I have a 2012 E350 loaded…
I just drove the 2013 Lexus GS350 and loved it so much that I traded my 2012 E350 for a loaded one. Heads up display, Mark Levinson 850 watt 17 speaker audio system, intuitive park assist, NAV with web connectivity, Blind Spot Monitor, Luxury Package, etc, MSRP $59,000, and in gray with "Flaxen" (dark saddle) full leather on seats, doors, lower dash etc, and it drives better than my Mercedes drove. Take a test drive and let me know what you think. So much more for less $ and an interior that is to die for!

What were the RV and MF that you were quoted for your 33mo/12K lease? These are crucial variables for us to assess your deal.
In the interim, a few ideas for consideration follow below.
1. Pay $0 down (or as close to it) as you should only pay 1st month's payment and DMV fees.
2. Consider the max 10 MSDs as this will significantly reduce the MF and subsequent interest portion of monthly payments - in some cases ~$40-$65/mo. And you get the MSD back at the end of the lease term.
3. Some on the forum have suggested including maintenance in your lease.

Do you know if you get the Security deposit back if the car it totaled in an accident?
I will find out about the RV & MF

Spoke with the dealer.
residual: 62% $39,456.80
money factor: .00126
Dealer said they cant combine 10 security deposits with the program they are giving me.

and your dealer is correct....because the .00126 is a special money factor. The 10 MSD reduction of .0007 can only be taken off the base mf which is somewhere around .0025 (not sure of this months rate).
MSD's really help on the BlueTec which doesn't have the special money factor, but has fantastic residuals (~75%) on a 24 mo lease.
