    Hello again MFaizan,

    I too went to test the 528i and was not impressed with the interior after sitting in the E350 (and having my heart set on one. Mind you I have always been a BMW driver. I currently have two sitting in my garage.

    Couple of things.

    1. The 335xi and 535xi is probably the best engine BMW has produced in a very long time. There is no comparison between the twin turbo and Merc's 3.5 7 speed auto.

    2. If you really want the E350 (which by the way is a bigger car than the (335i), perhaps you want to wait until the 15th of July for Merc's new rates.

    3. If you really want the 335i still, I would urge you to wait until August. I am not promising but I have been told that August rates are going to drop for BMW across the board (perhaps not the 328i).

    Good luck on whatever you decide and keep us posted.

    Did you end up getting the lease? I was looking into one and I got quoted $600 zero down for 33 months somewhere in birmingham.

    If I were you, I would go for the 2008. They are using a lower money factor and higher residual. MBUSA did not lower the money factor for 2007. All programs ended July 5th and they did not make them any better as hoped after July 16th. The $3000.00 off MSRP for a 2007 won't get you the payment your looking for.
    Our local dealers only have a few 2007 left and they are ready to make deals on 2008 for the Summer event. I was told only a trickle of 2008 are coming in. If you can wait, the Winter Sales Event is usually a killer deal.
    Make sure to get all the specs on the deal your quoted for $600.00. It could be a non-sport E350W without P1 or P2.
    Good luck!

    I got a great offer just still too much.

    2007 E350, P1 with AMD package
    MSRP about 56k
    33 month, 5k down, 650 a month including So Cal tax, 599 w/o tax.

    I really want to pull the trigger but my budget is about 500. Dealer says he is losing about 3k on the deal, which MB is offering cash rebates to get rid of 07 stock since 08s are coming in.

    Can someone tell me what to pay for E320 bluetech with MSRP $55,000, 10K miles/year, 33 months, North Texas.

    Mercedes online calculator tell me DOWNPAY $5400 + TAX/TTL for Texas, and the Lease payment of $619/month x 33 months.
  • abindraabindra Posts: 5
    more to above question --
    Or atleast tell me, is there any reason to pay more than what mercedes online lease calculator suggests (adjusting for TTL & Taxes). If yes, how much more...

    What is AMD Package ? Anyway, I think 5K dowpayment is way too much. Call this number (718)701-2964.The name of the company is Gran Prix leasing. This is private leasing company in NY. No matter where you are they will make a deal with no money down. I quess AMD package you mean is really AMG or Sport package, which is free now at MB.
    My friend got a car from them $1,800 out of pocket including first payment, $580 per month including NY sales tax. Try it.

    I'm in the bay area (SF) and I was quoted about $800-900 for :

    2008 E350
    Sports Package
    P2 package (navi, keyless go, bi-xenons)
    Fold down seats
    ipod
    wood steering wheel

    MSRP about $56k (Invoice about $52,998)
    They said they would go down to $53-54k

    15k miles per yr
    39 month lease
    0 down (drive off around $1100)

    I have seen people with similiar leases and minimal down (maybe $1-2k) around $550-650 monthly. Are they just kidding with me? I have above 750 FICO too.

    all the local leasing companies here in brooklyn ny have that deal and no matter who i call they all pushing the e350's.
    this is the deal, they all have a coupon for them which saves you money, but they all make you buy it.
    I was offered this car with just 2000 out of pocket, that includes the DMV fees, taxes, and first month payment, something like that.
    499.00 a month, for 27 months.
    P1 package / Nav / wood, all of that.

    If you dont want to put anything down, and just pay a 1st month fee and DMV, taxes rolled into the payment, its something like 550, or 565, loosely, the dealer was jawing away but i wasnt to keen on the numbers he was throwing at me.

    They also told me that the C300/C350 is going to be similarly priced next month, will see. ;)
