In before “fully loaded”

What’s RV/MF for their pre owned program? Seems like demo C300’s are cheaper.

Assuming you just need to follow the standard calculations, and look at the MSRP they are basing the lease off of, and what is the market price of the vehicle to determine if your sell price is good… Also make sure they are not discounting your sales, but then padding the money elsewhere. imo $400 sounds high for a loaner lease thats sub $40K

This isn’t a demo, it’s CPO. I’m curious what the terms are, I’m assuming they are much worse than demo.

Its is mix of both apparently :slight_smile:

Regardless, it was farted in MANY times.

with 2k down, he is ready to reduce monthly price to $350.
Should i go for it not ?
Sorry, i am pretty new to the lease market, so don’t have much idea how to evaluate this deal.
Suggestions welcome

It’s great that you listed every option but I’m not going to figure out the msrp by hand, fyi

He just shared Sale Price and not MSRP.
How to find MSRP of a CPO car ?

Well it’s a loaner, it has an msrp, I could ask for the residual and work backwards but this post is starting to hurt my head, like many others

Did you know it had a window grid antenna?

Man, you are on a serious mission. Lately you have littered the LH forum with terrible jokes.
