Buyer's Remorse

Just bought a new CLS550. it has not arrived yet but I am concerned I paid too much for the vehicle. Can someone confirm a got a "great deal"
the vehicle came with P-1, parktronic, trim package and $61,500? I think I got a good deal and it is an amount I have at minimum talked myself into beliving I can afford. All thought welcome, thanks

Cool Good prices right now....

The price of these cars keeps comming down, at first glance it sounds like you did OK, however,

Please take a moment to complete your user profile ( location, year, etc.) so that we can help you better.

Welcome, you have a good car and are in the right place for help.

The CLS-Class has it's own forum. Just scroll down from here (General M-B) and you should see it. The actual owners who frequent there are in a much better position to answer your question. Congratulations on soon to become a Mercedes owner and welcome to the forum.

Any price for a CLS is too much. $61.5k could have got you into a lot better car, such an S550.

You opened a can of worms as you can see above.
To keep your sanity make a to habit check the price before putting money and once you do it, don't waste your braincells on going back to it.
There is always possibility to find slightly better deal if you put additional 100 hr on research

Well 100 hours of my time is not worth the savings, so I will take your advice and be happy with my purchase. The bullet is down range now.
Later!!

Kelley Blue Book (Just a guide....) Claims that the invoice on this unit is almost $68K - so yes you did great! Enjoy your new vehicle, and consider yourself fortunate to be in a position to spend that much on a fine automobile.

No offense, but some of us CLS owners think that the S class is for 60+ retirees... Fine car for sure, but it does nothing for me and others.

Well, and overpriced chop top W211 E class (now outdated) does nothing for me.

The point is pinhead, the guy was asking for a price check, not your stinky opinion on if the car he selected was a good one. Maybe be happy for the guy? Or do you feel the need to put down other's choices to make yourself feel better about yours? You should try actually reading the post before replying. Or is that an outdated concept?
