The reason I can't buy used is because the obstinate money grubbers at MBUSA have refused to give us a manual transmission Benz for a number of years. This is why I was so anxiously awaiting the product rollout in the US.
In Europe and the UK, manual transmissions are common. This is not Benz in Germany doing this, it's the money grubbers at Mercedes Benz USA.
I'm now doing some looking for what I can find in the way of an Audi or a BMW. Neither of them have refused to provide manual transmissions like the money grubbers at MBUSA.
Thanks for the response,
