Hey new2leasing5...I worked with the 'internet manager' (as well as the 'internet sales director') at Santa Monica Lexus. I had a few quotes from other area dealerships and they matched the best quote I had. They were really great to work with and kept to their word. All of my contact with them was via email and I just signed the docs when I arrived at the dealership for pickup. It was a really seamless process.

Thanks - this is super helpful! If you don't mind me asking, the dealer was asking if you had a grad or military discount, or some other discount that they applied for you? He's trying to look for a similar deal to get me the same numbers, but doesn't have your first/last initials to look up the info.

Not a problem. No grad or military discount but there was some type of Lexus dealer cash/incentive that was included.

Thanks superceleb! Unfortunately the money factor increased and the deal changed slightly, but I was able to get the same for $299 tax inclusive. I can't complain here either - they got me in and out within 1hr. I really appreciate your help - saved me $2000 in the long run!

Sure! Glad you were able to work out a deal. The internet team at SaMo Lexus really seems to have it together. It definitely simplifies the process when you can work out the numbers beforehand.

I was not able to get such good deals yet, santa monica lexus offered 319$ + tax, zero down.
Looking for 299 tax included then I ll join the ct200 family.
Does it differ every month for lease or the dealer is just bs-ing about next month being different deals ?

The programs can vary from month to month - that is the prerogative of the manufacturer.
Almost all of the lease offers are exclusive of tax, even the $299/mo offer on the CT200h from Lexus. That's because every state (county, city, etc.) has a different tax rate around the country. And, some states tax (Illinois comes to mind) the entire transaction price of the vehicle, rather than just the depreciated amount.
