#687 of 969 Re: Took delivery of a 2013 GS 350 F-sport today [beamer55]

The dealer is Park Place Lexus in Grapevine, Texas. That said, I was told the promos (conquest and lease cash) expired May 31 (should have been 6/3?).
On side note, I liked the F Sport's handling especially during cornering; it stayed on the ground with little body lean. But the car is also nosier and choppier than the GS 350 with Luxury pkg loaner I drove, especially on concrete pavement that is pervasive in my neighborhood. After driven it for one day, ~200 miles. I decided to switch, figuring I am not getting younger (I am 63); as much as I like the F Sport's capabilities and appearance, Luxury pkg would be more practical. Thus I asked Park Place what if I can switch to GS 350 Luxury. They offered to exchange to less MSRP/priced one for free if deal was made before 6/1, after which the 2500 cash lease incentive is no longer applicable. I picked a Fire Agate Pearl with Flaxen interior, Luxury Pkg, Park Assist, Blind Spot, preferred accessory, navigation, spoiler, free tint, MSRP 56993 (in contrast to the F Sport, which msrp was 57313) and did a even trade-in on 5/31. Picked it up on 6/1 and happy with my decision; as much as I miss the F Sport. Kyle, the internet sales manager, was very helpful.

Hi kbest1. Your post was just fine. Sometimes people reply to posts and sometimes they don't. I personally try to respond to every post that is personally addressed to me.
The buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 GS 350 with 15,000 miles per year are .00095 and 57% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tiers in most areas. This factor is enhanced to a better factor in certain areas, but I have not seen what it is specifically for Texas.

Jadcam, that's an amazing deal - how'd you get to those numbers? Mine are starting the convo at 520 plus 1800 down for a 27.. With 10k!
Also can you list the options you got from the window sticker that have a charge?
Thanks mate and congrats on the new car!

Can anyone else confirm if the June 2013 Money Factor for all GS350's (including the F-Sport) have changed from .00095 to .0005? Or does this vary by region? Am looking in Virginia.
#695 of 969 Leasing an AWD GS350

I'm looking to lease an AWD GS350 in CA. It seems like they're hard to come by because I've been having the hardest time finding one. Has any had a good experience leasing an AWD in CA? If so, would you mind sharing? Thanks.

Can you share dealer name and CA contact info?
I am in LA and would love to take advantage of the same deal.
