    Does anyone know of Mercedes forums that have discussion of current pricing like has for BMWs? Basically somewhere to see what people are paying that is more active than here. Thanks.

    Can someone please give me the money factor and residual for the 2008 S550 4Matic? I have the numbers for the 2009 model but I'm wondering how much different the residual is for the 2008 model.

    Hi richz. Mercedes is not leasing 2008 models any longer. If you really want to lease an S550, you will have to go with a 2009 model.

    your best bet would be the forums on mbworld or benzworld dot org. They may give you better suggestions....
  • As far as I know the fuel pump is located in the gas tank intself. I would not mess with that at all !!!!! You have to dreop the tank disassemble all the lines, and mess around in the gas tank. Not a fun or safe project.
  • Carman,

    Do you know the rates for the 2010 s550 4matic 36 months 12k miles in new jersey?

    My mom is looking to get into a new S-class. She is 2 months shy of finishing her lease with BMW. We want the car to have the most safety features so Driver Assistance with Pre-Safe is something we would want to have.

    Was wondering what the current rates are and if there are any 2009's available would it be better to go with that? Would there be more flexibility with lease rates on the S400 or would the S550 be better in that regard?

    We are looking to lease for 24months-39 months with 12k miles a year and $3500 drive off. What payments would we be looking at if we were to go for it now or as opposed to April....or better yet, what time of year would be best to find a deal on this type of vehicle?

    Also, we are in Orange County and have dealt with House of Imports in Buena Park in the past. Are there any other recommendations? Just looking for the best deal possible...

    Sorry for the plethora of questions, but I'm hopeful that you guys would be of help!

    Best Regards!
  • Hi carnut12. Here's the info 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 2010 S550 4Matic with 12,000 miles per year are .00239 and 52%, respectively.

  • Hi gs451. Mercedes isn't providing lease support on 2009 models any longer. So if your mother really wants to lease her new MB, she definitely will have to go with a 2010 model.

    Mercedes-Benz Financial's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2010 S550 2WD with 12,000 miles per year are .00263 and 52%, respectively.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of a 2010 S400 are .00227 and 54%.

    I would bee happy to work up a couple of sample lease payments on these cars for you if you provide me with their full MSRPs and dealer invoice prices as your mother wants them equipped. You can find that data over in the New Vehicle Pricing section of

    Hi Car_Man,
    Basically the car's MSRP is:

    and the invoice is

    This is for an S550 with the Driver Assistance Package and the Premium 2 Package.
    I've noticed it is hard to find a car with the Driver Assistance Package, why is it? Would this affect the negotiating power with the car (i.e. since this is such a rare package, would dealers not be so flexible with discounting)?

    Thanks for any help.

    Hi Car_Man,

    If we consider the S400 it will have the following:
    Invoice: $89,970
    MSRP: $96,675

    Also, sorry I know this is off-topic, but Edmunds had done a review on the S400 breaks and said that Driver Assistance was required. With driver assistance, do the breaks seem safer?

    Just looking for the safest car possible.

    Thanks again!
  • If the dealer has to order the vehicle or locate the car in your area it will definitely damage your negotiating power. It really depends what area of the country you are looking in? I would check your pricing on this S550 the MSRP on a non P2 S class should be right around 96,000 USD.

    Hi Car_Man,
    What figures did you come up with on the S400 and S550?
