I live in Houston, and got the deal from a dealership in Dallas. If you are in the area, or want to deal with them PM me, and I can try to put you in touch with the salesperson I dealt with.
If you don't live in the area, what I did was basically email each dealership I was willing to drive to. I told them all that I was asking for the best price and basically put them in a bidding war. I don't know if it always works, but it did for me this time.
Again PM me if you need more specific info.
For everyone else, the deals are obviously out there.

Lexus of Albuquerque, NM had two Black on Black, 2008 LS460s left this past Sunday. They are loaded at $72K and $76K if memory serves me correctly. On Halloween, I purchased a white 2008 LS460 without Mark Levenson, but with Nav. MSRP was $68,700 and traded in a 2006 LS 430 with 15K miles. Good Luck on your quest.

I did not even know there was a 65K MSRP'd 460... lowest I have ever seen in CA is 69. Why did you end up not buying?
Abq buyer - Albuquerque is such a tough market since there is litterly ZERO competition. I have purchased vehilces in ABQ in the past and its a PITA compared to regions that have some competition. What did you end up paying?
Looks like the 4K rebate is still in effect - are folks buying at invoice - some rebate or?

My deal was a trade-in (2006 LS 430) so I'm not able to tell how much I paid as a cash price. I gave them $12K per year as depreciation and added the difference in the invoice on the old car and the new car. Probably not a good or great deal, but with a trade in it's hard to figure what you really paid. I still believe the LS430 was a quieter car and perhaps more refined after several years of production on the same model. I have double paned glass on the driver and passenger sides. I still notice some road noise, more than the LS430 (in my opinion). The rear window has a reflection glare on it when driving away from the sun. I had tint put on the windows and that seems to cut down on the back window glare. I lost the storage drawers under the driver and passenger seats along with the little drawer in the dash below the CD changer. The ash tray is very small and not useful for anything when removed. The ash tray on the LS430 provided a storage bin when the ash tray was removed. The 8 speed tranny is taking a bit of getting used to, along with the lack of manual parking brake, all improvements that will pay dividends in the future. All in all, I'm beginning to like the new car more as I drive it more.

Thanks for sharing.... It seems like most 430 owners really like'D their 430 and it takes a bit to get used to the 460. I'm trying to decide if I want to go 08 -- or wait and get an 09 when our economy hits full "Depression" and my guess deals will be about the same as they are now once 08's are out of the system.
#306 of 360 got a deal at 50500 +ttl
Nov 15, 2008 (6:11 pm)
just got the 08 ls460 for 50500 no navi if anyone need input on pricing. got it at sterling mccall in houston tx
Nov 16, 2008 (2:26 pm)
locdog - Great data point's -- Tha'ts very nice at 65K MSRP for 50,500 - 14.5 under MSRP is where I'm looking to be as well.
Did you have a hard time getting this deal or was it straight forward? Did you purchase or Lease?
Finally - Why no NAV? I have lots of experience with the Nav in the LS (its the same unit thats in the Sequoia) and I know its a POS so in reality I would probably not go for it in the LS - but wife wants the ML radio so we are stuck with NAV.

Quick is good - I plan to have everything pretty much set when I go to pick out my LS -- all I plan to do is finalize the color and write a check - hoping I can get it done in 2 hours but will see.
