Hi Guys abd Gals,
I have really enjoyed reading the different posts. All the information really helped me discover what a decent deal should look like.
Here's mine, not the best but very doable by anyone.
2007 Mercedes-Benz ML350 AWD
Exterior Color: White
Interior Leather: Beige
Premium 1 Package
6-Disc CD Changer
Selling Price (Cap Cost): $44,022.00
Lease Term: 33 Months 10,000 miles annually
Down Payment: $4000
Monthly Payment (including 7.75% OC tax): $571.47
Money factor (.00185)
Acquisition Fee $1095.00 (They wouldn't budge on this)
License Fee $352.00
Doc. Prep. Fee $45.00
Californina Tire Fee $8.75
Cap. Cost Reduction $1707.00
Plus 1st Payment $571.47
= $4000.00 Down
I did this through a broker - Fleet Direct in Southern California. Picked up the car at their office. Took 20 min. and drove away. No grief!
BMW could not go below invoice so MB won.

Thanks for the information!
I read your previous post. Did you lease the ML 350? If so, are you happy with the car?
#144 of 1613 Special MF for '07s Not on CDI
Jul 18, 2007 (1:41 pm)
FYI, my dealer says the '07 320CDI gets the 61% residual for 33 months (10K/year), but not the low MF referred to above that the 350 gets. Base rate I was quoted was .00380!
That sort of negates the $2,000 dealer cash and high residual. Looks like I'll wait for an '08 (prices for which are just out).

Yes. It is a great car. I just sold my 05 525. I bought the 07 ML350 with premium 1, 6 disc cd changer and appearance package(this is a must). The car is super smooth, love the electonic shifter as it leaves space on center console, 21 mpg and extremely safe and solid. I dont have leather but the MB Tex is real nice,,Also get the black interior as gray just doesn't look good. Plenty of power from the 3.5 L untra refined V6. The X5 are nice but this suv is classy and the 7 speed tranny is smooth. Again sticker 49000 i paid 46190.00 33 months 3k down .00175 lease factor 61 percent pymt with tax 640.00.
#146 of 1613 2008 ML-350 Lease Values?
Jul 21, 2007 (11:04 pm)
Hi everyone, I'm new and my name is Marc. I think this forum concept is awesome! There's power in numbers, isn't there!
So does anyone know when/what the key lease values (Residual, Money Factors, etc.) will be for leasing a 2008? I'm a Tier1 FICO.
Also generally, how willing are the dealers willing to sell near invoice at the start of a new model year?
Finally, does anyone know what feature changes are in store for 2008 model?
Thanks in advance,
