let me tell you about Mercedes benz of Chicago...
they are one of the dirtiest dealerships I've ever dealt with, i think crooks. Last year, I gave them 1k deposit on a Mercedes GL320 bluetec, it also had a 10k rebate at the time, we settled on 17k off sticker. Was going to drive up on weekend and do paperwork, drive the car home to michigan.
Saturday morning, I get a call, saying my car (the one with deposit....was "accidenttaly sold"....YEA RIGHT!!). they clearly knew i didn't believe a word of it. but he said, I can get you a car, same one, no problem.... I drove the 4hours. I get there, sure....same car......a year old......with 9k miles. I asked why he failed to mention the mileage and it being USED. he said..."it looked new, thought you'd be fine with it".
Got back in my car.....went to a different dealer...30minutes later, had a new benz. that afternoon, I wrote a letter to Illinois Attorney General and also BBB. Never heard from anyone....but I did contact my MI Attorney General, got a reponse in 2 days. Saying they will speak to IL office on mybelf, and even followed up with me 1 month later, saying IL office is not being helpful. So be careful guys........ I hate MB of chicago.

Did anyone buy 2011 R350 recently? I got an offer for $1700 under invoice. It does not look like a good deal to me.

2010 offer was good till 1st of Nov. I think you got little late to nail the deal. MB did not offer big incentive this year as they did last couple of years, reason very good year for MB. MB sales are up by almost 22%. 2011 cars under invoice is good deal since no cash incentive from MB if you can get special APR with that. Good luck.
#236 of 294 2010 R350 Bluetec vs 2010 R350 gas vs 2008 R320 CDI

I am confused with these three options below. I currently have good offers for these three models but wanting to see which one is better in terms of reliability, mileage and cost factor.
2008 R320 CDI - 22K miles - 38K plus TTL has extended warranty for 100,000 miles up to 2013 April (P2 Package) - MSRP 58K
2010 R350 Bluetec - 8k miles - 44K plus TTL and the original factory warranty up to 2014 June (P1 package) - MSRP is 61K
2010 R350 (gas) – 6K miles – 43K plus TTL and the original factory warranty up to Sep 2014 (P2 package with lots of nice options) - MSRP $62K
Please let me know what you guys think.

I'm in the Boston area too. Are you able to be more specific on the dealership? I've been looking at 2008 CPO R350s, but it sounds like there are some good deals to be made on a newer model. Thanks.
#238 of 294 2010 R350 $43700

I purchased one a few of days ago with 8100 miles on it. It was a MB representative's demo crossover and got a good deal.
MSRP was $61305 and the sale price was $43700($17605 off of MSRP). The mileage was awesome too. In highways the average was 22.5
#239 of 294 2008 R350 4MATIC - $30,900
Nov 15, 2010 (5:41 pm)
2 yr old 2008, 39.6K miles R350 AWD, P2 package, 19 inch alloy wheels, sports package, heated package, panoramic sun roof, navigation, ipod package, chrome inserts
Its a CPO so it has warranty till 2013 or 100K miles (whichever is earlier). I purchased extended warranty.
But sale price was $30,900. Tried for 28K-$30K but dealer would not budge. Threw in a 3.19% APR 60 month financing deal and free all weather mats.
