Mercedes Benz discounting?

Do Benz discount and by how much - am considering a c63 AMG?

Anyone have any first hand experience of negotiating a Benz? I know BMW gave me good discounts in the past but never negotiated a Benz.

tell them your currently undecided between the c63 and an M3, and that you have been offered a really good deal on a M3!!!

Surely in the current market, all car makes are open to deals.

Find out roughly what % Discount to aim for and Go nuts! When i bought my GTi i found out that around 12% off retail was a good discount, and i got 13.5%!

Usually you'll find a thread on whatever is the main Merc forums!

Good luck.

Not my experience with dealings with various dealerships in Qld. Nor my friends' experience.

Depends where you go really. I like to think I got a decent deal on my one. I know a couple of other guys who have also bought C63s at good 'deal' prices. PM for more info if you want.

Thanks for the replies. When we are talking massive discounts/deals does this mean 10%+ discounting from their manufacturer's list price?

Probably because we are performance car fans and the C63 is a great car that we'd all know about. And as we drive BMW's, there's a fair chance that a few of us have dabbled in MB ownership in the past.

Suj I'll pm if I have to but I think it's only fair to let everyone know what the pensioner discount was :

I take my hat off to you !

I've been in the chatswood dealer a couple of times over the years and the best I could do was a couple of hundred, which is why I've never bought one.

Yep, I went to Chatswood too and the guy would not budge one bit on a C63 with Performance Pack only option for ~ 180k. He kept shrugging off any attempts to lower the price. Ended up going to MB Sydney the next day and got a much better optioned car for less than what Chatswood wanted.

I've never bought one, but I've been offered up to 20% off a run out ML350.
