Buying a new MB, need help finding the best dealer.

Ok so the title pretty much explained this thread, i have to stay in the state of Illinois, preferably in the chicago to central Illinois area. and also ive been looking at a 2003 E500, and i really want to buy it from a MB dealer, not a used car dealer. ive been looking at luxurymotors.com which is in the Chicago area and idk has anyone delt with these guys? if so please let me know your experience! Please if you know good or bad about this dealership please say it.

They have current local knowledge of the good, bad, and ugly dealers.






Have a great day.

Springfield, IL was my hometown from years ago...the places I mention may no longer exist.

Giuffre Buick-MB was the local dealership in our area, although my Dad bought his at a dealership in Decatur...******** Hortense, I believe was the name. Both are closer to Champaign than Chicago, although Chi-town dealers have a larger inventory and may be more willing to offer better deals.

Go Iliini!

I talk with these people roughly every month on club business or helping forum members.
They do know the best local dealers.

E_420:

The best price I've gotten on a new Mercedes-Benz is from:

Mercedes-Benz of Chicago
1101 N. Clark
Downtown Chicago
800/ 467-6787

If they weren't out-of-state, that's where I would buy a new one from. I have a longtime friend that is with them in Chicago.
Best of luck to you!
