No problem, and if I get any further info, I'll pass it along. I had several of the old body style E's, and each of them was totally trouble free. I also had a 2010 E 350, which was also totally trouble free. If you are considering a new 2011, I would strongly suggest that you purchase a 2012 with the new engine. Once the new engine is out, the value of 2011's and earlier will drop more than usual. The 2012 will hold its value longer.
I expect that Mercedes will renew its offer of 2000 loyalty rebate dollars on the new 2012 for previous owners and a special finance rate. That would bring the cost of a new vehicle very much in range.

I also worked with Autobahn with their internet sales guy A.L. Very easy to work with and to talk with. Offered great deals and very straightforward. I would work with them and him again in a second.

2012 E-Class will be available around September. You can read the complete specifications with color chips and packages here: 2012 Mercedes-Benz E-Class changes and updates: Sedans and Wagons!.
Actually it's a little skeptical about new E550 and new engines overall. So if you can get a good deal on 2011 - you probably should do so...

Thanks for the link. Good info...and you're probably right about getting a 2011 over the 2012 with the new engine.

Found out from my dealership that they have not yet ordered 2012's since ordering is not yet "open" to them for sedans. As soon as he can order 2012's, he'll let me know and I'll pass it along. With the new engine and improved fuel economy, I asked him to go ahead and order me one in silver with black interior with premium 1 and tire/wheel package. With gasoline prices going up and the decreasing value of the U.S. dollar, I think that the 2012 would be a wise purchase early on before values drop much more.

I am in the market for an E class send in the Atlanta, but will go out of state if necessary.
Does anyone know about the USAA credit union incentive with a purchase. I've been advised it is 3500. Do you know how this incentive is structured should it be off the msrp or off the actual sales price? Should I be looking for additional incentives on a cash purchase or do you think it matters? Any information would be appreciated.

I leased a 2011 E Class at the end of April using USAA. Basically, at that time I got the vehicle for $1850 below invoice. MSRP was 58600 and I got it for 51,xxx.

I think if you go on zag.com and select USAA you'll see the USAA price.

Please check with R.A.B Motors Mercedes at San Rafael. Look for sale named Fred. He is very nice guy, I have got mine with a very good deal from him, and planning to buy the second one from him soon.

I am set on a E350 Steel Grey p2 package, 18" AMG wheels, accessory styling package, Ac power outlet for potential lease or purchase.
The MSRP is $58,920.00
After going back and forth they will do the following. They will keep it available for me till tomorrow
Lease it out at 600.00 a month for 33 months, includes 15k (excluding tax). 1400 drive off, includes TAX, license and 1st month. Tax includes, I am looking at 650 a month.
Purchase it out.
The purchase price of $49870.00.
I think the purchase price is an aggressive number.
Can anyone give me any advice. Which way to go. I like the lease, but the purchase price seems almost too good to be true.
I dont have a current MB or a Conquest vehicle and as result there are no incentives there.
