Since the new year I’ve been deal searching for a relatively hard car to find, 2021 Mercedes Benz C300 4Matic Cabriolet (Convertible). A few interesting ones have crossed my path in NY and NJ but most are oddly built.
After surfing the leasehackr forum I haven’t had much luck seeing members/brokers posts on deals also haven’t seen many MB incentives (dealer/manufacturer/loyalty).
Knowing MB is notorious for not generous leases I’m seeking advice. Primarily looking for current/past experience negotiating a MB Convertible and where the community has seen success on negotiating % off MSRP and any other factors.
For reference, car will be registered in NY.
According to Edmunds Forum:
RF: 52% residual
No lease incentives
That’s basically what I was getting at. The lease programs here may be so painful that the size of the boulder you’re pushing up a hill is just too big. If a really aggressive discount doesn’t get you there, it probably isn’t worth the effort of trying to figure out what the “real” target discount amount should be.
the verts seem like they generally are poor lease candidates. My guess is they make them in low enough volume that they don’t really need to incentivize them to get enough out the door. I wouldn’t hold my breath.
