#745 of 1997 Re: MF and Res for 2010 sport 300c lease [msimeone]
Jul 24, 2010 (6:05 pm)
The MF is still .00057 and the residual for 10k miles is 58%
There are Ambassador programs being offered, with the MF at .0002
Here are some insights into the numbers, for the finance manager to make some money, they will want to mark up the .0002. You can either negotiate on the price of the car, or the MF, or both, but likely you will only get them to go so far. The rate you're paying on .00057 is a whopping 1.3%.
Also I don't think there's much point to picking up the prepaid maintenance. You can get the work done cheaper outside of MB
If you think you are going to lease another Mercedes at the end of the one you're looking to pick up, do not buy more miles. In this current pull forward program, they were offering to pay the last 5 payments. You can basically turn in your call at the cap of the miles ( say 3 years, 30k miles) even though you are not driving it until the end ( turning in at 31 months)
#746 of 1997 Leasing 2010 C300 Newbie
Jul 25, 2010 (6:46 am)
I'm looking to lease the following and wanted to know if you thought I'm on the mark, here is the sticker:
C300W4 Base Price: $37,100
Iridium Silver $720
Premium I Package: SIRIUS Satellite $2,300
iPod Integration Kit $375
Burl Walnut Wood Trim $320
DESTINATION & DELIVERY $875
I don't need the Ipod thing or even the walnut trim but they only have a few 2010 cars left and the current promotion "ends" August 2nd.
So for 12k miles per year/36 months and about $2700 down (including 1st month payment, bank fee, acquisition) I would be at $427/month. I think the dealer marked it down to like $37,800 in order to arrive at this but not sure.
I live in NJ but am going to a dealer in NY. I believe I have to pay all the taxes upfront since I live in NJ so I think that's figured into the "drive-off" mentioned above. I know there is no cap cost reduction.
I don't know the residual or money factor and frankly not sure how to figure that out anyway. I don't plan on buying this car at lease end. I care about the monthly payment and the total drive-off.
Also for an additional $769 they offer the 3 services required over the life of the lease, plus they will pick it up at my house, drop off a loaner, and bring it back when done- washed!
any thoughts? anything I should be asking the dealer? or go for it?
