I purchased my 2007 Lexus ES350 June 21, 2007 from Arrowhead Lexus, Peoria, AZ.
I met a sales rep at 8am and was out the door with my new Lexus at 10am. He was courteous, informative and professional. The purchasing process was satisfying and pleasant.
I paid $42k.
My ES350 has a Starfire Pearl exterior with Cashmere interior.
Besides the stardard features, mine is equipped with:
Voice-Activation with Destination Input
Intuitive Parking Assist
Premium Plus Package
Perforated Leather Seats and Trim with Memory
Driver & Front Passenger Seats, Outside Mirrors
Power Tilt Telescoping Steering Wheel
Heated and Ventilated Front Seats
Driver Power Cushion Extender
Rain Sensing Wipers
Wood & Leather Steering Wheel
Preferred Accessory Package
Trunk Mat and Cargo net
I tinted the windows June 22 will hard-wire my Escort Passport 8500 X50 Radar Detector June 23 and have scheduled a Clear Coat to be done June 27.
This is a beautiful automobile. I hope that it will meet my expectations.

This is the possible bottom line price for ES350 w/ navigation in bay area. A couple of buyers did post this price on this forum. You might be able to lower down the price few hundred dollars. But, you need to spend more time in negotiating and shopping. You exchange time with money.

I purchased my Black/Tan ES350 this month from the Internet dept at Hennessy Gwinnett and love it. I shopped twelve Lexus dealers in(Florida, Ala.,Tenn,SC,NC and GA) and ultimately drove past three dealers, so no need to spend the two months I spent analyzing my lengthy spreadsheet. I won't get specific, but I also had some rude experiences with many. I finally decided to go with Hennessy Gwinnett because the Internet Manager (D.C.) was by far, the "straightest shooter" and he showed the most willingness to work with me.
I got the best deal from Hennessy Gwinnett with the Premium Plus/NAV car and paid a little under $42,000 "drive out", which included their $389 doc fee, 7% tax and like $50 in tag and title fees. Be careful..some dealers will quote you a low price, but surprise you with high doc fees, like some FL dealers and the dealer in South Atl. Hennessy has the lowest I found and I had no surprises when I went their for the first time to pick mine up from Dale. I was in and out in 60 minutes, like I asked. NO SURPRISES!!!!
I might be sitting in traffic everyday, but now I am lookin good in my new Lexus and know I saved enough to afford this $3+ gas. Honk if you see me!

Thanks for your posting! My husband and I are in Dallas and bought a Lexus ES 350 w/Nav last month from Sean at Sewell in Dallas. It was such a great experience and Sean is FANTASTIC. He made it all very simple and the service was great.

I'm glad you could take advantage of the info. Based on the prices other folks are getting around the country, namely E and W coasts, we should be able to shave more $ off the price. Either way, I'm glad Sean came thru for you, too.

roinct---just picked up my es350 at Ray Catena in Oakhurst--had a final price of 36650 with premium plus package, nav system and a few other extras--found the salesman, Mark Mura to be the best I have ever encountered and the dealership to be of the highest quality-- if you go there ask for Mark Mura and tell him Joe Cornell recommended him to you--good luck

Thanks for the tip on Arrowhead Lexus, would you give me the name of who you dealt with as I am in Chandler and not having luck with the local dealerships? Thanks!

dscuba, I purchased my ES350 from D.C. at Hennessy Gwinnett as well. However, my out the door price was a little over $40k, with prem. plus package and the real spoiler. I personally believe you could have gotten a better deal. I do agree that D.C. was easy to work with. He is a great salesman.

After about a month of researching other makes and models, I bought my Black on Cashmere ES350 from Newport Beach Lexus. THIS PLACE WAS GORGEOUS!!! I've never seen a car dealership with a boutique and putting green. I needed my mother who lives in San Francisco to co-sing for my lease. I made my deal primarily by phone with the Internet/Fleet Manager Q. Morgan, and his assistant Heather... They were absolutely awesome. They fed-exed the paperwork to my mom and I had my vehicle two days later. Here are the details:
m.s.r.p $41,822 (premium plus package with navigation)
my price $36,600
12,000 miles per year
$598 (including tax) for 35 months
#666 of 2890 Price at Sewell Lexus
Jul 03, 2007 (11:08 am)
Got a pretty good quote (I think) from Sean at Sewell Lexus in Dallas. It has the following:
ES350 Premium Plus (No Nav)
Premium Plus Package Includes:
- Leather-trimmed interior
- Heated and ventilated front seats
- Driver's seat power cushion extender
- Lexus Memory System to control power driver's and front passenger's
seats (except lumbar), outside mirrors and steering wheel
- Electrochromic outside mirrors with tilt-down in reverse
- Rain-sensing intermittent windshield wipers with mist cycle
- Wood- and leather-trimmed steering wheel and shift knob
- Bluetooth® Audio
- Power rear sunshade
- Full-size spare tire with 17-in alloy wheel
- Rear seat side airbags
- Preferred Accessory Package (includes Cargo net, Trunk mat and Wheel locks)
He has quoted me $34,798 for a 36 month lease with first payment down and $599 per month (includes 8.25% Texas tax). Sean has been extremely fair and I believe that this is a great deal but would love some feedback. He was able to lower the interest rate to 7.2% from 9%. Lexus lease rates aren't all that great. Can anyone comment?
