That is at or near the invoice price. Good deal. Now that you've negotiated a good price, don't let them take advantage with your financing and trade (if you have one).

Thanks- they just dropped another $500 as I'm speaking with two dealers so it's $39K flat now.
Can you please let me know what you mean by taking advantage on finance? I have good credit so should qualify for the best APR possible- what should a good target be?
No trade-in... Thanks!

After one test drive and 6 emails I have an offer of $3k off MSRP (Atlanta, GA) of $42,998 for an IS250 F sport with nav. 1st runner up was $2,250 off MSRP for an identical car. I think I might do a little better at the end of December but will most likely buy now.

In the finance office that's were they pitch the "back end products' such as extended warranty, LoJack, prepaid Maints. Gap insurance, Car Care ect. In most cases you can go back and forth on the price first price they present to you. Personally, I like the warranty if I was buying a German car but in this case Lexus is very dependable brand so I'll pass. 100% of the time if the dealer offer a prepaid maintenance plan I will take it because after doing the math it simply make sense. Also keep in mind there is not much to negotiate on the prepaid maintenance. Other then that all the other product has no value to me.
