Hey guys, thought I would share the W164's are now at my dealership. They just arrived today amd I was able to check them out up close and get in them. They got about 9 of them and most were base base models with cloth seats starting at $38,000 and ranging up to the more loaded ML350's for $48,000. They didnt have ML500's though .. and they really dont do anything for me. My truck looks sooooo much better and beefier IMO. The new ML's kind of resemble the KIA more in person. Oh well ... I guess they may grow on me when they come with the sports package. So far though I'm still VERY happy with my truck.

Actually I am starting to like the ML more. The more I look at it, the more I like it. The outside of the car afterall isn't that bad anymore.

One thing that I really miss about that car is the gearshifter in the center.

Oh yeh...MLOffROADER....I would agree with you that the car looks like those KIA...but let me show you this

This Korean car was developed with Mercedes co-operation. Seems like Benz is really going toward that direction

Thanks for the heads up. In my experience wheels make the biggest difference in car. The MLs need beefier wheels/tires--275s or 285s. That, together with the appearance or AMG package in the irght colors will look very sharp.

How could you see "$38,000�? On mbusa.com site MSRP (including destination) is $40,470.00
Was that an invoice? Am I missing something?

My dealer received his first one today. A ML500 in pewter. Will drive Thursday and report back.

Not sure ... I remember seeing it at 38,000 ... I'll look again and let you know.

EXACTLY WHAT I SAID, I got flamed though, I even went as far as to post a side by side pic of the ML and the sorento
I'll still flame you :) --doesn't look like a Kia in the flesh! I must admit the Koreans are on a steep upward curve, though.
