Hi all :)

I'm new to the forum and am currently in the market for a 2007 C230 with the following Specifications:

-Silver Exterioir
-Automatic
-Handsfree communication (not the entertainment package)
-Sunroof package

I believe that the MSRP on the MB website is about $34500. I've read in forums that the price should drop since 2008 is coming out later in the year. (I'm not gonna wait for the 2008 cuz I don't like the edgy look. :p ) So my BIG question is... WHAT IS A GOOD PRICE?! :p I've never bought a MB before.. so I'm not sure how negotiable they are~~~ Any advice is greatly APPRECIATED!! thanks a bunch everyone!!! *^_^*

Welcome to the forum :)

A good price is available at carsdirect.com. Not the best price you can get but certainly don't pay more than that. The rest depends on MB factory to dealer incentives and they change month to month so wait until it's right. Call the dealer's Fleet Manager (some dealers switched the naming to Internet Manager) and you'll get pretty much their bottom line price. You may want to put your city name in your profile in case there's a contact at a dealer in your area that is price friendly that someone wants to share.

Good luck with your purchase.

The 07 C230 will not be ordered by a dealer with handsfree. You will need to buy the equipment and have it installed. Bluetooth installed on a C is about $2500 from an MB dealer.

The price should be about $2000 back of invoice. Best of luck.

friend picked one up recently for $2500-3000 down (not entirely sure) with $320 a month lease for 27 months.

if you are going to buy...i would say $1500-2000 over invoice as the 2007 is the last year and June is approaching which the first shipment of W204 should head to the states by then.

EDIT: asked my friend. he paid $3500 down. 27 month lease. $320 ish a month. 12k miles a year.

Buellwinkle: You're right! I was trying to get quotes from people and I guess they don't really have the hands free option.

Quick question.. is hands free the same as bluetooth?!?!

I actually want the Bluetooth function :p
Thanks!

"Hands free" in Mercedes speak is NOT Bluetooth. When MB offers Bluetooth (standard in '08 C-class), MB will call it Bluetooth.

If you really wanted hands free opt for the MB bluetooth kit by Argos for approx $850.
