#2500 of 2764 First time leasing

Great information on this forum. I am interested in the RX AWD MSRP $46,780
I did not lease a car before and I am not sure how the math works yet. The LFS deal now is almost 4k down and $429/month for 27 month. I was thinking to negotiate my way out of this down payment and pay taxes, reg and fees out of pocket which will come out to about $1,750 ($700 bank fee + $339 doc fee) Do you think it would be possible? would you consider it to be a good deal?
Am i better off negotiating the price where I can probably get it for around 41k? what would be my payment then with 6% tax for 27 month 10k miles?
I read on other posts that the residual value is 68% money factor 00.00100 for the 27 month. Would it hurt if I decided to buy the car at the end of the lease?

#2503 of 2764 Deal---or no deal?

Offered (by dealer):
Turn in 2011 RX450h now (Dec. '12), 12 months early, no penalty, existing lease was $599/mo. w/15k miles per year, mileage is just now 30k.
Get 2013 RX450h, list $56k, offered at $53k (inclusive of $1,000 'Dealer Certificate' + $1,000 Lexus 'incentive', 1st mo. payment waived, taxes and fees at $3,006.50, 33 months, 12k miles per year, same $599/mo. payment.
Question (by me):
Is this the 'deal of deals' or can I push harder for a better deal? I was hoping for more off of list, or am I pushing it? Can make the deal Wednesday evening, if I want, but want to get a feel for the facts from here. Anyone?

which lexus dealer did you get that
was that a 24 month lease

For those of you in the NY Metro Area, this is the deal i was able to negotiate:
MSRP - $49,474
36 months/10,000 miles

Just leased my fourth RX here in Northern California...
Residual: 58% (36 months, 15k)
$1000 loyalty incentive
$1000 holiday certificates (wasn't expecting these)
1st payment covered
$0 drive-off, sign and drive
$543.23 a month (w/tax) (35 payments remaining)
I have seen lower negotiated prices, but I am pretty satisfied with the deal. It is $34 less a month than my previous 2010 RX350 (36 months, 12k miles), with nothing out of pocket and first month covered. They bought the 2010 RX350, for its payoff, which avoided any lease turn-in hassles.
Only thing that I was not happy about, was that a disposition fee of $350 was added, which I couldn't get them to remove. Apparently this is something new being required by LFS, started in January 2011 (first I am hearing of it). They did confirm through LFS that the fee is waived if you buy or lease another Lexus, or if the vehicle is purchased.
Thanks to Car_Man and those who have posted there deals, it helped me immensely.

Curious about your negotiated price, because it appears to be below invoice. This was before incentives were added? If so, what justification did you (and others who have also been negotiating) have for offering below invoice? Are there manufacturer to dealer incentives out there? How far below invoice do you suggest going? Thanks to anyone who has info.

If you look through the history in this thread, most people are getting around $5k off MSRP, in retrospect, perhaps it was the best deal I was gonna do. This was before incentives. As to how I did it, no clue, guess I got the right motivated non-stereotypical salesman. Plus I made it clear up front that I knew exactly what went into determining a lease price and that I had a good idea about what I expected to pay, based on info found on the internet.

MF and residual on 2013 RX350 are dead on! .00100 and 61% for 10k m/y With all incentives and rebate and all that, I was offered $580 with 0 down 1st month waived, tax included on MSRP 49750 Nav and HID, Is this a good deal? or I should haggle more?
