Having been a salesperson at Mercedes: There is approx a 5-7% margin between factory msrp and dealer invoice. The factory provides the dealer with an additional 5% bonus holdback ONLY IF certain volumes are met. At model year there may be incentives to clear inventory - usually $2000+/- or a lease incentive. If you are a USAA member there is an automatic discount of several thousand $; A $500 discount also for certain frequent flyer members......

Also - discounts are NOT applied to transportation costs OR gas guzzler fees.
