W204 C class parts overpriced?

I know the parts of my W204 is not cheap, but I have never thought that if I sold them one by one, the money I earned can buy another 12 C classes...

I read this news to surprisingly find out the S class parts are cheaper than my C class when compared to the MSRP of the car itself. But that list is for China, no sure whether the price is comparable in US here.

Here is the ratio list I am refering to:

Mercedes-Benz W204 C Class: 1273.31%
Toyota Yaris: 720.28%
BMW 320i: 661.74%
Toyota Corolla: 625.22%
Toyota Camry: 503.80%
Mercedes-Benz S500: 441.30%
Audi A6L: 411.27%
BYD F3: 409.02%
Lexus ES350: 408.47%
VW Bora: 404.06%
Nissan Tiida: 357.92%
Audi A4L: 351.25%
Honda Accord: 342.66%
Citroen C5: 308.82%
VW Passat: 306.95%
Buick Excelle: 272.75%
Hyundai Elantra: 271.62%

I bet Eric can chime in here and let us know how much more parts are in China. I shipped a valve body that I got for $1100 to a friend in Kong Kong because it was $1800 there.
