    So thought I'd drop by and say hello.

    I did have an Audi RS3 on order, but after 11 months wait and several delays I sold my slot and took advantage of some unbelieveable leasing deals on the
    CLS 350 cdi.

    The only car left was in obsidian black, with black leather, heated front seats,6cd, ambient lighting, and R32 alloys.

    The car is being sourced through pantheon leasing, and being supplied by Exeter mercedes.

    After running a 6 cylinder BMW, and Audi I thought it was aout time I tried a merc :bannana:

    Really looking forward to receiving the car, and will post piccies indie course

    £399 plus vat per month, on a 3 + 11 term..

    So a years cheap motoring ithout any worries of depreciation

    Cheers Alex, I forgot you were running a merc.

    Hi Marc,

    Would of loved a white sport model like yours, but the deals were on the standard cls, but it's still a lot of car o the cash :thumb:

    I saw these advertised, is it a lease or a contract purchase? One thing that put me off was the cars I saw didn't have command.

    I know, there are some bizarre deals out there at the moment.

    Someone on the forum was saying that it was cheaper to lease a C63 than a C350 CDi Sport?

    Not sure exactly how they work these things out but it looks like you'll be getting the benefits.

    Sounds great! Is that a guaranteed future value so risk free? Out of interest what is the excess cost per mile over 10k (I do 18k PA) and is it definatley command and not Navigation 50? Can't believe I'll be paying a lot more for a C class!

    The link you gave was for the 3 year lease, it also says 'awaiting new terms for November'. Strange that the add lists both Navigation 50 and Command.

    COMAND multimedia system with media interface, radio/ CD/DVD/MP3, 7" screen, navi system, linguatronic voice control, 6GB, memory card slot

    Navigation 50 with media interface, 5.8" screen, radio/CD player and 4GB flash memory


    Not sure how you can have both!
