Prepaid Maintenance (3 years/30,000 miles)
My 2000 ML320 Came with 4 years prepaid maintenance built into the MSRP. I like the current method better as it gives me a choice. It also keeps the MSRP in line with the X3 and Q5.
I opted not to order the navigation system as I see it as more of a distraction than a convenience. It took a lot of web surfing to find out that you still get a CD player even if you don't order the navigation system:

Congratulations! Did you get an additional 3 years of prepaid maintenance on top of the 4 years from the MSRP?
How much is the final cost?

As I understand it, prepaid maintenance is not included in the MSRP (As it was for my 2000 ML320), so I get just the 3 years paid for as an option. The total came to $52,570 minus whatever discount I might be able to negotiate. This being a special order, there is little incentive for the dealer lower the price. I will, however, give it a try.

Not really. I asked about discounts and he offered $1000 off and I accepted that. I might have done better but I'm not really into negotiating. There is still the matter of what I can get for my old ML320. I grew up in Vermont but I have been told more that once that I am not a very good Yankee trader. I can live with that.

Often time you can negotiate based on your trade in. Sometimes its pretty uncomfortable, but just remember that the salesman is gonna try to do the opposite to you, so you've got to push back a bit or else he will get a deal that is skewed to his side.

Selling a vehicle privately will always get you more money, that's if you persist with getting the best and ensuring you tip the playing field more towards you.

A profit needs to be made and the dealer will always cut you short... the cost of getting rid of a vehicle with ease.

My salesman tells me I can expect to see the car in early January. Plenty of time to consider my options.
