A one pay lease is good option if you have the extra cash laying around and don't mind paying more upfront, especially on a 24 month lease. However, Mercedes has a generous early turn in program (as much as 8 months early) that you will not benefit from if you do the one pay option.
Things to keep in mind:
Top Tier Buy Money Factor .00162
Base Acquistion Fee $795
Winter Event $2,000
I believe there is an unadvertised Winter Event incentive of $2,000 to be used in cases where a customer does not qualify for either Conquest or Loyalty. Basically, anyone can get a $2,000 rebate.
Conquest, Winter Event and Fleet/USAA are mutually exclusive.
However, Loyalty can be combined with either one.
I suggest looking into a 24 month lease as well. Residuals are in the high 60s to low 70s, and depending on discount, can be cheaper than the 36 or 30 month leases.
As far as discount, depending on competition in your area, I would look to a sellling price below invoice before the $2,000 incentive.
BMW and Mercedes-Benz are in a sales war for the top Luxury Brand Auto Sales for 2011 (The first year in like 12 years it will not be Lexus) and excellent deals can be had this month.

I'm negotiating on a 2012 e350 bluetec/diesel. Please tell me the top tier money factor for the 24 month lease and all incentives available to me, given that I'm driving a BMW 528i I'd be trading in (ie, conquest money). Can I also get the Winter event incentive?

I believe the base rate money factor is .00225 and the 24 month residual is 75% for 15k miles per year.
You can not combine Winter Event, Conquest, or USAA/Fleet, they are mutually exclusive.
The only thing that is combinable with any of the above is loyalty (and the only way to qualify for loyalty is to have a current Mercedes-Benz Financial contract)
I would ask your dealer to see if there are any 2011 Blue-tecs out there, as the lease program is virtually the same, (or at least it was in November, they may have pulled support in December) but you get $4,000 Conquest instead of $2,000.

Forgot to add that the 36 month, 15k residual is 57%.
Base Rate Money Factor is .00162.

On the 2012 E350 Bluetech I've found the following numbers for a 24 month lease with 10K miles per year:
MF - .00230
RV - 78%
The MF is higher than on the gas, but the RV is higher too.

Loyalty incentives can not be combined with any other incentives...

Loyalty can not be combined with Winter Event or Conquest, but I thought I remember being told that you can combine it with Fleet/USAA?
#2090 of 3269 One-pay lease for 2012 E350 Coupe
Dec 15, 2011 (6:31 pm)
I'm currently looking to lease a 2012 E350 Coupe in Boston, MA.
No experience with leasing whatsoever. And I still can't quite wrap my head around it after reading so many useful info you all have put up here. So your thoughts on my current offer would be greatly appreciated:
2012 E350 Coupe
24 months 10,000 miles/year
MSRP = $62,925 (P2, AMG, etc)
Discounted price = $56,000
2-yr maintenance = $619
Tax rate = 6.25%
Acquisition fee = $1,095
Title + registration + doc fess = $590
Residual = $44,480
All these amount to One-pay lease of = $20,650.
Is this a reasonable deal at all? Any things I should investigate further? Thank you so much in advance.

Not bad, you have about $2,200 left to play with in the selling price. The Acq. fee should be $795. Title and registration for for Mass is about $200 if that… so there doc fee which is pure profit is about $290. Looks like they gave you the .00075 reduction on the money factor for the 1 pay and the .00010 reduction for auto pay. You can definitely bring the payment down another $40 to $50 per month. Just let them know your aware of them marking up the Acq fee and that the doc fee is all profit. They may try a line like we have the cheapest doc fee in all of Mass… its still all profit.">
