West Des Moines, huh. Did you have to get the car from up here in Minnesota?? I hear that Bloomington is the closest SELLING dealer, but the Omaha is the closest SERVICE dealer. Isn't it nice to know that your car is the right size for Shawn Johnson to vault over and probably be able to STICK the landing???
When you asked Mercedes to let you be the first in the US what did they REALLY tell you?? I tried that route also and they said "thank you for showing interest, but not now". Anyway, I wound up with the 123rd car sold out Minneapolis and my wife's car was the 10,000 sold in the US, so we are pretty happy campers. Still puts a big smile on my face every time I see the goofy little thing and still get plenty of laughs back from people.
