#787 of 1426 Repost of lexusct's deal - without reference to sales person.
Jan 30, 2005 (8:17 am)
I am reposting lexuscts deal minus the reference to the salesperson dealt with. Referring to a specific sales person is against Edmund's policy and the Edmund's host will delete lexuscts message 786 if he/she sees the dealer reference. I'd prefer not to lose lexusct's data.
Negotiated a 3yr lease on a 2005 ES 330 with Navi and all options.
3 yr / 15,000 miles
Cap Cost $34,800
Money Factor 0.0014
Residual % / $: 54%/$20,773
Monthly Payment: $489 includes all taxes, fees, etc
"0" down payment and $1700 due at signing for 1st month and all other leasing related fees.
Very happy with this deal from Lexus of Westport in Connecticut. I did it all via fax and then went in to do the paper work.

Bought at Putnam Lexus. Redwood City, CA.
Wanted a Tier 3 ES330 2005 car - with ML Audio and Nav, and Auto. List is $39,089. Purchased with 2 minutes of discussion at $35,100. 89.8% of MSRP. About $400 over invoice - from what I could tell. The key to this is to get prices from internet managers from the 4 other South Bay/East bay dealers over the phone. I was very knowledgeable - giving him names and prices from other dealerships. I bet I could have gotten a better deal by a few hundred dollars - but I did not have the patience to hang around and argue with sales managers.

Would you be good enough to let me know when(date) you got your ES330. I spoke to Norwood, and they deny that they would ever have sold a car at that price. I'm looking for a 36mo lease, but the selling price does affect that too.

I'm trying to decide between the I35 and the ES330, and I've driven the I35, and its not a bad car. But what's the difference between the I35 and the ES330?
And what's the average transaction price on an ES330? Is it closer to MSRP or invoice?

My 2005 with 10 miles on it cost $32,000. Has all season 17 inch tires, HID with auto sensing wipers, heated/cooled seats, 6 disc CD changer, wood wheel/shifter, rear shade, cargo net and mats, wheel locks but no VSC.
You can also get the car with all of the above and VSC for same price. Shop around.

Thanks for the reply. Can you please tell me one more thing... how much of tax, title, tag, processing fee you paid on top of this? The tax (3.2%) is on top of Base price or price with all the options?

#795 of 1426 Made Deal Today
Feb 12, 2005 (1:24 pm)
I made a deal today for a 2005 ES330. It is loaded.
-Wood wheel and knob
-Heated and cooled seats
-HID headlamps w/ rain wipers
-6 disc changer
-preffered accessory package
-Also added xm sat radio
MSRP is 38904.00
Paid turn key 36k
This works out to be around 88.5% of MSRP before tax,tag, and fees
My local dealer would not work with me on price so I called a dealer 100 miles away and they worked out the deal I wanted. The local dealer was working with me but did not have the car I wanted. He said they would get the car from port in three weeks for me. I thought they would deal with me because they would be selling a car before they had it. The company I bought the car from dealt better with me and they are going to deliver the car to me on Monday. They just seemed to bend over backwards to make me happy.
The dealer I dealt with is Johnson Lexus in Raliegh NC
