I have been able to cultivate a relationship with the guys behind the Parts Counter at my local MercedesDealership. They have an entire range of prices that they charge people, and I have seen ~30% discounts. They even matched a WalMart price on Mobil-1 last year. You may want to try it.
The first time I realized it was when I called them to order an Idler pulley. They asked for the car model and I gave them a part number. They quoted me a price, and when I went to pick it up at first they gave me a higher number, but matched the one they had quoted over the phone. Now I just check on line before I ask, and then see whether they'll match the price. If they get close i'll just go by and pick it up rather than wait.
