Smile 2008 E550 Sport

My dealer in Dallas told me the 2008 e550 will only come in the Sport package. Does anyone know what the changes are from 2007 to 2008 models for the e's? Thanks in advance.

"Available" means not standard. I'd personally want the Sport Package on the car, except that the price will likely be insane. Hugely profitable option for MB.

For the same reason it wouldn't make sense to make it standard. Many people won't pay much for it, so they'd likely lose revenue if they made it standard then priced the car to be competitive.

Vehicle reliability, fuel economy, and price comparison information
