that may be true with certain makes/models but not the case with BMW, LEXUS, etc...simply because they dont have to. Take a look at all the selling price pts on these treads and you will maybe see 1-2 were able to purchase inv., and these were early in yr. when economy was in turmoil more than currently. So you can take from the bottom or top to reach price point you're looking to achieve, key being knowing aprox. cost veh. is costing dealer, they are a made for profit Co.
Good luck to everyone.

OTD (Out The Door) is the final price which includes all fees (tax & lic). No extra was added. Does anyone know how much is reg/lic. fee for 09 ES350 in California?

As bhusted mentioned cut to chase and let them know some things right off the bat. Like car mark-up is 10- 11 % before options where most options are 15-20 % mark-up and higher. Knowing or having close # of their cost will go a long way to your leverage. You should strive for 34k - 34.6 and wouldn't be bad deal imo.. One more thought if you are willing to pay $ 14.00, go to consumer reports online or call and you will get an instant dealer cost on specific vehicle w/ details on what options are costing Dealer.

Sorry but Lexus's and BWMs are selling at invoice or better. I got a quote for an IS250 last month at invoice, and that was with zero negotiating. I also received a quote for a 328 for $1000 below invoice. I wound up getting a G37 for $1000 under invoice with my $1000 customer loyalty discount because they are the best value of the three

Congrats. Different markets will yield different results or could be that your just better than the rest of us on this forum, because based on what I'm getting and what people are stating here, invoice is not happening.
Again congrats on your purchase !

Back to my point, I think people should be talking pricing in terms of relation to invoice, not MSRP. Over on the G35/37 pricing forum everyone discusses prices in terms of invoice except for one, and that one is a sales manager at Sewell Infiniti in TX.

I received an offer from a dealer in Charlotte for $36,405.89 OTD with XM radio included on the ES350. North Carolina sales tax is 3% and I think the doc/tag fee is ~$550. I hope that helps!

I just read about your deal, and this is exactly the car that I am looking for. I'm in the bay area but wouldn't mind driving to LA. I called the dealership yesterday and the person I talked to wanted 38,000 + TTL. Can you give me the name of your sales rep and when you bought it and maybe that person might be able to help me out.
I really appreciate it.

If you are in the bay area, did you consider talking to putnam lexus or stevens creek lexus? I purchased my vehicle end of june from Stevens Creek as it was closer to my residence.
The sales rep at Putnam is an asian and you can find his details on yelp.
You can also talk to the Internet manager at Stevens Creek.
Another good offer i got was from the lexus dealership in oakland.
