Thanks mcpa . According to the latest information that I have seen, Mercedes-Benz Financial's February buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 C63 Sedan with 15,000 miles per year are .00205 and 57% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.
I honestly am not that familiar with C63 pricing. I know that dealers have plenty of C's in general, but I'm not sure about the supply of the 63.
The program that's available on this car is not that great right now, so it wouldn't hurt to wait.

#1560 of 1650 2013 MB C300 Sport 4M Incredible Lease Rate!!
Feb 13, 2013 (10:55 pm)
I just picked up my 2013 C300 4M Sport and got a pretty good deal, at least in my opinion it was.
The MSRP was $45,770 (Sport, P1, Multimedia, and Trunk Lid Spoiler). I live in MD so we have to pay tax on the whole vehicle even it is a lease (which is absurd!) so my leases are always more expensive.
With that said, I was able to get a 27 month lease, 15k miles/yr, $399/mo, $1800 out of pocket (including all MD taxes, tags, and fees).
Not only that, I was returning a 2010 C300 and the dealer waived the $595 Lease-End fee, 2 payments, didnt charge me for a cracked windshield, and also didnt charge me for a blown tire (the tire popped on the way there so I turned it in with the compact spare tire on).
This deal was much cheaper than what I was paying for my 2010 and that one had no options in it.
I was expecting to pay a lott more!

So I was looking to see how much I would possibly be paying for a MB C300 and I was pretty impressed with the Lease rate they gave you. I am going in a couple of weeks and expected to pay a bit more than that.
I was hoping you might be able to tell me how much was the sales tax alone for that vehicle you leased? I understand your in Maryland. I'm located in New York. Any feedback is highly appreciated. Thanks!

$4100.00 out of pocket for 27 months you can lease a 2013 C300 4 matic for $389.00 per month plus tax that is based on $42,355.00 MSRP
This is the deal I got from the dealer. Could you check if this is a good deal or not?
Thank you very much for your help.
#1563 of 1650 2011 C300 4Matic Sport Lease End question
Feb 19, 2013 (6:00 pm)
Not sure if this is the right place to post this question.
My 2011 C300 4Matic Sport Lease ends on April 1st. It has only 21000 miles on it. Allowed mileage was 33750. I am wondering if low miles could be used as a leverage to negotiate lease end fees with a dealer. In other words, shop around for dealer who would cover for the fees - $600.
Any other advise to avoid paying that fees is welcome as well. I am switching to BMW so buying or leasing another MB is not an option.
Thank you in advance for your help.

Would buying it out at a lower price and then trading in for a BMW NOT make sense?
I have done it instead of turning the car in, and it saved me tons of money. I was, however, staying with the same make.
Hope it helps.

You are in a great position. Post some details on your car over at the REAL WORLD TRADE IN VALUES thread here on Town Hall. Your low mileage Mercedes might be worth more than the lease end residual. If it is, negotiate your lease on the BMW, then trade in the MB like you own it. The dealer will send a check to MBFS, and you'll hopefully have some left over to make some lease payments on your BMW.
Just curious, how come you are switching back? I have a 2011 E90 328xi & LOVE IT!

Will do. Thank you!
BMW is already ordered so this would be a separate transaction. I figured it would be easier to negotiate by keeping them separate. I shopped for GLK before deciding on X3. MB is keeping their GLK inventory very low so choices arnt that great. Custom order wasn't an option as MBFS doesn't lock lease rates and incentives so you can't negotiate with dealers. BMW on the other hand locks down lease rates and dealers would pass on if they get better.
This is for my wife. I am bimmer guy myself. I drive 535. I loved my 335 vert that was before this car.
#1567 of 1650 2013 MB C250 Coupe
Feb 27, 2013 (6:34 am)
I am looking at a 2013 C250 Coupe. Does anyone know the Tier 3 and Tier 4 money factors? Is 10% off of MSRP a reasonable offer on this car or should I be asking for more?
#1568 of 1650 C250 Lease...How Did I do..
Mar 01, 2013 (7:29 am)
MB C250 Coupe (P1+ Multimedia+ AMG 18 inch + rear and roof spoiler+ Wheel locking unit)
24 month/ 15000 miles per year/ 2 year/20000 miles maintenance included
1800 down (including first month+acquisition+ doc+registration +title)
0.20 cents miles refund (I don't know if they are going to do that but the lease says)
I could have done better deal but was in a rush.
