Nope. If you want to buy with cash you purchase with the finance then cancel it within 14 days (paying off the amount of the loan in full, no interest is payable) so you get the car for the discounted price but without being lumbered with the dealer’s finance package.
Which is what I have done with my last 2 cars purchased though DTD and an equivalent website.

Are you seriously getting cross about car retailers not being able to claw money back from purchasers?

Not really comparable:

- Houses are an asset which increase in value over the long term, 99.999% of cars depreciate
- The alternative to buying a house is renting which generally costs as much or more than monthly mortgage repayments. The alternative to spending £27k on a new car is spending a fraction of that on an older and/or lower spec model which performs that same basic function.

Great price. Hot for being petrol too.

I'm more of a fan of leasing or PCP as I like to change every 2-3 years and keep cash in savings but for those that prefer to own it's a bargain.

Also appears for include first years road tax, as it would have been over £40k it's something like £400 a year.

Would this fall I to the higher tax when you are paying less than 30k?
I was looking at the Peugeot 3008 but this deal makes me think twice.

Yes unfortunately it does... Anything above 40k attracts the higher road fund tax.

The C180 at drive the deal falls under the 40k retail and can be had for £26685
Looks a decent price but the last time I took a Drive the deal 'deal' to my local Merc dealer they claimed to know nothing about it.
I can't see the 1.5 engine lasting very long.

I test drove the 1.5 last week and thought it was pretty awesome. Lagged a lot less than the 2 litre diesel version. Impressive vehicle.

Oh, and the gearbox was impressive!

This goes on book price not actual purchase price? Sneaky

That being the case it does seem odd that there are cars like this with a book price of a few £100 over 40k. Surely pricing it £39,999 would make more sense commercially to the manufacturer.

DTD put you in touch with their contacts who honour the price. Other dealers may or may not match it.
Avoid Merc now since they sold me a lemon and refused to acknowledge manufacturing fault and pay for it. Never again.

Does the price represent the final price including 5.7% APR Representative interest on the minimum £3000 loan?

If not, the headline must change to include this, as the cash price is £2,925 more, hence the price quoted is impossible to achieve and it is a con.

What stops the discount being reclaimed if you cancel the financing?
Properly written T&Cs should allow them to do this.
Edited by: "Common.Sense" 26th May
It's a big car and they are getting a lot of performance from the engine and putting the components under a lot of strain as a consequence. No issues if you are looking to sell the car after 60 000 miles but would not want a high mileage one of these
I wonder how much a 1 year old and 2 year old model costs
Is there 50% depreciation after year 1 based upon the fake RRP?

Fake RRP should be replaced with average selling price. There is no way a dealer could provide 32% discount without Mecedes being part of the promotion.

Your involvement with the dealer ends when you drive it off the forecourt. They don’t like it when buyers pay off within the first few months as it means they lose their commission from the finance company but that’s the risk they take. If they were able to reclaim the incentive discount they obviously would do wouldn’t they. But the can’t so they don’t. It’s a common practice to buy cars like this. So much so that I first learned of it from a dealer who ran through a price quote with me and said that if I was going to be paying the loan off quickly to avoid the interest they’d “prefer it” if I left it until after the first 3 repayments had been made, so they they got their commission.

Avoid German manufacturers. Had numerous cars from new and had very expensive repairs after 5 years, the latest a new DSG gearbox at £3500

The dealer will most probably be up for a big commission from Mercedes for selling x number of cars. It’s worth them offering a big discount to achieve this target but they’re not allowed to publicly advertise it because of the effect on other dealers.
Give the guys at DTD a call, they’re very helpful and can explain how it’s all possible. I was dubious when I first came across them but this is why they’re not allowed to say which dealer(s) it is they’re working with. They tell you who you’re getting your car from when you make a purchase.

Seriously though, I think they’re prohibited from reclaiming anything by the consumer credit regulations. Don’t ask me to quote what part - I don’t know but what’s important is that it works and is watertight. It even spells it out in the credit agreement that you sign up that you can pay off the amount of the loan in full within 14 days without penalty.

That's why you get shot of cars after warranty expires, unless it's a lexus or Toyota. You've now discovered why leasing is so popular

Well, on the other side of the argument, houses appreciate in value. Thus it's a long term investment, not a long term debt.
