What kind of deal did you get for your Lexus LS?
#2 of 592 Price and Experience
Jul 31, 2003 (5:08 pm)
I purchased my 03 LS 430 UL in Oct 02. The car was equipped with the UL pkg, Chrome wheels, Wheel Locks, Trunk Mat and touch up kit. The price was $68,000.00.
I did all my shopping over the internet and final negotiations over the phone.
The dealer experience was excellent. No haggling, the quoted price was the actual price, sales personnel were polite and at delivery everything was explained. Follow up service has been exceptional.
I purchased the car at Reinhardt Lexus in Montgomery, Alabama.
Hope this is what you are looking for.

I noticed on lexusus.com that they are selling '04 LS430s (any exterior and interior colors) for $55,349 with Navigation system - Seems to be a pretty good price! Anyone with any experience buying from them?

I cant PROMISE you but if 5-7k off MSRP sounds good, let me know and I will ask the dealer if he can do the same for others.

niceputt, if you want to recommend a dealer, you can post the dealership's name (but no other info - see the header of this discussion). That way folks can do their own negotiating.
It's not really the purpose of these boards to facilitate deals, though. We're here to share prices paid and buying experiences, not assist in selling - that's contrary to the Membership Agreement.

Ur point is well taken. Still, I am 500 mile from a dealer I got a terrific deal from. I thought it presumptuous to put his name and the deatils on the net. Thanks.
#8 of 592 Two Great Dealers

I just did some negotiating between several local dealers for a 2004 LS 430 with modern luxury package, Euro suspension with alloy wheels, Briarwood pearl with cashmere interior.
I decided to go with Bob Casiulli on Route 46 in Little Falls, NJ. The next best price came from Lexus of Manhattan. They were both very, very close, but the deciding factor was the convenience of the NJ dealership.
Both were straightforward and a pleasure to deal with.

We bought our first Lexus from Bob Casiulli. They beat all prices.
Bob Casiulli and Manhattan Lexus were not even close when we just got the 2004 SC and LS. Got them from Prestige........for the record $4500.00 off list on both cars.

Actually did better off list than that with the 2004 LS. Worked up from dealer invoice, which many Lexus dealers are loathe to do.
Prestige e-mailed me 80 times with many duplicates after getting my on-line inquiry, but never responded to my e-mail stating the exact specs of the car I wanted and where I was on price at that time.
Got some kind of on line survey form and when I rated them badly someone actually called me. I told them I had already ordered the car.
One dealer, Warnock, never even quoted me a price. This after I visited the dealership twice, asked the salesman for a quote, called to remind him a week later that I was still waiting, called the sales manager to say I really wanted to buy from them but couldn't seem to get a price....not a word.
A couple of other dealers in NJ said $1,000 off list take it or leave it.
Crazy. The treatment at Bob Casiulli was also excellent. Would refer them anytime.
Maybe they were willing to discount so much because my car had to be ordered. Although all the other dealers knew that, too.
