HI: I was looking for a ongoing thread to add my new car buying experience and I spotted yours. First, I always buy rather than lease as I put too many miles on each year. In fact I keep cars until they are 'ready to take out behind the barn and shoot'. My car? a 2006 MB E-350:
Not only is the engine new but the 7 speed tranny is too. We got 30 mpg on a recent trip thru the desert to Tucson!
Any way price; we paid $8,000.00 under msrp. This has several ramifications. If you lease they wont give you such a deal. You will i believe pay the full price and lease off of that. Further any used one like mine will be priced based on the higher price whereas its true value is lower by that $8,000.00 new discount.
In closing, it is a great car. Next time i will get more of the 'bells and whistles' as I trimmed back on this as my first Benz and wasn't sure how much i would like it.

i hope you took it already!
i got $8,000.00 off msrp which is about the same; black E-350 no premium package; gps and 6 cd player only - bare bones. Next time premium package sounds good.

I want the E350 with Premium and Sport.
The national add is for the E350 with Premium for 539 a month for 27 months 10k a year basically. 4,084 down.
What should I be shooting for?
The kicker is that my best friend wants the same car and is coming here for memorial day.
So basically whoever we go to can get 2 sales.
Please give your feedback and experience.

#256 of 1933 Good Deal on E500??
May 18, 2006 (3:01 pm)
Ok, I have a 24 hour loan on an E500 demo in Houston. Its Pewter and Charcoal. Has the Premium package and 5700 miles.... Dealer Demo... Has never been titled. I'm trading a 2000 CLK430... time to back to a 4 door. So far this car is as fast as my CLK and handles almost as well.
List w/ Destination is $64,175. I have them down to about $53,700. PLUS they are maybe going to give me $23-24 for my pristince 6 yr CLK w/ 67000 miles... the best I've been offered so far.
How does $53-54K sound for a demo thats never been titled?
Thanks !! jim
