Well, I went to the dealership to finish the deal last night. The lease just wasn't feasible. The money factor was too high (.00395)and the residual was too low (47%). He did drop the price to $51,900. The purchase payment vs. the lease payment is very tempting. Add to that, the car is an absolute creampuff (almost literally because it's alabaster white with the light beige interior ) and only has 58 miles on it; ten of those by me.
It was manufactured in Sep. '05. Isn't it abnormal for a Mercedes to sit unsold for over a year; especially one with so few miles? I could see a demo car sitting that long, but this car is literally a baby as far as miles go. It still has the plastic on the seatbelts in the back. And it's beautiful.
The biggest downfall? To get the purchase payment to where I'm semi-comfortable, I have to dump a wad of cash for the downpayment. Whereas, if I'm reading things correctly, at the current MF on the 2007 BMW 550i, I could lease it for a slightly less payment and no money out of my pocket.

WI Simonson in Santa Monica CA has this special:

(2 available / No substitutions)
(Premium Package 1)
MSRP = $53,715
Drive-off Total = $5,399
10k miles per year
27 months = $399 + tax
so the deal is really for $2639 down and $499 a month and you get Nav too.

#276 of 3263 Maintenance Costs
Nov 15, 2006 (5:49 pm)
I am considering a lease on an '07 E-350. The lease appears to be a good deal, but I am disappointed with not having the total maintenance that MB used to include.
Can anyone tell me the maintenance costs I will have to pay? The lease is for 27 months and I want to know how often the oil has to be changed, approx.cost, and any other expenses; tire rotations, etc. that I might not know about.
Thanks in advance for your replys.

crazy expense- average 90-100/hr
you can call your dealers service department and ask how much an A service is and a B service and how many you will need- for the term you are leasing
hell- negioate for it with your sales rep....for them to include it like bmw.
you can also look at mbusa.com and see what is included in a A service vs B.
A= Oil change and kick the tires-
B= all filters , and some other stuff
