Keep playing with their heads a little. I had the similar level of experiences, albeit with dealers in the Dallas, TX metro area. Only differences are:
1. We went with the 2008 Lexus ES 350 last July as opposed to the 2009 you maybe going for.
2. Our initial intent was to go CPO but eventually we went with a brand new one.
3. Our car that we eventually purchased has the Premium Plus Pkg, Navigation with backup camera, AFS-HID Headlights, Parking Sensor (F & R) and the Power Rear Sunshade. MSRP = $42575 approx. We ended up OTD on July 31 $37800 minus the $13.5k trade-in for my wife's 03 Honda Odyssey.
The key for you now if to play your game until the end of the month and you should end up lower than what I got. There absolutely have to be someone willing to bite $36500 or lower for the package you are asking for. Honestly, I think in a downright ugly Auto market, you should set your target $35750 roughly with the intent to ultimately and in the worse case scenario, close it not higher than $36500.
Good luck and let me know what you end up with. I am sure you will ultimately end up loving the car, it's a sweet and smooth ride. My wife drives ours in her commute to work daily.

Hey bigal728 - I was just in a NY dealership for 2 hours and they wouldn't budge past $38,100 either. I ended up leaving because I received an online quote from a dealership in NJ for $37,800 - but how are others getting quotes in the mid $36's??? Is the pricing different out west?

Hey everybody -
In a bit of a dilemma - have a quote for $37,800 + tax & tags for an ES 350 w/ Nav & premium plus package. MSRP $41,675
I would buy the car in a heartbeat for $36,500.
However, the 2.9% APR incentive expires on July 6th...
Would you guys say yes to $37,800 so that you can get the 2.9% financing for 60 months or would you roll the dice and see what kind of incentives/rebates come in July?
Any thoughts/ideas/help would be greatly appreciated...Thanks

that is interesting on why the price is higher in the east compared to the west. I have got an email quote for 36900 + TTL for ML+premium plus,

On May 22 I purchased a Lexus ES350 in PA. - 36,164 with premium plus package. Price was $700.00 over invoice price. Dealership wanted $2,500 more for NAV and backup camera. I am sorry that I did not get that package. I did get 2.9% financing for 48 months because of good credit rating. Dealership was forcing 3.9% but I insist on 2.9% that was being advertised. I love the car! I wish the car had a coat hook in backset area - Lexus really messed up on that!

May I ask what area you were able to get that deal for?
Nevermind, I see from your previous posts it looks like you are in the SF Bay area.

Yeah I am in the Sf Bay Area. I closed my deal at Stevens Creek Lexus. Putnam Lexus in redwood city also provided a similar offer but as it was little further away went with Stevens Creek.
