  • Sorry I meant $4300 toward cap reduction.

    Thanks!

    2011 C300 Sport with Nav and Sat Radio
    Cap Cost is 43,000
    Residual is 70%
    Term is 27mo w/ 12k miles per year.
    Zero Down

    They are asking 684/mo

    What incentives do they currently have to bring down the cap cost?

    We currently lease a 2009 C300 equipped the same with a cap cost of 45,795 w/ 15k per year over 39 mo. MB provided a 7909 Cap Reduction. Payments 578 per mo.

    There is a big difference here.... I am confused.

    Car_Man,

    Can you provide the November MF and residual for the '11 C300 Sport 4Matic with 12K miles for 27 and 36 months? Thanks.
  • I;d be happy to help you out, epl1.

    Mercedes-Benz Financial's November buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 27 month lease of a 2011 C300 Sport 4Matic with 12,000 miles per year are .00114 and 60%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 36 month lease are .00114 and 59%.

    Hey car_man, got a question.

    An editorial in Automotive News mentioned M-B was offering a $300/month lease on the C-class. They didn't specify which year or the terms, though.

    Base models start at $33.9k or so, is that figure possible with current incentives?

    I'm assuming a 39-month lease on a base model, 10k miles/year, would be most likely to reach that number, is that payment realistic or would it have to be with a huge down payment?

    I almost leased a 2011 C300 Sport with Premium 1, Burl walnut wood, ipod adapter and heated seats. Somehow their monthly payment came out a bit different than I calculated using my iphone lease calc program(as well as online lease calculators).

    Here are the numbers:
    MSRP 39805
    Selling price 37916(USAA price for invoice+500)
    Cap cost reduction in the form of USAA$1500 incentive
    MF 0.00116(had to fight for this)
    residual for 27month lease 68%(using 24mo numbers)
    all taxes and fees upfront

    They quoted my 460-something a month. I'm calculating 420/month. I thought they mistakenly gave me the 24month lease numbers instead, which is 463, but they insist that they are not.

    What am I missing here?
  • When you say "all taxes and fees upfront", are you including the $795 acquisition fee? They usually roll that into the lease, which would increase the payments by $30 or so per month.
  • hull22hull22 Posts: 31
    I don't remember if they factored that in. That would only increase the monthly to $450, but the quote is still int he 460s. I guess I'll have to pin them down on the cap cost and residual tomorrow
  • Did you factor in the Doc fees, Bank fee, lic fees, etc...? That could be where the difference lies.
  • hull22hull22 Posts: 31
    so it turns out, they factored in the lease acquisition fee, upcharged to $1095. Wouldn't budge on that, so I have asked them to throw in floor mats. Waiting to hear back.

    so I finally made the deal for the 2011 C300 Sport with a different dealer who did not markup the lease acq fee. The MSRP was $39,055. They said the USAA price(invoice+$500) is $37382, which is actually $1K over invoice. When I questioned it, they said that the invoice includes a "required" $500 advertising fee. Is this really true or am I being taken?

    Anyways, after the $1500 USAA cash back incentive to bring down the cap cost. The 27mo lease with 0.00116 MF and 68% residual came to about $417/month with taxes+fees upfront. Waiting for the car to be transported from port.
  • Is this really true or am I being taken?

    It probably is on the invoice, so no, you are not being taken.
  • Hey ateixeira. Mercedes' current advertised lease on the 2011 C300 Sedan Sport isn't quite $300 per month. It's actually $339 per month for 27 months with $2,245 down. One might be able to do better than that by negotiating a lower selling price, but still not all the way down to $300.

  • Does adding 4Matic change the residual or MF? Also does anybody know the residual & MF for a 7,500 mile/yr lease for both 27 months & 48 months?

    Hi all,

    Is the money factor for the C300 and the C350 the same? If not , what are the C350 programs looking like?
    Thanks
  • Hi tax_atty. The lease programs for the 4Matic is slightly different than it is for the RWD model.

    Mercedes-Benz Financial's November buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 27 month lease of a 2011 C300 4Matic with 7,500 miles per year are .00114 and 72%, respectively.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 48 month lease are .00114 and 56%.

  • Hi orizaba. The lease programs for the C300 and the C350 are similar, but not exactly the same.

    Mercedes-Benz Financial's November buy rate lease money factor and residual for a 36 month lease of a 2011 C350 with 15,000 miles per year are .00200 and 56%, respectively.
