Are you over 40? I think a seasoned salesman will tend to give a lot of leniency and trust to males in their 40's and 50's.

I know I've been sorta "profiled" before for being a young Black guy looking to buy a luxury car. It's funny how quickly they change their tune once you start talking intelligently about what you're looking for.

I don't think you will be able to try the AMG though.

I'm not even sure if they have any AMG models for test drives unless you buy one.
Good luck trying to get a test drive on an AMG model. Only way is if you know someone at a Mercedes Benz dealership

i see it all the time, a lot of sales people profile others and is crazy the lengths some people have to go through just to get a test drive would be effortless to some.

the movie exit wounds didn't help at all LOL

It helps to set up an appointment with them prior to entering the dealership. They take you more seriously if you do so.
