Thank you for visiting the Los Angeles section of the Mercedes-Benz Club of America (MBCA). MBCA is comprised of 84 sections that span the U.S. and Canada. The Los Angeles section has numerous events throughout the year and this website is here to keep you abreast of these activities. Our goal is to have something for everyone. Social gatherings, car shows, driving events, tech sessions - if we're not doing it, and it's an event you'd like to see happen, email us and we'll see if it's possible.

If you're not a member, take a look around and see what we have to offer. Across the top of each page is a blue navigation bar that can be used to visit the different areas of this site. If you like what you see, please consider joining the Los Angeles section. Our goal is to add to your driving experience.

From The President's Desk

S omething for everyone . . . . . .

Our club has been very fortunate. This year, we’ve already put on many events. And there are many more to come. How fortunate we are to live in Southern California, where the weather is great, so we can do events year-round. We have beaches and mountains within short reach and we have numerous entertainment venues, museums, etc, allowing us to put on a diverse set of events. SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE!

Much of the credit goes to our exceptional board (and a few member volunteers) who work tirelessly to find and put on such great events. So, to all of you who helped us this year - THANK YOU!

This year so far, we’ve had the following events.

  • January 7th Planning Event
  • Feb 5th 3-Point Social Club get together in Woodland Hills
