If you want alloy wheels, you need to go with the SE. Alloy wheels cost about $700 alone on the LE, so you might as well just pay the extra for an SE (price difference of around $700) and get the bigger wheels, fog lights, spoiler, paddle shifters, and heated mirrors.

I had thought about what you suggested since it makes sense to get more with the SE. The thing is I'm not too fond of the firmer ride in SE. That is from my research, I still have to test drive the SE to compare with the LE (coming of the current ES300 I like the ride of the LE).
can anyone chime in on their experience of the ride quality between the LE and SE?

I have had a Lexus ES 300, LE AND XLE Toyotas, we now have a 2012 and 2013 Camry SE, and the ride is not too much firmer, and still rides very well. I do not regret getting the SE's.....You will like it

When compared to the LE, SE has better seats, fog lights, real spoiler, alloy wheels just for extra $600. I test drove both LE and SE, I liked the ride of SE and bought the same. Its a subjective thing so the best option is to test drive yourself. Believe me, SE's stock seats are way better than that of the LE.

Thanks to voicemailking and tmx2001. yup, I will test drive the SE and the RAV4. I know I will have a hard time deciding b/t a camry and a RAV4. Wife likes the RAV4 better although we don't haul stuff or must have 4x4.

The Camry will last 200,000 miles with no problem. Can't say the same about the RAV4. The Camry will also have better resale value.

Thanks ziyulu. I agree with your statement about the camry based on my experience.
anyone know whether I should include the new grad rebate in negotiating OTD price or just wait until I see the finance guy and get it in at that time? it seems to me when dealers give quotes, prices with the grad rebate included are not as good as without after minusing the rebate myself. any one know? thx

Keep in mind that the grad or military rebate is only valid for financing. The reason prices with the rebate are not as good is because cash prices are always better than financing prices.
