Their rates are not that cheap, they want 599k for an slr, you can buy those for $5-10k back sticker. Most of the deals they have are on old 05 models, the entire mercedes line up is on 06 with the exception of the slr and the g class. what are you looking for?

They are a dealer -- just with lower overheads, lower margins and careful sourcing.

They sell everything from auction buys, volume deals from MBZ and anything else they can sell at a skinny price.

Compare the prices on what you really want and determine if the hassle is worth the value. After all they aren't local, and any problems are harder to straighten out.

Hmm, a colleague of mine just got a 2006 CLK for about 43K (negotiating at a local dealer and taking a Euro delivery) ... this is about 11K less than they list on the fleetrates site.
