Don't forget that if you are a member of Costco, you have access to their "Auto Program", which is a car buying program exclusively for members. I certainly am going to explore it once cars are delivered to local dealers.

How did you manage that? Ive talked to three dealers and not a one of them will budge off the MSRP.... However they did say that the CLA will be eligible for Employee Fleet Pricing.
There are three dealers within 100 miles of where I live. I emailed all of them (never talked on the phone) and got them to break down the base price, options, dealer fees etc. I made sure each dealer knew I was shopping around. Once I got the itemized price "list" settled I asked them if anyone would offer me a % concession for pre-ordering through them. One did not even respond to me, the other offered me a vague "sure we can offer you a discount" response but nothing specific. The 3rd dealer agreed to give me 1% off and said that I would be the first person who had pre-ordered the CLA that they would be giving a discount to. I responded and thanked him and (very nicely) said that it would need to be 5% to make an immediate decision on my part. They came back with 3% and since the other dealerships did not seem to want to play ball, I went with the 3%. I hope that helps!

Well I Got 1600 off the total Price that´s 3% of the total cost of the car, that was the best deal i could get. If you get the 3 % i think it´s great if you could get more, that would be awesome.....

Thats great. I tried that, but all three dealers that are closest to me already have 30+ pre-orders so at this moment, they dont really care to negotiate because no one has asked. Mercedes Benz of Dallas said no discount, Mercedes Benz of Oklahoma City said absolutely not, and I am still waiting to hear back from Mercedes Benz of Tulsa (which I doubt I will hear back.) So I guess my options are to pay MSRP, find another dealer thats in the next state, or wait until my local dealers have them on the lot. -_-

Sorry to hear that no one wanted to play ball with you man. Nashville is the largest metropolitan dealership so it shocked me that they were the ones who were willing to offer me a discount. I didn't go into the process with a lot of hop (having heard stories about Mercedes) but I was pleasantly surprised by the results. The internet sales manager was really easy to work with and never once made anything awkward. I've got my fingers crossed for you with the Tulsa dealership! Good luck!
