#2410 of 3271 Used E-Class lease questions
Aug 10, 2012 (5:41 am)
All the info here is very helpful. I cant find much discussion on pre-owned leases though.
Does anyone have any experience with doing them? I have access to Mercedes Benz Financial residual values and money factor rates for pre-owned but im wondering how if the structure of the lease is any different or if there is anything to be aware of?
I assume freight is not charged, are MDS's allowed?
Any thoughts would be helpful.
Im looking at 2010 E63 or 2011 E 550......

Actually the 2011 was never titled so I believe it can be leased as new right?
If thats the case I am trying to figure out what residual value you would use? I have pre-owned 2011 numbers but not "new". The MSRP would still be what it is new?
#2412 of 3271 E350 & E350 Bluetec Lease
Aug 12, 2012 (8:42 pm)
I'm in SoCal-LA area and looking for new lease to replace my 2010 R350 lease that expire in 5 months. This weekend I emailed few dealers and here is what I got so far for my 24mo/12k mi per yr lease:
2012 E-Bluetec is rare (3 left) but 2013 E-Bluetec is one of the dealer I search. One dealer in Irvine, CA won't go lower then $599mo. w/8.75% tax w/$2k drive off on $61k MSRP. Other dealer with 2012 & 2013 yet to responsed with number.
2012 E350 provide huge discount but some dealers already runs out. I'm able to get quote for $499/mo. w/8.75% tax w/$1k drive off on $56k MSRP, and I know it can go lower and few dealer also indicate they can match or beat if I go visit them...
2013 E350 even with 10% MSRP discount, the quote is around $600 w/tax w/$2k drive off on $58k MSRP.
Never own Bluetec so will love to give it a try. Any one know MY2013 Bluetec incentive is same as MY2012?

I don't believe there are any money offers on the 2013's yet....Since yo have 5 months, I would wait until next month....or lease a 2012 which is essentially the same car as the 2013, if you find one equipped the way you like it. $3000 conquest money, 76% residual and the discount using multiple security deposits make it a very cheap lease. If you belong to MBCA, don't forget that $1000 extra discount and any discount from mercedes finance as a loyal customer.

Thanks Gh, actually no dealer shows concent on 5mo pmts so waiting till next month well lower the chance to get into 2012 deals on both e-BTC or E. I know I'm getting the loyalty and fleet emp disc from my co. Is my MBCA membership can add on top of it? The number I quote earlier yet to consider the FED and MBCA.
#2415 of 3271 Aug numbers for E350 gas?
Aug 13, 2012 (9:30 am)
Hello Car_man, for Aug, what is the residual % and MF for 2012 E350 gas? Do you have info for 2013 as well?
I am trying to strike a deal this month if the incentives are good..i know that 2012 inventories are low so may consider waiting for 2013 or at least comparing.
Thanks in advance
#2416 of 3271 What do you think of this deal?
Aug 14, 2012 (8:06 am)
Hi everyone, what do you think of this deal I have been offered:
MB e350 sedan
Agreed price:= 51510
miles/ yr = 12K
residual= 30488 (53%)
Term of lease = 36 mos.
To me the residual seems too low...can anyone comment on this or the deal overall?
Thankyou in advance

2012 or 2013?
I'm not sure about 3 yr lease but 2 yr lease is 72% and my guess is 3yr should be around low 60% range not low 50%.
I'm currently dealing 2013 and they seems to use the same residual 72% for 2 yrs lease. As for 2013 E350 BTC, no one want to use 76% for 2 yr lease just yet.

I think the money factor should be .0013 and that the pmt is before tax. It looks like the dealer is including $3000 conquest cash plus giving you a $3000 discount after including "adminstrative fee" so that's good and they are charging $795 bank/aquisition fee and not marking that up. Seems like an ok deal although if the mf is adjusted to .0013, the payment will be closer to $710 before taxes. I assume you aren't getting the mercedes finance loyalty credit or the MBCA $1000 discount....or are they included in the deal.
