I you finance through MBFS they'll waive the fee.


Should have signed with MBFS then refinanced..

Thanks, my dealer emailed me the order details. It is a good thing because there were a couple of omissions and deletions needed before the order is locked down in a few days.

My E400 is sitting at the port waiting to be released for shipment to the dealer. Any ideas or info as to when E400s will be released from port to dealers?
Thanks!

You can either have your dealer call to confirm or if you want to send me a PM with your state information I can call MBFS for you and find out.

I will say that banks look at PG loans/leases differently when considering additional credit to you. So I truly would not see it as something that would keep you from acquiring additional loans/leases/credit. Unless in your personal situation you have a large amount of debt.

Keep in mind that if your company grosses more than 3 million annually you can qualify for a business only lease/loan, meaning that you would not have to have a PG. You would just need to produce Tax Certified P&L's for three years to MBFS for consideration.

I hope this helps!
Ok great Thanks for the response.

My state is VA

Also would I be able to lease MB with Ally financial?

Not sure how to send a PM

You can lease with outside banks.... however the programs are usually no where near as good as MBFS.... we NEVER use outside banks.

Was successful in having lease end fee waived. Provided MBFS with purchase order number.
Received letter from MBFS that all end of lease obligations have been satisfied. Nothing due. And account closed. Now just have to wait for car to arrive.

Balloon Financing

Hope you are enjoying your first MERC! What are the available terms for balloon financing? Can it be used to buy at end of lease as well? Do dealerships have the ability to negotiate end of lease buyouts?

In Arizona we do not support balloon financing... so I wouldn’t be able to answer that question.

As far as lease end pricing, the short answer no. The manufacture does not discount the pricing with us to the best of my knowledge.

However I really never encourage the purchase of a lease. In my honest opinion not the best use of your money.

Mercedesfinance,

Thanks for your response re: Autopay.

What is the per mile charge to buy extra miles upfront during the lease signing? And after lease signing? $0.25 or $0.20? Thanks again.

I do not believe that Mercedes Benz does a "mid-term mileage adjustment" like other manufactures do.

I may be wrong.... Believe it or not I dont know it all! =) I will call MBFS tomorrow and get an answer. If it is different I will update here.

Here is my only advice to you. I think your deal looks great. My question to you would be the following...

The 10 Security deposits only reduce your MF by .00070 which is the equivalent to 1.68% without those your money factor should be 1.96%.

Now I would assume that if you have the cash to put down the extra security deposits that you most likely invest your cash. If you are returning more than 1.68% on those investments (Which if you are not you should fire your money guy) Then I would think it would be better for you overall to pay a higher payment and put only the fees down. I do not think that putting cash into a depreciating asset is the best thing you can do with your money.

The whole purpose of a lease is to mitigate any potential losses that you might have and only pay for the portion of the car that you use.

Honestly the only time that I see MSD leases as a good idea is when you are purchasing a car that only has Standard rates on it i.e. high end AMG cars. But again even then I usually try and talk people out of doing MSD leases because they are better with their money then MBFS would ever be.

So IMHO I would say skip the MSD lease. Just make the higher payment and invest your cash elsewhere.

Remember you are not investing in your future... You are buying a car!

Send me a PM with your number and I can call you and answer any other questions that you might have about what I am talking about above.

MF,

With the 10 MSDs and AutoPay I was told that the Money Factor is reduced to 0.00012 (=0.00092 - 0.00070 - 0.00010) or approximately 0.29%. We calculated that total payments were reduced by over $2000 (all in rent financing charges). So with the $5,000 (10 MSDs) I save $2000 over the term of the lease plus I get back the $5,000 at the end of the lease. I may be missing something(?). Please advise...thanks.

Monthly payments
- with MSDs = $399.99
- without MSDs = $459.37

The delta is $69 +/- per month over 36 months.

The MSDs are not CCR money but a refundable deposit. I am not sure I can get a 40% 3-year return on $5000 by investing it in the bank or another asset.

With MBFS you save .00007 per security deposit. If you are doing 10 security deposits then you are saving .00070 off the cost of money. When you convert that .00070 into an interest rate that means you are saving 1.68 % by putting down that cash. (.00070 X 2400= 1.68%)

So you lose the use of that money for 36 months only to save 1.68%. My argument was that you would most likely earn more than 1.68% on that money if you apply it somewhere else vs putting it into the lease and losing the use of that money for the term of the lease.

Just my $.02
Not trying to be disrespectful by telling you what to do with your money.
