    A strange thing just happened. I placed an order for a C43 AMG Estate and agreed the price with the dealer. Just noticed on the Mercedes website that the C43 AMG Estate (and perhaps other models) have had a price increase!! Will the dealer expect me to pay the new price or honour the previous agreed price?

    If you've ordered and signed for a car at an agreed price they have to honour the contract.

    I am yet to hear of a dealer not honouring an agreed price.
    My dealer has adjusted the invoice price twice since April, however,
    he increases the discount to compensate.

    Having said that, the footnote of the order form indicates that
    no price protection is offered unless they commit to it in writing, so that
    is their get out clause.

    Its a bit confusing as the eBrochure price inc VAT is £45,230 but when you go into the Configure option it shows the price inc VAT as £45,825!!

    I agree, this is very confusing. I'd walk away and keep the Audi.

    Not sure why I should walk away from a deal that favours me with a lower price also not sure exactly what is ''Dreadful'' about it?
