Brand new MB Owner...

finally made the decision on a '08 R350 2wd CPO with 32,000 miles. Silver w/ black leather. Loaded with all the features except the 4matic but there's no snow here anyway. Extended the CPO warranty another year to Nov 2013 or 100,000 miles. Working with the local MB dealership here was a pleasant experience.

Must say this site and board was very helpful in researching the vehicle and once I created a profile and begun really digging in there was just no way I could buy the GMC Acadia or VW Routan (the other vehicles under consideration)... just something about owning a Mercedes.

Pretty pumped about the car and the way it drives. The styling of this R-Series has really grown on me although I must admit the new '11 model sure does look a bit better.

Quickly learned though on the first family "ride" is that no matter how big or nice the car is, loading up the wife and 3 kids all under the age of 6 isn't necessarily fun!! ha ha. No, I'm sure this vehicle will make road trips to Grandmas a bit more enjoyable.

One quick question about adding a luggage rack. Will need to add this for long road trips and probably should just have the dealer do it. Is this hard to install for a below average "do it yourselfer"?
