In no particular order

1. For sale threads are not editable by the poster. If you need a change made, please contact a moderator.
2, Thread should include price, pictures, contact info like email address. Try to not post a phone number.
3. If you have less than 15 posts, you won't be able to reply by pm as newbies won't be able to pm the seller either since they also probably have less than the required 15 posts to do so.
4. Why are threads uneditable? In case of a dispute, the seller cannot go back and say something was X when it was Y, because the seller changed it in his favor.

For whoever may be considering:

1) At the start of the lease, you guaranteed the value of the car at lease end (lease end value --ie: you can buy it/guarantee it's value for/is $XX,XXX)

or)

2) At the beginning of the lease, you did not guarantee the end value of the car and you can just walk (milage penalty if applicable). If MB wants to sell you the car (and you want to buy it), MB will sell it to you at a price THEY determine (or that you may be able to dicker down).

You have no obligation re: the value of the car at this point (other than any damages--security deposit will come into play).

It sounds like it is #2 as there is a mileage clause in your comments.

FYI

Thanks for the input. My lease contract does have a lease end buyout price. I will have to check exact amount on my contract when I get to it. I'm not sure if it is a difference between leasing country to country. We generally have a mileage limit that the bank uses to inform a residual value that directly affects the monthly lease payment calculations. In this case at the end of the lease you can either choose to buyout the car for the price listed in original contract, or walk away from car and pay mileage overage fees if applicable.

Exactly. The "new" lessee would need to be aware of that buyout, especially if their intention is to buy it at lease end. :tu:

One other point (which is VERY important for you): you need to ensure that MB Leasing will remove your name from the contract if you find someone to take over the lease. They may but it's not automatic.

If they won't and the other guy defaults, they're gonna come back to you for outstanding and future payments, regardless of whether you have the car or not.
