#582 of 5850 Brand New 2007 RX 350
Apr 01, 2007 (1:09 pm)
I just purchased on March 31, 2007, a brand new 2007 Lexus RX 350 with Black exterior, the Premium Plus package, and heated front seats. The local dealer added tinting to the front windows and the dealer price selling price before tax and fees was $34,800.
Things I learned:
1. Dealing at the end of the month really makes a difference
2. The internet manager at the dealerships quickly quoted very good prices and did so rapidly because....
3. I shopped BOTH of the dealerships in town and the two seem to be fairly competitive.
I live in Dallas and we have both Sewell Lexus and Park Place Lexus in town and they both have two dealerships in the area so they have lots of inventory to draw from.
By the way, the document fee was only $50.00 (I have heard some Lexus dealers use this to make extra money at no cost)

I purchased an 08 AWD with NAV Bamboo Pearle yesterday for $43,000 out the door at Lexus of Cerritos at S. Cal. The deal I got, no body can match around here, not even different people at the same dealer. Not even Longo can match it.

Purchased a 2007 RX350 AWD Black/Brown w/ 3000 mi, Nav, Prem +, heated seats/rain sensing wipers, XM, 18in alloys, etc last night for $38,000 +doc fee ($579) and +South Carolina Tx and Transfer ($325) from a Toyota dealership in Georgia. I dealt with someone in their internet department and had to finally talk to the desk before they would accept the deal for the car and trade. I think it is beneficial to wait toward the end of the month (2Apr was the last day of "March" because the actual last day occurred on a weekend) and work through the internet department. The only downside to the deal was the 3 hour drive there and back, but it was worth it to me. If anyone else is hunting in the Carolina area shoot me an e-mail or reply to this and I'll be happy to share my experiences.

email me at rinasauncehotmail.com and I will give you the name of my contacts. I ended up purchasing the car at Park Place Lexus in Plano as they had a 2007 in stock but Sewell made me a fantastic offer on a 2008.
I picked up the car yesterday and I could NOT be happier. Its fantastic, looks beautiful and the black exterior with the black interior is sharper than I would have ever imagined (this is the first black car I have ever owned). I am incredibly pleased so far.

New to this ... I'm trying to understand any special lease offers from Lexus on the RX 350. We saw an ad last nite for ~$3925 down, $429 /month for an '07. When I went to the local dealer today they said that "National" offer expired 4/2/07 ... also last nite ... but they would give me the same lease terms on an '08.
The dealer promised the best money factor, either from the expiring special offer or from the next special offer.
My questions are: Was this a bait & switch? Why advertise at 11:30 pm for a deal that ends at midnight? Does Lexus Financial change their lease offers frequently? What should I expect to see in their next "special offer"?

Actually, the $429 wasn't available & it was for a 2WD car. They came back at $532 (w/tax) and $4,100 down. So I still don't know it's such a great deal.
