Me.

Rasmussen Mercedes, Portland (Perry Thompson). ML 350, Iridium/Black, 317, 318, 319, 320, 321, 323, 324, 530, 550, 873, 890. April allotment, May build, June delivery. $1,000 refundable deposit. I'll revise my order after driving demo and getting more info/pricing.

May change color after seeing them all. This will be my wife's daily driver so things like NAV, Airmatic and power liftgate are for her. If just for me, I'd keep it simpler. Decided on IPod integaration in lieu of Sirius. I would have considered the V8 (or diesel), but don't want the old 3-valve one and don't want to wait 6 months more.

I have two on order.

One ML 350 for use in my "summerhouse" in Arizona and one ML 320 CDI for use at home in Norway.

Both cars are Obsidianblack with sportspacakage and fully loaded.

The ML 350 in AZ is production first week in march with delivery 15. april and 3.000 USD deposit. The ML 320 CDI is to be delivered "end of the summer( august?) and the equipment is not really final yet, but no deposit since I buy at least a car each year from this dealer.

Have one on order for mid August to replace my 02 ML500 and it too will be a 500. Colors and options will be selected when I see the first car my dealer gets in March.

Aren't you tempted to wait a few months for the new V8(s) (450/550)?

I've ordered the ML350 with the full launch package 140, 141 and 143. I only had a choice between silver and black so I took silver with black leather. I may take the ML500 also with the full launch package once the prices are released.

RE: Launch Package

What is the configuration of the "launch" package and which other options are available?

Thanks

If its only a matter of a month or so I would wait. My current lease is up in Aug and thats when I would like to make the change. Any idea as to when the new engines will be available?? I am happy with the current V8 and its been bullet proof so far

AFIK, there is nothing definite yet on the new V8 availability. I speculate, however, that it will be this fall. The new engine has the latest technology, incuding four variable cams, resulting in greater power, economy and cleanliness. May be available in a couple different displacemnts, 4.5 & 5.5L. Pending on lease issues, worth waiting for. The 4.5 will be more powerful than the current 5.0L.

Yes, I am in Canada and I know that MB configures the ML differently for this market. I previously posted the ML350LP options, here is the details of the 500LP. As you can see tons of options maybe a bit excessive, the price is supposed to be lower on the LP version but who knows[:)]
