I was seriously considering getting a new E350 4-matic later this year. I also spent some time studying the new 2005 Cadillac STS. I took all of my notes comparing features and prices of the E350, E500, and AWD STS into the local MB dealer. I also showed the dealer an eBay auction for an E500 4-matic at $9K below list.

Much to my surprise, I walked out of the dealer tonight with an E500 for less than I expected to pay for the E350. I will take delivery at the end of the week.

My wife thinks I gave up a lot of nifty gadgets in the STS to get behind the wheel of an E500 with a lot less features. 250,000 miles from now I hope to prove to her that I made the right decision.

So what did you end up paying for your E500 if you dont mind me asking? And did you get the 4matic? Hope you enjoy. I just got my E500 2 weeks ago and am loving it.

List price was $64,070 and price before tax (but including shipping) was $56,700. This was a pre-price increase car. Not many options. 324 sunroof, 819 six-disc CD, and 873 heated seats.

- Remove ugly warning label from sun visors.
- Install radar backup sensor.
- Change benzworld signature record to include E500.
