Sorry about my mistake. I meant invoice of $46,162 destination included. $48,000 is for the options I listed in my original post. It doesn't include the entertainment package.
You can find out about the price drop of the 3rd row seat option in the 2008 model on line by googling for "2008 GX 470". Many web sites have the same information apparently released by Lexus. Here is an excerpt from automotive.com:
"The 2008 GX 470 will carry a base MSRP of $46,815, an increase of $180, or 0.4 percent. Additionally, the price of the popular Third Row Seat with Rear Air Conditioner option significantly reduced by $1,545 and will now be offered at $485."

They phone quoted MSRP $53536, Purchase $47875. This included Nav, 3rd seat, spoiler, preferred accessory, and exhaust tips.
I'm looking at a 60 month 12k lease. Fleetrates mentioned US Bank has the best MF .00226 for this lease. Additional fees of $30 year to join the group and shipping to Austin from Ca should run about $700.
Looks like a pretty good deal, anyone seeing anything better?

Dealer is HOSING YOU! Holdback is something paid to the dealer from the manufacturer, and financial reserve is also paid to the dealer............tell that dealer to jump in the lake.

#930 of 1157 2004 GX470 Pricing in Southern California
Aug 18, 2007 (9:26 pm)
I've been looking for a good deal on an 04 or 05 and found my ideal configuration, a 2004 with ML/Navigation and Tow Package, 36k miles, and it's a CPO at Lexus of Westminster. Asking price is $38k. NADA and Kelly Bluebook show approximately the same values, $38k for clean retail and $40k-41k for CPO. Can anyone chime in with what they think a good deal would be? Prices seem to be all over the place in SoCal. Lowest I've seen was $34k for roughly the same mileage all the way up to $42k, which is ridiculous considering you can get a new one at carsdirect for $45.2k. As the 08's are due out any time it would seem there's quite a bit of room for negotiation?

I gave up on new car. Dealer in Texas were hard to deal with pricing.
Found '05 with 45K miles, fully loaded including tow ball. Asking prices was ~38600.00. closed the deal with 35500.00
Enjoying the smooth ride.

Thanks for the info rbande. Sounds like you did great as you got an 05, maybe they were willing to really deal since the miles were a little high? Did you have a predetermined target for offer acceptance or did the dealer low ball asking price off the bat?
