I believe the bluetooth was added by the distributor (Southeast Toyota). We ordered the car with it, and it arrived that way to the dealer. It works great (of course, it requires that you have a bluetooth capable cell phone...). It accepts voice commands. It is located up above the rear view mirror. The only downside is that is takes up the space used in my 2002 Avalon for the sunglasses holder (which I use extensively).

#964 of 1539 Toyota Platinum Extended Warranty 7 Years/100,000 miles/zero deductible
May 12, 2006 (3:02 pm)
I have read message #862 about big discounts on this extended warranty plan and my question is whether this plan must be purchased either from the dealership that sells me the car or possibly from another nearby dealer where I could take the car for warranty service - or can we phone one of these dealerships around the country that are offering the extended warranty at a substantial discount, purchase the plan from them, and then have the warranty work done under this plan by my local dealership? Anyone know if that's possible? - and if it might require the prior written consent from my local dealer that it will honor this warranty if purchased from another dealership in some other part of the country? Thanks.

If I were you, I'd take that and RUNNNN with it. That's a good price in my opinion. Toyota's website shows the Avalon XLS starting at $31,225 before any options are even added. I went to the "Build and price your Avalon" link and added the options that the car has and it came to $33,793. Some dealers are flexible with their prices, but I think that's a very fair price. If you can beat em down some more, by all means do that, but if not, treat yourself to this car.

MSRP on XLS with that equipment is $33,987, invoice is $30,215 (including destination charge in both cases)
$30,700 is a decent price, but not rock-bottom for an end of year deal. You should be able to knock $400-500 off that if you bargain hard. Even if they sell the car at invoice they make 2-3% of MSRP on the deal (holdback). If it were me I would offer invoice and be ready to walk, unless the car is a hard to find color that you have your heart set on. There is still plenty of 06 inventory around.
Below $30K is not realistic though.
#970 of 1539 Best Price on 06 XL
May 22, 2006 (7:22 am)
Whats the best price anyone has paid in chicagoland, IN or WI for a base 06 XL Avalon, in Blizzard Pearl.
So far the best I have got is 24998 + Tax + Title + plates.
Also does paying cash help get the price down any ?
#971 of 1539 Special Order New Avalon
May 22, 2006 (1:27 pm)
I need to special order a new Avalon Limited due to the color and option combinations that I want. None exist (that I know of) in present inventory. Specifically, I want the built-in headrest DVD system with wireless headphones, along with a bunch of other options. There don't seem to be many on the market in the color and options that I want.
It looks like the going price right now is about invoice to about $1,000 above invoice for existing inventory. Do these numbers hold true for special orders, or can I expect to pay more than invoice to invoice plus about $1,000 for a special order model?
I would like to order one this week. I'm in no hurry and expect to wait several months for the exact model equipped like I want to be built.
