Sure. I pulled these for you from www.leasecompare.com. They are the April rates and I checked them when I got my car and they were accurate. It's in the forum entitled manufacturer lease rates, mercedes benz lease rates. There are also websites that have lease calculators so you can see if they are screwing around with you.

You should call this guy John Tutino at White Plains. He actually called me yesterday to ask how i liked the car but even though I picked it up 2 weeks ago then went right on vacation the next day so I have driven it only 2 days and have been too busy to call him back. I too tried the email thing but then called because I didn't want to wait and I got lucky and got him.
Note: Before you take that kind of ride, you should get your pricing in order. It's about 45 minutes from middle of Nassau where I am. We talked and agreed price and only then I went to meet him to see car and put deposit down. When I got there he didn't play any games -- nice and low key and no pressure, not some young guy who is all flash and he knows the cars.
#209 of 260 Extending leases with MB Financial
May 03, 2008 (7:46 am)
I have seen a few posts referencing extending leases with MB Financial and I just looked into it for my CLK and thought I'd share
I currently have an 06 CLK 350 with P1, nav, wood steering wheel, rear airbags, ipod, CD changer, heated seats and worked in first service for free - 12k miles per year 27 months, $2600 out of pocket (included all) for $565 per month. I was happy with this deal
I like the car very much, I just called MB to explore options of another MB or extending my lease. MB came back with a new lease payment of $521 per month at 12k per year for 1 more year. There are no additional fees - when the new term begins payment drops to $521.
I find this really attractive since to get into a new MB lease usually requires $1500 or more out of pocket plus I'd be looking at over $500/month (another CLK would be $550 plus), easy, for what I want. My CLK is still under warranty and I know it works. Needs tires but still ahead of the game I feel.
I have a little more time to decide, but, it is a nice option.
#210 of 260 Mercedes Benz CLK350 Convertible
May 05, 2008 (1:16 pm)
I am currently in the market for a new CLK350 convertible lease - with the following options:
Obsidian Black or Steel Grey exterior
Cappucino Brown/Black Leather- Sport interior
Black Ash wood trim
Black soft top
Heated front seats
iPod Integration (not essential)
P1: Premium 1 package
P90: Sport appearance package
Hands free communication system - Bluetooth interface module
MSRP = $60,000
What sort of deal should I expect on a 36 month, 12,000 mile lease?
Does anyone know what the money factor is on the convertible?

Hello Car Man,
What is MB offering for rates & residuals on this car 36, 48 or 60 month?

Hi Christian. Mercedes-Benz is not providing lease support on 2008 models any longer. If you want to lease an '08 CLK, you will have to do so through an independent bank...if you can even find one that is willing to lease you one.
In January, Mercedes was providing a whopping $15,000 dealer cash on this car. I'm not sure if dealers were paid out this amount for units that they had in inventory, but there is a good chance that they were.

Mar 22, 2009 (5:51 am)
can someone help me with this? yesterday, i went to Rallye to check out the clk convertible for leasing: Black/black, Package II, DVD Nagviation Sys and everything standard . leasing is 10,000.00 miles for 39 moths and 684.00/per month, down payment is 2000 (at the time pickup total payment is around 6000.00) with all the rebate/leasing special from Mercedes .

Fleet has been cracked down by MB Corporate from what I know. Alot of dealerships lost "leasing" companies b/c they were all using Fleet money. Fleet money is what a large company that leases multiple cars/year gets and it's a significant discount similar to employee discount. As I said, my sales person told me MB cracked down on it hard so I would beware of fleet deals b/c they are more than likely going to require you sign something making it look like you are on their payroll, etc. and basically, it's illegal if they do it that way. They are good deals if you can get them but DEFINITELY READ EVERYTHING before signing anything. I know our local dealership has periodically received support from MB in the form of a few employee deals they can use for anyone each month--see if any local dealerships near you have them or are willing to discount further. They are having a really bad month from what I hear.
On another note: what do you guys think of Indium Grey for a Cabriolet with a Black top? I love Black/Black but would like something different I think...any thoughts? Thanks
