    Hi mrtrance. The C-Class' lease program varies by trim level. For now I will assume that you are interested in a Luxury 2WD model. Let me know if you want something different.

    Mercedes-Benz Financial's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2010 C300 Luxury 2WD with 10,000 miles per year are .00057 and 58%, respectively.

    Car_Man,

    Would you be so kind as to let me know the money factor and residual for a C300 4Matic Sport on a 7500 miles per year 36 month lease.

    Thanks a lot

    Thanks Car_Man, is the money factor on luxury better than sport right now?

    it is sort of stiff in Seattle. C350 MSRP 48375, asked 43k (looking at $5000 discount mentioned in Car_man's post), but dealer only willing to sell 44773. So just $300 below KBB invoice. Reason is because there are "hidden" fees, and the car needs to be transported from out of state. Not sure if we can call this a good deal, do you guys think this deal is workable?

    Lease MF 0.00172 with 57% Residual

    I know in bay area at least people can get 1500 off invoice... Advise needed!!

    Is your old vehicle a Mercedes lease too? If so a Mercedes dealer can waive upto $3000 worth of damages...

    Nope the old vehicle was a BMW...taking that into consideration, what do you think? I made a mistake the Adjusted Capitalized Cost is $38,061, not $39,769.
  • Can someone tell me if it's reasonable? It's my first time leasing so I appreciate all help!

    24 months/10k miles (C300 luxury)

    MSRP: $42,690
    Selling price: $38990
    out-of-pocket: $1,037.08
    Money factor: 0.00104
    Residual: $30,309.90 (77.7%)

    Monthly payment: $510.08
    For every $1000 down, I get $41 off my monthly payment.

    Kindly help me evaluate this deal, thank you!
  • Got a quote for 2010 C300 MSRP $35,965 12K/36 months.
    Drive off is 1st month plus TTL $906.xx
    Monthly payment is $391.xx (including CA tax).

    You guys think I can do better?

    Just checked out the c300 sport, manual. Dealer is really trying to play games even though I know what I should be paying.

    Sticker Price: 34,695 + 875 dest. = 35,570
    36 month lease/12k miles
    Offer from them: 0 down (cap reduction), 499 a month.

    I continually said no, they tried telling me the selling price was 34,400 with a less than 1% interest rate and a 60% residual, which makes no sense. I used the June numbers beforehand to see what I was expecting (.00057 and 57% residual). At those numbers I come up with a 453 payment (NJ tax). Needless to say I left, disappointed.

    Carman, what are the July numbers for a 12k lease, so when I go back with a write up I can argue exactly what I want?

    Also with the "rarity" or manuals in my area, what kind of wiggle room should I have on the 34,400? Invoice from truecar.com is 32,723.

    I realized my previous request did not have all the information you need..so here is what i am looking for: 36 month lease on a 2010 C300 Luxury 4 matic.

    Need the residual percents and money factors for a10k per year and 15k per year lease

    thanks
  • golftxgolftx Posts: 5
    fourizonly007, is this for a base C300, manual? could you tell me which dealer you are talking to? i haven't seen a quote this low on a base C300 automatic. this look pretty good

    do you have the rest of the numbers? sales price, money factor, and residual?
  • Hi golftx,

    It's base on C300 automatic w/sports package. The dealer is in So. Cal. I don't have the rest of the numbers yet, but I've got an incredible deal on a CLK from the same dealer before. Shoot me an email.

    Greetings larwil324. Here's the information that you're looking for.

    Mercedes-Benz Financial's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2010 C300 RWD Sport with 10,000 miles per year are .00057 and 58%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    Ad one percent to this car's residual value for a lease with only 7,500 miles per year.

    No problem, leo1977. The money factors for the Luxury and Sport models are exactly the same.

    Hello karpy. For me, the easiest way to evaluate a deal is to look at the vehicle's MSRP and selling price. The selling prices of leased vehicles are negotiable, just as if you were paying cash for or financing them. Without these numbers it is difficult to tell how large a dealer discount you are being given. Let us know what they are and I'm sure that either myself or another helpful community member will gladly let you know what they think.

    Hi neil22. Here's the information that you're looking for. Mercedes-Benz Financial's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 2010 C300 Luxury 4Matic with 15,000 miles per year are .00069 and 55%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The residual value for an otherwise identical lease with only 12,000 miles per year would be 2% higher.

    The residual value for a 10k lease would be 3% higher.

    Thx for the reply. Total MSRP per sticker is 39,485. It's a pretty basic 4matic with sirus and heated front seats. The vehicle sales price was 36255 plus 795 acq fee.

    I rolled everything upfront so I only paid 1st mth payment of 435 plus license fees and some other stuff which came to about 700 at signing. What you guys think? Lease is 36 months/10k per year. Thx.
  • golftxgolftx Posts: 5

    Is that with or without tax?
  • golftxgolftx Posts: 5
    So I confirmed that the buy rate on the employee program is .0002 (sorry for my last post, I added an extra 0). Some dealers seem to have plenty, others say they have none, who knows who's playing games
  • car4wifecar4wife Posts: 1
    This will be my first time leasing, and I am a little nervous. Can someone tell me what would be a good deal on a c300 sport with
    prem1
    multimedia
    navigation and a MSRP OF 43,945. I want a lease for 15,000 miles a year for 3 years and I am willing to pay 2,500 down. what sales price should I attempt to negotiate. and there are two benz dealerships in my area only 15 minutes apart.
