Any one who have recently purchased RX350 with DVD Navigation System with Neptune Blue Color. I am in Bay area and would like to know at what price did you get and from which dealer. I live in SantaClara, California.
I visited one of the dealers and they told me that it would take 4-6 weeks for the delivery.

Any insight to this would be appreciated!

    Even though I'm from the Bay Area, I ended up buying in Roseville (out of Sacramento). Got a Bamboo 2007 RX 350, premium plus, 18 inch wheels, tow pkg (everything "according to the dealer" except Mark Levinson sound or back seat DVD) for $41k. I was surprised they were willing to deal since it only just came out.
    Love the car after ten days of ownership. Only beef is with the bluetooth and the phone. Works unreliably. Must have a phone on the compatibility list.
  • rajftprajftp Posts: 3
    That is a very good deal. Is this AWD/FWD? Which dealer in Sacramento did you buy from?

    Raj :blush:
  • 831cruzer831cruzer Posts: 7
    AWD! Lexus of Roseville. They only had 4 to choose from (3 black and one bamboo). We went in saying we wanted $5K under MSRP. Had to go back and forth 3 times. First time they came back with MSRP, we got up to leave, said we could look in the bay area. Second time they asked us if we were Costco member and were about $2700 under MSRP then last time we settled. I liked them all in all. No hard sell at the finance time with extended warranty or extras.
    Good luck!

    I leased a 350 AWD (PP/Nav) from Pleasanton last month.
    Got it for $41,260, MSRP was $46,583.

    But I will be going to Roseville to sell my old car to Carmax since trade-in I was quoted at the Pleasanton dealer was too low.

    Had to wait 5 days to get the Breakwater Blue unit that I wanted.
    Drove to SoCal this week-end. It's a sweeeet ride!:D Specially once you do the Nav Hack and can play with all the Nav functions even when the car is in motion.

    Has anyone had success getting the handsfree feature to work? The dealer did not say we had to have certain phone &/or carrier. I just got this phone in April and it works sporadically when synced with the bluetooth. All of a sudden my cell will start dialing the car for no reason.
    Taking it in tomorrow. I told them since they didn't give me a disclaimer AND I haven't filled out my JD Edwards satisfaction survey yet.....
    Other than that I Love the car.

    Works perfectly with my Verizon Motorola E815--had to delete other Bluetooth devices from phone, i.e. my ear piece. So I have Bluetooth whenever I drive this car, but need to reenter my ear piece and delete Lexus Bluetooth from my phone--and vice-versa when I drive the Lexus RX350. I am sure there are better Bluetooh phones out there.

    Is NAV included?
  • 831cruzer831cruzer Posts: 7
    Nav Included. Neat feature. couldn't live w/o it now. BTW, the dealer (Roseville) made good on the bluetooth phone. They are buying me a new phone that will work with the handsfree (so they say). Haven't rec'd the phone yet. but will let you know. See Aloha Robert if you decide to buy from them. He gave a 90 minute intro to all the features of my car when I bought it.
    Good luck.

    Wow, that's a great price. Too bad, I am far away. Anyway, I am trying to talk to the Dealers near by to see if they want to match.
    Thanks for the info.

    Is it worht waiting to December to buy a new Lexus RX 350 for the "December to Remember" event? Do you really see a savings? If so how much typically?

    I am not in a hurry to purchase and could wait until the end of the year.

    I have never purchased a lexus before so any input is helpful.
  • If you refer to post #3, I purchased the "level 3" Bamboo Pearl AWD in Sacramento, California. (Lexus of Sacramento...they also own Lexus of Roseville). I paid $41,500 plus tax, license, tire fee and $45 doc fee. Invoice is listed at $41,262. This is the 2nd vehicle I have purchase there. So far after 2 days, I still love it :) The navigation is cool. I could do without the DVD Player (which is the Mark Levinson pkg). Figure I could buy a portable one and have the kid hold it or put it between the 2 front seats.
    :)
  • The key is that you are in no hurry. I hear the best times to purchase are at the end of the month. If you go in there knowing how much over invoice you want to pay, stick REALLY close to it. They'll do all they can to please you.....and you don't have to wait until December. I bet they are trying their last push to sell more inventory by year-end.

    I paid $39,762 for a RX350 with NAV in bamboo color from Putnam Lexus in Redwood City, CA. It was $1,500 below the California Invoice and about $6,820 below CA MSRP. Contact Gina Morales 1-650-381-3130. Good luck.
  • lvn098lvn098 Posts: 26
    Patwong: #39,762 is an unbelievable price, I wish I could do the same. I assume this is not AWD, right?
    The lowest I've got was $41,375 for a FWD, NAV and PP+
  • I've heard so many great things about the RX 350, but when I test drove it, the positioning for the arm rest was very uncomfortable. Having it connected to the seat and not part of the center console, made it awkward for me. I'm a 6'1", 230 pound male. Does anyone feel the same? I don't drive leaning excessively to the side, but like to have the option of leaning a little bit on long trips.
  • maximafanmaximafan Posts: 592
    I agree with you, Albjduggan. I wish that
    the center console was higher up so it can
    be used for resting the arm on it like most
    cars and SUV's. It slides back and forth,
    which is very nice, but I would prefer having
    no armrest connected to the seat
    (too mini-vanish) and have the center console
    set higher up.
  • I live in the Texas Panhandle and am considering buying a FWD RX350. I've gotten a couple of quotes, and the dealers are essentially offering $40,500 for one with Premium Plus, Heated Seats and Rain Sensing Wipers, Tow Prep, and Trailer Hitch (one is coming down about a $1,000 more, but recouping that on my trade in). That's about $1,500 off of MSRP and $3,500 over invoice. Anyone have experience in NM, Ok City, DFW Metroplex, Austin, San Antonio or West Texas to give me an idea on what I should pay?

    I just purchased a RX350 with Premium Plus and Nav0agation. All of the dealers in the Southwest bring in the same accessory pkg for a Navagation equipped RX350.
    I paid before tax $41,200 and was quoted $38,300 for one with the Premium Pkg etc - the base RX350 as above all have the same accessories ie 18"wheels etc. Suggest you go to Lexus.com and send an email to the Lexus dealers in the areas you mention, then get invoice prices from Edmunds.com so you know what invoice is. You should be able to purchase for $1,200 + above invoice. Be sure and email Sewell in Dallas & Northpark in San Antonio. Good Luck. On my purchase the dealer agreed to trade the tires from Goodyear Eage to Michelin which only comes on 4 wheel/all wheel drive models.
