#928 of 5860 Re: REGARDING #915 LEXUS 350 FROM BAY AREA MARIN, CALIF [krisv]

Heu CrisV, Crackberry....I did not buy the vehicle yet, am in no hurry and actually just got back after test driving an ML 350 Benz. If I am paying approx mid 40's for a Lexus I might as well get the Benz. Anyways I am going to help you guys with all I can provide:
The Pohanka Lexus at Chantilly rejected my 43.5k out of the door offer on a 2008 AWD, PP, NAV & DVD. I think he was looking at 44.5k OTD
I spoke on the phone with CS, the internet mangaer in Lindsay Lexus of Alexandria and he quoted me 44.7 OTD for same config.
Attached below is my email transcript with "SD" the internet manager of Lexus of Rockville:
"Venu, Leo had shown me this email, so I decided it is best for me to respond. Edmunds is not the true source of getting information for Lexus vehicles. They do not inform the customer of the actual features on a Lexus, so when customers decide they want this feature and don't want that feature it is not how Lexus sells their vehicles. We have 3 different models in the RX 350 without navigation, with navigation, and with navigation and DVD. The information that I will provide is from the manufacture themselves. That is where the real information comes from that Leo provided $500 over invoice on the RX 350 with navigation/DVD not Edmunds.
The information that you sent over is for the 2007 which the 2007's are long gone. The 2008 RX 350 which is shown below. Edmunds.com information that I found on this particular vehicle is so far from correct it is not funny. On Edmunds.com I found states that the MSRP is $47,445. The real MSRP Lexus tells us is $47,395. Optional equipment $7770 cost is $4673 wrong....actually the package is $7880 the invoice is $6615 in which Edmunds.com does not show you the correct invoice since they do not add the features to the vehicle. I can offer $42,653 for this vehicle. Again, $500 over invoice."
Sounds like they are willing to give it to me for 42653 + TTP which amounts to mid 44k. HOPE ALL OF THIS HELPS!! Keep me posted with your decisions. I will wait to get mine!!

Sounds pretty comparable to my deal on east coast: MSRP 45700 paid $40,700 (before tax, docs, reg) except mine has:
5 spoke 18' wheels vs your 7 (-$100),
no cargo mat (-$100),
and mine has Premium Plus package.
Get them to throw in the cargo net (-$120) installed to your deal!
