    I am in SG valley, and is kind of opposite here these days. there are tons of e350 and 528/535 bmws.

    the last gen GS was a big hit as one see them everywhere. but the new one has not been doing so well so far, hence Lexus is really pushing it.

    all of the above are nice cars. however, the GS350 is the best value, imho.

    btw, thx to your price reference, helped my in-laws, and got them a deal of $541 incl tax, happy in-laws/wife, happy life, which means more toys for me, lol. few things are certain in LA, sunshine, smog and great car lease deals

    The more that I drive the car, the better I like it. Getting use to the mouse to do things is a little weird, but when you get used to it, it is very simple. Handling is excellent, especially for a car this size. My wife loves the way it rides.
    Coming from an IS 350, it took a few days to get used to the size of the GS. I would recommend this car to anyone.

    Awesome. I'm trying to get the f sport for. 27mo lease. Best deal I got so far is $1000 down and $565/mo. What do you guys think? I love the f sport and my gf wants the base or luxury model which is a lot cheaper right? And this is for 15k miles per yer

    I would shoot for zero down and about 565 to 575 per month. that would be on about a 58,000 car. Go with the F Sport. I went in to get a luxury and came out with an F Sport. Very,Very glad I did, and I am 65 years old!
    If you are in Ca, there is a $2500 incentive that should pay for your 1st month payment, license and all of your fees. It should also reduce your capitalized cost by around $1250. Just sign and drive, the only way to go!

    I am in Orange County, CA. I have been quoted the following quote on a 2013 Lexus GS-F without Mark Levinson:
    - 36 months, 12K / Year
    - MSRP = $58,192.00
    - Selling Price = $53,224.00 + Plus fees & Tax = $58,074.65
    - Down Payment = $649.00
    - Monthly Payment = $628.00
    - Money Factor = .00100
    - Residual = 58% = $33,751.00

    I am trying to get clarification as to whether the factory rebate of $2,500.00 has been included in the selling price. Does not seem like this is a good price in comparison to some of the other deals I see here. Can any of you please mention the names of dealerships in So. Cal. you have gone to?

    Thanks so much
  • I got my best quote from mission veijo Lexus and my worse quote from newport Lexus. Ppl on this forum have been seeing good deals at woodland hills if youre willing to drive. You can do much better than the del you're mentioning
  • skip30skip30 Posts: 33
    Woodland Hills Lexus. Ask for Keith. Straight shooter, no bs kind of guy. Excellent to deal with! No stupid games. You can make the deal in minutes, sign the paperwork and drive off in your new car. Very simple transaction! Good Guy!
  • art, since you are in OC, call Hugh at Newport, tell him Will from LA send you there. based on those numbers, the store held on some, may be all of $2500. plus they marked up the MF. nothing wrong as they need to make something. but those numbers can be improved

    Thanks Blinkn09 and everyone else for your inputs.

    Blinkn09, did you end up purchasing yours at Mission Viejo? Would you be able to tell me the deal that you got again. I am sorry, but I am new to this forum, but find it extremely helpful. Yet, I have not been able to navigate around it too well. Thanks so much.

    I am a novice when it comes to cars so any help will be greatly appreciated. In a few hours, I will get a GS350 in Los Angeles. The optional items are blind spot monitor, 18" wheels, HDD navigation, Park Assist, Premium Package (heated / ventilated seats, etc.). Total MSRP $53,387. The final offer I got was $1,100 down, $475 per month (including tax), 36 months, 10k miles per year. Is this a decent deal? Thanks a lot.
  • skip30skip30 Posts: 33
    With 0 down, it would be an OK deal. Most people in LA are paying $550 a month and zero down for cars with an msrp of about $58,600. That includes tax.
  • not too bad. which dealer gave you those numbers?
  • qualtovqualtov Posts: 2
    Both Beverly Hills and Santa Monica gave me the same numbers as they continuously matched each other. I tried to get another $300 off from one for downpayment but they were not interested. I am going to lease it now unless someone has heard of a better deal. I am not sure I understand how to read skip30's reply as far as "most people in LA" concerned. Kinda hard to compare as that deal had $75 more per month for 3 years, which comes to $2,700 but no downpayment so is $1,600 more than my deal but for a car that is probably $5k more expensive than mine. Not sure about residual difference between these cars but it looks like he got a great deal but not for the car I am looking at assuming he is talking about F series. He says "cars" so if he is talking about any car at that range, I know for a fact that Audi has much lower residual value and, hence, much steeper monthly payments.
  • i did a quick math, and your deal is not bad. though the car is $5k more( yes, he got a sport), but you are paying to use only portion of it. basically you are residualizing the ~60% of the $5k. so again rough math, the $2000/36 is $55 difference. without getting my finan calculator, with $0 drive off, you should be at ~495-500 with tax
  • skip30skip30 Posts: 33
    Sorry I didn't make it more clear. I was only talking about Lexus GS350s. I should have been more clear about that!

    On a side note, I was actually offered $5 a month less on a 27 month lease, but I wanted a 36 month because I paid for the license for the whole year and when the lease is up, the new models will only be a month away.

    My car is an F-Sport that had an msrp of $58617. That seems to be what most of them msrp for in SoCal.
  • Hi. Does anyone know when the 2013 GS order book will close?

  • Car_man -- What is the current MF and Residual for 2013 Lexus GS Lease in New Jersey? I've been reading around and it seems that you can get the F sport for $33500, is that possible in NJ? Also, what about just the premium package with Navigation (MSRP $56)?

    Thanks for your help!

    I'm sorry, but it doesn't look like we'll have the Lexus lease numbers for August.
