2007 Toyota Camry

    Manufacturers invoice price + Advertising Cost = Dealers Invoice.

    In the Pac NW, that advertising number is $514.

    At Fitzmall, it calculates to be $457.

    Thought I wanted the Bisque (tan) interior but saw one on a Barcelona Red XLE today.

    Looked terrible because the seats are tan (didn't look at the door panels) but everything else (console, dash, carpet) is the same as on the Ash (gray) interior.

    As if the wrong seats had been dropped into the car.

    Disappointing so I will go with Ash Leather.

    "The new Camry is simply not in the same class as the Acura TL."

    Maybe not the Camry SE. However, the XLE might be (or pretty darn close). In reality the Camry is not suppose to be in the same class. It's a mass produced vehicle attempting to satisfy what many average American (and some Canadian) buyers would like to purchase. The TL does not fall in that category (nor should it). I think it's a complement to Toyota that some are actually comparing it to the TL (and not the Accord). What may appear as a flaw is likely a marketing strategy by Toyota. The bottom line is simple, it's your money and choice.

    You may want to contact Thompson Toyota or Tri County Toyota in Pennsylvania. They each have one 4 cylinder XLE with nav, leather, heated seats, vehicle stability control, floor mats, for $28,544.00 and $28,758.00 respectively. The second one has the Z1 package, the first one the CF option. Aloe green and Black. Good luck in trying to get either of these two cars from these dealers. They are either pre-ordered for the GM's wife's demos or have already been pre-sold. Tell them Mackabee sent you!

    What a deal!!!!!!!!!

    $26,000 - 26,200 for these in Seattle area.

    Easy njerald. I was quoting MSRP's. It's up to tidewater to negotiate his price. If that's what they are going for in Seattle knock yourself out and buy one. I'm just providing some information since tidewater is in my area.

    If youwantaTL, go to Chicago. It's much more competitive there than St. Louis.

    I do appreciate your passing on the info on those two Camrys Mackabee. From the option descriptions, it sounds like option combination #3 (in Seattle, Wash region) from 'build your vehicle'. I actually heard from another local dealer there were two XLE 4SP with NAV in our region (1 Black 1 White). Since there are only two XLE's 4SP in the entire region currently, I think it'd be nearly impossible for me to get such a current car directly from a dealer. Hence, I'll probably special order.

    I am a fairly slow buyer, and will probably wait around a few more weeks before placing an order. Other than that one brief visit to a local dealer, I have not really pursued this. From the comments posted here, I believe that I will be able to get the car I want for around $500 to $600 above invoice.

    I am thrilled with all the new features on the new 2007!

    Right now I'm thinking:
    Camry XLE 4SP, VSC, Heated & Leather Seats, NAV,
    Desert Sand if the beige interior looks good.
    I would prefer to get non-heated cloth seats, but I'm guessing that Toyota will not provide that configuration.
    Would like to avoid the Z1 package

    As you can tell, I from the Tidewater area, like yourself.

    You must be thrilled njerald!

    Good job on your quotes. My guess is that numerous people on the boards are using the pricing information that you just came up with. As in my last post, I'd like to get an XLE 4SP configured under the Washington region Option #3.

    Can I ask you one more time which model/configuration/color you are going to order?

    Now I hope your order goes smoothly, and something doesn't go wrong during that time while waiting for the order, and that you don't have to pay any unreasonable doc fees or prep fees. I like to deal with someone where I'm very confident the sale transaction will go perfectly smoothly.

    Congrats on getting a good deal rolling!

    Hey njerald,

    Do you think the Bisque is that bad?

    I wanted the Bisque (tan interior) because I getting very tired of the grey, and I just don't see how the yellow wood is going to go with the grey. I sat in a 2006 Avalon with a tan interior - I liked it better than grey. I was also told that the Avalon's wood trim color (which I think looks great) is also same color on the 2007 Camry (This seems untrue and I think Camry wood is lighter - more yellow).

    Here is Grey/wood interior 2007 XLE

    I'm going to get Option 2. Everything except NAV.

    I'll buy floormats, spoiler, pedal covers, etc. after at 70% of dealer cost and install myself.

    Going to add dual exhaust the same way as they did it on the V6 model. I like the symmetrical look of them.

    Titanium Metallic/Ash Color.

    $24,843 + tax and license.

    I didn't think the light wood looked too bad with the grey. Saw it on a Black XLE today. Same as the pic you referenced.

    If the Console, dash and carpet were Bisque, I think it would look good but they look the same as on the Ash interior. So you have a 3 or 4 tone interior with the bisque, and that's one color too much for me.

    Maybe the carpet was a brownish color but definitely not tan.

    It is definitely NOT color coordinated. More like a Yugo.

    It Toyota truly has a grey (Ash) console with tan seats - that would be terrible - and I would definity go with Ash. (I'm just having trouble believing Toyota would actually do that). I agree that the Camry light wood color is not too bad with the Ash color. But wish Camry would use the Avalon wood color.

    Maybe that's why Toyota refuses to print any photos of the bisque interior.

    Where are you going to get all that stuff at 70% off?
  • tidewatertidewater Posts: 69
    I noticed that also! There are no photos I could find on the web of the Bisque interior.
  • njeraldnjerald Posts: 688
    I'm glad I saw it before I ordered it.

    Sat (front and back)in the Ash one but couldn't even get past the open door with the Bisque.

    Maybe that's why there are not many pics with the Bisque interior.

    Plenty of front headroom for me (6'2") but my head would touch the headliner if I leaned back in the back seat.

    Check it out at a dealer and let me know what you think.

    The XLE I test drove had the bisque cloth interior and the dash was not gray, unless I was totally oblivious that day, and so was my husband. Or is it only the leather that is the concern?
  • njeraldnjerald Posts: 688
    Can get the 2007 Camry OEM floor mats now on EBAYfor $95 delivered which is probably too much. W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ33697QQitemZ8045685942QQrdZ1QQsspagenameZWDVW

    Thje rest will be on EBAY or at a number of dealers who sell Toyota parts and accessories online at below retail discounts.

    Shipping is normally a push with my state sales tax being avoided.
  • njeraldnjerald Posts: 688
    The dash has a lighter lower section that is a more neutral color and then the upper is a darker gray as I recall.

    It is not like my LHS which has a tan dash, tan carpet, tan seats, tan door skins, tan leather steering wheel and tan behind the back seats with medium color wood accents.
