I am thinking about getting a new car. I will try and buy it on the AMEX, if they agree my application.

Good plan. Dealer's face was a picture when I produced it! Just gotta force yourself to pay it off within the interest free period - otherwise could wind up with nastily high interest payments ... other option would be to switch it to another product. AMEX can be a pain though - lots of places won't accept it.

I was thinking about that. I can't find a list online either.

When I bought my RIB, I slapped my AMEX down and the dealer almost had a stroke. He didn't want to take it due to the portion he had to pay to AMEX. The compromise was that he knocked off $500 or so, in exchange for a cheque...

Yep about that - is why they can give so much back.

I had an interesting conversation with a customer of mine years ago about how they had negotiated a cut of the amex percentage in exchange for allowing AMEX to be accepted in their outlets. The negotiations at the large business level can get very interesting!
