  • Does anyone have the residual value of the is250 (with premium and 18 inchers for a msrp of 33888) for a 10/12k mile lease? Has anyone asked about the details on Lexus MSD program? What about the 1Pay lease option?
  • I like to know the residual and money factors for IS 250AWD for 24, 36 and 48 months leases at 15k, 18k, and 20k miles. Thank you.
  • Just wanted to let everyone know what a great deal I just got at Wilde Lexus on an IS 350. I took the quote (which was $2000 of invoice) to all of the dealers in southwest Florida and none of them would even match it let alone beat it. I even knew a friend of one of the sales managers at one of the dealerships and he said to get the deal at Wilde if they had the car in stock. (He was a nice enough guy and at least he was honest.) Well they had a black on black without navi that I ended up getting. I even got them to sweeten the pot a little bit with free window tinting. The Internet sales person was awesome and everybody there took good care of a very satisfied customer. I live about 80 miles away so the business manager even gave me an extra 200 miles or so by starting off the beginning mileage on the paperwork at 300 miles instead of the 22 it had. I pick up the car tomorrow, can't wait! Well worth the hour drive, well 45 minutes when I drive that baby home.
  • emadrigal could you tell me which dealer in FL you got this price from. I live in FL and am in the market for the same vehicle NAV wheels loaded with 15k a year. Id like to be able to go in with a bit of ammunition to get the negotiations rolling.

    Thank you

    Hi. Does anyone have an idea what a lease should be on an AWD IS 250, loaded w/ 18", nav, auto? (or a similarly equipped IS). I'm thinking of a 3year-ish lease w/ 15k miles. Thanks from N. VA.

    $0 money down

    $596 monthly payment

    eiji14, I think answered my question in the other forum. It looks like you put the tax in the payment which was the smart thing to do. It also looks like you didn't have to pay a bank fee. I guess Lexus Financial Services doesn't charge it anymore or waived it for you. $816 drive off with $596 monthly payment is a great deal.

    I just leased an IS 250 with $2,500 down, 18k miles per year, and $425/month with the 18' wheels and summer tires option. Did I get a good deal?
  • eiji,

    I live in Chicago and drove the IS350 this week. I am trying to decide if a lease or purchase is better. One variable that I have not made a decision on regards tires. Like Long Island, we have winters in Chicago that would preclude the use of the curiously named "all season" tires from November through March.

    If I lease, I have to buy a set of winter tires that will still have a lot of life on them when the lease expires. Would you mind sharing what you did (or are going to do) regarding tires?

  • I purchased Blizzak LM25's from Woodfield Lexus. They mounted them on my existing wheels, and of course used the TPMS.

    They also stored my summer tires, they'll put them on (for a fee I'm sure) when winter is over... but they'll store the winter tires for me as well.

    I don't mind paying a bit extra for that type of service, and for the peace of mind in knowing that if they break my wheels or the TPMS they'll be responsible. I don't trust local tire shops to do that.

  • I am in the midst of receiving delivery of an IS 250 AWD with Nav and Luxury Package. The dealer is offering a deal of .00265 for money factor and a residual of 59%. Deal is based on no money down with a monthly of approx. $700. It's supposed to be arriving 1/9-1/16 - dealing with McGrath Lexus in Westmont...Any feedback is appreciated.
  • How much is the MSRP and how much is your cap cost? its sounds really HIGH....

    Whats your term ?
    Whats your mileage allowment ?

    For comparison though:
    Audi A4 2 year lease .00080 MF and 70% residual.
    BMW 325I 2 years .00250 MF and 77% residual.

    So, sounds really high to me too..

    this is in response to the person that got the 2500 down is 250 with 18k miles and payment of 425/month. is that with tax included in the monthly? that's awesome. where did you get that deal?
  • eiji14eiji14 Posts: 8

    since i dont really get to drive that much (on my previous g35 coupe, i did about 12k miles in 18 months, or about 7k miles a year) i dont plan on investing $1-2k in a set of winter tires and rims.

    my is350 has 18" summer tires just like my g35c did, so i just wont drive if there's snow on the ground. it wasnt a problem last winter (havent seen snow yet this season) at all, and nyc is usually pretty up to speed at plowing.

    but if the is350 is gonna be ur daily driver, then i think a set of 17's with winter tires will be a good and safe investment.

    hope that helps!

    the .00265 money factor sounds high to me -- but of course that depends on ur credit and the rate that u qualify for.

    .00245 was tier 1 plus and .00255 tier 1 when i inked my deal end of december, so perhaps the rates have change for january.

    i got a is350 with .00245, 62% residual, no money down -- for $596 a month. that's $104/mo lower than ur is250.
  • I just got back form a Lexus Dealer.. I am looking at the is350 sport pkg with Nav. The offer was 580 a month for 36 months with 12K a month. Paying all Tax upfront. but with 0 down. I wanted to know if this was a good deal... The car will be ordered and won't be here untill late Feb. I just wanted to know what everyone thought.. Can I do better
  • Hi kipperm13. You never mentioned the selling price or MSRP of the car that you are interested in leasing. These are important numbers for you as a consumer to know for two reasons. First, the selling prices of leased vehicles can be negotiated, just as if you were paying cash for them. Without knowing this car's selling price in relation to its MSRP you don't know how much of a discount you are getting on it. The second reason is that one needs the selling price and MSRP, including the destination charge, of a vehicle to calculate its lease payment. I would be more than happy to give you my opinion on this deal if you let me know what these numbers are.

    Hey everyone,

    I will be in the market for the new IS 250 rwd sometime in the next 3-4 months. I currently drive a 2000 BMW 328CI and want to get something newer. My question is what would a real good lease price be on a 3 yr 15K mile lease with no money down? Also, if I were to purchase it, any idea on the monthly payment. I would get the base 250 with the manual and premium package only, nothing more. I also lease a 2006 Toyota 4runner, so leasing to me, is common. Does Lexus allow you to buy extra miles at $.10/mile from the beginning like toyota let me do on the 2006 4runner? Sorry for all the questions, I have never leased a Lexus, my family has always bought them.

    Any suggestions would help.

    Thank you,
  • hello car_man..
