Buying 2009 R-class..need a

This is my first post and I am looking for advice. Yesterday I put a deposit on 2009 R-class Silver/Black with 24 miles P1, Parktronic, Front heated seats and Panorama Roof. I also would like to have DVD player and dealer will install it for $2,395. Price on the car is $56,595 + DVD = total is $58,990. Selling price $44795 ($14,195 off MSRP). So, my first question; how I did on negotiation, do you think it is room for another couple hundred? I am currently shopping for loan; assume I will get the interest rate I am looking for and will be picking up the car next week. Dealer told me that during the prep they suppose to check and apply any outstanding TSBs if any. What should I look at/check in the car before I sign any documents? Are there any weak areas? I am waiting for twins and I will be pretty busy next year. I will not have a time to go back to stealership to fix my car. Thank you in advance.

I think you got a good deal. 44,795 sounds like it is below invoice so no problem there. As for stuff to look for, I don't know of anything but it is a new car so no worries.

Given that Mercedes can recently only sell around 300 R-class per month worldwide, just understand they indeed SHOULD be dealing.
