Iridium Silver with packages:

-Run-Flat Tire
-Manual tranny

Asking price 54,145. I'm in Northern, VA

Thanks for your input!

That sounds about right and doesn't seem to include the price increase that went into effect (March/April?). I have the same options except I dont have AMG-Sport, Run-Flat or Manual Tranny but I do have the auto tranny and Nav. I paid about $56000.

With the exchange rate as it is at the moment, you (in the US of A compared with the UK) are paying about half price for your cars - anyone wanna post me a 55??

Woolly,

Why are Mercedes so expensive in the U.K. Is it U.K. imposed taxes?
I paid just over £40,000 for a reasonably well loaded 350 SLK - in the States that would be about £23,000. I'll leave it to our accountants (Hi Joyfulheart) to try and figure out world economies!! - I think, it's all about what the market will stand. I try to buy as much gear (both work & and personal stuff) as I can from the States - even including shipping, at the moment, it works out about half price - even including gear made in Europe, shipped to the States and then back over here again. I'm confused too!

If there are large import taxes, then I could understand the high prices. If not, then it doesn't make sense. As a minister friend says about anything that's not simple, "AH, that's part of the great mystery".

In the UK we don't (apparently) pay sales tax, import tax or anything like that - we just pay the price on the tin ... I don't understand macro economics either?
