Are MB dealers asking/getting more than MSRP for '04 E55s?

Hi,

Just registered on your forum. I traded my '00 MB430
in on a handicapped accessible van two years ago. (Wife's stroke confined her to a wheelchair). She is now recovered and we're ready to drop the van and get another MB. '04 E55 is our choice. Hence my question above. I will probably be asking more questions as we get into our search. Thanks. Nice forum.

Well first of all congrats. second of all great to hear that your wife is doing better. I have a 00 E430 at the moment and I love it we just placed a order for a 04 E55 and are expected to receave it in mid to late April. I payed sticker price for it but if you wanted to get the car RIGHT NOW expect to pay anywhere from 8-10G over sticker price.

Welcome to the board! If you are willing to wait, you can get it for list....

But if you're really serious, you never know, your local dealer might get on in if you're not particular abour color/options, kinda like what happened with Arnee.

My dealership called me once and said they had one available for immediate sale, before my original ordered car came in, but I declined because I wanted the options I ordered.

There are some preowned ones going for a little over list.

Paying OVER Sticker

The reference above to paying $8-10K above sticker on an E55 is insane. I wold urge you not to deal with a dealer attempting to get 10-15% OVER the list price. These cars are in demand, but your "investment" will disappear the moment you leave the dealers lot.

There is plenety of profit left in the sticker price. The current market does not bear this...heck you could get a new Porsche Twin Turbo under sticker without even trying.

Shouldn't have to pay over sticker. My dealer got me one at MSRP within 3 weeks of request (I was not on a wait list).[:D]

Car is awesome. Have about 400 miles on it now. Just got clear guard protection on the front end. Now vigorously shopping for an SUV to replace my MDX. Have a V8 Toureg on a 24hr test drive. Had to open the hood to make sure it was an 8 cyl. Seems slower than my MDX, and the brakes have alot of travel before bite.[8D]
