That's similiar to the deal I got yesterday at a Benz store in White Plains, NY. The same exact M.S.R.P. but it is silver with black interior. 24 month lease with 10,000 miles per year.
$577 per month with tax included
$1,846.00 due signing.
The selling price was $61,540.00 and they told me the winter event was the same at conquest as well. They wanted to charge $1,095 for the bank fee and after speaking to the Manager I got it for the published rate of $795.

Nice, you beat me by a good amount, I thought I had them pretty skinny on the deal as is, left some on the table it seems.

I think I still beat insiderbuy by the discounted dollar amount ($12,000 vs $11,850) on my purchase of a fully loaded 2012 GL450 on Nov 25th at a orange county, CA dealership.
MSRP = $79,030 , Negotiated selling price = $67,030
Payment is $844/mo with 20k (down+others) on a 1.9% for 66mo finance.
Big difference is, I will be owner of my dream car after 5.5yrs vs returning the leased car only after 2yrs.

I went to White Plains and asked about those numbers and they told me those don't seem realistic. Did you have an in?

Croatbag - these numbers are realistic and you can do the same in many other places, assuming they have the car in. Check Princeton MB if you want as well.

I believe you all, I'm just telling you the White Plains dealer told me that was unrealistic, so he was willing to deal again that low I guess, not sure what to say.
I spoke to princeton and greenwich and 60K on an MSRP of 70740 (or equivalent discount for a higher MSRP) was as good as I could get.

With those numbers, your payment is around $600 with NYC tax in. Isn't that what you wanted?

Question to those who got on this; $600 or so per month inc tax seems like a great deal - was there any special discount involved? I also called White Plains but did not get anywhere close. I am looking for a similar GL 450 ; do not drive an MB or any of the other luxury brands at the moment. Croatbag; maybe we should team up and see if we get additional discounts if we buy at the same time!

No, the original message was for a car with a almost 74K MSRP. The previous post responded and said he got a car for that same MSRP for 560-570. I was just saying I used 70,740 as the MSRP for my negotiation starting point since that seemed like a standard MSRP that all dealers had in stock so I could compare apples to apples. Then whatever discount they applied to that, say X% off MSRP or X below invoice, could be applied to whatever MSRP car I eventually chose.

I am picking up tomorrow so too late for the group discounts, but here are the dealerships that were willing to go to 60K on a 70,740 MSRP vehicle. Greenwich is close to White Plains you can try them. If you are willing to take a decent drive you can try Princeton, Euro Motors, or Fort Washington was also fairly close, maybe $10/month more.
I was not able to get anyone to get under $600 for a car with a $73,990 MSRP as the price as insidecarbuyer said he was able to.
