    thanks. I feel down of 3500 is too much for a 671$ monthly payment for 48 months. the quote did not show bankfee. I will inquire. I personally don't find this offer interesting or appealing at all...
  • Hi,

    2009 Black on Black E-Class 4-matic with P1 package & Sports package

    MSRP including destination is $58, 275

    Price quoted to buy is $45,796

    The car is brand new with 10 miles. Is this a good deal? Can I do better?

    Dealer also said he would do a 3 yr 100,000 mile extended warranty from Mercedes for $3700. Is that a good deal?

    Thank You for your responses

    Hi,

    The invoice on the car is 54257
    minus fact to dealer - 6000
    equals 48257
    minus your quote - 45706
    equals 2551 under invoice

    May I ask who and where the dealer is? On the surface it seems like a good price, but I need to look more at what others are paying. Thanks
  • Hi,

    I actually got this deal from 3 different dealers. All are located in Chicago. I just picked up the car on Sat and wow it is amazing!

    Hello. Which Chicago dealerships quoted you this price? I am also in the market. Thanks
  • jbrad721jbrad721 Posts: 3
    haven't done the compare yet, but will. What did you pay for your 09?
  • Several dealerships:

    Motorworks, Knauz Motors, and Loeber Motors.

    Hope that helps...

    See my post #475. I think that is the info you are looking for.

    New here but didn't see a solution, so thought I'd ask:)
    I'm keeping my E320, no questions, no doubts - she has run like a well made Mercedes since I bought her and regular maintenance has kept her that way, so that's that! What I'm looking for are places to compare having the body restored to showroom condition.

    There are minor scratches in the paint, an ugly 1" scrape from a commuter park-n-ride lot and the paint has oxidized on the hood. The leather isn't cracked or dirty, no body damage and guess it's more cosmetic than anything.

    I was quoted $5,000 to strip her down to the nub and bring her back to life, new knobs for the door (those suckers fall off too easily) but that was before MB decided all parts had to come strictly from them.

    Has anyone had their baby redone, I'm only looking to get ballpark estimate what this might run. Currently I'm in Washington state but will take it out of state for a reliable and conscientious shop.

    Thanks for any suggestions...remember, I have no intentions of selling or trading this car in. She's simply beginning to show her age :blush:
    PS - That image is not my car!

    I closed this deal and took delivery 4-26-09 at Coggin MB in Ft Pierce, FL

    E350 with:
    289 Wood Steering wheel,
    413 Panorama sunroof,
    P02 Premium II Pkg.

    MSRP $61,045
    Selling/purchase price 48,000
    + Dealer Fee 599
    + Acquisition Fee 1,095
    + Prepaid maintenance 1,010 4 years
    Capitalized Cost $50,704

    Down payment 3,960
    + taxes, tags, fees 580
    ( I elected to pay $5,000 in cash to keep payment under $500, so that was my total out of pocket. However, at 1%, it might be desirable to finance more.)

    48 monthly payments of 476.53 + 21.04 maintenance
    TOTAL 497.57
    12,000 miles per year
    Residual 42% (25,639)
    Money Factor .00038 equal to .91 APR

    With 21.3% discount and less than 1% cost of financing, this seems to be a pretty good deal.

    The price is a good deal of $48k but why lease already for 48 months no less. Does that maintanence includes tires and brakes which you most likely will need after 3 plus years of ownership and that will either cost you during or at the end of you lease so tack on another $1.5k for tires and brakes.

    After 4 years you will have paid $476.53*48 = $22,873 + $5,000 + $1,500 for tires and brakes = $29,373. I am excluding what you are paying for maintenance. Plus your residual is still based on the $61k price not the $48k which is bringing down your payment. In this scenario I would already buy the car although it seems like your only concern is the monthly cost to be under $500. You could have bought a certified pre owned 2007 for $30k.

    I did consider those things you brought up. The prepaid maintenance covers only those items in the service book that must be done periodically. Tires and such are not included. Prepaying the maintenance saves about $350.

    The effective interest rate of .91% makes the lease attractive. My total cost if I buy the car for the residual is still basically $48,000 plus interest, maintenance, taxes and dealer fees etc.

    The $500 payment was strictly an arbitrary choice that doesn't really matter - just a preference. I would actually be better off if I let them roll more of the cost into the payments with only a .91% interest rate.

    If I bought a 2007 for $30k, the interest rate would probably be around 7% and I don't want a used car. Different strokes.

    I know the july incentive is 10k, should I wait to pull the trigger?

    Thinking about leasing or purchase E550 2009. Any special rates on the E550 or is it just limited to the E350 2009?
    :) Thanks
  • drdrilzdrdrilz Posts: 5
    no special financing rates for the E550.

    Justs ordered a 2010 E350 Sport for delivery in Sindelfingen in Nov in conjunction with a vacation we'd planned. For ED, you pay invoice and the transportation charge is waived. You also get a free night in a hotel, they feed you and provide a couple of taxi passes to get to the factory. This is a base E350 with metallic paint the only option. The cost is $45,868 plus $399 doc fee, tax and tag. We were going to be over there anyway, so this saves the transportation charge and we don't have to rent a car to get around while there. We're really looking forward to bumming around Bavaria in a new E.

    Thank you for the information :)
  • I'm looking at leasing a 2010 E550 coupe in Florida. Options: Premium black leather, Premium 2, Appearance package, and Distronic Plus. The price is $68,590. I'm getting lease estimates with $10K down in the mid-$1000 range for 36 months with 12K miles per year. The lease payment seems high, I would expect it to be in the $900 range at most. The car is VERY NEW but has anyone leased the E550 coupe? Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  • aeggroupaeggroup Posts: 131
    $10K down? For E550 coupe? Are you serious? The best joke of the day :))))
    Wait 5-6 months and get it with no money down for about $950 a month.
    It's a new car and they will do anything to take your money, but in this economy -
    I'd give them about 6 months to chill out. You can get new S-class cheaper than this.
  • sshvhsshvh Posts: 13
    This does seem to be on the higher side - I was in a dealership earlier this week and see sub-1000 lease deals on the S550 with P2 package and about $ 7.5K down (all inclusive).

    I expect used S-Class to be a major competitor to the new E which, appearance-wise may seem different from the old E but have the same engine - if you are particular about the E-Coupe, well shop around - you should get much cheaper deals.

    I'm trying to lease a 2009 350 in So California. Can anyone tell me what the current residual and MF are on 36 month 15k/year lease? I have read about an additional 4000 off if one joins a credit union? any info on this would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Call a few dealers. They are all pushing out the 2009's, so the deals may be changing.
  • I just want to share my purchase information. I just got a brand new Mercedes-Benz E350 (with premium 1 package) MSRP=$57,425. I paid $39,000+tax+ fee, total about $43,200. I got a deal based on $10,000 (dealer cash back)+ $4,000 credit union member fleet incentive.
  • kevinc5kevinc5 Posts: 204
    Thanks for the info. Great deal! Enjoy your new E. What dealer? Was the credit union incentive limited to your specific credit union?
    Thanks
