Not Texas but I picked up a '14 E350 in Columbia Missouri for $560/mo. Taxes and maintenance included. 1st month due at signing. MSRP was around $62,500. I received over $10k off.
I believe the residual was around 70% and the money factor was .00148

Invaluable forum when researching a new vehicle. Thanks to those who share their experiences.
I closed this deal over the weekend in the Bay Area. A little high on cap cost reduction and I can't seem to locate the final MF, but overall I'm absolutely thrilled with the deal:
2014 E350 sedan w/ sport package, P1, keyless go, parking assist and drivers assist.
Gross cap cost $52,795
Cap cost reduction $2,200
27 month least 27k miles - $3,400 out the door, $499 / month including tax.

I am wondering if anyone has the December numbers for a 27 month lease of an E350 4Matic with 10,000 miles per year.

#3246 of 3250 Left Over 2013 E350 BlueTEC
Dec 08, 2013 (1:16 am)
I am in the market for a 2013 leftover e350 sedan BlueTEC. One dealer whop has none stated I should get $12K off MSRP as the lease opportunities in the '13's end at the end of the month.
Anyone have how large a discount I can expect on the model. I'll end up leasing, but I negotiate on the selling price. I am in So CA.
Thank you in advance.

I have been looking at the same car, but in the north east. The best I've been able to do is 47,900 selling price for a 58,265 MSRP 2013 Bluetec. To be honest, I didn't pull the trigger because I don't think it's that great. People are seeing $10K off MSRP for the new 2014 E350 gas cars so I feel the older body style should be even more of a discount. Also, the residual and money factor for 2013's are not that attractive relative to the 2014 so the leas isn't really too much cheaper than just getting a 2014.

Keep in mind that the 2013 BueTec is very different than the 2014 BlueTec because they changed the engine.
I just (reluctantly) turned in a leased 2011 BluTec because the residual was far too high to consider purchase. I leased a gas 2014 because the new diesel just doesn't have the same feel, sound, etc....and because there was no high residual on the 2014 diesel. In 2011, the residual for a 24 mo lease was about 76%....today's diesel has a residual of 68%, the same as the gas models (12K/24-27mos). Additionally, I don't think the 2014 diesels have the promotional mf being offered on the gas e350s.

MB/car mfg push cars which they have tons in their inventory. NOT on the left overs. this is especially true on leasing, both in truck money and money factor.
13s are good to buy, not lease. dealers are doing great deals on 14s becasue they have money from Germany to push the sales. leasing on 13 is kind of like leasing an used car, the low residual, plus high MF will push the pmt way high

I was also looking at the 2014 e250 BT. Seems that the dealers are not pushing it. I had to find the product on the web, after visiting 3 MB dealers - no one mentioned it after saying I want a BT vehicle.
After driving the e250, I was not that impressed as my 2012 ML 350 seems a better drive.
Now looking at the e350 2014 gas wagon - shame they do not make that in a BT.
Seems that the 4 dealers that I found out have 3 or more 2013 e350 BT are not to willing to make an easy deal.
I was told 12K - $14K should be taken off MSRP to make up for the New Year coming up in a few weeks.
