2019 C43
New to Mercs

Hey there!
New to Mercedes and new to the forums! I am currently driving a big ol Dodge Ram and need to get something smaller for the city. Iíve had my eye on the C43 since they have come out in 2017. Or 2016 if you count the c450. I am looking at a new 2019. I am curious what you guys have paid (in Canada) on the new 19ís whether it was factory order, ED, or on the lot already.
Thanks!

have you test driven the C43 ? If you have not, you should do this first and then to see if the car meets your needs.

I would say typical discount to aim is around 5-6% off. right now, I believe there is a $1000 factory credit given by mb canada in Feb 2019, that is on top of your dealer side discount of 5-6%.

Yes I have test driven the car. I am fortunate enough that my dad owns a BMW 440 which I would compare to the C43 and he was kind enough to lend it to me for a month to see if a car would fit my needs.
If I recall, most car companies do a spring sales event usually starting in March-April. Maybe I will wait to see if anything comes out then. It may be a bit of a stretch, but I am going to try for 10% off MSRP.

without any factory credit, you will never get 10% off from the dealer side.

Mind you, AMG car which this C43 is fallen into this category will generally discount to around 6% at max and given this is a face-lifted MY2019, you are likely need to shop around in all your local dealership to see who is willing to give you the most discount.

Never say never.

I know. just a heads up so you will not be overly surprised on how dealers are not budging much.

Typically, the dealer margin on the car is around 11%. The real AMG "63" car has a slightly higher dealer margin, I believe to be around 13%

Not going to happen.. not even on a 2018 model withe the old dash / grille. The dealer markup on the car is 10%.

Maybe conider this one instead.

brand new ... almost 13% off ... I am sure there is another couple of % to be had too, if dealer is smart enough to get rid of it.

^ That looks like a demo car, but it may be a good buy nonetheless. "Brand new" in this case simply means it has not yet been plated... but it has definitely seen a few test drives. Just saying.

90km. That's the typical number used on all the new car. However, the dealer would likely have already registered the car and taken the factory credit which ended Dec 2018.

All things considered I do appreciate all the insight but my eye is set on a 2019 C43, the facelift and new wheel and cluster really catches my eye and I would kick myself if I didnít get a 19, I am going to wait a few months and look for a demo 19.

Er - no. They are DEMOs... they've already been driven. They're not NEW.

All of the C43s are used demonstrator vehicles with several hundred km. Did you actually look at them?

If you are referring to the C63, the dealer margins are a little higher but there is still something off about that car. The amount of dust in the stitching on the seats, small marks/nicks on the front emblem on the grille (the Distornic radar) and the 33C temperature reading in the cluster are a dead giveaway that it's not a new car. You don't think dealerships make the occasional mistake in their ads or possibly put an intentional "misprint" to attract attention?

Some of us here have bought numerous new MB vehicles and have friends and/or family working at various dealerships. Rather than arguing for the sake of arguing, why don't you call the dealership, ask them about the car and see what they tell you?
