First off, a huge thanks to you all for getting me to a solid level of understanding with leases. In my specific instance, I knew more about lease math than my sales advisor.
My wife and I just had a baby a few months ago and I wanted to use the pull-in via MBFS on my c43 to get something more family friendly. Always been a massive fan of the E-class wagons (especially the E63). I realize this forum is “choose the deal, not the car,” but hoping I was able to blend the two together as best as possible. I really wanted the digital cluster gauge and there was only one car that had it in the area.
I confirmed numbers with dealer ahead of coming in, but they still tried to sneak in an inflated MF during signing anyway. Finally got them back to the base, and added 7 MSDs. Again, this forum and the calculator was hugely helpful here – I was able to spot the inflated MF thanks to the calculator.
