    Hi aquanaut. According to the latest information that I have seen, Mercedes-Benz Financial's May buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 33-month lease of a 2012 C300 4Matic with 15,000 miles per year are .00092 and 61%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    Thank you for the reply. Dealer is refusing to honor the buy rate money factor and the advertised acq. fee. Sure is frustrating to see how much money they try to bury in the F&I profits.

    hi ccc23,

    Did you qualify for any incentive like Employee program or Conquest discount?

    Looks like a very good deal.

    Doesn't look bad to me. It appears that they are selling you the car well under invoice. They have the extra F&I profit in the MF (it looks like it is .00173 instead of the buy rate of .00153 - probably costing you about $500 over the life of the lease) and they marked up the acq fee by $300 from $795 to $1,095. The dealer did the exact same thing to me on the acq fee and the MF, however your discount is lower so you are getting a better deal than I was able to negotiate this past week.
  • npshanpsha Posts: 3
    Thanks for the quick reply bigdomer94.

    I went in as a AAA/COSTCO member and asked what they can do over these discounts....I tried getting maintenance also included in the payment but they did not agree.

    Hopefully I will lease it this weekend.

    Thanks again.

    Config.

    2012 Mercedes Benz C300 4MATIC Sport Sedan
    Arctic White Metallic
    Almond Beige/ Mocha MB Tex
    Burl Walnut Wood Trim
    Premium 1 Package
    Multimedia Package
    Rear Trunk Spoiler
    MSRP 44895
    Dealer Invoice 40113

    33 Month Lease Details
    Cash Paid at signing
    $2,000 (includes 1st monthly payment) and every single other fee.
    32 Monthly Payments
    No Vehicle Return Fee

    What do you think I should aim for as far monthly payment, $400, would bring total payments to $14,800. $425 would bring total payments to $15,600

    What do you think is the lowest offer i can get?

    What should i try to get the guaranteed purchase at the end of lease? just deduct the total payments from the dealer invoice, and try to get that?

    C250 sport 44K MSRP, 12K miles for 33 months. It is $399 including the tax with 4K down. For maintenance plan they are asking extra $10 per month and I am debating on it.

    Any comments. So far with this forum help, this seems like okay deal.

    Easy transaction, good service. Thanks for the recommendation

    Hey mmenard. Mercedes-Benz Financial's June residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 C62 Coupe AMG with 15,000 miles per year is 57%. Mercedes is not currently providing any lease support on this car. As a result, if you were to lease one through MB Financial right now you would have to use its standard lease money factors.

    The residual value for a lease with only 12,000 miles per year would be 2% higher.
