  • Sorry, I meant to say I am asking for the C350 Coupe. 36 Months, 15K Miles. Thanks!
  • Car_man,

    What is the residual and money factor for a MB c300 4matic with 15k miles on a 36 month lease?

    Thanks!
  • Just signed papers on a C250 with P01 and Multimedia package for $343/mo. MSRP was $41,870. Don't usually like such a long term but plan to turn in early anyway. $1000 was total out of pocket, so included tax, title, etc and 1st pmt. ">Transferred a tag too which helped a bit.
  • Based on the messages I am reading here and the deal I just got on a C250 Luxury they are leasing cars about 5K below invoice. I don't know exactly why they are doing this, but December must be a great time to lease. The MSRP on the car I leased was about $44,300 but with the residual and MF the price paid was mid 35's. And the lease price included 3 years of prepaid maintenance plus I was able to sign and drive with -0- OOP and only 35 more payments to make (low 400 was the all in lease price per month)
  • Seriously? Based on the (rough) numbers you posted, it should work out to around $340 per month before tax with a true $0 down ($795 acquisition plus TTL rolled in).
  • I certainly do goas123. Mercedes-Benz Financial's December buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 C350 Sedan with 15,000 miles per year are .00160 and 63% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    When negotiating your deal on this car, make sure to take advantage of the $2,000 Winter Event Certificate that is out there on it.

  • Now you tell me ;). The money factor for the '13 C350 Coupe is the same, but the 36/15 residual value is 62%.

    Hi there.. this is my first time trying to lease and I went to a mercedes dealer in california.
    C250 details:
    Premium package
    Multimedia package
    (No other options included)
    MSRP: $44830. He is offering residual 71% and 0.00199 Money factor (I thought the MF was little high) The car has 60 miles on it but the dealer says it is brand new and not a demo model.
    Negotiated selling price: $37202
    Bank fee added by dealer: $1095

    On 24 months lease with 15k miles he offered payment $445 with tax.
    Can you please advise me if this is a good deal? I was hoping that the payment would be under $400 with the negotiated price.

    I have been shopping for a C250/C300 in the east coast. Based on your MSRP, it seems this is a C250 coupe, correct? The MF for C250 has been indeed 0.0012 (higher than C300's 0.00087). According to my calculations, the invoice of this car is more than $42000, meaning the selling price is close to $5000 below invoice. That would be a very good deal around here. I'm not sure of the implications of "new car but has 60 miles".

    However, your monthly payment amount of $445 doesn't add up. It should be well under $400 with that MSRP, selling price, residual factor, and MF, assuming sales tax of 10%
  • ariazariaz Posts: 53
    with the number you posted, your payment should be around $361.23/ month. not including the bank fee.
  • Thanks Clint for the reply. Yes that is correct, the invoice was just above $4200 so i did negotiate a good selling price... I too was arguing with the sales guy that he payment should be well under $400 with this selling price .. he is using MF 0.00199 and Residual value 71% for 2 year lease 15 k miles.. payment $ 409 + 9% tax ($445 total) . I think he is using a very high MF to jack up the payments, correct? What do you think I should do?

    Also bank fee or acquisition fee mentioned to me before the paperwork was $ 795 and suddenly after negotiating the price it increased to $ 1095!
  • Thanks Ariaz for the reply. As per my calculation it should have been around $ 360 with tax + $30 with the bank fee so i think what you are saying is absolutely right. I think he is using a very high MF to jack up the payments, correct? What do you think I should do?

    Also bank fee or acquisition fee mentioned to me before the paperwork was $ 795 and suddenly after negotiating the selling price it increased to $ 1095!
  • Guys I just wanted to clarify that the $1095 payment is also added to the payments so I am not paying it upfront. OOP I am paying drive off fees $900 including 1st payment, title and registration.

    Is the bank fee included when calculating the finance fees using the MF?

  • Here's a deal we just got. 2013 C250 coupe. Almost fully loaded. MSRP $49,600. Purchase price $39,400. 24 month lease. $1,500 drive off. Deal includes 2 year pre-paid maintenance. $386 per month before tax.
  • I got a 2013 C250 White exterior with red leather interior. No other options other than the red leather. Includes 2 years maintenance rolled into the deal.

    2 year lease
    Total out of pocket $2000 (including all fees)
    Payment $299/month including tax

    I'm in Los Angeles, California

    Acquisition fee was listed as $1095 on the contract. I got this car from Santa Monica WI Simonson Mercedes, but even my last car 2008 ML350 Edition 10 was also same $1095 fee at MB of Encino.

    My other option that I had negotiated a few weeks prior at another dealer was for a White/Red C250 with AMG wheels, Becker NAV, and Rear Spoiler.
    That was also $2k out of pocket with $330/mo including tax, but did not include maintenance. With maintenance, they wanted $340/mo including tax. I walked away because they wouldn't include the maintenance in the $330/mo price.

    Where can I find prices like these in the NY/NJ area?

    I am looking to lease the 2013 C300

    And I am getting quotes for 350-400 a month including tax and 1600 down for fee plates and first month

    Any idea how I can lower this
  • hi everyone, I just stumbled across this forum because I may be picking up my new ride tomorrow but I want to make sure I'm getting a good deal. I was hoping someone could give me some info before I pull the trigger on this, I'd appreciate any words of advice.

    Here's what i'm looking at leasing:

    C350W $41,400
    040 Black
    121 Black MB Tex
    320 320 Multimedia Package: 7.0" Color Displ $2,790
    736 Black Ash Wood Trim
    786 18-Inch AMG Twin 5-Spoke Alloy Wheel $1,040
    917 PZEV-Emission, USA

    SUBTOTAL $45,230
    DESTINATION & DELIVERY $905
    TOTAL $46,135

    I'm looking at a 36 month lease and I am going to put down $3k. I've been quoted $427 plus tax = $461 total monthly for 10k miles per year or $477 total (including tax) monthly for 12k miles/yr which seems like a no brainer for the extra $16/month. He told me there are no other costs or fees. Is that true and if so is this a good deal or should I push a little more?

    Can anyone help me out here? Thanks in advance, much appreciated.

  • Ditto to last post. I am in Miami. Negotiating with dealer. The lease on my 2010 MB C300 can be terminated early as I am within the last 4 payments. However, the dealer is being pretty lackadasical. Looking better than last deal- which was 484.01 incl maintenance on C300 with P1, white/tan mbtex sport for 36 months, 15k miles. Any ideas in SFL as far as getting that whittled down significantly???? BTW I also have a fleet incentive
  • How am I doing, how much fat left on this bone?
    In Miami area

    MB C250
    P1
    White/MB tex
    15,000/year
    36 months
    $700 drive off, includes 1st month
    $479 incl tax ($445 w/o tax) and prepaid maintenance

    MB is accelerating 4 months on previous C300 lease & building 1 unpaid payment into this lease. Also includes a fleet incentive
  • FWIW, I think you can do better. I leased a 13 c250 with P1 and Multimedia for 30 months with 18k miles for 467 including tax. Nothing down. I am in Palm Beach.

    Hi Car Man,

    Can you please tell me what is the Mercedes-Benz Financial January buy rate lease money factor and residual value for the 2013 C250 Sport Sedan?

    The best I have so far is 72.95% & .00150 for 24 months at 10,000 miles per year on this:

    MSRP: $47,135 (Sport Pkg, Lighting Pkg, P1, MM, Keyless-Go)
    $408/mo including tax
    $2400 drive away
    (includes maintenance & 1st month)

    I need to get this at no more than $400/mo, $2k down, with 12000 miles per year.

    Located in Los Angeles and this is the second C250 I'll be leasing. Tuesday the 29th is the desired signing date so any insight is greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!

    Car-Man- Can you please post January Rates for a
    C3004matic for 36 and 48 months for 10,000 Miles.
    Thank you,

  • I'd be happy to help you out Anocer.

    Mercedes-Benz Financial's January buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 24-month lease of a 2013 C250 Sport Sedan with 10,000 miles per year are .00120 and 72% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    As you can see, if your credit is in good shape the dealer is likely marking your car's money factor up slightly to add additional hidden profit to your deal. See if you can get them to use the buy rate to calculate your payment.

    It would be a good idea for you to find out this car's selling price as well. The selling prices of leased vehicles are negotiable, just as if you were paying cash for or financing them. Without this number, it is more difficult to tell how large a dealer discount you are being given and in turn if there's any more room to negotiate.
