Mercedes-Benz E-Class Lease Questions



  • I closed the deal!

    I think the "lease fee" may also be referred to as an acquisition fee. At this point I'm not sure if it is paid to the dealer or to MB Financial. I'm in San Diego looking for an E350 Luxury model.
  • I got my deal from Long Beach ask for Dez. He is the internet manager. Let him know Lisa sent you and you know the deal I got. Let me know how it goes. If not I have another guy in Thousand Oaks I am dealing with on a C and another E.
  • I do live in Ventura county with sales tax 7.25% which makes a little difference. Just a heads up.
  • How much was the car discounted off MSRP? I am also in LA area and interested in one of these. Thanks!

    Thanks...I'll give him a call, though I might need to put off my purchase for a while.

    Posted this before but I think I did it as a REPLY. Just checking in on what the MF and Residual Rates are for a 2013 E350 Cabriolet for 10k and 12k miles for THREE YEARS. Also what is the discount for the maximum amount of Security Deposits?

  • Markemarkee:

    Did you ever do you deal? I am looking hard at it now. However, I am dealing with a sales who really doesn't want to do deals similar to those on this board. I am not sure what board you wanted me to send you a PM at.
  • Congrats! Your deal sounds very good, can you share the exact details again, like package & what the cost was for you? Thanks.

    My location is east coast & I for sure would need 4matic.......
    Currently leasing a Eclass and want something more fun, but looks like I would have to revert back to Eclass.
  • Desire to lease 2013 MB E350C. First time to lease an automobile. I am in east Texas. Excellent credit. This is the deal they offered me: PO2 Premium Package - Wheel Locks - Rear Spoiler - 318 Wood Trim Package - 321 Appearance Package - 993 Lane Tracking Package - 36 months - 12,000 miles per year - MSRP less $1000 ($60,435 plus TTL) - $5000 down - $811.00 monthly payment. This is not a good deal at all. Invoice is $57199. How does the $4000 dealer cash work? Isn't the $5000 down pure profit? Please help? Also, how do the security deposits work?
  • KarKat,

    That is a BIG NO on the worst deal, checkout socalgirl deal on the previous messages, that is a good deal....

    Tell this dealer 'no way jose' & that he is insulting you for pricing it so horribly!

    this is really bad... i just leased a 2013 with P01 with MSRP of 60660 and with 1900 at inception (incl first month), i ended up with 589/month...
    yes i had a benz earlier so there was some incentive built in... but you should be able to get the same/similar deal. I am in the east coast.
  • That is a horrible deal. From prices I have seen here and from a quote I got on a E250 with P1. First rule- never ever do a cap cost reduction on a car (its a scam) Sometimes a lease like that is called a fleece.

    I think you ty some other dealers or a lease broker.
  • Dear Ratlow,
    I am also in the market to buy a 2013 you mind sharing what packages were included and what was the MSRP and finally what did you pay over the invoice of the car? :confuse:
    What incentives were available? I would really appreciate your input!
    How do you like the car?Thanks again!
  • Thank you Double006!!!
  • $44997.94 is the price the cap came to
  • MSRP was $57905, blk/blk, P1 Pkg, 18" AMG wheel and steering wheel pkg, keyless go, rear spoiler, comfort box, I think that is it! The cap was brought down to $47999.94.
  • Sorry it was $47999.94 not the previous one. Got my #'s confused, hahaha

    I was just offered the same car as you with a cost basis of 62K (gas or bluetec)for about $100.00 less a month from a south fla broker based on a single pay lease.

    Rob, many miles per year on the lease you negotiated?
  • rrw4rrw4 Posts: 3
    Are dealers charging Regional advertising fees on leases and how much is it?
  • Socalgirl,

    Quick question, I spoke to dealer today and she said impossible on the pricing you got....of course I am not surprised by her response.

    Although is a $61,700 MSRP invoice $58,000 after winter event she is giving it to me at $54,000

    monthly is $605

    what do you think the pricing should be?

    On a side note, I know it's a long shot, but would it be possible to share a copy of your contract WITHOUT your name and personal information, meaning you can block it out, this salesperson said ask your friend for a copy of the contract...

    I told her she is crazy for asking me to ask you, but I figured I would at least try....

    Either way, would love your feedback as this winter event will last only for 2-3 more days....

    Th@nks a million.

    How many miles per year on your lease? What will be your drive off payment?
  • Dear all,

    I am also in the market to buy a 2013 E350 Cabrio....with the premium 2, appearance package, spoiler, lane assist, parktronic, wood trim etc. The MSRP comes to $71,740.
    Invoice is $67,740. Offer is 65K and for a 36mo lease with 10K miles per year with zero down, 3 year maintenance inclded the monthly payment is $1060 with tile and taxes included per state requirement. I can putdown first months payment and an additional 2000$ and the mo payment will become 990$ :confuse:
    Any thoughts?

  • Can anyone recommend a good Mercedes dealer to work with in the Dallas Fort Worth area. I thought I had a lease deal worked out for a E350 at Invoice + plus $1,000 - $4,000 holiday credit. Actually, I can still get this deal, but they have now added a $795 acquisition fee (as they described it "a doing business fee" or as I describe it additional profit above the $1,000 offer). Additionally, instead of full tax credits, they still have me paying about $750 of taxes. I have always received full tax credits on a lease in Texas so this caught me a little surprised. Bottom line, these two charges add about $42/month to a 36 month lease.

    Also, does anyone know when the $4,000 Holiday credit ends?
