Hi, everybody:
I am new member hear, I am planning to buy the 2009 SLK300, I am from Toronto, Canada. Can anybody give me the basic price guide for 2009 SLK300 in Toronto area? I know the MRSP, but absolutely no idea in the reasonable price I can bargain with the dealer.

Greatly appreciate in advance!

Of course... this is my OPINION. I'm sure there will be many others and none are wrong. Just food for thought.

Rule of thumb, most dealers have approx 10% of the MSRP to play with to give you a discount. That doesn't include manufacturer rebates.

So if a car was $70 000 MSRP and you got it for $63 000 I would say you got a pretty darn good deal.

Some things I consider when purchasing for a dealership

Dealers are usually more willing to discount add-ons and extras. So when you're dealing with the 3M coating and the SMART program and the police security program and getting trunk nets or a mercedes jacket or car cover.... that's where you want to negotiate for value.

While it's an old school train of thought...
You want to build a relationship with your dealer. A relationship is more than just price for car. In the current economic environment you can grind a dealer down to just about nothing. However, when you come back in 4 years later asking for them to help you out with mitigating a repair etc they might just remember you as that "cheap jerk who didn't want to pay us for anything" and not do much for you. Or they might remember you as "the customer who has bought 3 cars in the past 10 years and we don't want to lose their good money". (as I said... old school of thought, but I still follow by it)
