Got another quote from a broker today:
2012 ES350 MSRP $39,422 (not itemized; no navigation)
OTD cash $38,988 (incl LA County tax, license & fees)
The broker said that MSRP changes every week depending on the new inventories that come into the dealership.

I am the original owner of a 2007 ES350. While price is important, consider that you are buying possible the best car on the market. I am intending to buy the 2013 ES when introduced, however I really don't want to give up my 07. If you've never had a Lexus, you will be blown away by the service. The European cars don't have the reliability of the Lexus or the amazing service. The "reviewers" don't give Lexus the respect it deserves. They dribble over the European cars, that will let you down. The feel of quality surrounds you. Listen to the "thud" when you close the doors - quality. I get 24 mpg on regular gas, cumulative from when I bought my car 12/06. My two cars previous to my Lexus were more expensive, but not as satisfying. I would only consider a Lexus going forward. It doesn't get better. Buy a clean ES, with as many options as you can, and you will never regret it.

I only wanted to add that I also have enjoyed my 2007 ES350. The service I received from my Lexus dealer was great~! - the only problem is the closest Lexus dealer is over an hour away from where I live. The interior lighting had alot to be desired and the only other complaint I had is the GPS. Other than that it is a great car and I am considering one of the SUV's in the next year or so.
#2728 of 2855 2012 vs. 2013 ES 350

Is the 2013 worth waiting for?
Will the 2012 be heavily discounted?
Lexus ES350 vs. Camry XLE .... is it night and day and worth the price difference?

Is the 2013 worth waiting for? The 2013 will be a major change from the 2012, with more bells & whistles. If you don't mind being a guinea pig for Lexus (debugging & troubleshooting a new model), it may be your thing.
Will the 2012 be heavily discounted? I think that depends on how well the 2013 sells when initially offered. If there's no takers for the left-over 2012s, you can expect to see some discounting--no telling how much discount though.
Lexus ES350 vs. Camry XLE .... is it night and day and worth the price difference? You actually asked two questions here, but my answer would be "YES" to both. Depends on what you want from your car though. Some people don't like the feeling of isolation & solitude the Lexus provides. I love it.

#2732 of 2855 Interested in purchasing a 2012 ES 350
Apr 15, 2012 (3:56 pm)
As the title states, I am currently set on purchasing a 2012 ES 350. Just standard base model without any bells or whistles. I live in Atlanta, GA. The listed MSRP is $36,725 and invoice is $34,400. I just wanted to get a general idea of the purchase price I should shoot for before PF, destination charges, and TTL. I have heard that 2,500~3,000 below the invoice is a good starting point so would I target for somewhere around 32,000 before the usual fees? I would appreciate any feedback and any purchasing experience. Thank you.

That sounds like an excellent price. I paid more than that for a 2007

In January of 2009, I bought an UltraLuxury (Glass panoramic roof, Mark Levinson, etc) 2008 brand new ES 350 with less than 80 miles as a left over from the dealer. MSRP 45450, I paid 35500 plus taxes. Moral of the story "it all depends upon supply and demand" Good Luck and happy Buying.
P.S. I love the car
