Hi lou2007. The truck that you're interested in probably has a spread of around $3,800 between its full MSRP and its dealer invoice price. That puts the $3,300 dealer discount that you were quoted at around $500 over invoice...which is a very good deal.
Just make sure that the dealer that you are working with uses Mercedes-Benz Financial's September buy rate lease money factor of .00045 to calculate your monthly payment and you're in business.

Garylam, have you tried pushing harder? Never heard of a dealer closing with the best price in 15 minutes.
Carman - is this a good deal? I was thinking of the same config with 12K miles, but I was really trying to keep it below $600 with the NYS tax. Any chance I can get that?

that's $550 pre tax. x 39 months = 21450 total payment (47% depreciation , 12k)
Full price = 45638
You have to bring the sale price to ~46k...

garylam: yeah, maybe that's just a pipe dream Which dealer did you pick it up from? I'd becoming out of Brooklyn so maybe I can pick it up at the same place.

Would you happen to know what the numbers are for October on 2010 MB ML350 4matic in Northeast (Boston area)?
Thank you in advance!
#828 of 1561 '11 ML350 4matic
Oct 11, 2010 (5:22 pm)
Car_man, I'm looking at a 4matic, P1, running boards, heated seats. Here's what I've been quoted:
Cap Cost 51,200 (includes $1500 fleet discount)
$625/month (includes tax) *my calculations show the monthly payment should actually be $596.71/month (including tax)
$2340 due at signing - 1st month, DMV, bank fee, "processing fee"; which I think is ridiculous but, how much of these "fees" can I get taken off the table?
I'd also like to know if the residual and money factor I was quoted is correct.
Thanks in advance.

One additional question; dealer #1 claims I can get the money factor discounted from .00020 to .00010 if I do autopay (of course, his initial "offer" is horrible). Dealer #2 says that isn't possible, his numbers are posted above. Who do I believe?!
And additional "note" on my above post: Dealer #2 claims the $625/mo is what his "program" says. I've used leaseguide.com to run my number making deals on 2 other leases and never had any discrepencies...I just need some reassurance from the edmunds folks that this dealer obviously adding some numbers into his calculations!

I have an "autopay" discount as well, but I am not sure how they get to it (whether they use the MF or some other trick). AFAIK, they get a kickback from MB Financial to get you to signup for it.
#831 of 1561 Best time to lease a ML350
Oct 17, 2010 (6:28 pm)
In New Orleans..
Looking to lease a 2011 Mercedes ML350 with P1, rear entertainment system..
Is there a better time of the year to get a lease on these than others? I am able to a new lease starting today to April. Is October the best time to get a good deal on the lease, or does Mercedes traditionally have better programs in Nov, Dec, Jan, Feb, or Mar?
