#118 of 127 2006 SLK 280 Lease-End Buy-Out and Interest Rate
Apr 24, 2009 (8:43 am)
The lease on my SLK 280 is up on 8/8/09
As of today, I have not been given an buy-out price.
My residual is $30,000. This was a 33 month lease and bought in Detroit through a resident offer, which is why the residual is so high.
Does anyone have current Manheim Auction Prices and/or know what Mercedes is quoting for a lease-end purchase?
Does anyone know what interest rate Mercedes Benz Financial is offering to buy at lease-end?
I know I can buy another one, but the car is perfect, and I would like to keep it!
Thanks in advance!
I am assuming they will want me to keep it as they are retailing these cars in Florida for around $19,999, and there are a lot of them!

I just got my SLK300 with sport (and AMG wheels) and multimedia package with MSRP of $58885. I put $3000 out the door and $620/per month (pre-tax, 35 months). But then I wanted to pay for Pre-Maintenance & Wheel protection package so I ended up paying $730 (including tax for 35 months) and the $3000 down. Is this a ok deal? Please let me know. Thanks!!
#120 of 127 2012 SLK-Class redesign
Jan 19, 2011 (9:26 pm)
Dealers are marking down the current 2011 SLKs, because 2012 new body SLK is just around the corner. Also MBF offers additional incentives to get rid off 2011 models. In January, the only improvements in leasing/financing belongs to SLK.
By the way, 2012 SLK is a real piece of art! You can read all the details, specifications and what's new here: 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class model changes.. Actually, it makes sense to wait until new model. It will be released in about 5 months...

#122 of 127 Prices For new 2012 350
Feb 01, 2012 (10:10 pm)
I see discussion of the end of year 2011 SLK but none of the new designed 2012. What are people being offered? Can I expect the same 10-15% off MSRP & options that O got on my Subaru Forester?

A year ago MB was offering discounts and incentives to sell off the 2011 SLK because the 2012 was a redesign. I don't see any incentives or a reduction more than 8% on the 2012.
Do they typically only do this on redesigned models? I know the 2013 won't be changed but when will that model year be offered?
#124 of 127 Discounts on top of European Delivery 7%
Oct 10, 2012 (7:53 am)
Has anyone tried to get additional discounts on top of the MB offered 7% ED option? I'm looking at a new SLK 350 in July of 2013 and would like to get 7-8% from the dealer plus the 7% ED bump.
I live in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area with several dealerships in the area...are any giving better discounts? Thanks.
#125 of 127 '09 SLK 300 High Beams in AUTO Mode
Nov 28, 2012 (9:29 am)
I am looking at a 2009 SLK 300, while test driving I noticed that the High Beams would not stay on in the AUTO mode but would stay on in the Manual mode. The dealer is telling me that this is how the light is designed but I cannot find anything that confirms. My mechanic has told me that he has never ran into this issue. Can anyone confirm? My 2006 SLK 280 does not share this design feature as the high beams work in the AUTO mode

Looking to purchase a new slk350 in Boston area. stealer here is quoting me 6% off msrp on an ordered vehicle. He tells me there is no rebate or cash back! I am used to buying american made vehicles at 500 less than invoice, so I am a bit shocked.. It's also so hard to find mercedes invoice pricing online.. Does anyone have any recent experience in buying an slk model? The vehicle I would like to order has an msrp of about $67,500.00
