    Hi greggs11. The car that you are interested in probably has a spread of around $3,100 between its full MSRP and its dealer invoice price. Additionally, Chrysler is providing $3,000 lease cash and $500 bonus cash on the '07 300. That gives you a total of around $6,600 to play with. The $7,000 discount that you were quoted on this car looks very attractive to me.

    I am not personally familiar with the SRT Design trim level of this car, but the money factor that you were quoted looks about right to me.

    You would be better off not making the $1,200 down payment that you are considering making. I always advise consumers against making down payments on leases. Those who make them risk losing part or all of them if their vehicle is totaled in an accident or stolen and never recovered. Other than that, this deal looks good to me. If you like the car, I personally don't see any reason not to go for it.

  • Thanks for everyone's advice here. I ended up actually leasing a 2007 BMW 328i...the BMW was too good a deal to pass up, and a little better car for my purposed use.

    Thanks again,

    - Steve
  • Car man and all,
    I am trying to decide if this month is the time or if September will get better. Last vehicle we leased in September and it was the last of the good deals on the leftovers. Let me know what you think:

    300C SRT Design (5.7 not 6.1 engine, but includes SRT wheels, suspension, interior, etc)
    Sticker: $42,210
    Selling Price: $38,177 (employee pricing, not including rebates)
    Rebates: $4,500

    39 months/10.5k per year = $450 per month including 6% tax, $0 due at signing

    This assumes 50% residual and .00214 money; Detroit region

    I know there is $1k dealer cash in the $4,500 and this also includes loyalty. Anyone have an opinion? Next month (Sept 5) will it get a little better? Thanks for your comments.

    At this point does it make a difference, you've been in this lease for almost 4 years. I will say that if you negotate a lease on a new 300C today you can structure a deal that's much better than the one you're in now...
  • Can someone provide me with the money factor and residual value on the '08 Chrysler 300 Limited

    This is based on a 36 month lease with 15,000 miles/year.

    Thanks!
  • Can I get the latest money factor and residual for a Chrysler 300c rwd and chrysler 300 limited rwd both 3year 12k miles
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    Here you go, mike513. Chrysler Financial's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2008 Chrysler 300 Limited with 15,000 miles per year are .00085 and 47%, respectively. When negotiating your lease on this car, make sure to take the $2,000 cash incentive that Chrysler is currently providing on it into account. Chrysler is providing an additional $500 to $1,000 lease cash on this car on top of that in select regions. These cash incentives will help you to negotiate an attractive capitalized cost for your lease.

    How about a lease on a Chrysler 300C AWD - money factor & residual...please?
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    Hi moon17. I've always been fond of the 300's styling. You never mentioned how long you want to lease this car for or what mileage allowance you need, so for now I will assume that you are interested in a 36 month lease with 15,000 miles per year. Let me know if you want something different. Chrysler Financial's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2008 Chrysler 300C AWD with 15,000 miles per year are .00116 and 44%, respectively.

    Can you let me know if this looks good.

    I've been going back and forth with a couple of dealerships for a 2008 Signature Series:MSRP before discounts 35,190

    The best I've got so far is
    434 a month with 2025.00 total down which includes fees and first month payment.
    I also just got a friends and family code that I will use which wasn't figured into the price.
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    Hi bigdogny. You never mentioned the selling price of the 300 that you are interested in leasing. This is an important number for you as a consumer to know for two reasons. First, the selling prices of leased vehicles can be negotiated, just as if you were paying cash for them. Without knowing the price of the car that you want to lease you don't know how good a price you are getting it for. The second reason is that one needs the selling price of the vehicle that they want to lease is that it is necessary to calculate its lease payment. I am sure that either myself or annother helpful community member would be happy to give you their opinion of this deal if you let us know what the selling price is.

    Hi Everyone:

    I am new to the whole leasing process and would appreciate a quick how-to on the negotiation and, also, the numbers I should be looking for. I am interested in the 2008 Chrysler 300 Signature Series. (Would like the Navigation System if it doesnt change the price a whole lot). I am looking for a 36 mo lease with 12,000 miles. I see that the MSRP is $32,765.

    I, quite honestly, have no idea what a good rate or residual would be for the car or even what the residual really means.

    Also, the family discount of 3% off the price is available to me but I am not sure how this all really factors in on a lease.

    Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

    (Somewhat urgent as I know that Chrysler is abandoning its internal lease financing at the end of July and I want to be able to secure that rate if its the best available).

    Thanks so much.
  • Car Man, I am not sure that you are monitoting this message board. I want to lease a Chrysler 300C The MSPR is $45725. The selling price is $36833 + TT. The residual is $18748. The money factor is .001099. Acquisition fee is $795. I am in Texas where I must pay 6 1/4% sales tax up front. The lease quote was $619/Mo, including all taxes, title, acquisition fee and all costs. Only $619 down which is the 1st month's lease. Does this sound like a good deal? Is the residual too low? Thanks.
  • Car Man or Kyfdx: I am not sure if my last post went through or if you are monitoring this board. I want to lease a 2011 Chrysler 300C. The lease offer is: MSRP $45725 +TTL; negotiated price is $36,833 +TTL; 39 months; 12K/yr; MF .001099; residual $18748; acquisition fee $795; I live in Texas so I have to pay the entire 6/ 1/4% sales tax up front. The offer was $619/mo no money down. This includes all taxes and fees. Does this look like a good offer? Is the residual too low?
    Thanks

    Dear Car Man-

    You know so much about cars! I think thats awesome! Anyhow- I am looking to get either an EL Expedition XLT 2011 due to their deals right now and the fact that I could get one of these cars under the "A" plan (which I am not sure how it works, if you do any advice would be great! Or, I am looking to lease the 2011 Chrysler 300, which it seams only the limited has a lease special? I was wondering if you knew the latest on the money factor and residual value of the 300 and any other info I may need to know before stepping foot into the dealership? Thank you for your time. I live in Virginia if that helps at all by the way..

    Every time I have done a lease I always offer $400-$500 over invoice no more than that. If money is being thrown in I take my offer and tell them to subract the money they would receive from my offer so it goes down further. I think you may have some more wiggle room.

    I am looking at chrysler 300 too. It seems that they have new deal for October, did you get yours? What was your final deal?

    Thanks Timj757. Ally's current base lease rate and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2011 Chrysler 300 Limited with 15,000 miles per year in its Mid-Atlantic region are 0.1% and 39%, respectively.

    Chrysler does have lease support available on other 300 trim levels if you're interested.

    Chrysler is providing a $3,500 cash incentive on leases of this car in your area.

    Car Man-
    Looking for lease factor and residuals % for 2011 300C AWD, 36 month/12K yr lease.
    If there is another combination of months/miles that is the "sweet spot" let me know.
    I think there is $2500 rebate on 300C AWD + $1000 conquest through month end?
  • mil6753mil6753 Posts: 40
    Just wondered if you had any information on this?
  • mil6753mil6753 Posts: 40
    I was able to obtain residual % for the 300C AWD - 12mi/year, 36 mos should be, according to what I've read, 45%.

    I just need to get money factor converter - 2 different dealers have given me 2.2% and 1.9% APR.
  • Hi mil6753. According to the latest information that I have seen, Ally's current base lease rate for the 2012 300C AWD is 1.15%.

    Hi CarMan (and all)

    Could you tell me what the latest MF and Residuals are on the 300 Limited AWD and 300 C AWD? 12k/36 or 39 month lease whichever is the program

    I received this quote:

    300 Limited AWD
    MSRP 36080
    Selling 31700
    39 month / 12k
    .69 APR (didn't provide the money factor but I calc it at .0002875)
    $489/month

    Only inceptions out of pocket. (1st month, doc, motor vehicle)
    I just emailed to get the confirmation that the payment includes taxes.

    Seems high for the MSRP of the car.

    Thanks!! :)
