Just got c300 4matic sport, with premium 1, multimedia package, wood trim.
Price Paid: $39,800 (allegedly $1750 below invoice)
12,000 miles/year for 36 months
Money factor: .00042 (1.008% int.)
Residual: 57% (10k miles was 58%)
$1800 down (first payment, tax, tag transfer, $995ish Acquisition fee, $130ish doc fee)
$475 per month. ($487/month with MB maintenance residualized)
Am I right that this was a decent deal? Its a beautiful car, and our 2nd car's lease is almost up....I'm tempted to go deal on a second one.
Thanks for any feedback.
#1142 of 1295 Best deal for C300 year end model 2010

When is the best month/time for buying year end model 2010? Will Mercedes Benz have cash incentive for 2010 soon? I am looking for a deal with 20% off from MSRP.
Is it possible. Please advice

Sounds like you got a pretty good deal. If you work out the numbers it comes out to about $300 profit for the dealer.
I recently did a similar deal on a c300 4matic luxury with premium 1, grill conversion, and ipod adapter.
Due at signing: $1732
Monthly payment $450 ($461 with MB maintenance)
Hope you enjoy it. That is the most important part. I sure will!

All remaining 2010 C-Classes have special cash incentives as of August. You can see August specials here: August Mercedes-Benz Finance and Lease Specials
Now you can easily get 20% discount or more, depending on equipment. I can give dealership and managers name who is discounting more than 20% off MSRP in Southern California. If anyone is interested e-mail me at igb10yahoo.com.

Look like Mercedes Benz does not have cash incentive yet but I think they will later. They have lease special deals now but I am not interested in leasing a C300.
Thanks storm10, but I don't live n Southern California.

There is a difference between REBATE and CASH INCENTIVE. Reabates are offered to customers and widely advertised. Cash incentives are offered to dealers from manufacture and not advertised at all, but Dealership can easily discount their car in the amount of incentive without loosing any money. It's actually better than REBATEs because if you use rebate - you still have to pay sales tax on it. But cash incentives just apply to the discount of the car itself, so you don't pay sales tax on it.
You can easily get 20% or more discount if you lease or buy - does not matter. The only thing you have to pay is shipping charge from So Cal.

MSRP is $4,4605 in Seattle. They also quoted me with leasing at $545/month, $900 down, 36month, 10,000miles. What do you think? How much can I bargain?
