#2797 of 3245 Picked up my E350
Jan 22, 2013 (1:35 am)
Turned in my 2011 e350 at NYC dealership and got into a 2013 e350 4matic Msrp 59905 non metallic paint P1 spoiler Amg rims rear folding seats 24 month lease 12k miles per year one time pay 12k that's 500 a month. I bluffed a lot and told them I had a deal for 12,300 which in reality I had 12,800. They matched 12,300 and after further negotiating I got 12k. I know I got great deal. Also with a promotion from Mercedes Benz financial I am getting a refund on my last payment on my 2011 which I turned in at the 23 month mark. I can post my residual value on new one my negotiated price was I believe over 8k off Msrp I have all info. Bottom line it breaks down to 500.00 a month 12k miles per year but at this price i had to pre pay lease and is called mercedes one pay so i pre paid entire lease of 12k dollars. I also got winter mats thrown in. I was pushing for 12300 to include 2 year maintenance they said couldn't do but lowered to 12150.00 without maintenance I pushed and got 12000 no maintenance told me best they would do is 12450 with maintenance . I figure 1 oil change at 12k mark is only maintenance car will need. I know first is due at 10k I will hold off lol.

Hey Shappy -
I just realized we got the same car but I did a regular lease instead of a 1 payment and my total amount I'll paid for the whole lease will be $10,801.98.
That's like $1,200 cheaper and I got this car from Manhattan too. You should go back there and tell them you want more off... I dealt with Mike at the store on the Westside.

I agree we got same car and although I loved my deal yours is 100 percent sweeter although I didn't do to shabby I leased at a queens dealership and took delivery yesterday and cant or wont renegotiate my deal just wondering I see you are in the business and might do a lot of business with dealership do you think regular consumer not in the business could have gotten that deal you got. Bottom line I 100 percent believe you got that deal but I 100 question whether someone not in the business could have gotten that deal.

on a single pay lease, what happens if you total the car after 2 or 3 months? Do you lose everything you put into it?

Is the tax and bank fee included in the $442.02 payment or was paid upfront?
#2804 of 3245 Favorable Numbers?
Jan 22, 2013 (7:19 pm)
Gents--I am confused as to how you all are getting such favorable terms on leases. I seek an E-Class Coupe in the Las Vegas area and this is what I am being given:
2013 E350 Coupe: 36 month lease. Advertised lease rate based on MSRP of $55,425 and a gross capitalized cost of $53,788. Includes destination charge. Cash due at signing includes $2,750 capitalized cost reduction, $995 acquisition fee, and first month's lease payment of $629. Total due at signing = $4,374 Residual value at lease end: $33,255.
How can improve on this? I understand that there are ABA and Winter Certificate Discounts. Can anyone possibly provide a sample fee breakdown that I can take to the dealer? I am a neophyte and just finished a year in So. Afghanistan and can't wait to get home and get my benz..makes the dangerous contractor gig worth it. Thanks.

People are getting tremendous discounts off MSRP. Scroll back, some people are getting 10k off.

Favorable Lease on E Coupes are not as good as their Bread and Butter E Sedans as you post states you are only getting 1637 Dollars off of Msrp on an E Sedan I got 8k off of Msrp. I also leased for 24 months Residual value is higher because car has more value going back as a 2 year old vehicle rather than a 3 year old vehicle. I would never pay any type of Capitalized cost reduction that is paying money upfront to lower your monthly payment. (Sucker Move). I would inquire Mercedes one pay which could save you 2000-2500 over cost of lease thats pre paying the lease in full. Coupes and Cabs never are heavily discounted Supply and Demand. Further their is a face lift on the 2014 E350 so they are running GREAT Programs on 2013 s. On a side note buddy got over 7k off Msrp on a 2013 GL truck and this truck is a new body style but a huge gas guzzler. Consider a E Sedan u can cut a great deal only problem most dealers inventories are very scarce for a variety of reasons.
