    I'm getting ready to buy a RWD C350 Coupe. None of the dealers in my area (W PA) stock that configuration, and so I'll either be going out of state, having a local dealer bring one in from elsewhere, or ordering from the factory.

    Any thoughts on tools to either locate one myself at a non-local dealer or for competitive pricing searches? I've used TrueCar in the past, but since no one has one none of my local dealers are posting pricing to that site.

    Check out Europen Delivery. You can pick up at the factory with options you want. You can also build on MB and send to dealer in different states for a quote. You can use the prices from True Car. You can change your location in true car to find what state has the vehicle you are looking for. You can call a dealer another state. I found that E-mail works better.

    I bought through a dealer in another state and pick up at the factory.
  • I am attempting to lease an C250 Sedan in Atlanta. I also have a MB SLK 230 to trade in.Are there any other available incentives?

    Do you have the lease rates (residual / money factor) for either 33 or 36 months 10,000 miles ?

    Any help you can provide is appreciated.

    Just negotiated the following deal on a C350 Coupe RWD in SW PA:

    Included Options:
    Multimedia Package
    Parktronic
    Keyless GO

    MSRP: $47,655
    Invoice: $45,081
    Negotiated Price: $45,280

    It's a direct factory order as there are no such vehicles avaiable locally. I didn't think getting into the holdback would be an option in this case due to limited availability, and didn't feel like fighting them over the last $200.00 over invoice. Instead, going to get them to throw in a couple of freebies such as wheel locks, etc.

    Has anyone ever seen or heard of dealerships who are willing to offer good pricing on the M-B extended warranty if they aren't the ones who sold the car? I bought a Honda a few years ago (not the same, I know) and was able to cut my warranty costs by 2/3 by going through another dealer in Massachusetts.

    When you you buy the car, the dealer is looking to pad their profit as much as possible and add a couple of dollars a month more to your payment.

    But any dealership can issue the warranty. If you shop around for it as a separate item, they will almost always offer it at a lower price to try to take business away from their competition (and it's a high profit item for them) On something like a Mercedes or BMW, the extended warranty can be a great thing if the price is reasonable.

    I have. Bought new vehicle from MB dealer in New Orleans. He did not sell MB warranty only third party. Local California dealers were very expensive. Make sure you get a 7 year 100,000 miles. Have the dealer send you a quote with the correct price and terms. Dealer back East tried to give me a one year 100,000 miles. Dealer said that I told them I was a high mileage driver. Had previously discuss with MB Headquarters the problems I was having obtaining the warranty because of the time limit. I had European Delivery and needed a time wavier. I did get a full refund from Eastern Dealer after call from MB.

    Called near end of month on a Saturday, morning to a dealer in Colorado Springs. He send me a quote and price. Paid the price and contract was correct. One dealer about one hundred miles a way in California was going to get back to me. Could never make contact not available or was on the phone.

    You can go to MB site and look up dealers in each state. Call ask for the Finance Department. They handle all the warranties. Make sure you get all your quotes in writing before paying anything.

    Looking to lease a C300 4matic. MSRP $45530 (P-1 & Multi-Media packages). The dealer is claiming their cost is $41,060 which would be my cap cost. With a money factor of .00092, a 61% residual and a 33 month lease with $15k miles per year, the monthly payment is $500 oer month. Im looking to pay $400 per month. Do do so, I need the cap cost at $38060, $3k below what they are claiming their true cost to be. I figure they have about $1k in profit built into the car at the $41,060 cap cost and according to this site there is about 3% in additional Hold back money ($1365) in the car. So my qustion: Is there an additioan $1700+/- in the car that I can point to to get hem to use the cap cost i need of $38,060?

    Guys,

    I've been lurking here for a few weeks and think I'm ready to make the plunge and join the family.

    Looking at my first MB purchase and need some insight as to what I should offer and what I should expect to pay for the car detailed below.

    C350 with Keyless Go, Panorama Sunroof and Multimedia Pkg

    MSRP $46,700

    What about the $1000 Conquest incentive from Mercedes Financial? Has that already been applied?
  • poodog13poodog13 Posts: 320
    I'm picking up virtually the exact same car today. My pricing was $200 over invoice before incentives, which included $500 in auto show cash and the $1000 conquest incentive. That brought my net pricing to $13000 under invoice.

    Hope that helps!
  • sommysommy Posts: 2
    I was close to that, but I didn't have the conquest available to me. I was able to get about 500 below invoice, which I was very happy with.

  • :) My mind was constantly thought over to buy a Benz. So I thought that it is the right time to buy a classic car like Mercedes Benz c-class. My friend bought a subaru outback since he lives in Arizona from a dealer found through www.unocardealers.com So i followed his advice and bought a Benz c class from a dealer nearer to my residential area. :shades: :shades:

    Thanks
