    Using your numbers with base MF of .00130 and RV of 67%, I get a pre-tax payment of $599.43/mo for 27 months. Your quote seems pretty good.

    Thanks!

    .00128 (RWD) or .00127 (4Matic).

    58% residual for either.

    Hello- and thank you for your work making this such a helpful site!

    I am currently looking into getting the 2014 E550 coupe and I would like to know what the lease rate (MF) and residual is for 36mo/12k. Also, are there any incentives with this? I spoke with a finance rep in Fort Lauderdale and they quoted 0.0024 - which I thought was ridiculously high. He said hey hold 3 points over the 0.0021 that is the standard. Needless to say, I am trying another dealership.

    I am also tossing up the idea of getting the 2014 E350 sedan- which I was quoted at MSRP $65,680 - VIP Discount ($10,000) = $55,680 selling price + $1724.58 balance on my current vehicle. The numbers they gave on this vehicle are:

    E350 Sedan MF= 0.00136
    27mo/12k = 67% residual 36mo/12k = 58% residual

    $1295 down 27mo/12k (67% RV)= $703 + tax

    $1295 down 36mo/12k (58% RV)= $719 + tax

    or

    $2500 down 27mo/12k (67% RV)= $655 + tax

    $2500 down 36mo/12k (58% RV)= $683 + tax

    I am far more interested in the E550 but I can't justify the MF I am being quoted. What is a MF that should be quoted? Also- and very importantly- what dealer fees should I expect and which can I negotiate out? I definitely do not want a lease end fee, which I have had on all 3 of my previous MB leases. I'd like to know what fees I can avoid and which ones I should expect to be required.

    Thank you so much!!

    does anyone know if MF is different between autopay and no autopay? standard MF for E 3350 sedan 4MATIC is 0.0013 but i heard with autopay its possibly 0.0012?

  • dkeats99dkeats99 FloridaPosts: 5

    I just got back numbers on an E550 coupe from a different dealer. MSRP $71,675.00 DIscount $10k = $61,675.00 + $367.34 tax (FL is 6%, I dont know where this comes from) + $1393 Tag and Title Fees (FL tags are super cheap - like $80ish) + $699 Doc Fee + $1095 Acq Fee - $3500 USAA rebate = $61,729.00 + $1724.58 trade payoff = $63,454.22.

    36mo/12k - 0 down $961, $1725 down $905, $2725 down $874

    Does this seem like a good deal? I think its curious that they left the acq fee off the four square- but it was included in the calculation of the total price.... kind of like a "ghost" fee...

    What can I do to make this a better deal?

    Yes. Autopay reduces the MF by .0001.

    MF for the E550 coupe is "standard" - which means a range from .00195 to .00225. This is before any dealer inflation - like you saw at dealer 1.

    Acquisition fee is also marked up - base for MB is $795.

    RV for 36/12 is 54% - using your numbers above I get $886.70 before tax with $0 down.

    Looks like there is room to negotiate.

    I will attempt to get the acquisition fee down to $795- but the document fee of $699, is that normal? My previous lease had $489- but can this be negotiated out? I also want to get rid of any lease end fee as well.

    Also, is it normal to see a fee of $367.34 for tax included with the lease numbers? I thought tax should be included with the monthly payment.

    Finally, the "tag and title fees" - the annual rate for a FL plate isn't more than $100- and on my old lease, there was only a $4 charge for title. Am I missing something here?

    @dkeats99 said:

    Dealer/document fees are ridiculous, but it's often easier to negotiate a lower price to make up for it, rather than fixate on that charge.

    Upfront tax is for taxable items paid upfront. Acquisition fee, doc fee and that rebate are probably all taxable. Since they aren't in the lease payment, they are taxed upfront.

    I would definitely question the tag/title fees..

  • Is Mercedes running unpublished or secret incentives for the E-Class as Edmunds does not show any incentives right now, but dealers are discounting ~$8k from MSRP. It would be easier to negotiate if anyone can provide the incentives for each E-class cars. Any advise will be appreciated.

    Nothing that I'm aware of. Edmunds incentives come from a different source than my data. I'm sure there are incentives from the factory that are being passed on to the consumer; we may never know about them, other than the large discounts from sticker that you're seeing.

    We are on the same boat,

    Most are offering 8K.

    I've been calling up California Dealers and they seem to provide good #'s. They are going "X" under invoice rather than 8k off. 8k off to me is not fair as you know, the more options you buy, you're not getting discounted for those.

    Let me know if you find better than 5500 under invoice.

  • ghstudioghstudio Posts: 950

    Invoice price is an artificial number created to help salesmen make believe that's their real cost. The actual cost of the car is considerably less. Car companies have been increasing the 'invoice price' so dealers can claim they don't have any room to discount ... Don't believe this fake price.

    good afternoon, can you please tell me what the residual value % and money factor are for a 36 mo, 17k mile per year lease (I think MB actually offers an 18k mile option) for a 2014 E350 Sport 4matic?

    thanks!

    .00130 MF and 56% residual for 36mo, 15K/yr. I don't have info on mileage allowances over 15K/yr, but if Mercedes does offer 18K/yr, the residual would be 2% lower.

    I actually don't know how much each MSD reduces the money factor by for MB, just that a maximum of 10 can be applied.

    Each MSD reduces the MF by .00007 (so the max 10 MSDs would reduce the MF by .0007). However as ghstudio explained, only one pay is possible with special MFs.
