A website to decode your VIN no and the build:

http://www.mercedesmedic.com/decode/

 

http://carinfo.kiev....cedes/vin_check

 

Nice place to confirm the build and contents.

 

Cool! Thanks for the links. :a-m1212: 

 

Doesn't seem like many of us who put in our orders recently have got our COEs yet. Also Merc ad today offering some double bonus for Motor show!  Not to mention on Motorshow thread, seems like a lot of  bros are coming in with their orders for CNY!  Hopefully COEs don't spike up too much next round...

IMO, they will get it for you, but maybe after the show.. you would imagine a lot of excitement and bids for the coming one, since it could be the last COE bid before the CNY, and we still have a lot of orders to fulfil, but have faith! Merc will deliver! Cheers

Wah now that's a big increase in your budget bro..
I was merely going to suggest the B180...
The overtrade quantum is what you want to squeeze more on.. hope some bros will chip in ..

Not really...

I bought a cla sb200 on 7dec, besides scrap-value calculated till Mar'17 (waiting time for new ride), OT$10k was pushed to OT14.2k.

So, old ride (9+yrs) scrap (Mar'17) is $17.8k + $14.2OT, 32k total took-in price.

 

The others were 3yrs or 100k service credits of $5k, caressential pkg ($3+k), $500 welcome pack or JS F&B car cam, 1yr RT, extra diamond grile in silver

 

Don't rush to sign; take your time...it is good feeling when you are shopping for new ride..

 

Anyone know what is the "1yr RT" means?

Wow that's super low likely they took out over trade completely to reach there and service credit may have been reduced. But hoping to hear from others bros who knows the details on this.

Yes, wonder how they arrive at that figure and surprised they put it up so openly since they always seem to want to give the appearance that C180 pricing is very high and stable. [laugh]

I believe it is 1 year for merc.  They offered you a guaranteed COE with rebate at 50k for cat A?  Are you sure, as I recall that C&C always set a very wide gap between latest COE price and rebate level - usually 10k or more!  I'm surprised they offer a guaranteed COE too!

 

You can probably negotiate for a shorter loan and lower loan quantum.  One bro managed to get $50k loan for one year! [;)]

Thanks for comforting words!  I'm sure you're right.  Don't think they want to damage their reputation and I checked their gross margin is so high, COE has to reach $82k for it to be negative!

The CLA 180 has a Cat B Coe. Merc gives one year freeroad tax... Not that big deal since its <$1000. I suspect the 168k includes OT, service credits and the loan package too.. cheers.

At entry level (eg. C180, E200, etc.), C&C's gross margin is usually in the $50-70K ballpark, depending on which model.
It gets higher for their upline-engined variants. 👍🏼
AMG models lagi higher GM !

C&C typically gives free 1 year road tax for Mercs.
So for >3L models, that's quite a bit ...

I don't recall any of my past and present Mercs having only 6 months RT upon delivery

It's tied to the freebies right? Did you know how much freebies he got with a smaller loan?

Seems like a good deal..So mean effective price about 155k? After discount and overtrade..not considering serivce credits?

The c class sells well so I don't thInk so. 168k will be the final net after accounting for all those sweeteners.

the main BAD thing is the high loan required. The interests itself is around 16k. Actually, car price is very opaque and you have to work out a lot of numbers.

Normally merc/BMWs/Jags come with 1 year roadtax.   

 

The Japanese cars normally come with 6 months roadtax.
