I don't know how good a price that is .... looks about a thousand over invoice. Several people have reported better discounts.
I'm in Va. and the price you paid is the lowest I've been offered so far for a car with similar MSRP.
The dealer says thats their bottom price .... I haven't threatened to walk yet. I'm gonna shoot for a little closer to invoice. Plus I read on the forum, the 2011's are coming in soon. I won't feel as good about getting one at invoice once the 2011s are out. I would assume thats why Lexus has been offering these deep discounts for several months, to boost sales of 2010's to match their production.
Prices paid may vary by area ..... who knows.

Is the '11 a new model or it is just the same as '10 except the year? Is there any significant difference between the two? Any thought is appreciated.

#3599 of 5877 Looking to Buy a used 2008 RX 350
May 28, 2010 (5:49 am)
I am beginning negotiations on the above vehicle at Metro Lexus in Cleveland. The vehicle has standard equipment, no nav, is nicely trimmed and has only 24,000 miles. The dealer is asking $31,988. I am trading a used 2003 ES300 which has 120,000 miles and is rated (by me) as "fair". I am offered $6,500. Can you tell me how much wiggle room I have to negotiate? I am hoping to get the dealer to move $3K in total. Realistic?

Please provide details of the dealer.I am at So.California
#3602 of 5877 So Cal. Dealer for my new RX 350...

Surprisingly, the dealer was Lexus in Santa Monica. Always a bit skeptical of SM dealerships, but they played ball. I even changed the deal and decided (at the last minute) not to lease and to buy "cash" -- and to their credit, they didn't change the deal terms as I was expecting -- since they were losing the financing profit.
So, props to Lexus S.M.

Thanks a lot samgs. Who is the sales person? I have dealt different sales persons from the same dealer and they can treat you differently.

#3605 of 5877 most of them don't come with HID?
May 31, 2010 (8:54 am)
I've been shopping for a 2010 RX350 this weekend. To my surprise, a big portion of them are in the 45k trim -> without the comfort package. Meaning they don't have the HID light. I was really, really surprised at the dealer when the sales showed me the halogen light and claimed "These are super powerful lights that you don't need HID. Most of our customers don't want them (HID) equipped anyways". This thing really bugs me as it's year 2010 already and Lexus is still putting halogen light bulbs from the last century on these 40k supposed-to-be-luxurious cars. Trying to save a few bucks? Maybe...
Has anyone noticed this?
