A relative had exactly the same thing happen back when the current SL500 platform first came out in '91. His dealer had months before committed to selling him one at several thou below what they turned out to be going for on arrival. Since he only lived about an hour's flight from the port he said he would fly down there, examine the car himself, and make his own decision as to whether he would accept it with the "scratch" or not. A few minutes later they called back and said there was a mistake. His car was not the one that was scratched. Pretty obvious what was going on there!
