#372 of 2219 Now that 2008 models are out, any buying experiences on 2007 E320/E350?
Jul 05, 2007 (7:29 am)
I was waiting for 2008 models to be out so I can get some good deals on 2007 E320 or E350. It is not clear what is going on.. The mercedes benz home page gaves crazy numbers on 2008 leases. MSRP difference between 2008 & 2007 only $1200. Why? Other luxury brands are passing on considerable discounts post July/4th.. why not mercedes... I was tracking price gap in Accura RL & Mercedes 320 and the gap has widened by more than $7000 making me very confused if I should wait for Mercedes prices to come down...or entertain agressive Accura sales guys. Please advice on the outlook..

As of July 15th 2007, Mercedes Benz is submitting new rates, due to the unpopularity of their July rates.

You might try posting this question on MBWorld.org forums... I have had much success there.
#375 of 2219 cost of repairs
Jul 18, 2007 (1:56 am)
I just found a great deal on a 1992 190e 2.6. It would be my first mercedes and my wife is concerned that the cost of repairs would be too high because it's a Benz. Is this true, are parts and shop rates extra ordinarily high? Forgive my ignorance but i thought picking the brains of actual owners would be a good way to get the real story.

If you don't find anyone to chime in here, you can ask your question here: Shifty, I need your help!
Mr.Shiftright has vast experience with older imports.
He can give you an idea of repair costs and also an opinion on values.
#377 of 2219 Is this a good lease for E350
Jul 28, 2007 (1:21 pm)
Dealer in North Texas is quoting me lease for 33 months + 10000 miles (all taxes & TTL included):
- $670 monthly with+ $8300 down on E350 + P1-pkg + panaromic + extras totalling $57325 MSRP
The Edmunds & Mercedes Lease calculator tells me that right price to pay for this MSRP is: $619 monthly + $6000 down (all taxes, TLL included). This is very close to MBUSA summer special leases.
Please advise what I should I pay. Why is the approx. $3000 difference in advertised leases and dealer quote. The leases I am getting on BMW 5 series for 2008 & 2007 BMW are even better then the lease calculator numbers above.
Please share your experience and advise right price to pay.
#378 of 2219 2008 E350 RWD in LA
Aug 14, 2007 (9:25 pm)
Just picked up my car last Friday, Aug.10.
Got several quotes from internet --I never visit or call. All only by email, usually when I buy car--
2008 was hard to deal compared to 2007. I guess if you can find stock what you are looking for 2007 w/ right color,option, then go with it. I got quote 2007 w/ below option except w/ black color for $45,100.
I just go with 2008.
2008,E350 RWD w/ P1 package, flint gray, ipod, sport package(no extra charge), head lamp washer
base+destin. = $49,900
+Tax (8.65%??) + Docs
BTW, I was trying to buy bluetech (diesel) w/ 4matic.
The dealer said it is not legal to have new diesel in CA except used car 8,000 miles or more.
And they didn't wanna talk about 4matic saying it is not available in CA.
Do you think it is true or bullshit ?

I remember reading about Bluetech not being available in CA and a few other states. Also, MB has not made 4Matic with Bluetech (or CDI before it) on E class.
#380 of 2219 E350 Lease (Can it be lower?)
Sep 04, 2007 (6:32 pm)
Deal for E350:
MSRP - $55260
33 month lease - $778
15k miles per year.
Only out of Pocket is $795 acq fee plus first payment. No title or other fees.
Dealer saying only $500 over invoice.
How much lower has someone got on a 33 month lease with no cap reduction?
Dealer stated that the $3000 to dealer is only on 2007, is that true?
Thanks on feedback!

I have heard many people within MB say "Mercedes in just backwards! The FED drops the rates, we raise the rates"
