Thanks for your reply. Did you get the special financing. I am trying to understand the trend. Is it that due to the special financing offerend now the prices are higher. If one has to pay higher than the invoice for the 2008 model, I may just wait for the 2009 model.
#1569 of 2890 Doc and Bank Fees?
Sep 01, 2008 (4:35 am)
I have agreed to a price of $36,928 for PP with Nav. However, the dealer is now telling me there are fees of : $695.00 bank fee; $259.00 doc fee; $5.00 tittle fee; and 118.50 registration fee. I think their 'bank fee' is pure profit for the dealership, correct? Lexus gets 100% of the doc fee, right? Thanks for any help you can provide...

Lexus Financial gets the bank fee (aka acquisition fee). I'm not sure of what the base fee is, but, it's at least $595, so if there is any markup there, it's minimal..
The $259 doc fee goes to the dealership... consider it profit..

It seems that you are using the special Lexus financing. So what happens after 2 Sept and you have your own financing, does the 695$ get shaved off.
If you crunch the numbers to get the 2.9% you have pay 695$ extra so in effect it is not 2.9% apr but more.

Want to share my experience and thank all that helped me in the journey.
Bought the ES 350 premium plus with Navi
Price is 37657 + Tax 2259 (6%) + Tags 182 = OTD 40100
Tried very hard to get it for a lesser amount almost with 8 dealers but this was the best deal.

Thats a great deal almost 1350 less than mine. Did you use the Lexus special financing? And was your buy recent. My total license fees were 180$. I have noticed some dealers price the car less but make it up with hefty fees.

Thank you for posting this valuable buying info on Lexus ES350. I am in the market for ES350 with Nav package. I wonder if you could share with me which sales person you worked with to get the same great deal you got from the Park Place in plano?
