Although I did not buy in this area I have dealt with the Internet dept at Lexus of Towson, MD by email and phone and found them to be honest and very price competitive.
What is the MSRP and options for the model you are looking at? Is your price for a lease or finance?
Always negotiate on an outright cash purchase with no trade in. After you get the deal you want work on the financing or leasing then deal with the trade in at the very end.

I am getting pricing on the 2011 ES with Ultra Luxury at $39480. The sticker is $45220. Is this a good price or could I do better?

That doesn't sound too bad - but I'm certainly no expert. I've been hoping I could find one with ML/Nav but without the UL package - they just don't make them that way. I tried to configure one on paper with all the options I would want (including some UL features, like the HID, vent. seats, wood trim), and the invoice for my "ideal" vehicle (if it existed) was around $39.5K. Still about $5-6K more than a comparably equipped Avalon, which is also on my list. Can I ask who quoted you that price?

Actually $27, 500 is not too bad. I have an 2009 Nav/park assist, but my miles are much less than that. If you can get $26, then go for it, but that's another $1500 off, so it might be dicey.
#2652 of 2890 ES350 $5,900 below MSRP
Mar 18, 2011 (12:51 am)
I recently bought a 2011 Lexus ES350 at Putnam Lexus in SF Bayarea for $36,000. MSRP sticker price was $41,900. It has navigation, power rear sunshade, LCD display for backup camera, parking assist, wood and leather steering wheel, preferred acc. package, leather trim, and spoiler. It's not UL package. They called it Navigation package.
I also got a $1000 discount as a current owner of another Lexus vehicle.
Other dealers in the bayarea were quoting $37,000 for the same package.
No haggling was done. I requested a quote from all dealers in my area using truecar.com and just picked the lowest. This price is about $1200 below invoice per edmunds.com and truecar.com.
This was my easiest car purchase ever. It was like buying an iPad at Bestbuy.

That is a great deal and should set the bar for anyone else looking at the same car. Did you buy or lease? What was the dealer fee?

What is dealer fee? I can' find it in my sale contract. My total OTD price is $39k = $35999 + tax + dmv + license fees + doc fees + CA tire fees - $1k loyalty discount. The $1k loyalty discount is after tax.
I purchased the car.

What was your doc fee? Sometimes dealers build their profit into the doc fee instead of or in addition to a dealer fee.
