Hi mssdivaesq. Fourteen months is a lot of remaining payments. Last month Mercedes was waiving up to eight months on certain models for free, but even then you'd still have to eat four payments on your car to get something new this early. I personally would wait, unless you are able to cut your payment significantly from what you are paying right now.
Mercedes-Benz Financial's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 E350 Sedan with 15,000 miles per year are .00157 and 52%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

I am in So Cal as well and I am using your deal as a benchmark. How much was your "Costco" discount? I was offered a "Costco Discount" of $6,365 on an MSRP of $59,405. Seems like yours was more. In addition when I asked for the Loyalty discount I was told it was not available with the Costco deal. Looks like your residual was 66%. What was your MF? So far, on a 30 month/15K deal my MF is .00158 and res 61%, I am still about $100 a month off your deal...great job! Any help would be appreciated.

I'm not sure of the MF. I leased the car in Dec. with 12k/yr for 30 months. I think the 15k /yr would have added about $40/month with tax. I think I received $2k loyalty. Honestly, I leased the car with NO negotiation. The first price I got was $604 for 10k/yr--I added maintenance for $12/month, and upped the mileage to 12k/yr for $24/month=$640/month--with bank fee and first payment and plates at signing.

You might want to add mercedes basic maintenance to the lease.....if the dealer will include it as an option on the car vs something you have to pay in full over the life of the lease. Many of us have had it added this way and as a result, we only pay a small percent of the price for our maintenance during the lease. (on a feature, you only pay the difference between the 100% and the residual value...eg. if residual is 65%, you will only pay 35% of the maintenance fee plus some interest).
Give it a try....

I think it is a good deal. Is it a 4 matic one with any option? You got good price in sale price and Residual value. Which dealer is it from the sales tax it is seems like from Nassau or Suffolk.

A reporter is working on a story about car technology and is looking for recent or current car shoppers for whom technology was a critical factor. Were you looking to pack your car with as much new technology as possible? Are there special technologies and systems that you care about more than others? And are you at all concerned about the role technology plays with distracted driving? Please send an email with contact information and a brief description of your experience by no later than Sunday, February 5, 2012.

Dealer quoted $12/mo ($396 total over 33mos) for 30k Maintenance (3 - 10k service appointments).
Seems reasonable as it supposedly lists for $750-800 from what I was told. Thanks for the suggestion.
