Well, we went for a test drive in an R172 back in the summer. Told the sales guy we were not currently looking to change our R171 and had just recently changed our VW Sharan for a VW Golf, so any spare 'car' funds had already been used up for this year at least.
A few weeks went by before they were on the phone asking me again if I was interested in a deal, initially for the demonstrator car (a 250 sport with a GBP47k sticker price :O )...
I don't suppose they (MB) are desperate as I think overall MB sales are up this year, but I'm not sure how well the R172 is moving. I don't really want to ask the dealer directly, because he might start to offer me a deal that makes me re-think my position.
