    Thanks for the info Steve! I'm the car buyer for my family, so I do the dirty work of e-mailing different dealers and checking to see what people are paying :)

    I actually like the car shopping experience... Especially when it is someone else's money :)

    I was using 2014 RX350 FWD with base of $40,795 plus navigation package of 8,094 and destination fee of 910 to get to the $49,799

    Actually now that I'm looking at the Lexus build site again. It is bundling other options into the price of $8,094 the package codes are (FT,WU,NV,TO,CP,EK,PA)

    Ah, the bundling explains why I was so far off in my quick and dirty searching.

    The world needs more guys like you. B)

    Actually I heavily shopped new and used cars the last two months for the first time since 1999 (I purchased a used car in '03, but that was a friend to friend deal and was no hassle). Anyway I have to say, the experience was really good. In '99 we finally found a good Nissan salesperson, but the Honda dealer jacked us around pretty good and we weren't even able to stop the car in the lot at Cal Worthington Ford before several salespeople started chasing our car (we kept rolling, lol).

    This time around, the 10 or so salespeople were all pretty good. One was too green to know anything and one was a bit stereotypical, but not bad. Several were exceptional.

    This is the 6th year since major upgrade. Is there any news on the 2016
    RX350?

    All I've seen for sure is just the "mid 2014" redesign for the 2015 model.

    Could be a 7 seater coming, per Autoblog.com.

    The 2014 model lost some incentives.. .00170 MF and 58% residual for 36mo, 15K/yr. But, they now have $2500 dealer cash.

    What would be a price to pay for a 2015 rx350 for the base model of $40,795. this based in DFW.
    If the invoice price is 38k, how much should I ask for the car, does 1k sound enough commission for the salesman ?

    Dealer is offering 42,600 for 2015 RX350 FWD w/ premium, wood/leather trim, cargo mat, net, wheel lock & key glove, cross bars. Is this a good deal ?

    Looking for a 2015 RX350 AWD with premium package, blind spot monitoring, comfort package, heated seats, preferred accessories, all weather mats, wood trim steering wheel. MSRP is $47,698. What would be a good price to pay in Missouri? Is 10% off MSRP possible? I noted above that someone in PA paid $42,600 for a similar car/MSRP at Wilkie. That seems to be a great deal. Is it possible to pay below the dealer's invoice?

    It certainly is possible. My strategy is to never focus on what the dealer's invoice price is but focus on your budget which is normally at least 10% off MSRP for me. Set your first asking price to 15% off MSRP and the salesperson will probably think you're nuts. Keep your budget number in mind and don't go above it. Negotiate as much as you can until they come down to your budget. If they can't meet your budget, move on to the next dealer and bid out your business. Let the next dealer know what the previous dealer's offer was and have them beat it. It helps to have all dealers offers in writing. The more dealers you visit, the better chance you have to get a price at your budget or even lower which was my case. The dealers are there to compete against each other so make them compete!

  • Yes, it can be done. The more dealerships in your area that have your desired vehicle on the lot the better. Contact the internet sales/fleet department of all your area dealers and have them bid for your business.

    @draganer, another way to go is to start at invoice and go up.

    Invoice is widely available and it's a good target, but remember than dealers can sell below invoice and still make money (thanks to holdback and bonus and incentive money from the manufacturers).

    Your walking out technique is a good one too.

  • Hi,
    I'm looking to get a 2015 RX 350 in the next few days and am a bit confused on which options to choose for what I'm looking for and what the best price would be. I'm looking to deal with either Santa Monica Lexus, Beverly Hills Lexus, or Torrance Lexus in CA most likely, whichever gives me the best deal (hearing SM has been good this last week). Hoping someone here can help? Here's what I'm looking for:

    Pearl white exterior
    White or light tan interior
    Leather seats
    leather/wood trim
    heated/ventilated front seats
    navigation system
    CD 5 or 6 changer? Can't tell if this is included in standard model or in some extra package

    I'm looking to buy not lease, so purchase price out the door is what I'm looking for to be prepared. Option of trading in my 2004 RX 330, depending on what they'd give vs if I sold privately, and I'm not sure if in CA the trade-on lowers the sales tax on the 2015 or not but I'm guessing not! Thanks in advance

    Heh, Cars.com says "the amount of the trade in allowance will be deducted from the sales prices of the vehicle you purchase." Zacks.com says "there is no credit or sales tax reduction when you trade in a car."

    Both links are specifically talking about California. Don't see an easy answer at dmv.ca.gov. You could call them or ask your salesperson.

    You can go to the Make|Model|Year dropdown tabs above and look for "Build With Options" (or check out the Price Promise links). The Build With Options link will tell you the invoice and MSRP cost of the various options. You'll have to click the info links to find out if your audio system of choice is a single or multiple CD player. I didn't see any CD listed for the base model but sometimes that info is best found in a review or at the Lexus.com site.

    At some point in that exercise you'll see what TMV is and that will be the price to beat. At this time of year, you should be able to beat TMV handily, unless your local dealers have already met their annual quotas.

    The easiest thing may be to ask for quotes from your local dealers and when they respond you can inquire about the CD and the trade-in situation.

  • Thanks so much stever, I am getting quotes with correct options from 2 dealers now so I will try the TMV and see how it compares and post back with offers if I need more help. Dealer said trade-in does not reduce sales tax price :/.

    Sounds like California. :D

    Love that place but can't afford to live there (and all my wife's relations down in San Diego moved, darn it).

    We offer Live Help too so feel free to call or text or chat with our Live Advice team starting Friday (we're off for the holiday today and Chrismas Day). It's free and a good way to get some feedback if you're at the dealer by yourself.
