2008 C300 Sports, AMG 18 inch wheels, MM package, 6000K HID Kit, 20% 3M tinted all around
Penske Mercedes benz in west covina is pretty good, I got mine there and the service is good, only took me 30 min to purchase the car.

NEVER go to Rusnak Mercedes benz in Arcadia, they sucks and overprice cars to customers all the time.

Every where you go they will try to make the most $$$$$$ out of you, so what I recommend to you is find out what is the invoice price and remember every body need to make some $$$$$(500.00 over invoice sound fair) GOOD LUCK!

Got mine from S. Bay in Torrance. They are owned by Autonation and are the largest volume dealer in LA County. Delt directly with the General Manager.

2008 Palladium C350 Sport
I actually went far to get the car that i wanted and got 1500 discount off the out-the-door price at Fletcher Jones Newport Beach, do NOT go to Rusnak like alex mentioned, i went to Rusnak and was pushed into getting a C300 when i told them i wanted a C350 ..... they lied about prices and most of the salemen are *******s who just wanna make a quick buck.

How can they not lie about prices ??? has the question "how do auto dealers make money" ever popped in your head ? did you know that the dealer always adds certain among of dollars to your monthly payment as their so-called "best-deal" ?? is this your first car that you bought ? there's tax, doc fees, interest rate, sometimes mark-up and all these add-ons blah blah blah, a vehicle with a tag of 40k can easily come out to 45k and more in the end, and we're talking about DEALER PRICE, not your dreamworld mercedes price = the price that you pay, things would be alot easier if it worked like that. And for the Mercedes brochure ..... I think anyone who can afford a 45K car would be smart enough to know that, plz dont say anything if you dont live in L.A or you simply have too much money that you'd like to give to the dealer for the sake of thinking you know everything that you're paying then go ahead, cuz you have no idea what your talking about, boy

Find a car you want without using a salesman on the lot at House, Fletcher, Penske, or Downtown. Fax your offer to the general manager, which should be 3% less than INVOICE, (no destination charge). Add tax, license, a govt required tire fee. Tell them you are ready to purchase today. If you don't get a response, go for European delivery. 7% off MSRP, and you get to try it on the autobahn minutes from the factory gate.

Brochures and pricing are handled differently in the US than you would find in your European country. Brochures over here are not delivered with a price sheet.

Will you please elaborate a bit more on how to do this. Going to Germany is out of the question for me, thanks

MB Laguna Niguel. Talk to their internet sales manager and make an offer. They will meet your offer. I have bought my last 5/6 cars from laguna Niguel, and would never go anywhere else.
