#47 of 1300 Wahoo!C230 Coupe absolutely rocks!

Just got my very own brand spanking new 2004 C230 Sports Coupe. Excited as hell! Here is the low-down:
Interior: Blk Heated Leather seats.
Options: Auto, Panorama sun-roof, 6CD Chgr, Bose system (8 speakers), Rain-sensing wipers, Bi-xenon head-lights, 17" wheels with alloy rims.
Got the car for $29,174 with 0.9% APR for 60 mos. Bought the extended warranty - 7 yrs, 100,000 miles for abt $2800.
I used this message board/forum and edmunds.com in general in order to get a good deal. So a BIG THANK YOU to every one of you for posting your experiences!
The car is a blast to drive. Tremendous power. Feels more powerful than the advertised 192 HP.
Bought the car at Bellevue Barrier Mercedes. I had the best time shopping there. The staff was extremely courteous, and willing to show you a wide range of cars, and negotiate a good deal. Will post some more observations abt the car once I get over the euphoria!

Are dealers offering much discounts with the new 05 models? The best I have been able to do so far is $500 off MSRP.

I'm working with a dealer on a c-320 - 2004 sedan. What is a good price to pay?

I just got a brand new 2004 C320 Silver metallic for $33150. It took a bit of haggling, but since the dealers are already cleaning for the 2005 models, I guess they are willing to move them out.
#54 of 1300 My 2004 C230K Sports Sedan

I'd like to share my experience with all of the Edmunds.com's friends here.
Traced Edmunds.com and other sources for couple months, utilized Cardirect.com too, and test drove couple times at dealers. Finally figured out what I really wanted. I live at North California (Bay Area). The deal was made on the last day of June:
2004 C230K Sports Sedan(4Dr), Stick Shift (6sp), Black ext (not metallic, saved $600) and Ash Int. 6CD Changer, Sunroof Package.
Price of the car: $26,700
Doc Fee: $45
Some Tire Fee: $5
Tax: $2,000 more (don't remember the exact number)
License Fee: $225 (dealer estimated, will return extra if there is any)
Total out door: $29,185 for the car
Bought 4yr/50,000mi Luxury tire/wheel road disaster insurance $299
Then the total is $29,484.
Also was offered 7yr/100,000mi ext warranty at $2,380. I'll buy it soon.
I bought a 2000 BMW 328i before. Two things we don't like:
1. Automatic Transmission (even w/Steptronic)
2. Black int. leather.
Now we got all we want. Ash leather is a beauty! It matches so well with the Aluminum trim. Black ext with the 3-pointed chrome star, man! Itís a dream coming true. Me and my wife are just politely fighting for drive. The car was originally for me, but she has already moved our two carseats from our MDX to the 230K. Well, at least she happy, me happy.
Here, I want to thank all of you with your posts. I also want to give my special appreciation to Edmunds.com. I am your loyal reader since 1999.
Thank you all again with our love. You all have a happy I-Day!
