Hello everyone. I got an e-mail from the salesman at Grapevine lexus yesterday. The 2008 ES 350 in Truffle Mica is being sold for 36,494 + TTL. The MSRP is 43,075. It is brand new and not a demo. I thought it was a good deal and have not made an counter offer yet. Any thoughts on this deal? Please let me know. It is not my favorite color but I think it may be too much of a good deal to pass up.....

Hi Nalini, I got quoted at $34,700 + TTL at the end of the year for a brand new 2009 ES350 with the Navigation package and then at $35,741 + TTL in January. So I think you still have some room to bargain.

Wow that is a great price... Was that at a dealership in Texas? If so which one?
Thanks for the reply

Really great price. When i was there the last week in December they had 3-4 in Mica left for 2008. I think it is a harder color to sell becuase that was the only color they had. Color not bad but not my first choice either. Money is great, if you like color then go for it!

Is this car a Pebble Beach Edition? I was looking at Sewell and they have the Pebble with a MSRP of $43705, but I have him down to $36900 + TTL. It is a 08 in Truffle Mica. I think the Pebble is the only one with that color. Great car. I am going to Grapevine to check them out tommorow.

This was in the Bay Area, California. I think that $36K is a good price for the Pebble Beach.
#1825 of 2890 Where are the 08 ESs in the Bay Area?
Jan 12, 2009 (6:05 am)
other than calling each Lexus dealer, is there another way to determine inventory of 08 ESs?
I was quoted $36K for a Levinson ($34K for just Nav) a few weeks ago, and expect that the recent $4K Lexus is contributing to dealers to move the 08 ESs will make dealers more aggressive.
Just need to know who has the inventory, and what they have.....
thanks for any suggestions.

I would suggest looking at their websites. Oakland was the one that offered me the $34K deal, Santa Rosa offered the $35K in January for an 09. Santa Rosa had a Pebble Beach edition for 08 and the Lexus in Redwood City (Putnam) had an 08 with Mark Levinson but I didn't want to spend an extra $2K - $3K for these features since they don't appeal to me.
Check out their website for Team Members's phone numbers so you can call them directly when you find the car you want.

AMEN on any site that would carry current inventorys on '08's.
Used one for Corvette and found what I wanted.
Currently have an '05 ES which is my wifes car and she loves it. She is gonzo over the Royal Ruby Red color and does not like the '09 Red. Understand, if she could get an '09 for less than a Ruby Red '08, she would jump at the '08.
Would love to be able to search a site that carried '08 inventories.
Two of my last three Vettes were a fly out/drive back and would not mind doing the same for an '08 ES....in the right color you understand.

Hello. Yes that is the 2008 pebble beach edition in truffle mica. If you look on the lexus website the truffle mica is listed as a special order color for 2009. I however did not ask how much the 2009's are being sold for. Because there has been a $1000 price drop off of MSRP for 2009. I was not really interested in the pebble beach until he told me the price. The salemans initials are KC. But he will not be in tomorrow(Tuesday) he just sent me an e-mail.. I wonder what kind of deal they would make if we both bought one? I believe they have 4 of them left.
