After Studying the Forums on Edmunds I beleive I just pulled off the Deal of the year !!!
I had 11 months left on a 2009 Infiniti G37x Coupe payyoff was $32,435 11 payments on a 3 year lease of $563.00 per month. The MB dealership paid off my car IN FULL.
Manheim's Best price for Solds was 26k.
I took advantage of the MB 10 security deposit that I learned about on Edmunds.
I leased a 2011 MB E350 4 Matic Sport Model P1 with Panoramic roof stick $59,640
24 months / 30k miles
$1686.00 out of pocket (First month, Acquisition, tax, plate transfer)
23 more payments of $619.00 I have leased allot of cars and worked deals really hard.
But Im Sure this is this one takes the cake ...
I contacted 5 other MB dealerships and they all told me NO WAY !!!
I am burning GAS and this vehicle is an amazing machine.

Negotiated price with Conquest: $48,695
Drive off: $859 (First monthly payment, Title/License/Registration)
Monthly payment: 463.59 plus tax

Congratulations, seattlecruiser! I have two questions for you.
1. For each security deposit, I have heard that you receive 0.00007 reduction in MF. Is this what you received? So for 10 security deposits MF=0.00170 (~4% interest), correct?
2. If you elect to pay multiple security deposits, is the money held with the leasing dealer or MB finance? The reason for my query is that we may move, so we would likely return the car to an MB dealer in a different state.

Correct, you get a 0.00007 reduction per deposit. Combined with auto-pay it ended up being a money factor of 0.0015, or 3.6%. The security deposit is submitted to MB Financial with the other paperwork. I wrote two checks, one for the drive-off to the dealer, and a second one for the security deposit. Hope this helps.

I forgot about the lease origination fee that was rolled into the gross capitalized cost, so the money factor in the previous post is incorrect. It's actually 0.00112, or 2.7% with the 10 security deposits.

Thanks for the guidance, seattlecruiser. I have one remaining question. What is the amount of each security deposit?
