#218 of 1672 Lease info. please?
Nov 29, 2007 (11:57 am)
i am considering leasing a 2008 mercedes c300 - automatic with leather and maybe premium package. i am due to turn in my audi a4 by mid december. looking for some figures but am a little concerned with that outrageous money factor which hopefully will go down for december. i am also considering another a4, and a bmw x3.
- i live in NJ
- looking to lease for anywhere from 36-42 months
- 12,000 miles per year
- what would be december residuals on this car and money factor?
- what fees should i expect to pay upfront on this car and are any of them negotiable?
- what should i strive for over invoice on this car? it seems that invoice on this car is about 34,500?
- also, any incentives i should be aware of for december?
- lastly, anyone know difference between sport model and luxury? i can't seem to figure out what is different between the two.
#219 of 1672 C300 Sport 4MATIC LEASE NJ
Nov 29, 2007 (4:08 pm)
I am looking to lease a C 300 sport 4MATIC and in the NJ area.
10K miles a year is good enough for me, i'm trying to figure out what ball park i am in for monthly and what i need to bring to the table in terms of cap cost reduction.
If anyone has recently scored a nice deal in NJ, would appreciate any details, dealer info.

This seems like a good deal. I had a dealer tell me that the C300 sport with Premium 1 and multi-media would be about $650/month with $2,200 down (15,000 miles/year). I don't have the residual and money factor #'s handy----I'm frustrated b/c this seems like a lot of $. I am trying to get the monthly lease down to $500-$525. Any advice??

I think it is very difficult to get a good deal on C-class, they are hot and so the dealers/MB can get away with high MFs. Having said that, I was offered invoice pricing at a dealer in NJ for C sport with automatic and Multimedia package, which came to about $465/month for 3 years with 7.5K miles and about $2.5K of fees, first month payment, dealer fees and other upfront. You would pay more for more miles. I was ready to take this deal but there are no cars with multimedia but without P1 and I didn't want to wait for a factory order.
If you have any flexibility, wait a couple of months (may be a while). I got an E-class for 2 years and after that I will look for C-class to be more affordable for a lease.

Doesn't seem bad, but you might be able to do a bit better.
I recently was offered in NJ a C300 4Matic Luxury with P1 at $480/mth incl Tax with no Cap Cost Reduction. Didn't take it since I need to get out of my last 2 mths on an 04 C240 first.
I suggest you bid them at 480 with Tax and see what they do....
Do me a favor and email me your dealer and final deal negotiated so I can use when I go back.....(jguraverizon.net)

#227 of 1672 CA sales Tax
Dec 12, 2007 (2:24 pm)
I am buying out my leased car at the end of the lease. The residual is around 12 for C230 2DR 2003. Mercedez is quoting $980 sales tax for this- Does this sound right? I had read some time ago that there is a way to get around it by going to a middle man a.ka carmax.com and something like that.. I don't remember the whole thing but I remember previousl messages about this.. can some body help me out? and then what is the best price I should negotiate for this car? thanks,,, samantha
