Some say I should have gone with the E, but this being brand new to the streets, killer look, and really every option I want and need (except cooled seats) this is the perfect choice for me.
I agree with your decision to get the C-Class over the E. The C has all the latest stuff and is at the beginning of it's life whereas the E is at the end.

Also just to confirm and support your decision, you can't even get cooled seats on an E350, you would need to get an E550 or E63 AMG to get this option.

Out of curiosity, what dealership in Chicago did you deal with?

2008 C350 Black/Black Leather, P2, 18" AMG, Pano, illuminated door sills, chrome handles, long wait
Thanks Guys,

Yup, the dealer I worked with was 'Mercedes Benz of Chicago' my sales guy was Lanny S. Oh another reason for the C is the size. The E can feel a little bulky to me and the C feels more connected. The S550 feels more connected than the E, but the S is almost 2x the cost.

We're all praying September goes fast, its hilarious.

'08 C300 Sport White w/ P2 MM & Pano
I'm paying 38,300 for the following:

C300
Auto
Arctic White
MB Tex
P2 Package
Multimedia Package
Panoramic Sunroof

MSRP is 40,115, and according to carsdirect, invoice is around 37,800 (don't know how accurate that is) but I would say I got a pretty good deal.

Congrats, sounds like a good idea. Are you buying or leasing? If you are leasing do you mind posting the lease details.

I got a great deal on mine

C350
Obsidian Black / Black MBTex
P2 Package
18" AMG Rims

Got the car for $38,335
Without tax and license of course

My salesperson really worked hard for me.
To make the long story short we went by the dealer to test drive the new C and left without buying cause of price. So he calls me the next day like five times to try to work out a deal original price was $41,305 and I got him down to $38,335 I think we got a great deal.

Some of you are hilarious with your searching & e-mailing all over the place…waiting months on end etc... Driving 200, 300…..800 miles to save $300.00 insane…. It was worth the $300 I didn’t save to be the first in town with a new W204…. Hell I think I spill $300.00 a day Lol I know I don’t have the time to dicker over the price for an Automobile I’m going to **cough** write-off next year anyway. Also what gets me weaker is some of you, I’m not pointing any fingers… but some of you that weasel the dealer down to his last pair of sox on the price are the ones so… worried about the resale value on these cars. Why don’t you think about it for a second, some of you characters are the very ones that sap any resale that could have been had right out of the cars.

In short I used to support my family on a “car salesman’s” wage, when a car salesman does his job well.. I.e. Locating, Demo, working with and around your tight-wad @&& for weeks on end, coming in on days off when one could be with his/ her family etc.. and if that car is delivered without a scratch and is thoroughly gone over and explained. They deserve a commission, as that’s all they will make. If you’ve never done the job you have no clue of what the “military-esq” environment is like.

I guess im part of this message? Everyone has a right to bargain on price if not then you walk away like I did. You must not have been a very good salesman. Tell me what dealership you worked for and I'll make sure no one asks for you.

Car salesmen aren't the only ones who work hard for their money, so you can't blame anyone for wanting to negotiate prices down.

I agree everyone deserves to earn a living but I think you are blaming the wrong people. As consumers, everyone is going to try to get the best price they can, there is nothing wrong with that. If you think that the way the commission system works is unfair then point the finger at the manufactuers or dealers.

Could you shed some light on this btw, I really don't know all the details of how it works. But I understand the lower they sell the car for, the less comission the sales person gets.

08' MB C350 / 03' Lincoln Aviator
New to the boards and happy to say we just put in an order for my wife's new C350 Sport. She had her heart set on a new BMW 5-Series to replace her 01' 525 but decided to jump ship after the recent horrible side impact test results the Bimmer had.

The breakdown:

C350 Sport
Black on Black
P2 Pkg (Bi-Xenons)
MM Pkg (Navigation)

MSRP = $41,575
Paid = $40,219 ($1,356 below MSRP - No Haggling)
[not including tax & licensing fees]

Not the best but not bad and no stress involved. TIP: Costco members get a decent no haggle price. This was our 2nd automobile purchase thru Costco, worked out the 1st time as well.

Build starts in October, expected delivery is early December

And you both believed that, I have a bridge in NY to sell you too!

Anyway, good luck on the new 350. My sister has a 545i and today I went to Mercedes with her yesterday to look and test drive the New C350. I liked the C350's design. IT AIN'T NO 5 Series (Not in its class) but in comparison to the 335i, the C350 does hold its own weight; design-wise. There is a 2-3 design elements externally Mercedes and BMW share in common.

Now I am going to be a little ... This C350 is for the wife correct? Good, cause you might look a little sexy (Feminine) in it. Just pick the right color if it's for you and you'll be fine.

The bridge comment was uncalled for but i did have a good look at the 5's center console/armrest. I really can picture it being a little more hazardous to the driver than the other cars. Yes the C350 is for my wife, the 01' 525 was picked out mainly for its best in class safety at the time. I think BMW slipped a notch with the new 5-Series, it took a couple of years for us to even like its looks (shouldnt have had to) but once the side impact tests came out it dropped off the list. Do you really believe I'm the only one that believes the side impact test report? With all the fricken drivers these days and their cell phones strapped to their ear (get a damn BT at least), we should all pay attention to modern day test results. Just my opinion.

Pretty much got free CD-Player out of this. Dealer won't budge at all But the bright side is that my delivery is going to be mid september

This is the first time ever in my life buying car almost at sticker price ..

Hmm why did you need to pay extra for a cd player with the P2 package? The P2 package has the multimedia package right? So that already includes the cd player.

What do you guys think about MB's pricing of the new C-Class? Do you think it is fair and good value for the money?

Absolultely. The car is actually cheaper than the outgoing C-Class. We also pay the least for these cars in the world. The same car would be much more in Europe. Also keep in mind that since the W202 C-Class came out almost 14 years ago, the base price has remained virtually unchanged.
