  • I recently test drove a new?? auto at a dealership(it was displayed in front of the show room window with a new window price sticker)At the end of negotiations, pricing established, I was told the auto had 4700 miles on it (I didn't even check the mileage when I drove it, afterall, I was told it was a new auto, 2006.) The auto was a demo from the dealership. Are they required by law to display a demo sticker on the car?
  • the sticker was 46,174.
  • the sticker was 46,174.00
  • I have an uncle in NY who's looking for one, but he doesn't want AWD. Says that the NY Dealers tell him all they can get are AWD...

    So, how far south would one have to go to find RWD? Or is this going to be another 'Toyota makes it on paper, but doesn't put it into cars?'

    Last week I purchased a 2007 GS 350 AWD in Cerntral Jersey.

    MSRP: $51,967 (Nav & ML)
    Paid: $48,500 (not including tax, tags, or title)
    Discount $3467

  • NC we have all RWD. MD has AWD, don't know about Virginia.
  • Thanks! VA dealer emailed me that they don't have RWD and it would be special order...just as I figured.

    NC it is.
  • Just got a new Lexus GS300 from Lexus Westminster.

    MSRP was 46,174

    Got it for 39,800 before fees.
  • Picked up a 2007 GS 350 AWD with Nav and all-weather mats yesterday in Northern Jersey.

    MSRP: $49,281
    Negotiated: $45,500 before tax, tags, title, documentation fee, window etching fee (what a load of crap!)
    Out the door: $49,622.
  • $49,281 seems like a very low MSRP for a 2007 GS 350 with Nav. Are you sure??? 2006 stickers were over $50,000.
  • Just starting the negotiation process for 350 AWD with Nav and Mark Levinsion--sticker is ~52K.

    First 2 dealers have offered 50.5 and 49.5 with minimal negotiation. Talking to a couple more dealers this weekend.
  • Yes, that's what it says on my window sticker. Feel free to verify yourself at the Lexus website -> build your own vehicle.

    Here's a paste from there - in the ballpark, couple of hundred difference.

    Base MSRP* $46,100.00
    • Standard Features

    Available Packages $2,626.00
    • Lexus voice-activated DVD Navigation System with backup camera with Additional Options


    Accessory Options $0.00

    Delivery, Processing & Handling Fee† $715.00

    Total MSRP** $49,441.00

    :mad: I am rather p***ed off at the salesman now. We test drove the fully loaded version but we opted for the package with just Nav because he told us the only difference between what we got and the "next package up" was the Mark Levinson premium sound system. Turns out we're missing a few other options - the most important (to me) of which is the park assist. Really had my heart set on that.
  • Reading through these messages I realized the 2006 GS 300/430 pricing is now a mute issue because it's been heavily impacted by the new 2007 GS 350.

    Why? You buy this luxury car for performance, quality and residual value. Well Lexus, in a complete brain cramp, released the new GS350, with 22% more HP, for the same price as the old GS300. Problem is it beats the GS 300 and actually matches the GS 430 in 0 - 60 MPH time.

    So WHY ON EARTH would you buy a 2006 GS 300 when you can get a GS 350 for the same price? Why buy a GS 430 at all unless you just felt like paying $8K more for a heavier car with less horsepower & worse gas mileage. Not to smart a move by Lexus.

    Then comes residual value. Items not in strong demand have lower buying prices (simple economics). Now that I've a performance inferior 2006 GS, I've to quickly try to sell it before everyone realizes that Lexus really doesn't understan customer loyalty.

    If Lexus had any common sense they would have waited until 2007 to release the new body style, with the DRAMATICALLY better V-6 rather than knowingly stick it to the 2006 buyers who made the mistake of trusting Lexus.

    If you bought for performance, quality and residual ... you got one-third of it - quality. Oh, what a feeling!

    I am interested in leasing a GS350AWD with Nav. From what I read here it looks like they can be purchased for around $45,500. (Or could I do better).Does anyone know what Money Factor Lexus will use? I would do a $2,500 Cap Cost reduction and want a 36 month lease. How do they calculate the residual? Believe it would be 50-53% of original MSRP for this lease length. Any help appreciated. Lastly, I would have thought there would have been more activity on this board for this vehicle-I have looked at dealer sites in the NY and Northern NJ areas and inventory levels are rising. This should translate to some competetive pricing.
    Thanks again.
  • You cannot get the 07 for the same price as the 06...
  • I purchased a new 2006 GS430 a couple of weeks ago. In conversation with the finance manager he indicated that Lexus had a apecial on leasing, money factor of triple zero, .000--.
    Don't know if they are still offering it now. It may have applied only to 2006.

    Anyone come across a 300 or 350 without a sunroof? I'm headroom challenged, wish I could get one. I lucked into an ES300 w/o one years ago...
  • texasestexases Posts: 5,617
    How'd your Texas purchase work out? I'm in Dallas, starting to look.
  • bartalk3bartalk3 Posts: 692
    I don't think you'll ever find a GS w/o a sunroof. You could order one direct from the factory, but you'd have a heck of a time selling or trading it.
  • Well I purchased a GS300 awd but should have waited for the
    GS350, It is a nice car although the (GS300) I had some problems with noises in the cabin that they still have not
    fix yet. The deal was $47,250.00 Loaded ML/Nav. AWD in March.
    Buy the GS350 it's a better deal.

    I leased a new 2007 GS 350 yesterday, October 14, 2006, here in Miami, Florida. Purchase price was $2,000 over invoice. BUT, there was a difference between what I saw on Kelly Blue Book (KBB.com) totalling $552.00. The dealer claimed it was for "advertisin." Candidly, I don't know if that is true, as I have not researched it yet, but I went ahead with the deal despite this. Additionally, I would note they would not budge on the doc fees, which were $698 - fluff, if you ask me. Then there was a lease acquisition fee of $600.00. So in the end, I'm not sure how great a deal it was. Even still, I felt the deal was more than what I expected. I suspect I might have gotten it for $1,500 over invoice had I held out, but, my time is money, and the longer I was there, the more money I lost, as the work I do is by the hour. So, it somewhat balanced out for me.

    Leasing rate with Lexus was .00265 for 36 months. Residual was 53%

    In any event, that's my two cents.

  • Hi, I am new at this car buying thing so I need all the help I can. I was looking at the 2006 GS 300 and absolutely love it. I noticed that the 2007 came out with GS350. I was wondering what can I expect the 2006 to drop for? I called one dealer in New Orleans and was told that they will not being doing any discounts even at the end of the year. I am willing to hold off until January if it gives me a better deal. Also, any advice on car shopping would be great. What kind of questions should I be asking in regards to price? Thank You
  • A 53% residual on a three year lease? Seems really low. Is that standard for GS?
  • Last Wed, I put a deposit down on GS350 with ML/Navi, etc. MSRP $51451
    Purchase price $47600+title, tax, tags, etc.
    Dealership in Alexandria VA :)
  • OK - Here's my deal:

    2007 GS350 AWD with Nav,Vent seats & preferred accessory package MSRP of 49,262.
    Invoice = 44,000
    My price = 44999 + the usual
    36 month, 15K lease = 704/month with 8400 down (5800 sec)

    I have used all the calcualtors, but I have no idea if this is a good lease deal or not. Please help!
  • I am looking at a 2007 Lexus GS 350 in the Dallas area. I was wondering if anyone knows what the current residual value and money factor are for a 2007 GS 350, 15k miles per year (36, 42 and 48 months). Thank you.
  • Phoenix area. Just got a GS350 with ML/Nav/XMradio for $46,671 + TTFees. Invoice is $45,671. MSRP is $51,763(last option package on Lexus site in "Build your GS"). So I paid exactly $1000 over invoice. Normally they sell for $2,000-$2,500 over invoice in the Phoenix area but had some additional negotiating ability on this one.

    Very good price.
    What color did you get?
    I paid a bit less than $2500 and still waiting for the car to come. There aren't many 07'GS350 fully loaded in the Boston area.
