    I'm looking to lease an AWD GS350 in CA. It seems like they're hard to come by because I've been having the hardest time finding one. Has any had a good experience leasing an AWD in CA? If so, would you mind sharing? Thanks.

    Can you share dealer name and CA contact info?
    I am in LA and would love to take advantage of the same deal.

    I've been negotiating a lease and wonder if this is a good deal. It's for a 27 month lease with 12,000 miles per year. Money factor and residual are 0.001 and $39,911 (which is either 72% or 68% depending on whether its calculated on MSRP or the selling price, not sure)

    $58,617 MSRP

    $55,657 Selling price

    $3500 due at signing and $649.38 per month (includes tax)

    The car is equipped with F Sport package, HDD navigation, Mark Levinson, park assist, blind spot monitor. Color is nebula gray pearl with black F Sport leather.

    Is this a good deal? Any room for further negotiation?

    You're very welcome kbest1. What selling price is the dealer using to arrive at this payment?

    Hi joegolfs. Lexus Financial Services' June buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 GS 350 with 15,000 miles per year in your area are .00095 and 57% for consumers who qualify for its Tier 1+ credit tier.

    If you need to drive more than 15,000 miles per year, you will probably have to purchase additional miles on a per-mile basis. It is usually less expensive to do so at lease signing than it is to wait until lease-end and have to pay an excess mileage penalty.

    i got a similar deal for $1500 down (same color combo) for $528 (including tax). Maintenance was not included so that may be the difference?
  • cvr787cvr787 Posts: 4
    I have no idea what the maintenance deal is worth but the difference in payment over the 27 months is approx $1,134. I feel like its a pretty good deal but not sure whether it's a great deal. I think they're pretty close to actual invoice but again not entirely sure.
  • jadcamjadcam Posts: 5
    i think i was quoted $895 - $995 for the maintenance package which i turned down. After tax and interest, i think you're right there.
  • kainnyckainnyc Posts: 76
    I would have to say not bad, but not to good, bc I was told today that there trying to get rid of them and are taking all reasonable offers! So I asked him tell me some numbers he said 499$, 2500$ due, 12k miles on the 56k model luxury! Calculate zero across the board and it should be no more than 599$ IMO! Ps if you wait till August when the new model year shows up, I bet you can find it for 499-549$ zero across the board.
  • kainnyckainnyc Posts: 76
    Actually I see I missed the price difference so it's a pretty good deal good luck

    Avoid the maintenance package and take the car to a local shop for all the ones you have to pay for. That's the best value. They can't legally void a warranty for not servicing your car at the dealership.

    Hi All,

    I've looked at these forums hundreds of times and always find valuable info so i wanted to share my most recent lease.

    Just signed the following deal today:

    2013 GS350 - MSRP 54,000
    equipped with Premium and Luxury Pkg.
    $2000 down
    27 month lease with 10,000 miles per year
    $525/month including taxes.

    I think i got a pretty good deal. I'm going from a Mercedes E350 to the Lexus. I was looking at the Audi A6 also, but decided on Lexus because they gave me a better deal on a better equipped car.

    Hope this helps!

    I am not getting numbers close to what I am seeing here.
    What is the MF and residual for 15K miles 27 months..

    this is what I am getting:
    It is based on $1,500 below invoice pricing:
    Rolling in $2,000 plus another $400 for estimated dispo fee (total of $2,400 rolling in)
    $1,500 total out of pocket (includes first month payment)
    $717 per month
    36 month lease
    MSRP of car is $56,353

    It seems to be $100 off a month from what I am seeing even with rolling in $2400!!
    I need some help here and I am based in NJ ny area..
  • that does seem high, play hard ball and tell them you aren't looking to spend $600.

    Post the MF and residual used if you can.
