I just thought I would show what I feel is a great deal in the Chicagoland area.
In this case subtracting 9.5% off MSRP will put $135.00 over invoice ..
If anyone is interested in finding out the sales person and dealership just email me. I did all of this deal over the phone. Hope I helped.

My car from Watertown MA is on its way to OH as we speak!
I thought I'd relay an interesting story ... when I was trying to buy around Cincinnati/Dayton, I couldn't get nearly the deal I was getting from Massachusetts. One saleslady in Dayton was particularly rude, saying that I was lying for claiming I could get the car for what I was getting it for, and implying that everyone else here was lying too about buying below invoice. So once my deal was closed, I e-mailed her the VIN and my purchase price and said (basically) "stick it!"
Well, a few days later I had a voicemail from the dealer here in Cincinnati, and he said "You'd better call me, I have some bad news for you about Lexus of Watertown. I think you're going to be unhappy to hear this." I had a brief moment of panic. I called him back, and he said that the dealer in Dayton contacted him and then he looked up my VIN and said "They sold you a car without the nav package, that's why it's so cheap." I told him that I had the window sticker as well as a bill of sale which both listed the nav package/NV, so if the car came without it I certainly had grounds to go after Watertown, and he said "fine".
I then went back to look at my e-mail to Dayton an noticed that I mistyped the VIN (the last 6 numbers are one number off from an important date for me, so I typed that instead).
Funny that these two dealers a) talked to each other, b) were so concerned about whether I was getting the right car or not, c) didn't make one effort to try to match Watertown's price, and d) are obviously scratching their heads trying to figure out how Watertown is doing it!!
I'll post again when I have my car between today (Sunday) and Tuesday.

Very interesting. I'm getting similar responses from the dealers in NE Ohio - they think you're lying when you say how much better the deals are outside the region. Can you email me at apb0427aol.com - I'd like to get more information from you. I live in Cleveland but come down to your neck of the woods weekly on business. So if I could get the Cincinnati dealer to match your MA deal, I would consider buying there. I have bought from them in the past - wasn't overly impressed with their service dept, but I wouldn't have to take the car there.
#3800 of 5869 Lease Deal on 2010 RX 350 AWD
Jul 25, 2010 (7:01 am)
just went out this past weekend and with $3000 down, the dealer is offering me $549 / month for 36 months, 10,000 miles per year for the 2010 RX 350 AWD non-navigation but with back-up camera. is this decent?

Great story!!!...do you mind sharing who you dealt with at Watertown?..I am in NJ and if I get a similar deal, (I am awaiting the 2011), I might travel there (4 hours away) and buy from them...enjoy in the best of health...happy motoring..

I was not able to get anyone here to come close to the deal. The guy at my local dealer said (quite calmly and nicely) "If they can really sell it to you for that price, go get it. I would!"
All the info about my specifics are earlier in this board. We're not supposed to post names, but I just called Lexus of Watertown and asked for their internet sales person.

Picking up an RX 350 and Es 350 from Lexus of Watertown tomorrow. They blew away their competition with their prices. I'm leasing these vehicles. I am turning in a 2008 RX 350 and 2007 ES 350 that I had leased from Lexus of Norwood. They valued their customers so much that they quoted me higher than Watertown and then told me Watertown could never do this deal. Anyway, I just wanted to follow up on the other Watertown posts and say they are Legit.
