Hi Mike. Mercedes-Benz Financial's March buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 24-month lease of a 2013 E350 Sedan with 12,000 miles per year are .00141 and 69% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tiers.
The numbers for an otherwise identical 36-month lease are .00141 and 58%.
The numbers for the E350 Bluetec are .00205 / 73% and .00205 / 62% for Tier 1 customers.
The numbers for the E400 Hybrid are .00205 / 71% and .00205 / 60% for Tier 1 customers.
Some of these models may be eligible for Mercedes-Benz Financial's "Value Added" program, which enables you to use the 24-month lease program for 27-month terms.
A $5,500 discount on these cars is pretty good.

Thanks Car_man. Would you by any chance know if the "Spring Event" certificates are combinable with USAA or another fleet program such as the ABA?

Hi, I am getting ready to lease e350 AWD sedan. 27 mo 15k miles, 2300 down, 719 mo. is this a good deal, or should I wait for 2014 which is coming out soon? Thanks

When I wasn't in the market for a car, this message board was flooded with individuals posting about the great deals received on E-classes. Now since I am in the market for a mercedes, I am not seeing any updates. Is this a bad time to lease a Mercedes and receive a great deal?

NOT a good deal. Scroll back. One month ago 0 down 500 and change a month was the norm.

I am also working a deal on a 2013 E350 Cab with different color/options. Based upon the information I got from car_man above and others, assuming your credit is good, they are playing with the money factor.
For 36/15K the MF should be .0016. The residual is correct. There is also a Spring Event certificate available for $2K. See message number 2900 above.
One dealer told me that they can use the 24 month MF and residual over 27 months as part of the Spring Event, but another told me that it was not available on the Cabriolets.
Are you using any certificates like USAA for fleet pricing to bring the price down? Where are you located and what dealer are you working with?

The dealer admitted to bumping up the MF from .0016 to .0019 after I confronted him. He was very cool and honest about it. MB allows dealers to bump MF's by 110 basis points. They gave me $5000 off the MSRP which was nice and the reason they could was the bump in money factor. The bump meant $30 more in monthly payment. He said if we did .0016... the discount off MSRP would have been a bit lower and the payment would be the same $957.. they're gonna get their number no matter how you slice it. I'm in New York
In addition, with 5 payments left on my CLS... MB is paying 3 of them and the dealer is picking up payment #4 and $400 of the last payment. So, I'm paying an additional $700 to get out early. I think its a very fair deal.

I'm trying to understand why 1 or two months ago, people were leasing e-classes for 5 and some change per month, with nearly zero down. I realize supply is low, because the new body style is coming out, but I don't understand how some of you are justifying the extra money per month (hundreds) and money down (thousands)? I am angry with myself for not leasing a couple of months ago. Hopefully some more people will post the current deals they are receiving.
