Edmunds Moderator14Please let us know if the Standard Money Factor(.00225) would be applied for all below aspects

As well please let us know which one would be an ideal sweet spot.

7500K/36 months

10000K/30 months

10000K/36 months

12000K/30 months

15000K/30 months

15000K/36 months

Thanks for your help.

216,395For residuals, I need to know which model GL you are shopping for...

As a general rule

12K/yr residual = 15K/yr residual + 2%

10K is 1% more than 12K

7.5K is 1% more than 10K

Edmunds Moderator1New year, new questions about the GL450 lease. Thank you kyfdx for all the help you've provided so far.

I am looking at leasing a 2014 GL450. The MSRP was $73,500 and I negotiated down to $71,500. Need to know the money factor and residual I should using for calculations. Looking at 36 months, 12k per year. If 36 months is not the sweet spot, will you also give me the residual and money factor for a 39 month lease?

Thanks.

216,395December numbers have been extended to January 13th.

So.. standard money factor and 63% for 36mo, 12K/yr lease

Can you post what is MF? Standard = ??

Need to input the number for lease calculation.

Thanks

216,395They don't publish the "standard" money factor. I've seen it quoted from .00195 to .00225.

Edmunds Moderator2Hi kyfdx

Could you kindly provide current lease rates/residuals for 2014 GL350, 12k and 15k/yr, 36mos? Thanks!

216,395I'm sorry, but we don't have the January numbers for Mercedes.

Edmunds Moderator2FYI - based on my recent visit to a local dealer, the current "standard" MF is .00225 and the "super tier" (FICO >780 per the salesman) is .00195

No MF discounts on GL at this time, although there are on other cars like E and C class, again according to the local dealer.

216,395Thanks for the heads up on the money factors..

Edmunds Moderator138Honestly though, it doesn't only depend on credit score. Mercedes said it depends on the entire credit report, not just the score. On my application, both signer and co-signer had a score of 780+, but we still got approved for standard not super tier.

138My deal on 2014 GL450 I got on Friday:

MSRP: $79695

Fleet Incentive: $2000

Selling Price: $71083

MF: .00215 w/ AutoPay

RV: 64%

Term: 36 months

Miles: 10,000/yr

Total Out-of-Pocket (incl inception & first month):

$3500Monthly Payment:

$845/mo(7% tax incl)As you can see, the car was discounted $6400+, but in order to get this deal, I had to go to Ohio from NJ as no dealer here was willing to come close by $2500 at least! Secondly, the vehicle was sitting in dealer lot for some time which is why I believe they wanted to get rid of it ASAP.

Lastly, I did lose $320 in dual title and registration fees. If you really want a better deal than mine or similar, you really need to travel far from demand as these sell like hotcakes around NJ.

17im not sure what is the standard money factor.

218,635Had to look it up ... ranges from .00195 to .00225, but can (and often is) marked up by the dealer.

8What is the current Money factor and residual value for a 2014 GL450 and GL550 for a 36 month lease & 12K miles a year?

216,395Standard money factor for either. 62% and 57% residual, respectively

Edmunds Moderator15Hi, I am thinking a 36 month 12k/yr lease, and trying to figure out MF and residual with the advertised deal: $69900 MSRP, sale price $68314, $5000 down payment, with 0.00195 MF, I have to use residual of $47700 to get $729 monthly payment - this means 68% residual. Does this make sense to you? I would imagine 10k/yr will bring residual to 64%. Appreciate your comments.

216,395On a GL450, the residual is 63% for the 36mo, 10K/yr terms that the advertisement is for...

I can't get it to add up, either.... I get $744/mo., not $729. It's possible that the Super Tier standard MF has dropped below .00195. At a MF of .00180, it comes out, just about right.

Edmunds Moderator15Thanks for the reply! Could you kindly post the numbers you used to get $744/mo, like sale price etc? Also did you include $725 acquisition?

216,395I used your numbers... Selling price minus the $5000 upfront. .00195 MF and 63% residual. The advertised lease is for a $5000 cap cost reduction. You have to add the acquisition fee and the first payment to that.. $6523 due at signing on the advertised deal..

56kyfdx, thank you for all your help on this forum. Would you or anyone know the MF discount for doing a one-pay lease. A few years ago I did a one-pay lease and the MF discount was 0.0011 from the Standard MF. Thanks again!!!

216,395The last time I saw it mentioned it was .0010

Edmunds Lease Calculator

Edmunds Moderator56Thank you very much! And the MF for a GL450 is still 0.0019?

216,395It's the "standard" money factor, which can fluctuate.... .00195-.00225 has been the latest range..

Edmunds Moderator2I am in the process of leasing a GL 450. Got a good deal. But the MF that I was quoted was 0.00225. Seems a little too high to me. Credit score is not an issue. Was wondering if anyone has any input. Thanks.

218,635.00225 is the high end of the 'standard' MF MB uses. You might be able to negotiate that down to .00195, which is the 'low' end of the scale.

2Thanks much. Will try to bang it down. Also I have a question: they are installing the rear entertainment system and charging 999 for MB care. They want to include both in the lease. If my calculations are right with that MF, I will be paying 1800$ extra over the 36mnths if I include both in the lease and not pay it upfront.

Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks again.

216,395All that matters is if the MB care or the RES are residualized.. Whether you pay for them upfront or within the lease is a small difference compared to that.

Edmunds Moderator17Hello just wondering what is the money factor and residuals for a 36m 15k per gl450 with auto pay? Last month the money factor was .00185.

218,635Standard MF is in play this month (.00195-.00225) before autopay discount. Residual is 60% for 36/15.

17Does any one now what credit score typically qualifies for tier a1 credit? I was told around 700 for tier 1 and 750 for tier a1. Can anyone confirm this? Thanks much appreciated.

11i was quoted by an orange county dealer a money factor of 0.0021 this week...and they said that is their buy rate....how do I get the 0.00195? that is before the 0.0001 auto pay discount...tier one credit...thanks!

218,635The information we have doesnt have a breakdown of what scores qualify foe what tier. Sorry.

218,635Check with other MB dealers to see what they quote you for the MF..
