Make it clear that you are only interested in buying your car and not leasing or buying another one. You will walk away and go into another dealer and get another car if you can't get your car. Normally, MB/dealer will start talking on price at that point. They know the residuals are way over the true market value. If they won't talk, then walk. You can try and fallow your car after the turn in. If its got low mileage and is good shape, the dealer may end up buying it. It will turn up on their lot within a few days and you can walk in and buy it for less then your residual value. If it beat up and has lots of miles, then it will go to auction. I would let it go at that point.
