Are you saying they should start at $1500 below invoice before any deductions for owner layalty for the 2010 e350 4matic.
Also I need to get 2 E350's one for me one for my mom. Last month my father leased an ml350 should he get owner loyalty for buying another? It will actually be leased in his name.
My understanding is you get owner loyalty if you are comming out of a mercedes lease and leasing another.

I joined USAA as a civilian (airforce academy) and my discount on a E350 is $2200 off invoice. Are USAA discounts tiered such that some member categories get higher discounts than others?

I think that includes loyalty incentive since they know I'm on a MB lease. But the loyalty cash only apply to Sedan and NOT on coupe.

the 1500 below invoice is the discount given to people who work for a major corp, if you qualify for that they can give you also another 2000 off if you are going from a lower class benz to a higher class. their are many different ways it can work. let me know if you have any more question.

I think I did good

What would the leases breakdown to without the prepaid maintenance?
A good way to evaluate leases is to see how close the payment is to 1% of the msrp. Your fleet plans made that closer than most of us could get at this time. All in all seems like you did well above average since there is no support on the new E class. Hope to drive one next year -- sticking with the luxury pack -- like a softer ride that the sport suspension seems to have. Enjoy your mb's.

My lease was supposed to be $625. I received a call from someone other than the salesman before I picked up the car to try to up sell me wheel and tire insurance and the maintenance. For the maintenance he wanted $10 extra per month. we settled on $8 extra per month.
$8 x 39 mos = $312 for 3 maintenance services. I figured I could'nt beat that so I took it.
Drive the no cost sport option before you buy or lease. the ride is not that stiff. I love it. Also the no cost sport option gives you the nice trapezoid exaust pipes integrated into the rear bumper. Look at the difference.

How did you achieve such a great deal. If you don't mind sharing, what was your cap cost, money factor and residual?
