how much as a rule will sticker price be discounted on a C class

i am in the market for my first mercedes, the c280 sport sedan. sticker is $38,000 for what i want on it, including sunroof and a few other amenities. since i have never purchased a mercedes approximately how much should i expect the dealer to come off of the sticker price? i am in texas and if it matters they have more than a few on the lot. i know this is an very general question, but any assistance is greatly appreciated.

There is 7% markup on the vehicle, so go from there.

If you are in the Dallas-Ft.Worth or Houston areas, you will most likely get good discounts.

If you are dealing with a market that has only one dealer, generally, you will not get much in discounts since there is no competition.

Exactly right, and also in his favor is that he wants a C-Class, not a new model, and that the dealer has a # of them on the lot. He should do well.
