Please e-mail me and I will give you the name of the Sales guy I went through at Sewell Dallas, he may give you a much better deal than that. It’s always good to have at least two dealers to deal with to get the price down.
I absolutely LOVE this car. I now have 12k miles and have not had to go back to the dealer for any problems.
Price I paid for ES 350 Lexus in Dallas
Bought on 07-28-2007
I paid $34,500.00 for my ES 350 at Sewell Lexus Dallas. The only thing it did not have is Navigation, High Intensity Headlamps, Mark Levinson Audio, Park Assist, Panoramic Sun Roof and Chrome Wheels.
Sewell wanted $1,700 for Chrome wheels; I got the same wheels for $750 shipped to my door from L.A. Wheel and Tire.
My experience with Sewell was absolutely wonderful; I did all my negotiating by e-mail with both Park Place Lexus Grapevine and Sewell Lexus of Dallas. Park Place also offered me the same price of $34,500.00 but did not include Window tint, Hand painted pin stripes and All weather floor mats. Park Place did include the plastic stone chip hood protector though, Sewell did not.
E-mail me if you want the sales managers name, he was fantastic, it only took one hour to sign all paper work and purchase the car. My interest rate with Lexus was 5.99%.
Things I don’t like about the car so far: Engineer who designed interior lights should be fired (Cannot see a thing, very dim), driver side Ventilated front seat works better than passenger side, ceiling is a little low, not much head room (I am only 5’-10”). Other than that I love the car, my previous car was a 2000 E320 Mercedes.
Package I – “Premium” - $38,157
- Premium leather trim interior with real wood accents
- Heated and Ventilated front seats
- Driver memory: Seat, Steering Wheel, Outside Mirrors
- Power Tilt and Telescoping Steering Wheel
- Bluetooth Compatibility
- 6 Disc, Single feed in dash CD player in the console
- Rain-sensing Wipers
- Driver Seat Extender
- Carpet Cargo Mat
- Wheel Locks
- Power Rear Sun Shade
- Body Side Moldings
- Smart Key
They also threw in the following:
- Window Tint
- Rear Spoiler
- Hand Painted Pin Stripes
- All Weather Floor Mats
Total list price of car was $39,100.00……….I only paid $34,500.00.
Sale Price - $34,500.00
Sales Tax - $2,156.25
Dealer's Inv. Tax - $80.07
Documentary Fee - $50.00
Deputy Fee - $5.00
License, Trans, Title - $103.80
Inspection - $23.75
Sub-Total - $36,918.87
Good Luck, John

P.S. I followed this web-sight in buying a car and it absolutely works: How to save money buying a new car in 5 quick steps.
The key is to get an internet quote from the Dealer through Kelly Blue book or Nada.com, this will cut out the middle man (the salesman) and you will save by not paying commission to the salesman. Internet price will always be far less than walking through the door and getting a price.

I sold my TL (current model) to get the ES350. My wife and I both hated it, too stiff, noisy, maybe good for a 20 something kid. They are dumping the TL's as the new design comes out this fall.

I just picked up my LEXUS from LEXUS OF EDISON. The sales person that helped me out sits all the way to the right when you go in to the dealership. To make it more simple, he is asian kid without glasses. I bought mine at very good price and he told me any referrel would get the same either on lease and purchase. Please make sure you tell him J J sent you from New Brunswick~~~ I hope this info helps for people in tristate area. good luck guys

Sewell emailed me a good deal. I e-mailed them through their website or through Lexus website (don't remember) and they responded quickly. Try them.

I'm shopping for a 2008 Lexus ES350. I was wondering if you can let me know your point of contact (with phone #) with the 4 SoCal dealers who will sell $1k below invoice. You can email me at cal00friendyahoo.com. Thank you!

Correction: my email address is cali00friendyahoo.com (sorry for the typo). If you could, please let me know who the salesperson/manager is that can offer the $1,000 below invoice. I'm interested in buying a Lexus ES350 too. Thank you.

Quote from Dallas.
$41,000 out the door for ES350 w/factory loaded Premium Pluse Package. Is this a good deal in DFW?

I may be missing something that you are getting that I am not, but I THINK I am paying 37,935 for the same car and was offered even a tiny bit lower from Sewell in Dallas. I just want to tell you this just in case.
#1478 of 2855 Bought a TL Re: Price paid in Houston [beezer86]
Jun 28, 2008 (4:43 pm)
Just bought a silver Acura TL base for $30600 OTD (06-28). The price+destination is $28560, the rest is TTL + misc.
It is stiff, but not much noisy to me. The dring is OK - a bit sporty, not as smooth as I thought.
B4 I went to the Champion's, I called Clear Lake Lexus for a quote of 2008 Lexus ES350. I mentioned that people getting around 34k OTD, the salesman said it is impossible for them to offer the price... Just don't understand the Houston Lexus dealers, looks they are not affected by the national sale slump, so no discounting.
