I think the C's are moving at the current prices/deals so I'm not sure they will be better in a month. As far as cars coming in Sept/Oct...they are in build now...a dealer hasn't been able to order a 2008 for over a month now. They will arrive in the US next month and unless Mercedes holds them in their storage areas, they will move right out to dealers...so Sept is a salesman "blowing smoke" to get you to focus on what they have.
There are a few changes in the 2009's but nothing mechanical...memory seats, wood grain dash, cashmere interior on more models. On a lease, go for the deal...on a purchase, maybe you want to wait to avoid one year's depreciation in one month.

Thanks ghstudio. I'm definitely leasing. So the numbers I listed sound like a good deal? I just thought they would be lower and if not today, maybe in a month?

you might price out a 27 month lease...might be less money....
Last week, I was quoted 585 plus tax with no money down on 27mo lese for the same with metalic paint and ipod but without p2.

I just leased an C300 4matic with P1, $485 month plus tax with no money down, 15k miles per year. The term is also 39 months.

I plan to get a 2009 C300 Sport. I prefer to pay cash for cars. However, given the way the price of gasoline has been going up I wonder if I might not be better off leasing my car. In three years a car that gets 17 mpg in the city might be really undesirable. Who knows -- gas could be $6 to $8 a gallon.

That's exactly why I am leasing for 24/27 months. I don't have to worry about the value of the car in a couple of years and there will be a whole set of fuel efficient choices to make then.

that is a great deal. i have been considering this car, and im in the cleveland area. i was wondering if you could list your options or if you paid any dealer fees up front and if i could drop you an email to further discuss your experience.
