#364 of 1295 Got a call today
Mar 20, 2006 (9:29 pm)
I got a call from the one dealer today that said they are wanting to open negotiations again on the one they came down to 30,400. It is the one with Xenon, etc, I posted above. So I assume they will say 30k with the certified warranty. It sticked new for 36,190 like I said before. I hear th gas mileage is better on the 2005 but that really is not my great motivation. You say the engine and transmission is better on the 2006? Man I am just learning so anything helps. I knew the 2005 to me seemed a little noisy and not quite as smooth as I would have liked. They said the V6 is smoother. You know I think you are right. The 2006 seems good. We just need to decide what options. Probably the sunroof package, automatic transmission and cd changer and I think that is about it. Maybe Peuter paint color but that adds 680 for metallic paint. That is dumb to me but it is what it is.
Oh, I just saw an ad for a 2005 about 3 hours from where I live, sunroof package, cd changer, automatic and they are advertising it for 26,900 with 12,000 miles on it. It is not a Mercedes dealer but they have the records on it and say the car is perfect with a clean car fax. It is silver with the light grey interior. I don't care for the light grey interior as my wife is going to probably be messy and the dark will be more forgiving. Besides I will have to keep the thing clean. Light grey stains so easily. ALso the light grey interior looks weird from the outside with the blue tinted windows. All of the Mercedes salesman have told me that everyone else says the same thing so they are used to hearing that. Anyway, the price is way lower than the one I was looking at here but it has less options.
Yeah, even though. I think the new is looking better. With 1,000 off of invoice, I don't think I can beat that for a new 2006. If so I would glady jump on it. This one is 1,100 miles from my home so If I flew then drove it back, I have expense and hassle or pay 850.00 for them to ship. Decisions, Decisions. If anyone knows of a dealership that will beat this deal please let me know! On the new I mean.
#365 of 1295 Lease mb c230
Apr 11, 2006 (4:10 pm)
Dear car guy, thanks so much for all of the help on my vw and many family memebers cars. A dear friend of mine is looking to lease a mb c230 and I can't get any straight answers from any dealer. What is mb Financial's Acc fee? Next is there any dealer cash combindable with the subsudized lease program? And what is the base money factor for 27 months or 39 months. By the way this is in California.
#366 of 1295 Price paid for C350 LS
Apr 21, 2006 (2:43 pm)
Hello, I'm looking to purchase a C350LS in Socal, what is the typical price for these? If above invoice, how much above? I understand there is a $3000 dealers incentive right now on these cars, what is my expected price for one?

Not sure I can answer your question, but I purchased a C280 - which only comes in the luxury. It was complicated because I traded in. Based on my experience, though, there's serious regional differences - so make sure you find answers from someone local.

I got a quote from one of the dealers in Socal for $2000 under invoice plus $3000 dealer incentive. Seems like a steal, what does everyone else think?

Well, if I had it to do over again, I'd drive to SoCal for it

Hi, I'm also currently getting prices from dealers (though for the C230). I too am getting quotes for $2000 under invoice, but what does it mean "$2000 under invoice plus $3000 dealer incentive"? Does that translate to a total of $5,000 off the MSRP? Does anyone know if the same dealer incentive is available right now for the C230? Finally, in So.Cal., what should I expect to be charged for "documentation fees"?

$2000 off invoice + $3000 incentive currently on C350s, so $5000 total off invoice, not MSRP.

Wow, so this would make the car around $30k?? Then maybe I should be looking at the C350 rather than the C230, since the best prices I'm getting for the C230 is just a few bucks less than the price you got quoted for the C350! Which dealer gave you that quote if you don't mind me asking? I'm in So Cal too. Has anyone else gotten better quotes for the C230? Thank you!!

I'm in SoCal too and I am looking to purchase a 2006 c230 or c280... But what is this deal with the c350? Is this for a paticular dealer or for all of socal... Any info would be greatly apperiated. I might just jump at getting the c350 for $5000 off invoice... Thanks!
