Hi jearx. Just a heads up, but I believe that the official Mercedes-Benz early lease termination program allows lessees out of their deals up to eight months early. If you want to get out of your deal twelve months early you might have to bury part of that cost in your next lease. Something to keep an eye on.
As far as this car's lease program goes, if you were to lease a 2012 C250 Sport Sedan through Mercedes-Benz Financial right now for 24 months with 12,000 miles per year, its buy rate lease money factor and residual value would be .00154 and 71%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.
The numbers for an otherwise identical 30-month lease are .00154 / 67%. the 36-month numbers are .00154 / 63%.

Thanks for the info.
I was told that the 36 month lease would be more expensive than the 24 month which is why I was leaning in that direction. Don't think I am doing maintenance with the 24 month. Chances are that I will only have one inspection before they'll be calling me to move into a new car and I only put about 8,000 miles a year on my car.
When I tried to balance up my numbers I finally did get to where the dealer was, but for a lease of 12,000 miles a year. Should it be lower with 10,000 miles which is what I asked for?
Also, does the $795 lease acquisition fee that you negotiated for include gap insurance as well?
Thanks, any input would be appreciated.

All deal very. This car is replacing my Totaled C32 AMG...also purchased from the same dealer 9+ yrs ago and since our R-class is also from them as well, they really work the deal to sale me the car. I was asking $0 drive off and $350/mo incl tax when I start on $41k car. At least they didn't boo me out the floor.
#1168 of 1650 Need some help on my deal
Nov 23, 2011 (6:41 am)
Sorry to bug you but I went to the dealer last night right before they closed and I didn't get much done but that might be good since I have more time to research this lease. I wanted to put the specifics I have all in one post to see what my best case scenario would be. I have tier 1 credit and about 1-2K cash out of pocket is about all the misses will allow.
MSRP of 2012 C250 (w/ S32, 333, 536, 731 options): $37,390
USAA price of $250 over invoice: $35,000
Price after USAA discount: $33,000 (I also qualify for 2K Conquest but was told I can't stack deals)
Payoff on my 2010 Dodge Ram: $32,700
Trade allowance on RAM: $20,000 (consistent w/ the other dealers I've checked)
They said that they ran the rough numbers and I will be at roughly $640/mo with the full 2K down on a 48 month lease and the only lease number they told me so far was a 63% residual. My goal was to do a 36 or less month lease at or below my current RAM payment of $620/mo so I can walk away from my negative in 3 years or less when my military enlistment is done. I realize I've dug a pretty deep hole on the RAM but I'm wondering if I can find a better way to do this than a 48 month lease and $20 payment bump with 2K out of pocket.

I am not 100% sure what you are trying to do but here is what I think I get so far. Can you please confirm?
Sale Price: $33,000 + $12,700 = $45,700???
Money Factor: ?
Lease Term: 48 offered, 36 months desired?
Down Payment: $0 or $2,000?
Upfront fees: ~$1700 what you will pay at inception?
Residual: 63% for 48 months?
