Even I am planning to buy Lexus RX 350 from chicago area. I got quote of around 42000 from McGrath. Could you kindly tell me the name of dealer (if possible sales person also) where you got this price? It will help a lot.

I know I probably have negotiated a little bit more, but it's tough to find an AWD with all the options that we wanted in California. Turns out not many people here want AWD. We're from the Northeast and I'm in the military, so you never know where we'd end up. Ordered it from Lexus in Carlsbad. Called ahead and let them know the price I wanted, salesperson was great. From in the door in the showroom to out the door, paperwork in hand: one hour exactly. Great buying experience. We pick it up some time next week.

I bought my RX 350 from Lexus in Glendale, CA. I paid $301 for License and another $28 for Elctronic filing to DMV. I see that you paid only $49? Was I overcharged for the License? But, when I got my registration in mail I saw on the registration card that the fee paid was $301. So, I think that is correct fee and may be you got a reduced fee on your purchase.
Anyways, please let me know.

THIS IS ABOUT THE SAME PRICE I PAID FOR MINE IN CALIF AND SINCE I BROUGHT IT, I FEEL LIKE I PAY ABOUT 2,000 TOO MUCH. INFORMATION ABOUT MY CAR IS #915, THE CAR WAS BROUGHT LOADED. GOOD LUCK WITH YOURS.

No, I'm a New York State resident, so I received a discount on the license fee. Non-resident registration as active duty military. I'm pretty happy with the deal. I probably could have negotiated a little bit more (all weather mats, maybe another couple hundred). But it was the car that we wanted and I liked the sales guy.
