Bro i think your post is very misleading.
A brand new 2016 GLE 450AMG retails between 79k-84k at the dealership excluding destination charge n shipping.
You can then add the clearing and the car dealer's profit markup.
Use 81,500usd(median price) n Naira at 455.
Unless the dealer is Uncle Dangote who still gets forex at official price, i don't think 57m is an overprice

19naia:
Buyers Beware.. This is how Nigeria gets overpriced and world investors push to devalue the Naira to keep pace with the overpricing of Nigeria.

Look at what these cars are listing for in USA in slightly used or like new condition. Also one snap shot showing MSRP(manufacturer suggested retail price) at less than N22m. The manufacturer: mercedes benz company is the one saying the true price at less than N22m.

The added costs of Shipping, clearing, insurance and service fees to transaction agent will still be less than N30m if you buy direct from USA and it may even be cheaper in Europe. AMG version no even reach N40m.
Don't let people like this crash the economy and Naira value any lower. This is how Nigeria becomes overpriced with a low standard of living to offer in return.

The question is why would you use N455 exchange rate to close the gap between fair price and the price gouging? Unless it is really hard to come by the dollars in Nigeria? Maybe i could be underestimating the currency crisis there but thats still not enough to justify the listed price on NL.

Lets not forget that the advertised car is in No way showing signs of being an AMG model.
My info is not misleading when you see the photo shots of MSRP direct from the manufacturer as the retail price. MSRP is not factory price, it is the price control marketing done by the manufaturer which includes the dealer markup/profit. Of course dealers have the chioce to sell above MSRP but they will lose business if they stray far from MSRP=retail price. Retail price implies dealer profits included.

So if you are justifyng a price based on AMG pricing for a vehicle that is not AMG, you are the one misleading. If you are suggesting there is still US or European dealer markup to add to MSRP value, then you could be misleading.

In the end, the only dealer adding to the price is the dealer in Nigeria and we know why Nigeria's economy and currency will never settle to stability. Price controls such as implied by MSRP are never respected in Nigeria. Nigeria consistently overprices, from food to hotels, cars and so on. Thats why the EU is calling to further devalue the Naira from the already sorry state of 315-455 across the markets. All this overpricing will come back to bite the price gouging import dealers when they have no more customers, and then the dealer will beg customers to buy it for N22m.

Bottom line is that the car is a <$70k car from the dealer Abroad and that is the price if it was overpriced abroad. I was just at the official Mercedes Dealer here in my home city in USA. I saw everything from Maybach, new AMG of various models and all the range of new mercedes vehicles. I can go to the dealer some day again and take pictures for you and post a business card of a sales representative for anyone to chat with in person.
If i am wrong, you best prove it by listing options included in the car ,because only added premium options can justify a $79k-$84k price. If the seller is not clear enough about any added option charges, its just another example of poor quality of service in Nigeria, poor standard of living in Nigeria and an overly priced Nigeria for all the lacking and poor state it has to provide. And that is the recipe behind the perpetual freefall of the Naira as it has since the Naira was born out of the Pound.

If i am wrong, start showing proof of any added premium options that would turn a $67k car into a $79k-$84k car. And the quality of service and envorions the car is advertising in It is hardly calling for such a huge markup in price on the Nigerian dealer side. But of course we know why such markup is being imposed. It is in keeping with the market practice culture of Nigeria that sees it sky jack prices of anything while neglecting quality and prowess over the product being tendered..

No blame Buhari when Nigeria costs more than USA ,but keeps in a state of quality well reflected in the poor state of the Naira with instability of the economy. Price control is a real aspect of any functional economy. Go and revise the fuel scarcity issues of 2015-2016 and how the fuel station dealers caused serious damage to the various local economies by charging fuel prices beyond reasonable standards. Nigeria, will charge you above reasonable price for the car and then come again to charge you above reasonable price every time you go to fuel the car, and then accuse you of misleading when you lay out all the first hand details of cost from manufacturer to retail market and export to beyond.

Sorry, i cannot agree with you until you spell out any added premium options in said vehicle. It would be prudent salesmanship to have included such info in the original for sale posting. I will give credit though, to the seller ,for at least agreeing to negotiation grin

Bro the GLE coupe comes in 2 petrol trims namely
The GLE 450 n the GLE 63S.
And for a car to be brand new mileage shd be no more than 100.
All the examples u showed count as used cos the lowest mileage there is over 2k.
If the poster had showed us a 2016 wit ovet 2k miles n the clock U wd hve the reason to vent it on him

Your are still overlooking the fact that he is not showing evidence an AMG model. The ones i showed with over 2k miles driven ,are AMG models.
If you pay close attention and forgo your bias, you will see where i shared info about MSRP.. Manufaturer Suggested Retail Price for a Non-AMG model. It was showing MSRP of less than $70k. MSRP is retail price for a vehicle fresh from the factory with no more miles than are required to deliver and test the vehicle.

I have been trying to tell you, Nigerians do not respect price controls such as is intended through MSRP. Your disregard for my mention and showing of MSRP is a sign that you sef are well cultured in the dysfunctional market practices that make Nigerian economy and currency what it has proven to be since the inception of the Naira after Independence.

Its OP's business and not mine to tell him what price to sell nor how to be as a sales person.. lipsrsealed
But my own is concern for the customer's wallet in the sorry state of Nigerian economy. We are all customers in this life, including you and OP. What goes around will come around and eventually become the state of the entire economy and will also become the value of the currency we tender within the economy.
Don't blame Buhari when Naira value is equal to used toilet paper and the cost of living is as high as the moon. He is not the one in the open market making bad market practices that are destined to crash the economy again and again...

19naia is right.. ..one of my uncles bought this same type of GLE model and his own was even AMG version.. .brand new from the USA....and everything he spent including to get the car to his house right from the cost of purchase to the clearing here amounted to the total sum of #47m.. ..i keep wondering where our naija dealers are getting their prices from.. .especially for this version that's neither 4matic nor AMG. .. undecided undecided undecided

clearing the car in nigeria ..... u will know that customs are not your friend..... 2016 suv and mercedes benz for that matter... customs show us pepper....... i will urge u if you dont feel buying directly at ur finger tips in nigeria ,you can go ahead to ship a 2016 german vehicle and you will knw the real drill.... customs makes our price of vehicle a little higher.... and make it seems that is we car dealers that are making our cars over priced NO. the thing is kind of affecting our business.... the high goes the exchange rate the higher the clearing charges...... now most people cant afford clearing 10cars at the same time cos they we run out at loose,most dealers we clear the 2cars and the remaining 8cars they fly them in,i guess u knw what i mean....


now this vehicle up here has full duty paid on it...... so you dont expect the price to be the same with the one smuggled in.....ofcourse , a car genuinely bought in america and smuggled into nigeria,the importer wont mind selling for 38m naira without duty when he purchased it for 33m naira.. but for mine ,mine is fully paid in the duty.... do you know if i shipped it in through aircargo and paid the full duty? well i never said my price was a fixed price ,its subject to negotiations.

thank you..... #God Bless Nigeria

I admire how you put. Foward your explanation. Cool guy. The other put did raise a genuine concern. So our customs collect excess of 10m on one car. Chai! Nairalanders will you keep quite!
