The calculator shows refundable MSD is 6500 but contract says 7000. Not sure why…

I feel like I can push for even more, but didn’t pursue in the end.

So you aren’t interested in the e300 anymore?

I meant I feel like i can push for a monthly lower than $542(pretax), but didn’t ask for a lower. I leased with 542pretax in the end

So did you sign the deal? Some of the numbers don’t make sense.

I did. What number doesn’t make sense?

Doc fee can’t be $0 in CA. Never seen a MB dealer not mark up the acq fee by $300 and if the buyrate MF was .00026, there’s no point in putting down 10 MSDs.

I didn’t open the calculator during that time… yeah. I went home and played the calculator it seems 4 MSD will give me 0.00001 MF as well. Below the photo i took for the lease, I was surprised with the doc fee as well?

I just looked at the final contract. The doc processing fee is $85 but the acq fee is $595. I guess they played around the numbers since I asked $590/mo from their offer $615

Contract might get kicked back by MBFS then since the acq fee can’t be that low. CA state law also says max doc fee is $80. If it is kicked back, tell the dealer to correct the MSD amount.

Sure. I will do that if it gets kicked back. Except the MSDs, is this $595 deal good enough?

Probably average for a 2018. Honestly, I’d rather get a loaner for much cheaper.

Yeah… I feel so. Unfortunately they don’t have any loaner left so…
