You are looking about $1,100to $1,400 over the invoice price. the price that you want should be no more than $39,300 out the door. I got my 2005 RX 330 with all the feature that you included + Navigation ($2000 more) for 41,200 out the door, which is about $200+ over the invoice.
- 2000 navigation
39,200 is the price that you want
you will get a better deal from the lexus dealer Inter Net Sale Team than the Floor Sale Team.

Missgene: I bought same vehicle you describe at Mission Viejo Lexus in early Oct 04 for $36140. Did not include tx, ttl.
Subtract CA tx and ttl from your quote and you will see how close the price is to my purchase price.

Thank you Buckeye1 for getting back to me.
We are on the same page.
When I price it out at invoice with options it comes to approx. $35,224.

Edmunds TMV says I should look to pay around 1K under MSRP with is a ton over Invoice. What is a fair Deal over Invoice/under MSRP?
#1632 of 3130 Price Paid
Nov 23, 2004 (4:29 pm)
Just purchased a '05 RX330 yesterday. Think I received a fair price (I am a 2nd time buyer at the Lexus dealership). I paid $39,963 ($300 over invoice) for the following:
Premium Plus Package (PT)
Navigation System w/ Rear Camera (NV)
Heated Front Seats (HH)
6-Disc In-Dash CD Changer (DC)
Towing Package (TO)
18" Alloy Wheels (FT)
Cargo Mat (C1)
Wheel Locks (WL)
Additionally, I am leasing the car for 48 months with a .00210 money factor and 49% residual, no money down (except license, fees, and 1st month).

It would be helpful to know more of your details, such as the number of payments, the money factor, etc.
Look at post #1632. He seems to have gotten a good deal. My guess is that he's paying a shade over $450. Anyway, if you are already in a lease, enjoy the car and try not to second guess yourself unless something can be done about it.

galyt great deal in my book, enjoy the ride. Also could you post the name of the dealership, city and state for reference. Glen

We got the same package as calyt except FWD rather than AWD, about a month ago, for $100 over invoice in Dallas. We were surprised at how much they were willing to deal - more so than on the 2004's a month earlier.
