I purchased a vehicle at Lexus of Concord. Ask for Frank U. Sticker was 50.8 and I paid 46k. I think I could have gotten another 3-5 hundred off so I would go in asking for 45k and stay as close as you can but don't pay more than 46k. My car was fully loaded except the rear entertainment and the Mark L stereo. Great car and they are offering 1.9% rate. But if you have top tier credit they can find some cheaper rate and that rate is 1.45%.
Kimo the finance guy was very nice and no pressure. Good luck.
Tell Frank U that the tire kicker from Texas sent you.

Considering my first Lexus purchase (in a captive but fairly decent volume dealer area), any opinions on how much below invoice is reasonable on the following configuration? Any insight is much appreciated.
2013 RX FWD – MSRP $46, 789 (Edmunds Inv. $43,495)
Heated front seats
Wood/Leather steering wheel & shift
Preferred Accessory Pkg
Door Edge Guards

I think 1500 under invoice is considered a good deal on this car. Few people in this forum got even better price than that.You can get better deals if you go in the last week of the month.
I got mine at exactly 1500 under invoice. Another dealer was ready to give it for 1800 less though I opted for the first dealer since they have the car readily available with Michelin tires.
#5520 of 5522 Dealer cash/incentives
May 22, 2013 (8:32 am)
I am in the Bay Area and I have a couple of quotes for a 2013 AWD that are ~ 9.7% off MSRP (incl. destination), without having to negotiate. This excludes any LFS related rebates.
Now, while I am happy to get these quotes, I suspect that the dealer incentive page on this website isn't reflecting a dealer cash offer. Without it the math doesn't add up.
Here is example ( all numbers include destination fees)
1) MSRP: 50489
2) Base MSRP:41060
3) Invoice: 46732
4) holdback(2% of Base MSRP):821.20
5) Invoice - holdback:45910.80
Even with zero profit ( highly unlikely ) the quote should have been atleast 45,910.
What explains a quote of 45,651? What am I missing?
My hope is to dig out what the real dealer cash/incentive is so that I can drive the price down further.

Based on these numbers and my experience, I would try to get as close to $45,900 as possible, thus I'd offer $45,000 and go as high as maybe 46000,

I am in ST Louis and trying to buy RX350. Dealers are quoting close to MSRP but reading this board I am seeing near 10% of MSRP.
Willing to travel to Chicago or 200 mile radius to buy the car. Appreciate any suggestions.
