RE: European delivery
The European delivery doesn't save money, even if you were planning on a European vacation anyway. The basic package gets you transport from the airport to Mercedes, overnight hotel, 15 days insurance, and all the transport charges and fees to get the car delivered to the Mercedes dealer of your choice in the US. The program does offer a very special experience of selecting your car's appointments, then being personally introduced to it at Sindelfingen, tour of the factory and museum, then being set free for a road trip of Europe. There are hotel packages available, including one where you just leave the keys with the concierge and they take care of delivering the car for shippment.
European delivery offers a discount on certain models (C-Class, E-Class sedans/estate, CLK coupes, and S-Class sedans) and there is no discount for the AMG models, CL coupes, SL, CLK cabrios. The M, G and SLR are not part of the program.
