To be honest, '02 model hasn't been around that much for us to determine if that a reasonable price... BUT if you compare it with '01...I think its a good price...
I still remember the sticker price on my car was $33,490 (w/o NAV, Spoiler, GG Wheel).
I was thinking the sticker price will be sky rockets !!!!! if you know what I mean...
Is it fully leather....Cause I thought I read a post in here where MSRP for Crystal white AUTO with fully-leather seats and NAV is $38K or somthing like that...

of course that sounds right.... the NAV option is very costly! so is the full leather ... $$$$$$ expect it close to $40K for a fully FULLY loaded IS300

i just got back from longo lexus and they just got in their first 2002 5 spd (silver) today. it was fully loaded...w/ EVERYTHING full leather, nav, heated seats, lsd, rear spoiler, moonroof, and the most expensive, (1700$) for chrome rims (which i think is a complete rip off. the sticker price came out to about 37,500 and the dealer said they weren't going to budge on the price. but after tax and license that comes out a little over 40 G which is a lot of money for an IS Manual.

so i guess a manual with leather, moon roof, lsd, nav, heated seats, wheel locks, trunk mats and destination charge for 33,5 is good? i guess i should jump on this?

People...you need to remember that these are the first of the new 2002's. The dealers are going to be trying to sell them well above sticker in the beginning. Especially because they are only coming in limited supply right now.
I was the one who saw a Crystal White one at Lexus of Valencia for 38,000. That was fully loaded automatic minus the spoiler.
If we are patient, then i feel that we will see more reasonable prices in the coming months. Just hang in there.

You can try playing one dealer off another. See what one dealer is will to offer, take that to another dealer and see if he will beat it. If so, take it back to the first, or go to a third if you have that option, and repeat till no one budges anymore.

Newbie here, but I went and test drove a 2002 silver with NAV and full leather at dealer in Carlsbad, CA. Can't remember what the dealer name is. Anyway, the sticker listed was somewhere between 36-37 for the auto. It had the heated seat but I'm not sure about the LSD. The manual should be about $1400 less.

they don't have any vehicles there yet, as soon as they do, i will post it, i am hoping that it will be on august 14th or sooner, but we'll see. i would guess that the lexus of alexandria or rockville would get cars in as fast, and the same day.

you saw an Intensa Blue Pearl car? are you sure, as i haven't heard of anyone seeing one yet in person. actually, i just got my intensa blue pearl paint in today, and it was a bitch to get. can you say where and what dealership, and also, pics would be absolutely awesome! lmk about the dealer, and if you are sure it was IBP. tia (if so, that means that some IBP cars will actually be coming in the first wave of allotments, no one seems to have seen any on the allotments yet?!?!)

Guys... please dont forget the majority of the Sticks will also come with the "optional" aka costly stiffer tuned suspension... which may also add to the final cost.
