Hi eclipse2. The dealer invoice price of the car that you described is $65,036. Even if you were to subtract the $2,000 owner loyalty cash that is currently available on this car from that it still would only drop to $63,000. The selling price that you were quoted is way below that. If you are able to get this car for $59,800 snatch it up.
Mercedes-Benz Financial's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2010 E550 4Matic Sedan with 12,000 miles per year are .00220 and 53%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier. I believe that Mercedes allows these terms to be used for 39 month leases as well through its Value Added program.

What is the current MF and residual for a E550 Cabriolet 36 mos/10000 miles per month? What should the bank and document fees be (not including cost of registration and taxes)? Thanks.

Does anyone know if Costco has a negotiated price yet for the e cabriolet and if not when they'd be likely to have one? Thanks.

No buying program currently has a negotiated price on either E350 or E550 Cabs. More than likely no buying program will have a negotiated price any time soon as long as dealers are able to move their stock fairly easy, as the costco buying program is dealer invoice, I doubt you will see any dealers adding the Cab to the program before winter when demands for Convertibles normally drops off naturally. Depending on where you are located you can expect to get between $0 to about $2-3k discount off MSRP with bigger discounts on E350 over E550 because their are currently many more E350 on the ground. MBUSA is shipping 5-6x as many E350 as E550 which is why E550 tends to be harder to find.
The bank and document fee vary by state, in some states dealers are not allowed to mark up either fee where as in other states dealers are free to mark up both by any amount they want. The true acquisition fee charged by MBF is $795 but you will be hard pressed to find any dealer charging $795 in most states. I know in Los Angeles all dealer quote a $1095 acquisition fee. Document fee for example in Ca is capped at $50 and most dealer charge $50 and again it will be super hard to find any dealer charging less than $50 for that fee as well.
Currently unless you can afford to buy the cabs cash in my opinion, it is not worth owning them as leasing makes no sense. You can lease an SL550 for the about the same monthly lease payment as E550 currently. The current interest rate offered via MBF is 6.9% for 36 months which is not hard to beat at all. MBUSA is basically saying they want to get paid cash for these cars and have no interest to lease or finance them which is why the rates are a joke.
The current lease programs on the Cabs are as follows:
2011 Mercedes E350 Cab
24 Month – Residual 60% of MSRP – .00395 Base Rate
36 Month – Residual 55% of MSRP – .00395 Base Rate
48 Month – Residual 46% of MSRP – .00395 Base Rate
60 Month – Residual 38% of MSRP – .00395 Base Rate
2011 Mercedes E550 Cab
24 Month – Residual 58% of MSRP – .00395 Base Rate
36 Month – Residual 53% of MSRP – .00395 Base Rate
48 Month – Residual 44% of MSRP – .00395 Base Rate
60 Month – Residual 36% of MSRP – .00395 Base Rate
Residuals posted are for 15K miles/year. Add 2% to Residual for 12k mi/yr and 3% for 10k mi/yr and 4% for 7.5k mi/yr on all terms.
