#543 of 1650 First time lease, first Mercedes, thanks in advance

I am looking to lease a 2010 c300 sport. Currently MBUSA.com is adverting a special lease offer of $399/month for 36 months with $4,844 due at signing. This includes 10k miles per year, automatic transmission and premium package.
I am interested in getting this lease, but either eliminating the premium package or substituting other options.
Can the Mercedes special lease offers be modified?
I am hoping that by eliminating the premium package i can either reduce my monthly payment or down payment.
Please Advise...thanks in advance

jwilliams2.....I don't understand what you mean by your statement that CarMan's comment "about "power bills, floorplan", etc it totally off the wall" Could you please elaborate on that?

Hi Billmv, the discussion had to do with why the dealers invoice is higher than the numbers on Edmunds. Car_man is simply mistaken when he assumes IRG is not included in the MB invoice to the dealer. The numbers shown on Edmunds are understated, which leads to questions like that posted by ursus.
Edmunds does have a clickable link under their "National Base Price" explaining IRG or ADV, but most folks don't bother reading it.
Power bills and floorplan simply have nothing to do with it, and weren't pertinent to the conversation.

Scottamc....That sounds like a pretty good deal...What was your money factor and residual? Do you know that the residual would be for 36mo/10K for 2009 C300 Sport?

I was just offered this deal after going into the dealership last night.
Note I am going to speak with them in a bit regarding the exact details so will update it when I get back.
minus Margin in Car (I would think margin in MSRP - Invoice, so at invoice)
Addition 4k off for selling price
Lease rate of 233 (employee lease rate?)
What do you guys think?
Residual 55% on 36 mo

Yes do update. I'm looking for a 2009 C300 Sport with P2/MM/Auto and one dealer is offering about 8K under MSRP and employee pricing for lease MF. She didn't say exact MF but something in the 200's.
