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

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.

Edition 10 is a limited 10 anniversary edition ML, only available in the 350. There are only 1000 of them being made for the US and can be bought in only Artic white or Obsidian black. They feature some unqiue touches etc along with a nice set of options. Here's an article with pictures etc. about the car

Send me an email at SagarPatel1gmail.com if you're interested in the car. Assuming the it's still available from my guy, I can get it for you under invoice from the dealer I know in North Jersey, I passed on the offer because he was too far from me and bought locally.

This reply is less than timely, but I thought I should chime in here. I bought a 2008 diesel ML at the end of August, and I don't think comparing deals or discounts on the diesel vs. the gasser is appropriate, so don't let anyone tell you to hold out on the basis of what their being quoted on a ML350.
Diesel is great in an SUV, which is why I wanted one, but it stll hasn't caught on in a big way in the U.S. That means MB dealers generally have 1 CDI in inventory for every 5-10 gassers, and the supply/demand dynamic is totally different between the two.
My deal was very close to what you were offered and I think it was pretty good. My dealer even made it clear to me that we could be doing a below-invoice deal if I wanted to go with a ML350. But unlike the gas ML350, the diesel version doesn't really have any competitors (yet), so MB dealers can sit back and wait for people like us who want them. Aside from the $1,000 invoice premium, you should expect to pay a little more because of that smaller discount.
