Need Info On Buying 2011 C300

I am looking at the C300 and this will be our first Mercedes.
Having never dealt with the MB sales process, can someone
tell me what I could expect to pay above or below sticker?

Thanks in advance..

First off, congrats on thinking about buying a MB. I love them and will never own anything else. Every MB dealership is different but the prices will vary from online to the showroom floor. I'm speaking from the New Orleans area, you can expect to pay a little more than the price you may get quoted online but I have also seen the opposite, it depends on dealer inventory/stock. Also be aware of Service A and Service B work that is performed on your vehicle approximately once a year (depending on amount of miles driven). People will often get a big surprise when they bring their MB in for service. Service A (200.00-300.00) and Service B (400.00-800.00) This price depends on a lot of variables and what needs to be done with your car. So far my car has cost me minimal. Good luck and I hope I was able to help.

You can price the car with options on to get what they call TMV or True Market Value. There are also buying services from companies like Consumers Reports, Sams, etc. that advise you on true dealer cost and even get prices from dealers.

There is little reason to buy the car from the same dealer you will have it serviced by. Shop for price from dealers who may not be very close.

Car sales have been way up the past few months, so supplies may be running lower than last year. That may mean discounts might be less at this time. It is all supply and demand.

The facelift for this model (W204) will arrive late summer/fall, so you may at that time be able to get a better discount on the then slightly obsolete model.

Details of the facelift are in the current Mercedes Enthusiast magazine.
