mercedes price policy?
I have two question about the price policy of mercedes benz; The price of S class in USA is much much cheaper than the price of S class in Dubai. for instance the S550 starts at about $117k and it reaches up to $140k in Dubai when it is fully loaded. the AMG S65 starts at $270k. FYI the custom are 5% of the total price of the car + there is no tax. So why there is difference in the price that it is much cheaper to me to buy a S class from USA & get it imported from USA to Dubai than buy it from the approved mercedes dealership in Dubai by at least $35k up to $150k(in s65)?
In my opinion the mercedes prices in Dubai are unrealistic, for example I bought my 2008 s350 by $117k with AMG kit, Guess how much did they offer to me when I want to trade it with other car with the same dealer; they offered me $64K, which means I lost 45% of the value of my car within 11 months only! & nobody offered me more than that??! & that is my second question; what is the percentage that mercedes car losses per year? FYI the S350 is the most popular mercedes in Dubai + MSPR for S350 $110
hopefully you would be the first one who answered my question
