I have spoke to many many people, and contacted many others and not heard of any such offers such as getting 5k off of 2013 or 8+ k off of 2012 rx.
The best I have heard and researched was about 5k off of th 2012, at certain dractically over stocked dealerships especially those on the west coast, and around 2500 off of 2013 at CA dealerships, and around 1 k off of 2013 on the east coast

Thanks everybody for the valuable advice and replies. Just bought the following for $41945 and the msrp was $46945, so got just exactly $5000. Initially he took of $4000 for the one without the comfort package and offered $5000 off on one with comfort package. Then without much negotiation came down another $1000 off on the non-comfort package
Wife's preferred interior and exterior, silver exterior and black interior
19 inch wheels
Heated and Ventilated Seats
Intuitive Parking Assist
Wood and Leather Steering Wheel & Shift Knob
What do you all think?

California, of course but live in Texas. Worth the shipping cost because it is still cheaper and had the exact configuration we were looking.

#4973 of 5864 Is this a good deal?
May 28, 2012 (5:39 pm)
RX350 premium pkg, heated seats, parking assist, backup camera, cargo net/mat, wheel lock, wood/leather trimmed wheel, cross bar. MSRP $44674. got offered $38236+fees. which would come out to be $41643.
I thought it was a good deal if it fees are included in the 38k+ price. but is it still a good deal when it's not?

#4975 of 5864 What should I pay on 5/29 for 2012 RX350?
May 28, 2012 (8:39 pm)
So looking to buy a 2012 RX350 tomorrow in the Los Angeles area. FWD, Navigation, Premium and Comfort packages. I don't think we need other packages or accessories. Looking to buy instead of lease and the 0.9% financing appeals to us.
Does anyone know: 1) What is the best price we can probably negotiate; and 2) Can we put only 10% down and still take advantage of the low financing?

You should be able to negotiate atleast $6000 off msrp. I am in Texas and there were multiple CA dealers offered the $5000 off just over the phone and if had been physically there could have negotiated more. I am still figuring out how to register it here in Texas, and most of the dealers would not be helpful to sell a financed call out of state for the hassles involved I guess.
I did not get the comfort package, but I do remember one of the stickers was $48603 and they offered $43603 right off the bat. Just to give you an idea.
For the 0.9% you can put 10% down provided your credit score. Good luck.

rebos in AZ.:
If you buy in Calif yet live in AZ, you will have to pay Ca sales tax IF you drive it in CA as a new sold car.
Then AZ, when you get there with it will hit you too, as it is your residence, and the law requires you to register and tag it in AZ. And pay tax in AZ.
The car now, with present tax laws, needs to be transported , NOT DRIVEN.
Be Very careful of this and follow the laws of both states.
By the way several good dealers in CA know transport companies and will set that up for you IF you buy from them. They also know Ca laws on a new car driven IN Calif. Ask the Ca Dealer(a Manager)..they know it.
Transport from So. Ca to Phoenix won't be that bad, based on mileage. If you get a great deal like many here have, it more than offsets the transporting.
When will the Phoenix -AREA, Lexus dealers, ever realize the sales they are losing to Ca dealers, by being too greedy in their deals--or non deals ? Another reason they don't have allocation , which is based on sales, not profit made per vehicle. They know it, they just feel they can get by with it. Ca dealers have large inventory, as they serve a large population, thus allocation. And they go for volume as well as a sprinkling of some big profit sales too. AZ apparently can't ,and won't even try to move more cars to get better inventories.
They seem to have the attitude that they have a captive audience. Silly isn't it, with CA being right next door and so easy to get too.
