what's "Leather Gear Shifter"??? mine is plastic.

panoramic roof and parktronic are must have! I also think "heated seats package" and "comfort package" are great to have.

Get the R500, not the R350. The V6 strains to pull the R-class because of its weight. You wont notice it now, but when you get to 80-90,000 miles, your engine will suffer.

I just got my 06 R500 for 25,750 with 35,000 miles on it. Certified pre-owned and extended the warranty until 2013 for $30,000 even.

You got to be kidding... ?! Sounds like something someone selling an R500 would say

Good choice. Congrats!
Looks like we have pretty much the same options and you get the best feature of all that I didn't get, parktronic! Enjoy it and post some pictures.
What color?

I am looking at a similar car. Late 2006 silver with black leather, premium package with parktronic, heated front seats, panoramic roof, 2006 GPS, 18 inch wheels, etc. It has 45,000 miles. They want 26,000? Is this a decent price? Also, is an extended warranty for 5 years and 100,000 miles worth 2,400?

It seems a little high given the mileage. I took someones advice on this board and used KBB trade-in value and added 2K for CPO as an offer/starting point for negotiations. Maybe they could come off a few grand? As you can see in my post, I paid $25,900 for a similiar CPO R350 with about 25,700 miles. Mine only has 17" wheels. Not sure about the warranty.

I paid 25900 for a 2007 with 15000 miles at the beginning of the year with parktronic, gps, power trunk, heated seats, 2nd row console, Pano roof etc. Not CPO. I would look around more since I think 26000 for an 06 with that many miles can be found for less money.

We negociated similar model in November 08 getting close to $27000 with about 30K miles on it. My wife decided to continue looking because we found out SAK has no power lift gate. It's a must for her. We finally found another loaded but not SAK.

I would assume the price can be lower since it's 2009 now.
