I never had any luck with brokers in the past. They were aways more expensive.
I currently have a 36 month lease that expires in 90 days on my 2007 4Runner. I'll be searching the same dealerships as you in Denver. I was afraid they would change the body this year and get greedy and here we go. Seems every time Toyota makes a change, they quit dealing on the new model because they think the demand will have us all fighting over it. Looks like there's no money factor incentives at all.
You should still be able to get a 36 month 12k/yr SR5 V6 4WD 34K MSRP, 31K negotiated buy, no money down, 57% residual, .0025 money factor deal for 450/mo before tax which is about $30/mo in Denver.
What store in town had the ES Lexus? They sound motivated.

If I could get a deal the way you set it - or even a little more - I'd be all over it. Unfortunately no dealer on the front range has, can or will come close. I haven't gotten any quotes under $560... though I've only been making that attempt online (which in the past, I've had great success doing). Go Arapahoe thought I was on drugs when I told them the $560 number from a northern dealer - theirs was $706.00
Luckily I have some time before my current lease expires in July... hopefully I'll be able to negotiate better lease terms then or find a Toyota store elsewhere in the country that will do better.
If you do get into a new 4Runner - it'd be great if you posted your final numbers on here. Good luck - thanks!

Which dealer gave you this great deal? I have been shopping in the DC area and no dealer has even been willing to go below MSRP

That's interesting that Go Toyota was the highest as I leased my 2007 there 3 years ago and they were the cheapest. Where was the Lexus ES deal?

That would be Green Bay WI. I was totally set with what I thought I should pay for this vehicle through my (insurance company quote) and this dealer came in well below what I was going to ask. So I kept my mouth shut and signed the contract. I hope to get in the next few weeks. Apparently they outsell the three nearest toyota dealers compbined. I can see why with how honest they treat you.

toymath - it was Stevinson. I remember when we bought our current Lexus a couple of years ago... our sales person was out on a medical leave, I ended up talking to the Sales Manager (or whatever he's called)... and he said, "this is the price - you won't get it any cheaper anywhere else" he was right. It should always be that simple.

I am going in tomorrow to try and buy a 2010 TE model. List price is $36,700 and edmunds shows invoice as $33,300( I think the dealer added $200 in mats on top of this price). My question is, how accurate is edmunds invoice pricing? My goal is to make the deal by offering them $34K or about $500 above invoice. Does this sound fair?
Any thoughts or others experience? The particular dealer has 3 TE in stock so its not like they are rare here:)

I think your goal is fair... the reality though is supply verses demand. This early into the vehicle release you may experience issues trying to get that price. Personally, I'd be getting prices from at least three dealers via the internet. Then go from there and physically go to a dealer. I've purchased my last five vehicles this way - with great success and limited the drama/crap at dealerships. If you sent out price quote requests (using Edmunds) today (including your exact option needs)... you would probably get quotes back yet today.

Thank you, I never thought about using edmunds to send out price requests. I will do that right now. The reason I am mainly focusing on one dealer is that we have bought from the sales manager there for over 20 years and he usually is the cheapest, plus its the only dealer with a TE:)

I am buying a 2010 4 runner trail model, and want o purchase brush guards front and rear for her.
Does any person know where to find that item?
Also, I want to be able to park her in New York City, so brusg guards / bumper guards are very important.
The front of the new 4 runner is plastic. - One good bump on the street without bumper guards means $2000 damage.
