since 98 MB does not negotiate on price. everyone pays msrp. i don't know whether this changes given the current economy. your quote is msrp. dealer can shave a few hundred bucks from the cd changer which is a dealer option. pdi is also msrp. sales may cut some on msrp but don't expect much. at least it is transparent and you won't end up paying more than anyone else.<br> <br> assuming no negotiation on price, your main criteria is customer service and buying exp. some sales give lip service of a quick delivery, and then give preference to return customers and first time buyers end up waiting. there are those who wait over 10 months and finally got a car a car not taken up by another customer. obviously it is not to his specs but he has waited so long he'll take anything on the table. i got mine in 4 months which is reasonable. go shop around and talk to sales.
