I think the op has a good point.

In 2000, I paid about $30k for a 3 year-old W210.

Today, it seems like you can find 3 year-old W211s for closer to $20k (similar miles, condition, etc).

Boy is that the gospel truth. I walk out the door, get in my car, drive off if necessary. The very worst that happened is that the sales manager phoned me the next day and offered to split the difference. Even in the best of times, they exist to sell cars. And these are not quite the best of times. I actually feel sorry for them. The guys on the front lines are taking it hardest...most owners have millions in profits from previous years, despite all the whining they do. Selling cars is a lucrative business.
