Re: A Successful Week

Regarding the car. Yes, the wife is enjoying her ride. Don't let those commercials fool you with the $29000 price tag. Most Mercedes dealerships only carry the fully loaded models. I'm assuming this also depends on the area. We went to our local Mercedes dealership here in Valencia, we drove to Calabasas, we drove to Beverley Hills and finally, we headed to Mercedes in L.A. Not one had a "cheap" model. They were all fully loaded models ranging from $38625- $42000. I must say its a beautiful car. I've always loved the body style of the CLS. Thanks again for all of your inspiring stories. I had no idea about the importance of credit before discovering this community.

Re: A Successful Week

The E350's are definitely nice. We test drove one but my wife thought it was to big and for an older type woman? LOL! She's 36 and I always tease her about getting close to the big 4 0. What's also funny is, when we got to the dealership an older lady maybe in her 60's had just purchased a CLA and I told my wife that the CLA is also for older women. ;-) Anyhow, she also loves the back end of the CLA and the CLS. Whatever makes her happy right?
