Be careful about judging the deal you are getting based on the dealer discount from "list" price also. It appears that Mercedes doesn't require their dealers to follow the suggested list price on parts. A few years ago I discovered that our previous local MB dealer was charging 110% of list for their parts. Some dealers might be starting with an even more inflated list price. I discovered this last summer when I called a number of Mercedes dealers looking for a carpeted trunk mat. The difference in price quotes was huge for that item.
