Well the $35,000 off MSRP deals just clicked in. This is on AMG models, so the buyer still has to bring about 70k in cash.
Let's see if the waiting lanes will start to form?
Thank you Mr Bush.

Cheer up, the patent on the mouse trap was denied. Congress will move on to other things. Who knows, the year is young yet. Maybe MB USA needs a WH lobbyist in a fuchsia dress and flat sandals.

By the by, what did JWB did to you now?
