What is the price today have to do with what it will be in about a month. There are a few ships on the water now bringing more ES 350's to the dealers. Right now the dealers are having a field day with supplies being short and demand being high. As soon as that changes to demand being low and inventory being high you will see the market change.It happens with every new car that is brought to market

#45 of 2890 Fair price for ES-350???
Jun 18, 2006 (1:16 pm)
Using Edmunds' numbers, I feel that an ES-350 with ultimate package ($29,410 + $4,378) plus $695 freight and tacking-on a flat $1,000 profit is a MORE THAN fair offer to any dealer. Has a anyone found a dealer willing to go for an offer like that? If not, I'll put my money elsewhere!

I assume you're talking about the Ultra-Lux
package. If so, isn't the MSRP something
north of $43,000 for an ES350 with the Ultra-
Lux package? It sounds like your numbers
would probably be a little low if it's with
the Ultra-Lux package. Right now, the best
we've seen on these boards so far is possibly
39,000 for an ES with Ultra-Lux package.

You're forgeting that the UL package requires Navigation w/ Premium Audio ($2230) or Navigation w/ Mark Levinson ($3350). That brings the invoice to at least $36,713 (inc. freight).

Perhaps you're both correct, but you know, this is the only manufacturer who seems to have a pricing schedule deliberately designed so that you are actually REQUIRED to "pile-on" on one package in order to select another one! In my estimation, this constitutes a genuine rip-off of consumers, and in reality, makes the Avalon Limited an even BETTER buy! I can truly live without the snob appeal, if that's what it will take to avoid being royally gouged ! I've just about reached three score and ten, and I'm not only too old to be hustled like this, I'm also too damned smart !

They were pretty straight forward...I had the same price accepted by two dealerships ..but this dealership had the color I wanted.
We exchanged a few emails and phone calls...and had agreed to the price even before I went in there.
The Coliseum Lexus folks were very nice...an extremely good experience. We were done in 30-40 mins. The salesporson took an hour to walk through all the high tech features...which got me off to a good start.

Perhaps you are just cheap? just kidding. You probably haven't tried to buy a MB or BMW, to know what a "royal gouge" is like. One really need to pay to buy these luxury cars, so those owners must snob for good reasons
I found that it is a reality check as to where one's "money mentality" is. I can buy 30 of these with cash if someone hold a gun to my kids. But, I couldn't buy one over a Camry or Avalon from not wanting to be "rip-off". I am still working on paying for luxury things and letting others make money off me
