Hi rravin. Mercedes-Benz Financial's May buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 24-month lease of a 2013 E350 Coupe with 15,000 miles per year are .00125 and 67% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.
The numbers for an otherwise identical 36-month lease are .00125 and 57%.
The lease program for the 4Matic version of this car is the same.
The spring event certificates are no longer around, but there is similar customer one certificates out there that provide $3,000 on the '13 E.

Hi cboy3. The lease program that you were quoted for this car is correct.

Dealerships in Ohio are not dealing on 13 e350s.
27 month lease
15k miles per year
800 per month
Another dealership 785 per month
They will not budge on price and bulk at the low 500 per month deals some of you are getting.

In addition to reducing the purchase price, you should also check that all the variables are fair.
- What are the RV and MF and are these values consistent with what MBFS numbers?
- Is the MF the base rate MF or has the dealer marked it up?
- What acquisition fee are they charging you?
If your dealers remain unwilling to negotiate, you may want to consider contacting dealers out of state. I know that there are plenty of dealers in CA that would be happy to ship a 2013 to OH.

The local dealer here in Denver is quoting a 27 month lease on a E 350, but with a $1,075 acquisition fee and a 595 turn in fee plus a $3,000+ down payment. Can any of these terms be negotiated?
#2979 of 3245 Bad timing for good price?
May 27, 2013 (8:07 pm)
I'm curious if this is a bad time of year to try to find a good price. I am seeing higher monthly rates and drive away charges on here lately than people were posting back in February. I currently drive a much loved '99 4matic E 320 which has faithfully done its job all these years, but it's looking its age.
I'd like a Luxury model E 350 4matic sedan, black with a black interior - we blondes look better in all black cars , a moon roof, Premium I package and a Lane tracking package. I am not sure about the Driver assist package as I don't know much about it, yet. My local dealer was a bit less than helpful when I went by a few days ago. Getting info was like pulling teeth and asking to go for a test drive was like I was asking for something peculiar. He tried to sell me a low mileage '11 for $52,600 before I convinced him I wasn't interested in a three year old car that was five grand less than the price he finally came down to on a brand new '14.
He'd originally quoted $62,000 for the '14, but after my asking for a better price a few times, slowly dropped down to $57,000. He said it would cost $619 a month to lease it with $6,700 down (795 bank fee, 1st month, sales tax, etc.) Am I wrong that these seem high and I could do better?
Will there be any incentives coming along in the next month or two that anyone knows about? Thanks.
#2980 of 3245 Are these terms correct

Can someone let me know what the MF and R% is on a E350 4Matic, 36 months, 12K per year? Also what MB Financial's acquisition fee is and if there is a turn-in fee? Thanks!

The acquisition fee seems high as the standard is $795 although many dealers mark it up as an additional profit source. I personally don't mind paying it provided I can adjust the other lease levers to my favor (e.g., final purchase price, MSDs off the buy rate MF, etc.). In my opinion, I would never pay any moneys up front or make it as close to $0 as possible. Upfront moneys are dollars that I will never recoup in the event the car is stolen or damaged. I only care about the total dollars that I have to expend over the lease term.

I've been trying to figure this out myself. This board was very informative before Christmas, and hasn't been nearly as active with people posting about the deals they received and where.
I am getting quoted mid 700's to low 800's on a 2013 e-class lease.

Here in Northern California 2013 e350s are routinely leasing for under $500 with $3K down for 27 months at 10K mi per year.
Dealer here just offered me at 4matic, p1, lane assist, split folding seats for $499 including taxes.
I found a p2 car with more stuff for the same rates but $5k down for $500 per month. I took that deal.
