I'm interested in knowing how the current gen C-Class is doing w/ regards to its resale residuals/values... :confused:

The 3rd gen C-Class (W204) was offered as an '08+ model, meaning now pre-owned/used example would be 5-years old. Any insight into market values & going prices for such? (ie. original out-the-door price [as-eqiupped/optioned & TTL] compared to what they now go for...) Most of what I've come across has been $20k-$25k for '08 C-Class sedans (presumably sold out-the-door for $35k-$40k?)

I'm just curious w/ regards to such, to get a better idea of how the CLA will do stateside, downstream. I fully intend to keep mine in the household for 5+ years (in'fact, much longer). It's more-so for me to assess if ~$40k out-the-door CLA250 (MSRP, destination-charge, options/packages, state title/tax/license fees) is the way to go, or just doing the $29.9k MSRP + $900 destination-charge (and may be metallic paint, otherwise the red/black/white are great) for a ~$31k (pre-TTL) CLA250 is truly the "smart" buy.

I'd (personally) be a lot more giddy knowing that my ~$38k out-the-door CLA250 is still worth $23k (or more) in 5-years... :D

~$38,000 out-the-door ($35,750 + $2,250 TTL)
$29,900 CLA250
$905 destination-charge
$720 metallic-paint
$850 Bi-Xenon headlamps / LED-DRL
$1,200 leather-interior
$2,200 premium-package
$2,250 (6.25% automotive state sales-tax on $35,750)


(... the Premium Package I could sooooo do w/o, if it wasn't for the automatic climate-control which I personally need!!!)

Well, a 5% negotiated discount (on $35,750) would be ~$1,800 & 10% negotiated discount would be ~$3,600... finger's crossed! :eek:
