Default looking for advice in buying Mercedes in Riyadh

Hi, Guys:

I am looking into buying a Mercedes GLK250 after my arrival in Riyadh. I have heard that almost everything is negotiable in Saudi Arabia. I am wondering how much discount of the retail price can I start my negotiation from. Any car purchase experience/advice is greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Is it a new car you are after? If so then Ramadan is the best time to buy, a lot of offers during that time.

I purchased a new Porsche last year and price was negotiable give or take 5k to 6k.

If you need any guidance or help, would be happy to assist.

The hospital is still processing my paper work so I am guessing I will arrive after Ramadan.

What should I keep in mind when negotiating with car dealer in Riyadh?

Is there any difference from the western world?

I read somewhere online that it is OK to negotiate starting at a 20% discount.

is the 5k to 6k in USD?

Thank you for your help.
