    Lease a 2012 E350 4Matic over the weekend at a large mercedes dealer in Westmont Illinois.

    MSRP 58800
    Discount 9300
    24 months/24k miles
    1000 dollars total out of pocket
    550 per month

    I don't think it was that great of a deal but I did it anyway. I leased it as a gift for my father and did not have too much time to shop around.

  • Hello car_man, what are the residual and MF for Oct for 2013 E350 sedan? I am looking at both 12K and 15K per year mileage options.

    Also I noticed that some folks on this thread are posting 24 month this still correct or for Oct has this moved to 30 month leases now?

    Thanks so much
  • Hi insidecarbuy,
    Can you provide the money factor of your deal?
    How do you negotiate with dealer with huge MSRP off?
    Thank you very much!
  • Did you get this deal ? Who was the salesman?
  • I like the idea of this website, but could some of you who post the deals you received post the dealership and salesperson you did the deal with. Maybe some of the posters would like to lease a car and receive the same deal at the dealership you used.

    Thanks in advance.
  • Hello,

    I am looking to lease a 2013 E350 Sedan with the sport package. Can you please let me know what the 24, 30 and 36 month residuals and money factors are for 12k miles per year? Also, is there any conquest cash being offered on the vehicle? Can conquest cash be used in conjunction with the USAA discount of $2500?

    Thank you in advance for your help. Looking to lease before the end of the month.
  • Hi Markemarkee. Mercedes-Benz Financial's October buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 24-month lease of a 2013 E350 Sedan with 15,000 miles per year are .00121 and 69%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    You can lease this car for 24, 30 or 36 months. The money factors for all three terms would be the same. The residual values would be different though.

  • Hey z4maudioman. Mercedes-Benz Financial's October buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 24-month lease of a 2013 E350 Sedan with 12,000 miles per year are .00121 and 71%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 30-month lease are .00121 / 65%. The 36-month numbers are .00121 / 60%.

    I don't know the specific program rules, but I suspect that there is a good chance that the $2,000 conquest cash that is currently available on this model cannot be combined with the USAA offer.

  • Thanks Carman.

    Do you have the same info for 2012 models? 24, 30, 36 month lease rates and residuals for 10K miles? Wondering if I can score a better deal there.
  • Sure z4maudioman. Mercedes-Benz Financial's October buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 24-month lease of a 2012 E350 Sedan with 12,000 miles per year are .00127 and 69%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 30-month lease are .00127 / 61%. The 36-month numbers are .00127 / 52%.

  • Thanks!

    Would 4matic rates be identical? Also, is there still a $4000 dealer incentive on these cars? I know there was something like that back in May. I found a 2012 I want to make a move on, but it's 4matic, so I want to have all my ducks in a row before heading to the dealership. I want to do the following:

    2012 E350 Sedan Sport 4matic
    24 months/10K year

    I qualify for the loyalty discount, which puts me at $2K below invoice currently. I want to know how much additional I can get below that. I'm hoping MB is offering dealer incentives of about $4K-$5K on this car. Please confirm if possible. Thank you so much for your help with this. This info should facilitate a purchase this weekend. :)

    36 mos.
    15k mi./year
    $690 (inc. tax)
    maintenance included
    $2K down

    Money factor 0.001210
    Residual $35,626
  • ghstudioghstudio Posts: 970
    Can't comment on the discount, but you shouldn't put any money down on a lease....just pay the first month's payment plus any other required by law fees (e.g. registration).

    My only other comment is that the headlights in the P2 package are worth the upgrade price...but of course that's personal/financial decision.
  • Hello Car_man, thanks for the info. For 24 months, since the Oct buy rate for 2013 E350 is .00121 and 69% residual for 15K miles, what is the residual % for the other 2 options- The 30 month and 36 month terms?

  • dinomandinoman Posts: 56
    you should be able to get another 2000 off msrp. Call around or email other dealers before you sign the deal.
  • snow26snow26 Posts: 24

    Can you tell me the 36 or 39 month residual and money factor on an E350 wagan with 15,000 miles per year? Are there any incentives on this car? conquest cash? Much thanks.
  • Car Man
    I am in the Dallas TX area and about to pull the trigger on a 2013 Mercedes E350 Sedan.
    I feel as though there is another $2000.00 or so the dealership can take off from the sticker.
    I am being told this is their bottom line, they won't go any lower. Can you take a look at my deal and tell me your thoughts? BTW, thank you for all your help in these forums. You are the man!

    MSRP is $56,555
    Sale Price is $52,240
    I am getting a $1500 conquest discount because I have an Infiniti. This $1500 is included in their discount.
    So the dealership is really only discounting the car by $2815.00

    24 month lease
    Payment is $586.66 per month
    10k per year ( I wanted 12k, they are saying we are way off with cost)
    Total Uprfront Down is $2632.00

    Texas makes you pay the sales tax of 6.25% on the price of car, not payment.
    They have Tax Credits right now covering 4.75% of the tax.

    Total down cash including the 1.5% sales tax remainder and aquistion fees and doc fees is:

    Residual is 72%
    Money Factor is .00120

    Is this a good deal? Is the money factor right?
    I am seeing others online getting $8-$9k off MSRP. The dealerships here in Dallas are saying this is just not possible. I feel as though there is more room to haggle....

    Thank you!
  • hey killerrides,

    I too am in the Frisco area of DFW and about to execute on a deal very soon. Are you at liberty to tell us what dealer / sales person and more about the tax credit that is making your tax rate only 1.5% instead of the 6.25% in TX?

  • There are just 3 here in DFW. All of them are willing to do the tax credits if you ask. I am going to do the deal in Plano. What kind of deal do you have?
  • hey killerrides,

    I would like to connect with you offline to discuss. I am on with the same handle. Want to PM me on there?

  • Killerrides and markemarkee:

    I live in the Allen area. I am also looking at a lease for the E350. My last two leases have been a BMW 5 series, but I am looking for a change. I have leased 5 different cars now and have always received full tax credits, is this something MB dealers just won't do? I also was thinking the dealer had at least $2,000 more to work with. I don't believe in putting money down on a lease other than the first month payment. Could you share your dealer or your final deal. Thanks.
  • Hey Freeze14, thanks for the note....I am in the Allen area too.

    I am in my busy season, but close to pulling the trigger...just waiting for month end(s) when negotiation is most favorable. I cannot speak for MB tax credits, but i have done them too on other leases for other manufacturers. (this might be a Texas thing only, maybe other posters here can clarify?)

    If you want to ping me, please do so via PM on mbworld, we can collaborate offline...on things like price, etc.

    Since I have learned so much from this forum, i want to pay it forward by sharing my experience from my deal when it is compete.

  • I am reading all these discussions, somehow not getting if there is a way to get a better deal near fremont, ca for E350 then what is there on deal websites. I see on their website 579 a month for 30 months with 4549 upfront plus tax and fee due at signing.
    can you help me get a ballpark idea as to what will be good lease amount, plus initial deposit. I talked to a dealer, he keeps saying this is all they can do. I think residual value is about 35K.
    Is it possible to get a 36 months lease.
  • sergeymsergeym Posts: 267
    Your friendly MB dealer should be able to do better, around $2K better, I would say.
  • Hello Car_Man,

    I am looking at both Jaguar XF's and E350's. For the E350, would you please provide me with the following rates for November?

    2012 E350 Sedan (not AWD) - 24, 30 and 36 month leases at 10K miles/year
    2013 E350 Sedan (not AWD) - 24, 30 and 36 month leases at 10K miles/year

    Also, would you be able to share any rebates/incentives being offered for both model years? Conquest cash, dealer cash, etc?

    I am hoping that Mercedes is getting aggressive with lease rate for the holiday season since I've heard BMW will be.

    Thanks in advance for your help.
