Well I went back to the dealership today (Mercedes of Nanuet NY) to speak with the general manager. To make a long story short, he said that this occasionally happens so tough luck! He actually had the nerve to say that the dealership lost a sale. As if I should feel sorry for them. He offered me a 2009 for ONLY $100 more a month. Isn't that generous of him!!! Mercedes corporate was no help either. Fortunately I am at a stage in my life where things like this don't really get to me. Mercedes Benz won't miss me as a customer and that's Ok because I don't have to have a Mercedes.

There are some decent deals on 5 series as they clear out MY08 inventory incl. free premium package or some other OC (option credit). You can also get lower MF if you or anyone in your household qualify for owner loyalty. Not to mention that performance-wise, the 535i/Xi is streets ahead of the E350

jaybird12 - Sounds like a decent deal. In this crazy environment with residuals fluctuating, I would highly recommend leasing as long as you drive between 10K - 15K miles per year. If you need any help with dealer recommendations, please feel free to send me an email at eights38gmail.com.

Don't worry about what other said about the price that you should shoot for. It is all internet b.s. The key is that price are local.. Someone may get a great deal in LA with 8-10 dealership within 1 hour driving. But if you are in a small town with only one dealer, there is no way you can match the price that someone can get in LA. So when someone tell you that you can do better, unless they live in the same town as you, it is meaningless. Just shop around you local area and get the best price you can. Once you have the lowest price within your area, you can check experience of others in LA and decide if flying to LA and buy a car is worthwhile for you or not..

I am in LA. The thing is back in JuLY when people here were getting employee pricing, I asked several local dealers about that and they just rejected it saying "you will never get employee pricing since you are not a employee. Do you know of a good aggressive dealer in LA?
