Do you have a list of option packages? Are they the same packages as the 2007? Any prices?

I was told the packages and options would be the same as the 07. He didn't have pricing yet, but expects pricing to remain the same. I was able to negotiate $2000 off MSRP.

I ordered an '08 320 CDI two weeks ago as well - very excited! July build date, August delivery (Seattle). I know, for my part, there are a couple things different in '08. First, Distronic is currently unavailable (bummer), and second, there is a P2 package that comprises tons of the '07 ala carte options along with everything in P1. Naturally, I opted for it :D.

Nice to see you were able to negotiate a deal!

What is in the new P2 package? I have a 2007 GL320 scheduled for July 9 build, and may tell them to convert it to a 2008 if the packages are right.

Perhaps later they will offer Distronic Plus which is a newer version. Also I would like to bet they offer ADSII in that P2 package or stand alone.

Man, I hope they give us 320 owners the option to get ADS in '08 - not sure the extent of the ride improvement with it, but I am planning to upsize the wheels, so every little bit helps.

That list being a compilation of P1 and the new P2 package, it will probably range somewhere between $8-9000 I would think.

So I thought too, NJ. Just wondering if the package will be discounted vs buying each option individually like I did on my 450. If this is the correct list for P2 then I love it since MBUSA has finally combined needed feature (3 zone A/C and lights) in one package which will make them easier to find, IMO. When I was looking, I had such a hard time finding one with lights, camera, and 3 zone with KG, Distronic and wood wheel.

Agree...it looks like they have paired some very necessary options into a nice package. I would think that the price of the package would be cheaper than the individual pricing.

Alexh71 - Thanks for the P2 list. I've ordered all those same options - except for the 3-zone climate control - as part of P1 or as stand-alone options on my 2007 GL320. I would also be interested in seeing the price. Maybe getting all that stuff in a P2 package for 2008 is cheaper than ordering them separate in 2007. Thanks again for the info.

Hi everyone, they told me pricing will be released for the 2008s in the next two months and that P2 should be a bit cheaper than individual options. If I hear about pricing sooner y'all will be the first to know.

Thanks, alexh71. My personal opinion is that though P2 will be a touch cheaper, it won't be that cheap. I would be surprised if the savings go above $ 500. But, hey, if I am wrong then I don't think anyone will complain :)

Nothing about the GL550 is going to be cheap...:) And don't look for any discounts right away.

Patience is a virtue :) But, yes, I agree 100% that 550's will be hard to bargain on when they come out. I am just happy that it will be easier to find the light/AC/camera combo.

Why not order the Bluetec?
I'd be all over that, but everything I've heard, here, my dealer, and MB USA says the BLUETECs are a long ways out. Have you heard something new?

Thanks,
alexh71
