That didn't work for my Dad! He never even made it to the door...

To be fair, I did go to a different dealership and met a very nice MB salesman who did demonstrate the E350 for me, so all the dealers aren't that way...

I saw the host at the main desk and said to her that I needed some assistance , she phoned through to another sales guy at his desk to come over. He said he was busy... I saw on his screen he was looking at football results! Then I was told to just wait, the white folks were getting along just fine though!

I was going to by an e55 cab, and it actually hurts because it was so blatantly obvious that they were being racist. They saw I was like darker completion and favoured their fellow men, and being young probably didn't help too! Audi however no problem great service!

Mercedes had a bad rep in the UK, Mercedes Benz UK bought back all 200ish franchises to get it's rep back up to scratch, don't think it working they need to try harder.

You can only step foot into Mercedes showroom if your a white older man wearing a Suit.. Oh well their not getting my money and that's for sure!!
But I thought only America was racist. I don't understand.

back to the MB forum, what % of the posters do you think actually own an MB vs. being Internet "pretenders"?

Not sure whether you're being sarcastic or not, but America racsit... Hmm not so sure buddy, the guy that sits at the top of your country right now, what color is he?

There is racism everywhere! But the Brits just do it on the sly, they have a classy approach, lol.

Sales people should just sell no mater what, commission is commission.
However, I still live to see another day!

Yeah I was being sarcastic. We are constantly reminded here by a left-leaning element that America is inherently racist and should be more enlightened like Europe. The half-white half-black dude that you mentioned uses this to inflict his policies of "fairness".

Re: Can you believe these guys

Wife and I went to a BMW dealership when shopping for a X5. Man... what an experience. We were treated like royals. I kid you not. The receptionist brought us water bottles and another sales guy gets us cappuccino... real espresso cappuccino. For a minute, we were scared of the kind of service we were getting. LOL. Mind you, we are not white nor old.

Too bad, we hated the way the X5 drove. Test drove a Cayenne S the same day and bought it.

Never been to a Merc dealership... I have always seen older people driving it. :P

I've never had an issue with MB dealers ignoring me or being rude. I'm a mid 20s white guy and don't typically wear a suit (I do usually wear a dress shirt though). Every time I've gone in to one, I've been damn near assaulted by a sales person when I pulled up.

That's where the problems start. Most of the sales guys have their heads so far up their own asses that they can't process the fact that there is competition, and are amazingly pushy.

All brands have good and bad dealers. MB seems to have nearly the same % of bad ones that Chrysler has (aka a LOT).

FWIW, I know a guy who has a great relationship with an MB dealership. He leases a loaded ML and a loaded E class every 2 years from them. When his leases are ending, they make sure to have a new one just like it ready for him to leave with.

Why would anyone pretend to own a car they don't on the internet? Do they really have that low of self esteem that they have to make themselves feel better by pretending to own a vehicle they don't?

Truthfully, I doubt there's very many sad little people like that out there. At least I'd like to believe that there are very few.
