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 3255 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.">

Money Factor is .00146 - .00010 reduction with auto pay.
30 month term 10k = 66% with 12k = 65%
36 month term 10k = 57% with 12k = 56%
