The Mercedes website. The lease offer is for 2006 R350 $2999 (?) 499/mo. 27 months lease.
I took the 10K/ year lease because I wasn't sure if I like this car or not.
But I am glad I did. I test drove many other SUVs, The 38K Toyota and Honda Vans. This one surprised me with just 46K but fully loaded. Sticker price on it is 54K with Navigation, Preminum sounds while everything else is standard. The best part is the gas per mileage at 17 and 21 same as my VW Passat sedan (unbelievable). Another surprise is my insurance is 200 dollars cheaper than my 2003 VW Passat...
It is definitely something for everyone to consider.
They also offer a 1 year Tele Service in case of an accident, the car will send a signal out to the central station. It is sensored with all 6 seats. My children seats very comfortably in all seats.
I have owned a LX 475 before and this one is driven smoothly as the LX 475 which is now about 70K.

the MB website shows the $8k factory to dealer cash back but does not show the other approx $4k that dealers are discounting (difference between invoice and msrp).
also for the 2007 350, the mb website shows not only a reduced MSRP ($5400 drop from 06 to 07) but also factory to dealer cash of $1540!
so 2006 gets $8k and 2007 effectively gets $7k.
HAS ANYONE CONFIRMED IF THERE IS FACTORY CASH BACK ON THE 2007 500??

Unless it has changed since yesterday. I have a print out and brought to the dealership. The offer is good until October 2. I will check for you.

I just view the website now. They changed the offer.
Try to call your dealership and asked them about the offer I mentioned above since it stated the offer is good until October 2.
I will give you my sales person name if you need to.
Email me with your email address.

The R is priced so well in comparison that you have to go for it. If you end up with reservations, you can revisit the Honda after only 2 years.
It's an apples and oranges comparison between the two manufacturers. I can say this, the Honda has more cargo space and moving between the second and third rows is easier. Both vehicles feel big when in reverse.
The Mercedes is arguably better in all of the other points. 4wd, lower CG, safety, etc. I don't know the mpg of the Honda, but I get as much as 23mpg on the Highway.

On which MB website did you see the $8k factory to dealer cash? On the Edmunds website under rebates and incentives, they are listing $7000 factory to dealer cash.
I am glad that you found the Mercedes of Walnut Creek $12,000 off MSRP coupons!!

Thanks for the insight, I'll be leasing the R350 or R500 for my wife, getting rid of her 05 Caravan and my 05 H2. After I get the Mercedes I'll look for something for myself. I like the new CLS 550, but I also like the Corvette Z06.
