2007 could be 4 year model, you have to check the original date of sale. Also if you finance new 2010 C300 - you can get as low as 1.9% APR, but 2007 model should get aprox. 6-7% APR. So if you finance - you might spend overall more for what you get.
Original warranty is 4 years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. So you will have 0 or 1 year/8k miles left. However, if this car is MB Certified - then you'll have 1 or 2 years/68k miles left. + certified means the car is extra clean and has clean history.
You can research prices on Certified pre-owned Benz anywhere in USA here: Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned anywhere in USA - so you can have an idea of pricing. Just wait a few seconds until it loads in real time.

Where did you get this deal from? Dealer? If not - you should contact dealerships directly for a quotes. Contact more than 1, first by e-mail, so they will compete for your business. There are 26 MB dealerships in Florida, so its very competitive State.
To make your life simpler, ask for: how much is TOTAL drive - off (total amount out of pocket - all inclusive) and TOTAL monthly payment (including tax). This way you don't need to negotiate any fees, taxes and bank interest separately. Whoever gives you the lowest payments - wins!

I found the deal on Edmunds . I clicked all incentives and rebates . All car makes were listed and I clicked on the c-class lease deal, and there it was- Both dealers had to have me email the deal and they both said it is valid.'
So you think I should send the link to all 26 dealers and see who can do the best.
One dealer told me the offer did not include tax, tags and title, without a cost. The other hasn't gotten to cost yet.
I want someone to also include all maintainence and whatever else they can do to get the deal. It's better than the leases I saw on the same link yesterday, but since my offer runs till 3/31. I am ok.
Also, I want to register the car in MD and tax is prepaid to make it more confusing. Any advise helps. On this kind of offer, does it matter what the cost of the car is and the residual?

What I'm saying is: do not make offers to dealers, based on any information that you have seen anywhere. It's the same thing as playing poker with the open cards. Any info that you have - keep to yourself and don't reveal it.
Make dealers to open their cards first, by making an offer to you and not vice versa. Then you can judge their offer, by the information that you had before.
What if this dealer was ready to offer $50 less per month? But because you made first offer - they would quietly agree or even try to bump a little higher.
Good salesperson does not make offers. He always tries to extract the first offer from the customer using techniques like: " I don't know if I can do it, but if it was possible - can we make a deal right now?" Basically, he goes for your commitment to buy, instead of giving you a commitment to sell. That's how he makes money.
While you can't change Residual (unless you change mileage), you can and should negotiate the selling price. The lower the selling price - the lower monthly payment, because the Residual calculates from the MSRP (which does not change).

Just bought a 2010 C350 with multimedia package for 38100 (dealer included mudguards and all season floor mats). I'm in northern california and shopped online first, then gave the local dealer the best offer and they beat that by a couple hundred. Researched edmunds, truecar and KBB to get an idea for what others were paying. Seemed like a reasonable offer with 1.9% financing for 36 months. What do you all think?
