Hi guys! Try to look into getting a SLK. The sales said he can give me $8k discount on this vehicle. Anyone knows the residual and money factor for January? Please advise. Thank you!

  • Hello - Can someone please give current (March 2015) residual and MF for 2015 SLK250 10k miles for 24, 30, and 36 months? Are there any current incentives or rebates (I have a 2013 SLK250 maturing on lease) April 4. Also, what date are the current numbers good through? 3/31 or 4/2? Thank you!

    .00153 MF for all terms.

    71% / 70% / 64% residual.

    3/31/15 expiration date on the above numbers.

    There is a pull ahead program for your current lease.

  • What are the details of the current lease pull ahead for 2015 SLK250? My lease is extended 6 months and ending April 4, so I've already made my last payment. However, I know these programs can sometimes be a flat rate incentive put towards a new vehicle instead of actual monthly payment waivers? Hopefully that makes sense?

    I don't show that the SLK is eligible for a pull-ahead program.. If you have a current SLK lease that is ending, then that qualifies you for the first part, but leasing a new SLK is not one of the models that qualifies.

    But, that said... we have limited information on those incentives.

    Oh. Michaell mentioned the pull ahead above. I'm not familiar with those type of programs at all. I have an SLK250 lease now and looking to get into a new SLK250 lease.

    I'm sure I will get a good deal even without it though (knock on wood). So far, pricing/negotiating with a couple dealers has yielded me 12-15% off MSRP which certainly blows the $1500 under invoice deal through costcoauto out of the water!

    Did you end up buying it? If so, what was the MSRP and what was your purchase price?

    Is there any way to find out what the MF/residuals/incentives (10k for 24, 30, 36 mo.) are for April now? A dealer here has a car coming in, but it won't be here til 4/4, so it'll be under April programs.

    Wondering if I'll be able to get as good of a deal. Right now, I'm at ~12-12.5% off MSRP for my selling price.

  • Ok last question - is the .00153 MF for March a promotional MF or would I be able to put down 10 MSD to lower it to .00083? (I would also do autopay to lower to .00073) Thanks!

    That is a promotional MF. Standard MF from MB is around .00200, give or take.

    So is the only way I can reduce this MF by autopay? Is there any other way to reduce it? I'm assuming neither MSD nor OnePay can be used on this MF? I've been googling all of this, but not finding much. You guys are the best resource. :)

    I'm going to sign this weekend, but want to have financials figured out ahead of time. The second dealer that sent me an offer tonight added in a separate line item for tax ($4800+) and then added tax again in monthly payments ($1200+), so I don't feel comfortable asking them these questions. ;)

    Autopay can be applied to the discounted MF, but not MSD.

    Which state is this? Lease tax obligations vary.

    I know autopay can be applied, but what about OnePay? Just wondering if the lowest MF I can get this month is .00143 (.00153 - .0001 autopay). 

    This is in CA. (Los Angeles area)

    The dealer marked up the acquisition fee by $300-400+ after I called him out on the double tax so I told him I was going to go with another dealer.

  • Not sure anyone will know the answer to this, but figured I would ask. I am trying to order a 2015 SLK250 from a local dealer and they told me that the configurator is not working for the SLK only. All other models are working fine, but they're unable to put in any orders for SLKs (for the past 2 days). They said they need to contact Germany to find out why (possibly 2015 is finished production and they're getting ready for 2016, but it seems too early for that to me). My lease is up in 5 days and I'm trying to figure out if they're BSing me to not order a car for the price they offered me or if the system really isn't working. Help!

    I did that. One said the same (that they can't modify configurations), the other said they can modify an existing order. So stressful. In the meantime, MBFS is extending my lease one more month, if needed (unless we get a car ordered, then it's extended until the car comes in).

    Could you please let me know April residual and MF (all available terms at 10k/year) and April incentives/rebates once you have them? Thank you!!

    Hopefully we'll get the April numbers in the next few days; I wouldn't expect any major changes, but one never knows.

    I imagined the same, but the FEP discount went up $500 for April ($3,000 on 2015 SLK) which makes me think residual and/or MF may have gotten worse. Plus, want to see if incentives are better than FEP (doubtful).

    Dealer confirmed today that 2015 SLK production has ended and I can't factory order any longer (not sure when 2016 will start), so I will probably have to find something already built. Currently, I'm trying to find a way to search national (or even regional) inventory without having to search every single dealer individually (I wish I could see what was being delivered soon also) and also a good Mercedes VIN decoder that will show all options on a vehicle when dealer listing doesn't. Oh, how I wish I could access NetStar!

    We do now have numbers for April- .00153 MF and 70% for 30 months, 10K per year (64% for 36/10).

    I did use the incentives page, but it's not often accurate. It didn't have last month's $2,000 incentive, so I just wanted to check there wasn't something else available.
