The SE does look good in black, but you have to keep it clean. It's true that every car looks best when clean, but black is binary: it looks great or it looks filthy.
White is excellent at hiding dirt, but white is not for everyone. If you get the SE in white have the windows tinted for contrast.
Red looks good if you don't mind the attention. Silver is safe and timeless. Gray is good if you want be be stealthy.

Go to LA Times car dealers classified section. Click on the OC dealers. You will see it.

It's not there - I see an ad from Power Toyota. Does anybody have a saved screenshot? Is the 19500 price on the LE after college grad incentive?
Thanks for your help coches1. Appreciate it.

Vouch for Robert Householder Toyota of Orange. Made an appointment and in and out with a new Camry within 2 hours. No negotiation whatsoever. He honored the ad price of $19995 for LE w/ power seats. Additional $1000 college grad discount made the OTD price just under 21K.

What a great success story. This is a great value for a 2012 LE. When I called
he gave me the same price of 20K. The great news is the price on the phone is the amount you pay when you are at the dealership.
Many forum members have complained about other dealers promising one amount and changing it when you are physically at the dealership. Another interesting characteristic is Longo-the biggest Toyota Dealer is not even close to 20K for a LE.
It is refreshing to hear about the fleet manager Robert at Orange Toyota delivering what he promises.
I am waiting for the Rebate from Toyota or Edmunds. Lets see what happens.
Whats your first name rhung. When I buy my LE we can tell him the edmunds forum helped direct a sale to his dealership.

Richard is my name
Please let him know I said hi. He's a really nice guy. I left a positive yelp review for him as well.
Thank you coches; I'm glad I saw your posts here. Otherwise, I would have probably bit at a price that was $500-$1000 more.
I emailed 20-25 so cal dealers and not one was willing to beat a price of $20,500 + TTL for a LE. And Mr. Householder kept is deal at $19995. Amazing. I think I took the last silver on the lot though, with power seats.
Good luck with the wait! Loving the car

Regarding car colors...I was told that light colors such as silver or white had the best resell value.

Don't know about the SE Limited Edition but recently bought the SE base (no power seats, etc). Power seats would have been nice but not a must have. Did not want Navigation, Sunroof, etc.
The upgrades from the LE are nice. Interior has nicer look than LE and I like some of the other extras of the SE. Fog lights are not just for fog...can come in handy when driving in mountains, etc.
Bought in No. California (Bay Area) for 20,998 plus tax, lic, and doc fee.
The So Cal deals looked better but location was not practical.
Also got the 0.9% financing. Bought at Vallejo Toyota after telling them what prices I had found elsewhere.

I am planning to buy a Camry LE. I am in IL, the dealer tell me the price to be $21200 with mat and power seat. It seems it is much more expensive than yours. I am not sure how much should I bargain. If I say $20500, will I be kicked out the dealer shop?

I had legit local offer (CA) of 20,988 for Camry LE with power seats and mat so you should be able to negotiate downward a bit. Saw even better offers outside of local area.
Also you should see if there are any special Toyota rebate offers in November...
