#1864 of 1998 2014 C350 lease
Sep 06, 2013 (5:35 pm)
Just announced 5 month pull in of current Mercedes lessees. Considering C350 $800 out of pocket $580 a month for 36 months (10k miles). Only concern I have is our current lease only has 17k miles and after researching current used car prices I feel we have 4k in equity. Anyone have any thoughts? MA tax rate is 6.25%. Thinking $525, no money out of pocket. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!

You won't be able to use a pull-ahead program and take equity out of your vehicle...
You can see if the dealer will take your current car in trade, outside of the pull ahead program, and credit any equity towards the new lease. Though, I'm guessing you'll find the dealer feels you have a lot less equity than you do..

Prior to our 2011 lease the dealer gave us $2k to get us out of our 2008 Volvo XC90 three months early. We also have an offer on the table for $508 and $800 out of pocket.
The buyout for us in February 2014 is $27,500. Right now I'm seeing used value car trade in for $32,255. Then if you were to buy it out the projection is $34,300. So if I was to do this I would be looking for the dealer to knock the payment down to $450 with no money out of pocket.
They bought out the Volvo so I was planning they would do the same. We just had the car serviced a month ago and I feel that got our sales rep to contact us once this program was announced.

What are the money factor and residual?

The residual for 36 mo, 7.5K mi/yr is 58%.. Standard MBCC money factor.
Residuals do not apply to the "Black Series"

It's their "standard" money factor.... I'm not sure what that is. I've seen everything from .00195 to .00235 to .00325

About to close a deal on a 2013 c350 coupe lease and was wondering if I am getting a decent deal. I am not sure about all the language people use in prior comments, but the details are as follows:
2k down including fees
$635 a month
I know i'm not getting the best deal, but it seems the most dealership has very little inventory on this car. Any insight would be appreciated!!
#1872 of 1998 2013 C300 Lease
Sep 16, 2013 (6:15 pm)
I am in the market for a 2013/2014 C300 lease. I got the following initial offer and after having looked at what valleyguy, reloman etc have stated this is not in the vicinity of a good deal. Just want to affirm and look at the next steps.
Sport with Premium, Multimedia, Becker, Keyless Go, Lane track, Roof spoiler, Maintenance plan
Term : 10K/27 Months
MSRP : 49170
Selling Price : 44048
Fleet Incentive : 2500
Cap Reduction : 1000 (Dealer has added this in his quote ; I will not do cap reduction)
Fees : 284
Sales Tax (7%) : 964
Net Cap Cost : 41796
MF : 0.00213 (seems high)
Residual : 71% - 34910
Tax - Capped
Depreciation - 6886/27 = 255
Finance Charge 4411/27 = 163
Drive Out : 1St Month + Cap Reduction = 1000+ 418 = 1418/-
Total Cost Of Lease : 12,297
The above is my calculation (Leasematic) per the details given by the dealer. The dealer sans maintenance has sent me a quote for 447/month with 1500 out of pocket. 461/month with maintenance.
If I can get the dealer to 418/month, is it a good deal? Dealer had agreed to an 8K reduction from MSRP but on bringing up Fleet Incentive said he cannot add on top.
