larrym---I don't know about 10,000 miles but in December I was told that the RV for a 12,000 mile lease for 24 months on an E350 coupe was 69%. I was given an MF of .00160. This money factor was higher than the E350 sedan (which was .00121) and the RV was lower than the sedan (was quoted 71% on sedan for 24 months at 12,000 miles.) I could have leased the sedan for $455ish which included tax with 1st month and inceptions down. However, the E coupe I was looking at (just shy of $60,000 MSRP) would have been $699ish a month which included tax already plus first month down and inceptions down. Even though I really wanted the coupe, I just couldn't pull the trigger knowing the price difference between the cars.
I was told that the MF on the coupe is never as strong as the MF on the 350 sedan. Also, Mercedes Benz was obviously supporting the sedans more given the $4000 toward the sedan vs. $2000 toward the coupe. I decided to wait a few months and see what happens. Maybe I should have just leased the sedan---it was a great deal.
People have now said twice that the programs for January are the same as for December. However, on the incentives and rebates page of Edmunds it does not look like MB is giving any loyalty cash this month? It also does not show that they are allowing you to terminate your MB lease 5 months early---whereas in December I know that they were letting you out early if getting another MB. If there is no cash this month then despite the numbers being the same in January the prices will be much worse.
Can someone please give specifics for January (MF, RV, loyalty cash?, early termination of prior MB lease?) for the E 350 sedan AND the E350 coupe at both 10,000 miles and 12,000 miles for 24 vs. 36 month leases!!! Thanks.

The lease pull through for this month is only 4 months of payments covered. I had a chance to lease on a sick deal earlier in the month for like 480inc tax, 1050 DO, 24 mo lease 7500 miles per and a 62k msrp -- N Cal
I think that deal is still avail but I have longer on my lease so I will wait.

My deal was for a 2013 e350 4matic sedan
MSRP: $60,515 gave it to me for around $51,500
Monthly: $540 a month 24months/12K miles
Due at signing 1st payment + registration: $760
I would not pay more than this, as the new design is just around the corner and they need to move inventory of current design EClass.
On a side note, the deal was so good, that my brother is getting the same for $544 ($4 more due to NY registration vs. NJ registration for my car).
Let me know if you want me to connect you with the person at the dealership.
And yes I am very much enjoying my car!

Great deal! Any idea what the payment would have been for 36 or 48 months?

So I can tell you which dealership to go to....also when I do share, please don't tell the dealership about this forum, it won't help us they'll plug false/misleading data for their own benefit.....
