  • 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,

    PSMD
  • 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.

  • Certainly psmd. Mercedes-Benz Financial's January buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 C300 4Matic with 10,000 miles per year are .00087 and 62% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 48-month lease are .00087 and 59%.

    Hi Car Man,

    Thank you very much for the buy rate information. I see how they have pushed up the money factor.

    Would you please post the same info for 7k & 12k miles please?

    The selling price is listed at $40,176.90 (MSRP: $47,135). There is a $297.16 cash cap reduction, and total insurance of $785. Then I've got a T-1pay fee-prod(w) of $1,201.35 and T-1pay Annual Fees of $361.

    Thanks!
    -Anocer

    Edit: Also, the LEV Amt is $34,382.88
  • You're welcome Anocer. The residual values for those residual values would be 1% higher and 1% lower, respectively.

    The selling price that you were quoted on this car looks good.

    Hey Guys,
    My friend just passed this deal up for a 2013 Audi A4 Premium Plus with Navigation. I told him he was nuts! The C300 4-matic has an MSRP of $43,780 with Premium 1 package, Becker Map Pilot, Rear deck Spolier, Burl Walnut Wood Trim. Selling Price with the Winter Event $2,000 rebate was $37,327. The lease was for 24 months, 12,000 miles per year, money factor of .00077 with auto pay and residual of 72%. The Audi was a year longer lease, $139 more per month and another $650 out of pocket.

    Ok question guys I need major help on some numbers. I do not know much about this and am trying to get a good deal on a c300.
    Mercedes c300 4matic: 47390 is there listed price at dealership
    I want to put 1000$ down. Maybe 2000$ (get numbers for both)

    Thanks, Will

  • Hi Car Man and everyone else:

    A California dealer made this offer on the last 2012 on the lot. Seems like a good deal, but would welcome all comments.

    C250 Sport sedan with Premium 1 package, Multimedia package, Keyless Go, Lane Tracking Package

    MSRP - $42,465

    Supposedly basing the lease on $35,000 after discount

    $950 down at 15,000 miles/yr -

    $468 for 24 months or $479 for 36 months

    All comments are welcome.

    Thanks,
  • To clarify, the $950 (actually $928) is only first month and DMV fees. The quoted money factor is .00132.

    The monthly rates of $468 and $479 includes tax.

    Does it seem like a good deal?
