    Hi pammyd. 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 2009 C300 Sport with 15,000 miles per year are .00165 and 53%, respectively.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of a 2009 C350 are .00084 and 50%.

    Hi All,

    I am back in the C market... Is this a good offer?

    C350 with P2, Panorama, AMG 18" Wheels, iPod Integration Kit, Chrome Handle Inserts. The car is white w/ almont/mocha MB-tex.

    MSRP: 43745
    Sale Price: 39745
    Monthly Payment: 479 + tax.
    Down: 2500 (1st month, dmv, dearler\doc fee)

    I really believe I could do less... any thoughts\suggestions? My target is 450 with everything, although 475 (rent+tax) is doable.

    So here is the situation...I currently have a 2006 Lexus GS 300 AWD with approx 41K miles and 12 mos left on my 48 month lease. The current pay off is 30K as of today. I am interested in getting into 2009 Mercedes C 300 with P1 (or P2 if can get it at the right price) - another lease. Went to dealership yesterday and was given this...salesman knew nothing of my current lease situation..

    MSRP 41750
    Invoice 39489
    Selling price 41230
    License fee 250
    Doc fee 50
    sales tax 4040.54 (WA - I thought was 8.8% - this number doesn't seem to make sense either)
    total 45570.54

    39 month lease / 2500 down / MF 0.00195 / 55% residual = $646.69/month
    48 month lease / 2500 down / MF 0.00195 / 45% residual = $637.54/month

    After a lot of haggling I was finally able to negotiate him down to sell at Invoice price + tax but that didn't seem to make much difference in the prices. I feel like there is some extra fee that I am not being told about. Anyway, I am prepared to go into another dealer and still awaiting an online quote - any suggestions on how to negotiate this deal and what I should shoot for in terms of final sales price. I would love to get my monthly payment under $550/month.

    Thanks! Any advice is appreciated.

    Your only dilemma is going to be with your Toyota...oops, Lexus. The deal you are getting on the new MB is a great deal. You're getting everything at dealer cost. There is currently no rebate money to the dealer so they aren't holding anything extra. There are no hidden fee's. That's illegal. All of the states are different as far as the license or registration laws, and allowable documentary fee's. Other than that there is nothing that can be hidden from you (and even those can't).

    Well, unless you plan on paying the remaining payments with cash, this will add a substantial amount to your new payment.

    You didn't say what your current payment is, but if I assume right around $500/mo, then that remaining $6k will add approximately $200/mo to a 3-year lease.

    Go to this website, they update all the information every month:

    Actually to give credit where credit is due you should go Leasecompare since the guy at ridewithg just cut and paste the info from leasecompare.

    Hello all - I'm new to Edmunds and need advice. I currently have a 2008 CLK 350 cabriolet whose lease is ending in 6 months. Looking at a MB C 300 sport sedan on a lease - I was quoted a net price (including taxes) of $679 from SF Mercedes Benz with nothing down for 36 months and I would walk away from my current car. Milage restriction is 7500 miles per year. Should I go for this?
  • sfpacificsfpacific Posts: 3
    Forgot to mention this includes the P1 package
  • sfpacificsfpacific Posts: 3
    Just got an email with a new quote price of $659 per month from the same dealer -no money down. I just walk away from my previous car which has 6 payments left. This includes all fees and state taxes which is 9.5%. Do I do this? or should I wait a month or two?
  • qbrozenqbrozen Posts: 16,895
    $500/mo with zero cap cost reduction on a $40k car sounds pretty good.
    But you didn't say for how many months or miles.
    And what did the $1600 include if no money down?

    Just a data point for all of you looking to lease. I just signed up the offer sheet for my third MB (current are 2007 E350 4Matic and 2008 GL450):
    2009 C300 Sport 4Matic
    P2, iPod, Multimedia, Pano and walnut trim
    $525/mo, 39 mo., 10k mi., with $0 cap cost
    (total OOP of $2100, incl. 1st mo. and various fees).
    This is in NJ, with 7% tax.

    MSRP on the car us $45,290. Price for lease purposes is $41,100.

    I'm pretty happy with the numbers. It's my 2d car with this dealer (also the GL), and he knows I have a relationship with another dealer, so there was precious little time-wasting.
  • Got this offer.
    C300 4MATIC with premium package 1 and Ipod and automatic, Black exterior and black interior
    39 month Lease with 10K per year
    MSRP = 39600.00
    Negotiated price = 36800.00
    Money factor 0.0002
    Residual = 51.7% = 20,500.00
    Monthly = 441.00 Incl taxes (IL)
    Cap cost reduction = 1750.00
    Total Out of pocket including taxes+ 1st month + title = 2543.00

    Some one please tell me if this is a good one or not. I am new to lease.

    Updating my above post, I got down to $505/mo with another dealer, but ended up going back to the original one when he went to $479/mo. (price basis of $39,000 and change on a car w/MSRP over $45,000).

    I don't think the $479 is truly indicative of the market for a C300 4Matic w/P2, etc., though. Don't walk in expecting to get to that. I think there were other factors in play there. I'd guess the $505 is a more realistic expectation of pushing a dealer about as far as he'll go.
