#2 of 2855 Prices paid for UL package?
May 28, 2006 (10:42 am)
Anybody out there that has purchased/leased a UL. Are the dealers sticking to the MSRP. Seems to be the case in my area.

Yes. There are lots of posts pertained in other ES350 catagory about purchase price and etc...
Unless you are a very good business man (negotiator), you're better off going through internet(fleet dept).
I purchased an UL package last week. Got $3,000 off MSRP. But I live in Los Angeles where there are more competition. NOT FROM LONGO. They gave me $1,500 discount and the was it. They didn't want to negotiate with me nor did they care if they got business from me. Because they are SO BIG. And they didn't get business from me and they never will. And I live like 10 miles away from them.
The point being here is that yes, you can get discount. Don't show them you really love the car. Make'em fell like it's OK if you don't get the car from them.
If you live in smaller town, you might have to go further out a little bit. So hope this helps. The car is more than fabulous.

Santa Monica was willing to deal. At least that's the impression I got. But I got the best deal from Glendale. Good luck.
#6 of 2855 UL package deals in DC/MD/VA?
May 29, 2006 (6:27 am)
I was first thinking about getting the Premium Plus w/ Nav, but the more and more I see the UL Package. I'm leaning that way. It has everything I'm really wanting. Can anyone in the DC/MD/VA who has bought an ES 350 UL Package... tell me your experiences?

#9 of 2855 Pulled the trigger on Ul with Mark Levinson
Jun 01, 2006 (9:52 am)
Folks..just bought the ES 350 with Ultra Lux with Mark Levinson in SIlver with Grey Interiors from Coliseum Lexus in Oakland (SF Bay Area).
Paid 1000 over invoice (39300 Approx + Tax and reg). Excellent service from the dealer with a pleasant experience.
Will add post later about experiences with the car.
#10 of 2855 I also got the UL with Mark Levinson, and all the features
Jun 01, 2006 (1:51 pm)
I got the black with black interior. My car also had dealer installed $3000 crome rims. I got $3000 knocked off so I paid MSRP... but i still think its a decent deal cause i got free rims.
I also added on the "black kit".. which cost 600 bux or so... In retrospect i probably shouldn't of paid that much for it.. all well.
I'm a first time buyer, so i'm not very good at haggling for deals.. but my dealer was very nice and it was a pleasent buying experience. Now if i can only get the wind issue fixed....

Steer clear of Lindsay. They're unwilling to negotiate on any version of the ES 350 that has premium packages of any kind, at least that was my experinece. My sales rep claimed that they are selling the ES 350 at MSRP...period. He did finally budge but only after upping the initial price by $700 to add the rear collision avoidance and a full-sized spare (options I had no interst in) and then offering a $750 discount. So at that point, I was only $50 ahead of where I started and I went in well informed about the actual invoice for the car and all options. Good luck and let us know if you are successful. I'm about to try Pohanka.
