    Merceds August sales

    Relevant USA monthly figures for Mercedes Benz for August are copied below (can't post the URL)

    Note that the SL sales for the month are 604 versus 75 a year ago, an increase of 705%, while SLK sales for the month are 373 versus 136 a year ago, an increase of 174%.

    I wish we knew the "take rate" of Magic Sky Control for these 2 cars. I'm guessing that it is somewhere between 10-20%

    There must be drivers of these cars around the US now with Magic Sky Control. It sure seems like MB or even REFR could do some testimonial advertising from the owners.

    • BASED ON THE REVENUES FROM PILKINGTON, I WOULD

      ESTIMATE THE TAKE RATE AT A MUCH HIGHER FIGURE.

      GOOD POST. THE "C" CLASS WILL GENERATE ENOUGH

      TO MAKE RFI PROFITABLE FROM MERCEDES ALONE.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • If REFR had any good news they would have released it. Take away less than your numbers. Remember when Mercedes was using RFI glass in their touring bus. Whatever happend to that? And with all the new Boeing planes what happened to that. Dont you know a scam when you see one.
