    Morning!

    I am looking for the current May 2013 residual and money factor for the C250 Coupe - MB Financial *Tier 3*. 10k / 36 Month
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    Hi lloydk2000. The money factor that you were quoted looks great. The selling price looks like it's pretty close to dealer invoice as well. Having said that, Mercedes has some $2,000 dealer cash certificates out there on the 2013 C right now. If you could convince the dealer to use one on this deal you may be able to get a lower selling price than this.

    I certainly can jslachta. Mercedes-Benz Financial's buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 C350 Coupe with 12,000 miles per year are .00205 and 64% for consumers who qualify for its tier one credit tier.

    The residual value for a lease with 10,000 miles per year would be 1% higher.

    Mercedes has $2,000 dealer cash certificates out there on the 2013 C. Try to get the dealer to use one on your deal.

    Good evening jdowntown. Mercedes-Benz Financial's May buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 C250 Coupe with 10,000 miles per year are .00129 and 66% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    I'm not sure what the Tier 3 factor is. It definitely would be higher than this.

  • Hi car man,

    Hope you are enjoying your weekend. I see that you've posted recently that there are customer one certificates on the C-class for 2,000.

    Does this include the c300? I was under the impression that the c300 was 1,000 and the 250/350 were higher than that.

    Then again, this came from the dealer some 3 weeks ago. It probably has changed since then to benefit more c300 sales.

    Thank you for your help!

    Hi car man,
    I am interested in leasing the GLK250 for 36 months @10,000 miles per year. Can you tell me what the Tier 1 money factor and RV rate would be?
  • jslachtajslachta Posts: 8
    thank you so much for the quick reply! As it turns out, it seems no one in my area has access to any C350 coupes and my only option would be to go with the 2014.

    Do you have any guidance on MF and RV for a 2014 C350 coupe, 36 months?
  • jbeinhorjbeinhor Posts: 6
    Hi CarMan-

    I was wondering if these rates have changed for June? I am hopefully going to pick up a car this month!

    Thanks,

    JB

    I am also looking to lease this month. If you get a chance, car_man, can you post the June MF and Residuals for the C250 and C300, 27 month leases for 12k miles. And if you happen to know what rebates or customer/dealer cash available, that would be awesome!

    Hi porsche911c4s. Yes, the certificate allowance is $2,000 on all C-Class Sedans right now. At one point the program was different.

    You're welcome jslachta. Mercedes has not published a lease program for the 2014 C-Class yet.

    Hi kapkanimd. Mercedes-Benz Financial's June buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 24-month lease of a 2013 C250 Sedan with 12,000 miles per year are .00124 and 69% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of a 2013 C300 Sedan are .00113 and 70%.

    I haven't seen the 27-month residual values, but they are probably 2% to 3% lower than the 24-month resids.

    Mercedes-Benz has $2,000 dealer cash certificates out there on '13 C Sedans right now. The trick is to make sure the dealer uses one on your deal and actually lowers your vehicle's price by that amount.

    Hi jlhouston. Mercedes-Benz Financial's June buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 C250 Sport Sedan with 15,000 miles per year are .00124 and 57% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    If you provide me with the MSRP and dealer invoice price of the car that you want, as you want it equipped, I would be happy to work up a sample lease payment on it for you. You can find that pricing data in the New Vehicle Pricing section of this site.

  • Hi Car_Man,

    Do you have the June buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 C250 Sport Sedan with 10,000 miles per year?

    Can you work up a good price for what I'm looking at? The MSRP is $42,375 for the options I am looking at. I have Tire 1 credit and am considering leasing in MD or VA.

    Thanks so much for all of your help!

    Can you tell us your selling price and any rebates you might have received? That seems like a really good deal, like over $6k in discounts
  • valleyguy408valleyguy408 Posts: 70

    The selling price was $6100 off MSRP for this deal. I'm not aware if any certificates or rebates were used by te dealer. I did not bring any forward.

    On another deal, my brother just bought a $40,900 MSRP C250 from a local dealer here at the end of April for $35000 even plus sales tax.

    I had 2 dealers here confirm that there are incentives on C-class and that allotments of newly arriving CLA's are dependant on selling C-classes.

    It appears that MB is putting pressure on dealers to thin the inventory and also helping them with lease support and discounts.

    Hi
    I am considering to lease c250 sport sedan with 7500 miles /year for 27 months. What is the residual value of this car and the money factor? Tier 2 credit , negotiated price of $38,000
  • Unless you are getting a minimum of $6k off msrp this month - keep shopping.

    These. cars are very fun to drive. 10k miles is only 1% residual impact. Maybe 120-130 dollars a year more. Also get the services/maintenance agreement for $619 bucks, since it is residualized it will only cost your $192 over the cost of the 2 year lease.

    Good luck on your purchase.
  • iivanovaiivanova Posts: 2
    Thank you , valleyguy

    They are giving me $4200 discount on MSRP
    Since I am new to this, can you please elaborate on " 10000 miles has 1% residual impact"?
    I am trying to calculate the lease amount myself and figure out the difference from their quote.
  • Crunching the numbers from every angle, a person should only do deals like:
    27 months
    10K or 20k annual mi
    MF about .00124
    Residual 69-70%
    Service contract at $619 residualized adds $11-15 per month

    Demand 6k off msrp. It's easy to get 15% off msrp right now.

    1% residual impacts payments about $12-15 per month.

    I have start looking for a C300 and need help in finding out the best price ti offer to the dealer.
    The MSRP is 45K ( They didn't disclose the invoice) Where should I start and how much max should I go? Appreciate your help.
  • $6500 at a minimum off of msrp. You want to get to about 15% or a little more off MSRP.

    Less than this, just walk they will call you back.
