There are huge discounts to be had on the E, or at least with the sedan. FWIW, I leased a 2013 E350 BlueTEC in December. Discount was 17% off MSRP, the residual on it was 74%... do the math and that's just 9% depreciation over 2 years and 20,000 miles of driving. Did maximum MSDs and auto-pay for a .0008 money factor. The result is less than what most pay to lease a Honda Accord EX.
The E Coupe is nice, but if you want a steal, go for the diesel sedan. Highest residual of any Mercedes.

smartfanatics - doesn't appear there is a PM function on here and I don't want to publish my email address to the forum. Perhaps you could just publish the dealer, city and state and first name only of the salesperson. This seems to fit the rules of the forum. Thanks for taking the time to reply and help out. Cheers
#2814 of 2973 residuals for wagons

Everyone seems to be getting nice deals on the sedan, but what is the actual residual and money factors and selling prices? Also, does anyone know what the residuals and money factors are for the wagons? Are the same as the sedan?

Which dealership did you get the car from? East coast or west coast?
Jan 25, 2013 (10:28 am)
My dealership can't come within a mile of these deals. After walking away multiple times the best they can do is about $22k on a one pay or ~790/mo, this is on an E350 4matic msrp $61k over 30 months, negotiated cost about $53k. 24 months actually cost more than 30. Salesman assures me that the stuff I read on the internet is not real.
I'm getting the right ballpark money off MSRP but no traction on the lease. I am in Indiana, need a dealership within 200 miles of Chicago. It is a small dealership. Do these deals only exist in New York? Would a bigger dealership play ball?

Your salesperson is giving you BS. On this car you should be close to $500 / month.
Try other dealerships.how far are you from MI?
