    Hi dthorn1. Mercedes' lease program on the 2010 C300 is completely different in August than it was in July. Mercedes pulled the plug on its lease support for the '10 C-Class and replaced it with dealer cash. Specifically, there is $4,100 on the '10 C300 Sedan.

    Mercedes-Benz Financial's new buy rate money factor for a 36 month lease of this car is .00260. The residual value for this car is 55% for 15k, 57% for 12k, and 58% for 10k leases.

    Hi Car_man,
    What is the Money Factor and residual value for the 2011 C300? Could you please post the residual for 12K and 15K.
    Are the values same for Sport and Luxury models?

  • Carman:
    Looking to pull the trigger on the C300 in question #773-your thoughts???
  • mattbogden's post above shows he was able to take advantage of the $4100 marketing support on his lease deal. That's great. Can anyone else confirm that the marketing support is available when negotiating the sales price on a lease transaction. Thanks in advance for your reply!

    C300, Premium package, automatic, AWD - MSRP $40,275
    Cash Price - $33,065
    Residual Value - $23,762 (58%)
    0 Money Down
    $475 (includes Tax & 3yr maintenance program)
    $639 due at signing to cover title and license

    Any thoughts as to a better deal I can negotiate, or does this seem okay?

    Thanks in advance for any input.

    Here are the deatils of my deal:
    2010 CS300 Sport w/ Navi
    Appearance proction-$399
    dor guard -$100
    Disct ($3345)
    MB Disct. ($4100)
    1923 tax
    $ 548 tag
    $8 _battery
    $599Dlr fee
    Include 3 yr maint & tint
    One Pay $17401

    This is way out from your deal of $12661. Where is the difference????
    Am I that far off $4740???
    The only difference in the car is the Navigation??
    Your thoughts.
  • mattbogden - the difference appears to be the (1) fourizonly007's deal was a C300 Sport (base) with automatic while yours was likely a C300 Sport 4Matic; and (2) fourizonly007's lease was for 36mo/12K (with a likely residual of 57%) and yours was for 36mo/15K (with a likely residual of 55%. When I ran the numbers it accounted for approx a $4,000 difference (I couldn't figure it exactly because I'm not sure what the MF is for a One Pay deal).
