I, too, considered Acura when I purchased my new RX350. I love it.
My suggestion is to call several dealers and tell them that whoever meets your price that you'll buy from them.
I'd be firm as to your price. Take 10% off the total MSRP. Don't back down and also say No Doc fee.
You can also ask the sales rep to check the inventory of other nearby dealers.
From my experience and what I've heard is that you can always get below invoice. For a $50,000+ RX, you should be able to get it for 10% off.

I am in the market for a 2013 RX350. I am ready to make an offer to an internet manager for an end of October purchase, but I am wondering if I should wait a few more weeks to see if the December to Remember offers would get me a better deal. Does anyone have an opinion? What is typically offered with the December to Remember sales? The dealership seems to be hungry for an October deal.. Bear in mind, I am purchasing, not leasing. Thanks!

Try making a low ball offer such as 15% off MSRP. Tell them if they meet your offer that you'll buy now, otherwise you'll come back in Dec.
Make sure you put yourself in the controlling position. Make your offer to them, not vise versa.

I vote to work the manager very hard, then when you have a decent price..wait if you can until that December event, remember the price he offered now, and demand the discounts offered then/or coupons if any. Remember, the internet manager will not give his final price, on line, as you must come in for that, and work for more off. He knows you are shopping with other dealers on line.
Usually the December event ,as well as other NATIONAL events which is sponsored by the Lexus Factory, means they are making a incentive to the dealers, so that they can offer you a lower price, as they get extra money from the factory.
If you need the car sooner, then as other said he..go with his ideas now.
Good luck and let us know how it works out ?

Picked up my 2013 Rx 350 over the weekend in DC area. FWD, Premium Package, Lexus Display, Heated Front Seats, Wood & Leather Trim, Cargo Net, etc MSRP $44.5K (including delivery). Paid $38.1K plus tax and tags. No trade-in. Lexus Financing is running a 1K incentive for current Lexus owners. So that helped.

$6k off is reasonable. Dealer in SoCal gave $5200 over the phone. Some dealer in the boonies will give more off to if they didn't met their quota.
