#947 of 5862 Price Break down of 2008 RX 350
Sep 23, 2007 (4:12 am)
Last week we bought Lexus RX 350 AWD, bought for $500 less than the below invoice, with 2 extra service and tank filled, in chicagoland area. Wondering if any one got a better deal?
I got so much help from here and thought would share my research. I know, week of 9/23/2007 would be a better time to buy as it is the final of the qtr, when they would like to meet the incentive targets.
Invoice (* items are negotiable)
Dealer hold Back: 766 *
Whlsale Finance: 388 **
Premium Pkg: 1,120
Heatedats & RS: 532
Tow Pkg: 128
Cargo Mats: 55
Wheel Lock: 41
Toyota Advt: 582 ***
Note: They said invoice for the above pkg is $37,561.
Navigation Invoice quote was: $40,659
* - Money Dealer gets back from Toyota after the sale
** - Money Dealer gets if you make a credit application
*** - One dealer said it is $515. Dont know if this is something you can negotiate or may be not, so marking it starred.
Spoke to all dealers nearby, and provided the dealer's internet managers multiple links from this forum. Here is my list of dealers: Woodfield, , Naperville, Bredemann, McGrath westmont and chicago, Arlington ,Peoria.
I visited few of them and Arligton was the worst in terms of waiting you out and test your patience. I had a very similar experience with Honda in Schaumburg 2 years before. Seen all over the internet that BobRohrman dealerships are bad plus they ripe you off in service. The Peoria Lexus manager was pre-conceived that i would not buy from him since I am calling from chicago area, wheareas i would have bought from him if he had the right price. Come dealers mature - your trick of service etc., is standard requirements from management. Every dealer has to meet the std, if not you are fired.
As for the car - it is made by toyota and no question on quality. It is great!!!!
Save your $39.99 to be spent on "FightingChance". If you were planning to buy do not buy. It does not give the entire break down like the one above. They infact roll up the first 3 items making me beleive that $34,338 is the invoice price. I got tricked into their cut right pre-buying conditions - led me to beleive they know a lot more. The other info they have is easily available in edmunds.com and http://www.carbuyingtips.com

#949 of 5862 08 AWD RX350 Price paid in Seattle
Sep 24, 2007 (10:18 am)
Got tons of help from this forum. Time to give my experience. Just bought the rx350 last weekend from Seattle dealer (not the Bellevue one).
2008 AWD 350
Premium Plus package
Liquid grahite 18" 7 spoke
Heat front seat and rain sensoring wiper
MSRP + Destination: 45,101 + 715 = 45,816
Price paid: 40975 + tax on 9.25% + 50 doc + 180 license = 44,980 (around).
They are very professional and helpful. Just showed my quoted price from another dealer and get the price match immediately. The process is very straighforward, highly recommend them.
Btw, there is an option to install the transparent 3M film paint protection for fron hood. It looks good but charge $1290 on this, does anyone try it before and do you think it is worth it? thanks.
