I purchased my new GLC on Dec 21st and so far so good. I have the 4Matic, panorama sunroof, lighting package, blind spot, premium package, heated seats and burmester sound system. I am really impressed with the lighting package, the led lights are amazing. Blind spot monitoring is great for highway driving. I wanted to get the interior package but that would have required ordering, but happy with the premium package. I thought about doing a special order and also adding the driver assistance package, but people I know that have those say they can be rather annoying. The only issue so far is the car takes a tap on the gas to get into gear, so backing out of the garage need to be a little careful. Got a decent price I believe seeing the car was only in the Chicago market for a few weeks so far.

Welcome to the forum! How much did you pay for the GLC?

The driver assistance package isn't all that useful if you're used to driving without it. Any pictures?

Thanks, glad to be part of the forum. I have a few pictures I can post. Sticker on the car was $49,885, including $925 destination. I purchased for $46,963 +TTL, so $2,922 below sticker, or 5.8% off. The first offer the dealer came back with was $1,000 off, so negotiated to close to $3,000 off, which I didn't think was bad for a new model only weeks old, they normally don't bargain. Dealer said the GLC's have been flying out the door. When I spoke to them on the phone, they told me they were not discounting, but in the end they did in person. I was pretty happy with the deal, but also wonder if I could have shaved another $1,000 off.

The interior look awesome! Probably couldn't have shaved much more off unless your tried the price match method with multiple dealerships. Still a great deal for a new model. There's been a lot of talk about how intuitive the infotainment control is. Are you used to both the touch pad and the knob?

The touch control and the knob are interchangeable, you can even shut the touch off if you don't like it. It took a little getting used to, but like both of them. You can also control from the steering wheel as well. The car has so many options and little touches that others don't have. I thought about price comparisons between dealers, but I am in Chicago and there are only a few dealers that have them, they can't keep the cars in stock. If I waited 6 months, probably could have got one around $45K.

Loving that GLC ! Mines only a couple of weeks away and I'm starting to get impatient now... Interestingly the alloy wheels you have are only fitted to GLC Sports (in the UK we have SE, Sport & AMG trims) with the 'off road' package seleected. I have noticed other markets have them as standard. It must be a funny old task working out what specification is going to be supplied to what country. I hope you are still enjoying the new car.

Anyone here planning to go aftermarket?

Typically factory wheels don't last long with me, maybe a few months after I have decided what looks good or should. Then OEM wheels get down graded to winter status :D
