#5777 of 5861 How much should I expect to pay for 2013 RX 350 AWD?
Sep 14, 2013 (6:56 pm)
I am in the market to buy a new car. Currently, I have narrowed it down to two cars:
1. 2014 Acura RDX AWD W/Tech (MSRP $40515)
2. 2013 Lexus RX 350 AWD with these packages: Lexus Display/Audio, Comfort package, Premium package W/Blind Spot plus some minor accessories. (MSRP $48000)
There is about a $7.5K price difference between the two cars but I want to see how much of a discount I can get for each car to see if the price difference goes down.
I am from the Chicagoland area (7% tax). What is a good deal for these cars? I would appreciate any help in this matter.

Just wanted you guys to know that I pulled the trigger on the 2013 RX 350 AWD.
47000(excluding ttl and the 1750 finance cash back which I got as well). MSRP 51060
Options include comfort package, nav, premium with blind spot, Park assist, 19 inch wheels, preferred accessory package, cross bars, leather trimmed steering wheel, towing prep and door edge guards.
Got the 1.9% for 60 months as well.
I could have gotten it for lower but i wanted a particular color combination and stock was starting to run low. I was able to negotiate using information gleaned from this forum so thank you! This was at Schaumburg, IL.

Your deal was right on the money. That is exactly what everyone should get at this time of year. You got a good deal.

any destination fees were included in the $47K price.
Stuff not included in the price: taxes, title and registration, and $164.30 for doc fees
Also didn't include the $1750 rebate I got in the $47K

Please let me know what you think of this deal.
Sale Price 47K
Plus $1750 discount/cashback (Lexus Financing)
I know dennism5 got 51K MSRP for 47K. But look like it is hard for me to get it. "dennism5" please help me if you can so I can get the same deal like you. Look like I have to take whatever the color available (Not my choice) and also I have to travel 400+ miles to get it.

If I read the numbers correctly, you are getting almost the same deal as me (~400 bucks more). I used the end of month timing to get the deal I wanted. But I don't know if you can wait for that long.
I contacted all dealers around me and gave them my price (I said I wanted to be around 48.5K out the door). And out of 7-8 dealers I contacted, two offered to do around 49K and I went with the first one who did that because I was having a hard time getting some of the dealers to find the color combination I wanted and I didn't want to deal with picking another color.
It all depends on how many dealers you have in the area and if they have the car you want in stock. They will definitely be looking to get rid of the 2013 stock now so you should be able to get the price you want if you have enough dealers around you.
#5784 of 5861 RX350 Paint Protection
Oct 05, 2013 (12:11 pm)
Just bought 2013 EX350 with the F sport front bumper. The dealer says there are two packages: film covers rear view mirrors, fenders , front hood: $395. For the front bumper another $395.
These prices are for the film itself and installation will be another $4-500.
The cost appears high. Has anyone else purchased this Lexus certified paint protection option?
BTW love the car. Came out of a 2010 ES350 that I hated for the bad driver's seat causing back pain.

I am in MN but not getting a price anywhere close to this. Can you let me know the name of the dealer and salesperson. Thanks much.

That's a dealer installed very high profit aftermarket item. Probably worth less than half of the quoted price, I'd pass unless they come way down on the price. Shops that do glass tinting sometimes offer similar products at more competitive prices and dealers often sub out the jobs to them anyway. My 2¢.
