Inchcape own quite a number of MB dealers in the NW, East Midlands and Warks - www.inchcape.mercedes-benz.co.uk

I got a mailing from them today, containing some rubbish about a 'VIP Manager's Confidential Event' on new and used cars, plus a leaflet of contract hire offers.

I was just about (and hence this message) to bin it all when I noticed an offer on servicing - £50 off an A service, and £70 off a B. Valid until 31st Aug 2007. I'm actually pretty gobsmacked by those discounts (I suppose in reality they probably make that much on the oil alone, and I supply my own anyway - wonder if they'll let me do that AND give me £70 off!).

It does refer to the services as "Elite" A & B. The cynical streak in me wonders if the "Elite" price list is higher than the standard one!

Well, I think it's all bullsh*t really.
There's a "Confidential" (but I can give it someone if I want to!) pass that I have to take (they won't discuss the deals by phone) with me, and that will enable them to show me "the exclusive price list".
These "exclusive prices" are available on selected new and approved used cars.

The "event" runs from Fri 11th to Sun 20th August.

I'm sure this is nothing more than a pre-1st Sept clearout of used cars, and there will probably only be special pricing on new cars that have stuck in Inchcape stock because they have dodgy spec's.

I had a similar sounding thing from the Greenoaks group today.

Business Lease on a CLS 320 CDI Auto + metallic paint.
Advance rental = £1497 + VAT
Monthly rental = £499 + VAT
Acceptance fee = £150
Lease miles per annum = 10,000

Alternatively, if you didn't want to lease but wanted to buy...
CLS 320 CDI Auto and metallic paint.
Monthly payment = £449
On the road price = £43,275
Customer deposit = £5890
Optional final payment = £24,600
Acceptance fee = £150
Option to purchase fee = £75
Monthly payments = 36
Total charge for credit = £3603.78
Amount of credit = £37,385
Total amount payable = £46,878.78
Typical APR = 3.9%

I got that from Greenoaks too yesterday. Some other interesting finance deals, 2.9 % APR on a B Class, 0% Option on the C Class and some R Class deals.

The CLS deal (and several others) are on the MB website. Under the Sales, Current Offers tab.
