    Why you did not do the advertized special of 649.00 per month with 5 K down?

    I am in the process of negotiating. I would like to get more options than P1 for the same montly payment. I feel that they will can accomodate more options. There are many new GL 450 on their lot. I can imagine that they would want to move inventory and hence provide a better deal. Any ideas?
  • wtikwtik Posts: 26
    What kind of option did you get on your GL450. Do you feel that there is one that you should've had?
    I am interested in:
    P1 Package
    Lighting Package
    Running Brds
    Blind Spot Assist

    Any suggestions?

    A MB dealer in NY is advertising $549 lease speacial for 27 months.
    is this good to be true, what is the catch, if any? all other dealers have the $649 lease for 27 months.
  • Carman,

    Can you provided updated August residual and money factor for 2011 MB GL 450. Not sure if they are still offering 27 mo lease. If so please provide for those terms and/or 36mo. 12K miles.

    Hi all / Car_Man

    Leasing 73K MSRP GL450 this month with 12K miles and 27 months total.

    Here's what I have been offered:
    Base payment is 700 (750 incl tax).
    First month payment ==> Cap reduction 5800 + 750 monthly + 300 license fee = 6850.

    National Ad has a 649 monthly payment and 6443 first payment.

    Please advise if this is a decent deal. I am looking to get this by end of Aug.

    Thanks in advance!

    Here's the information that you're looking for, albertob. Mercedes-Benz Finance's August buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 GL450 with 12,000 miles per year are .00126 and 55%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tiers.

    I'm not sure if MB is still running 27-month leases on this model, but if it is the numbers for that term are likely .00126 and 67%.

    How do we use those numbers to get reasonable monthly and down payment numbers?

    Hi agamny,
    Here is an offer we received.
    GL450 MSRP $73,240 Lease for 27 months with 10,000 miles per year for $810 including sales tax & maintenance,
    $2,200 due at signing.
    I would suggest to reduce the total amount at sign-in.
    Hope this helps.
  • You can get a better deal. For the same vehicle I paid 805/month with $2k out of pocket - 27 month lease w/12k miles/year.

    Good luck.

    Hey agamny. Negotiate as low a selling price as possible on the vehicle that you are interested in and then have the dealer calculate your monthly payment using the numbers that I provided.

    Here is a deal I was offered today. MB of Devon, PA. GL 450 Silver with black MB Tex. Options: P1, RSE, Blind-spot, Parktronic, Appearance Package, Lighting Package, trailer hitch, heated steering wheel. Sticker with destination is just shy of $75,000. I used USAA discount on top of my negotiated deal with the dealer. I am down to $63,000.00 as selling price. They also gave me $1,000 more for my trader then three other MB dealers were offering.

    Payment with Tax is $775.00, 27 months, .00126, 65%, 15,000 miles, approx $2500.00 out of pocket includes first months and all fees.

    I think I got a pretty good deal, anyone else have think so?
  • What is the sale price you got for the 72K MSRP GL450? I tried to caculate the sale price from your monthly payment with 0.00126 money factor and 67% residual value. The sale price is about $56000, almost $16000 down from MSRP. Did I miss something?
