I just bought a 2007 ML 350 from Pembroke Pines Mercedes last month. They were very good to deal with. I would highly recommend my sales person if you want a name. Here are the details of my purchase. I don't think there are any 2007's left. Your deal sounds pretty fair to me.
I love the car.
Premium 1 Pkg
6 CD changer
Heated Front Seats
Invoice : $46,316
My Price $44,495 + TTT+ $600 Dealer fee.

"Any suggestions or tips (especially on how to handle dealers)?"
IMO, the best way is to make an offer and be prepared to walk.
They will eventually just say yes or no. Be prepared to walk out is the key. If they don't counter with a lower quote then it's in your court to buy or not.

That's a good deal, 5k off is what I'm looking for from my local dealer on a 2008 ML350 Edition 10 while a distant dealer is willing to give 6k off.

I just did a price check on your exact car on Edmunds and it shows the MSRP to be $49,045 and the Invoice ar $45,665. I was wondering whether you paid the $775 destination charge and how you got the dealer to do $2,000 below invoice?
If there are no 2007's left that means i'd have to get a 2008, and the price has gone up on those over 2007. However, I think the DVD navigation and the P1 package are now integrated. The dealer I spoke with was called Lance Shetrompf and he was pretty persistent. Couple things came up so I haven't gotten back to him yet about it. Did you deal with him?
Also, what is TTT?

TTT = tax, title, and tag
(I'm almost certain this is what it means)

Yes I paid the $775. My invoice was 49,745.
TTT = Tax, Tag, Title
You are correct, in 2007 model Premium Package 1 did not include the Navigation system which I paid separately for.
I specifically wanted to buy one of the last 2007's that was left. I went to 3 other South Fl Mercedes dealers and there were no 2007's left. I'm sure that was a big motivating factor for me getting it 2K under invoice.
I also traded in a 2004 CLK 320 convertible. I'm sure they got me for a few dollars there.
I dealt with Ariel.

If there's anyone in the NJ area looking for an ML350 Edition 10 or even a regular ML350, ML550 etc. shoot me an email SagarPatel1gmail.com I'll put you in contact with the right guys...
I bought mine locally and payed a little more in return for better service, loaners and more importantly a peace of mind for the duration of my ownership (which usually runs 10 years)
...I got about a good deal off MSRP from my local guy while I was getting more off from the farther dealer which I passed on (mind you both quotes were on a New 08 Black ML350 Edition 10 with MSRP of $52,705)...
Let me know if anyone in the NJ area is looking for one immediately

2008 ml350 Editon 10
I was quoted MSRP $52,500 w/ prem option 1 & bixeon lights
Dealer willing to sell for $50,900 in S. E. Pa
I think that is still to high.
What should I expect to pay?
