More importantly, have you had any problems with your vehicle. Various family members have purchased/leased a Mercedes over the past 4 years and have many electrical problems with various models. I am hesitant to invest in a Mercedes as the quality seems to have gone down since GM bought them out.
I had a 2003 E320 and now a 2007 E350 with no problems (thus far anyway with the 2007).
?GM never bought them out.

And it seemed like both companies' quality declined after the merger. Hopefully on the upswing now.

Hello, and thank you for reading this. I'm new to the forum experience but I have been watching your forum for the last year or so. I've finally worked up to the Mercedes. This will be my first one and I would like make sure I can get the best deal with your help. I've pre-arranged financing at my bank 3.90 for 60m I plan on putting up $18k myself to keep my payment cheap. I've spoken to the manager in Baton Rouge told him I would be paying cash. He offered invoice price and mentioned $3500 cash back if I buy this month. However I am in Military in Bahrain and won't be back until 2nd of November. Would waiting until I got back get me a better change of a deal since the 07's are comming in the next week or so? Or should I make the deal now becuase the cash back program will be over? The TMV price with the options is saying $55k. With the new year comming out can I get it cheaper?, I am willing to travel :confuse

First of all, it's a great car. I'm not so sure that the price break offered to you wouldn't or couldn't be available to you after the end of the month. You may want to pursue that. I heard that the '07 Bluetec diesel won't be available till next Spring (?)
Thanks for your service to our country and good luck.

It seems everyone is satisfied by the forums and the reports. I'm sold, just waiting for the perfect one or to get home. Has to have all lthr, xenon, wood lthr steering wheel, keyless go. I love my gadgets. I have to close the deal by the 15th of November for the great rate. I'll keep looking. Do you know if you can get heated seats with the panoramic sunroof and the 6disc changer? At MBUSA seems to conflict?
Thanks for caring. We all serve proudly and greatfully for people like you.

tuffy: I'm not sure about how most of the (CDI) cars coming in the the dealers are equiped. I'm sure that you could order exactly what you want, but it would no doubt be an '07, plus I'm sure that you'd like the car in your grasp when you get back to the States. Was there a specific car with all the options on it that you wanted that you were pricing with the dealer? If there is, you sound like you'll be back before Nov. 15th to complete the deal. Keep in mind the immediate depreciation on an '06 when the '07's come out, but may be not as much in the case of a diesel.
You'll love the car when your back in the States. Again, thanks for all you do.

A little off topic, but I haven't seen you post elsewhere lately, but what lead you back to an E-Class?
What of the M35 you had?
