Welcome to the website of the Vancouver Island Section of the MBCA. We have 85+ members, most of whom are in Victoria at the south end of the Island. The Section organizes ten to twelve events per year, with a wide variety: technical events at the dealers, driving events, an annual theatre outing in Chemainus, wine tours and other events designed to appeal to drivers and passengers in our favourite cars. We also have several articles and videos on car behaviour and care included on the website. Benefits include significant discounts on new cars, service and parts at our two dealerships. Three Point Motors in Victoria and Mercedes Benz Nanaimo in mid-island both are full participants in the dealer discount program with the MBCA and with Mercedes-Benz Canada. We also present two trophies to our members each year, one for maximum event participation in each year (Enthusiast's Trophy) and one for long-term service to the Section (Chemainus Trophy). Both are accompanied by gift certificates from Three Point Motors, which can be used for parts, service or merchandise at the dealer. The Section publishes a Newsletter monthly, which includes upcoming events, technical articles, new model reviews, articles on Mercedes Benz activities and history of the marque. The Star magazine from the National Office is sent to members six times a year. The magazine and its editor have won many awards for publishing excellence and it is one of the major membership benefits. All available benefits are at: http://www.mbca.org/member-benefits.
