I was just at San Francisco MB looking at a 2009 G55. The residual after 36 month lease is 35%!

That's what I call OUCH and THREE QUARTERS. When I leased an Explorer back in 1996, the 36 mo res was 68%.

They said the pre-owned specialty car market (read AMG) has deteriorated and MB does not want to be left holding the bag on cars they can not flip.

Depreciation is my friend.

$99,500 SL500 for 14,900; still under $18k with all repairs done (by myself)

$55,000 E320 for $10,500; recent purchase, looks to need very little.

Keep Leasing!

With challenges (the economy), there are opportunities. Congratulations on your recent acquisitions. Now, if only someone will buy my Jaguar XJ V12 VDP Series III.

Still no prettier car on the planet.
I once owned a 1986 XJ6, yours looks of similar vintage.
For what they sell for, maybe you should add garage space...

Thanks. Unfortunately, garage space in downtown SF is not so cheap. My place is in the building directly behind the car. And while I have three spaces, I need room to move one of my other cars from the East coast to SF. Sadly, the XJ has to go.
