comes back i.e fluctuating. I just top-up coolant.

  2. watched your YouTube video about setting memory for passenger mirror to view curb for reverse parking. Is this feature available on EQB 2023? If so, how do you access?

      1. Thank you for sharing your knowledge. I have a question I cannot find an answer to concerning the Music Register on a 2015MBGLK350. QUESTION # 1: is there any way to transfer all the albums in my register to (not from, but TO) an external device like my iPhone 11.
        #2: How can I delete individual albums or individual tracks on an album, in the Music Register.

        (P.S. I ask these music register questions because I have hundreds of classic albums/songs on my register. But my car was vandalized once and thief took off with my case of actual CD’s in the car. They are irreplaceable but all were recorded in the Register. So…now I have to transfer the Register to an external device like my iPhone pro max). Can you Gael with this? Thank you so much for your help.

        1. Did you try to use Import/Export feature in Settings to backup everything to a USB drive? You can delete individual tracks by clicking Rename/Delete button.

  3. Hello

    Your videos are fantastic, thank you! I recently inherited a 2016 GLE 350 and would like to upgrade the halogen lowbeams with LEDs. The dealer will not do this, what is your reccomendation?


    1. The dealership won’t put anything non-Mercedes. So, you need to find a local place that specializes in it. LED lights may need a different amperage, so you’d need to add resistance. Most electricians can do it.

  4. Hello Igor,

    Recently, I purchased a 2014 GL450, which came with only 1 key. I purchased a used key from a junkyard.
    I have been told that as of the 2013 model year, all Mercedes keys are locked to the original vehicle and cannot be reprogrammed.
    A new key is required and only the dealer can sell and program a new key?

    Is this true?
    Can MBZ provide a service in this area?

    1. Yes, those are high-level security keys. The dealer has to order from MBUSA and program it to your car. You’ll need to show proof that you are the legitimate owner of the vehicle. Also, the key has to be built with a built-inside removable metal valet key that you can use to open the door when the keyfob battery is dead.

  5. Hi Igore-
    I just came across your videos.
    I have a E350 2023
    It has an augmented display (the $350)- but it does not have a dashcam.
    Can I install MB dashcam in it

  6. I need your help. I have a 2016 E400 Coupe NTG5/5.5 and can’t access the engineering menu. I have researched without luck. Please help. I have tried “end call + # + 1”

  7. Hi MBZ Master-
    Thanks for the perfect videos you post. I have a 2016 C300 4matic and wondering if I can add the Distronic plus system to it or not?. Please let me know. Thanks

  8. “Comfort box” is a standalone option. Code D28. You can get it from your local MB dealer. It should also come with the mounting brackets.

    1. The sales rep removed the ‘comfort box’ and ‘installed’ it in my new 2021 E 350 – only attached with the front clasps. But he didn’t remove the horizontal mounting bracket in the back. Do you know if this is a complete assembly only- or can the mounting bracket be purchased separately? The sales rep was not sure if the mounting bracket would fit in the new trunk… many thanks for your quick response…

  9. just found your website and really appreciate your dedication and sharing of information… very valuable !
    Just leased a 2021 E350 and have a question about the installation of a ‘comfort box’ or ‘concealed cargo box’
    installation… can you provide an answer?
