. How do you rate these 3 cars from 1 TO 3?
Well since the S class is the latest of the 3 I think it was the better choice.
BTW do you know that the 7 series will have a redesign this year Audi as well not sure when.
think the 750 is inferior to both in terms of interior and especially the iDrive thing (clearly designed by engineers instead of designers).
I guess if you say so.
I don't mind that the compressor broke down that much. I'm sure it's not a common issue. But I never expected this level of "service" from Mercedes.
I guess they will always be like that.
To proud of their product
Lexus makes great cars and I did look at the new LS, but it just seems like this is a car for a much older crowd. S63 is a blast to drive. I've gone up against several Porsche and some guys on crotch rockets and was able to keep up just fine (I'm not very experienced). Just feels like a big let down from MB over a minor issue such as this
Well the car is for a much older crowd because the older people have a better experience I guess
crotch rocket? like lambos ferrari etc?
Just wanted to share my experience. I hope it may help someone in the future. I think my next car will be an R8. Audi just seems to be a better company and the R8 has got to be a great car.
Audi R8 isn't that a very different car then the S class
Anyway good luck let us know here when you get back your car.

I'm thinking to buy used too. If I understood it correctly, MB certified program does not help, because you get it only for 1 year or 100,000 mile, whatever comes first. of course, 1 year will come first, so there is no point to do it. I'm thinking to go to delear's action and buy 2 year old car with 25-30K on it. Realistically speaking you can buy this car for about 45K from MB finacial service line on action. Make sure you use green light cars only and check Carfax history of this car before you going to bit on it. MB original warranty is for 4 years or 50K miles, so you will drive another 2 years with warranty and then decide what to do with this car. Anyway it should be smart way to enjoy S-class. What do you think ?

You can go there with any dealer, who has a right to buy from there. Usually they charge about $500-$700 for this service plus all auction fees. You may do better deal. Where are you located. I'm in NY and we have no problem to find those guys.

#50 of 50 2009 S550 Lease-end buyout?
Jun 19, 2013 (5:15 am)
I have my 48 month lease coming to end shortly. Lease-end buyout option is $37k. The car is in excellent condition with under 30k miles! So, I am considering buying it out. Any ideas if this is a fair price? I did some quick checks, e.g. Edmunds TMV and it looks fair but may be I am missing something. It will be plus taxes and $150 fee to buy out. Most importantly, can the buyout price be negotiated with MB Financial? I mean has anyone had success with this? If I approach them, not sure what to tell them about the miles, they may like me returning it if they have an idea of its good condition and not negotiate the price at all.. Thanks.
