#368 of 3130 deal made on 10/12/03 in Santa Monica, CA

Just to give some additional information for people on this board. I purchased a 2004 rx 330 in white/ivory leather, 2WD, No navigation with the premium plus package for total of $36,278 plus tax and registration. Car was purchased from Lexus of Santa Monica through their internet/fleet manager. Deal was agreed over the phone, they prepared paperwork and deal took all of 30 minutes to complete. Other than inquiring if I'd be interesed in Lojack or an extended warranty they didn't push any other options or services. All in all the smoothest car purchase I've ever made.

Alex: Unless things have changed recently for CA and AZ dealers, I'm fairly certain the MSRP for rcn1966's purchase was $39413; or maybe $39463 if the Destination Charge has increased by $50 in recent weeks. (I did extensive research back in June regarding RX330 model and option packages available to AZ, NV, and CA dealers.)
$3K off MSRP for a 2WD Premium Plus should not be a problem within the L.A. area. Due to fortunate circumstances, I was able to get $3K off sticker way back on June 30th. I purchased mine from Crown Lexus' internet department, but Longo Lexus also was offering big discounts. I was impressed with both dealers' internet departments. Both were willing to pick us up from our hotel in San Diego while we were vacationing. I was very pleased with Laura at Crown.

You can use edmunds.com or kbb.com to get an idea as to the current "fair" price in your zipcode area. This number is a good benchmark for negotiating.

Oops. Sorry. Is that a new policy? Seems like we frequently posted first names of sales personnel 2-3 years ago, but maybe I'm dazed and confused...??
