#560 of 2855 Re: ES 350 in/around Houston [rou1]
Apr 21, 2007 (12:44 pm)
For the Houston and TX shoppers, I just purchased my ES350 premium plus w/ Nav from Sean at Sewell Lexus in Dallas for 37,400 + TTL. I mentioned the other purchases listed on this board thru him, and he honored the price, plus the $200 increase in cost since Jan 2007. The entire process took about 15 minutes on the phone and was SOOO easy. I live in Houston, so the papers were FedExed to me w/ a return FedEx envelope included. A few signatures, and it was a done deal.
I also purchased a 5 yr tire protection plan ($385) that covers any blowout or necessary replacement of the tires. This includes if you hit a curb and blow out a tire. If rim damage occurs, then the rim and wheel get replaced. I also got the platinum 7y/ 100K miles warrantee for $1365, the same price as offered by the sales manager in Huntsville as mentioned on this board. I believe that is $100 over cost.
I tried to purchase this in Houston, where I live, but no one would deal. When I spoke with a friend's friend here in Houston that sells Lexus, he flat out told me that he could easily sell that car for $39,500, so he couldn't let any go for that price. Very disappointing. TX prices still don't match the east coast. Good luck.

I have been helping my father-in-law price the ES 350 with Navigation and premium plus package. In general I have not found a dealer in Northern California who is willing and/or able to match the prices in Southern California. If you are still in the market for an ES 350, I can refer you to a dealer who offered me the best price without negotiation. The price was below invoice (invoice = $37,062, MSRP = $41,822)! You can contact me at [edmundsES350 at jabberwock dot net] if you want the details. The salesperson I dealt with was very professional, honest and upfront. I enjoyed my interaction with him so much that I want to refer more business to him.
#562 of 2855 Panorama Roof Worth it???
Apr 26, 2007 (12:00 pm)
Looking at a UL primarily because of the panorama roof. If you have one do you think it was worth the extra $2500?
Also for a UL, what is the best pricing anyone has seen on the East Coast?

#564 of 2855 Re: April Money Factor ?
Apr 26, 2007 (5:18 pm)
I'm working on a deal where the MSRP is $41,911 and the dealer offered $37,000. This is for a 48 month lease, Tier 1+ credit, money factor of .00275 and residual value of $18,450. With a cap reduction of $2500 the monthly payment would be $562. Does this jive?
Does anyone know what the April money factor is or what May's will be?
-- update --
I ran the numbers through Excel and I come up with a $551 payment with $1,500 down. I used the same money factor and residual as the dealer. But under the dealer's offer I would've had to put down $3,000 to hit a $550 payment. Where are they hiding money?
This is in the Philadelphia market by the way.

I live in the Philadelphia area and am looking to purchase a UL with Mark Levinson/NAV. Has anyone in this area purchased one and what price did you pay?
Any pricing information for the same specs in Delaware or NJ?
#566 of 2855 Lexus ES/RX 350 in Great Richmond, VA
Apr 26, 2007 (8:09 pm)
I like this site very much and got a lot of valuable info so I would like to add my purchasing experience of Lexus ES/RX 350 in Great Richmond, VA.
I just settle a deal of Lexus ES350 with Premium but no Navi for 35,500 (stick price 38,202) from Lexus of Richmond, VA. I can get ES350 with Premium plus + Navi for 38,112 (stick price 41,612). Here Doc process hidden fee is low about 189.oo and VA sale tax is 3%.
I can get the same car from Lindsay, northern VA about 500.00 less, but just don't want to drive 3 hours (one way) for this 500 bucks. Plus I need to install 3M film paint protection option. Local is easy to deal.
Last Nov. I got RX350 for 39,500 with stick price about 43,000 (can not remeber exact).
Hope this can help someone around this area when buying the same cars.

Just curious, guess I'm missing something on the Prestige Web site, you mention Prestige inventory of 350's is available on line, I can't see to find specific models in stock, just general information(all Lexus dealers web sites look to be the same no matter the locations?) can you help?
#568 of 2855 Just bought Lexus ES350 in California bay area
Apr 28, 2007 (9:28 am)
I like this site very much so I want to share my experience in buying ES350. I just bought a ES350 for around $1000 below its invoice (msrp $41822, invoice $37062, see details below). All negotiations were through email. I had a very pleasant experience this time, much better than my last car buying. They even gave me a loan with great rate so I changed my mind to pay in full and took their loan.
