2-grand off of msrp is the best I've seen. I've you need the car now, be prepared to pay for it. If you can wait a while or visit a nearby dealer you may be able to save several hundred.

2 G's off MSRP? that is pretty good, so was that the drive out price or what? The best I heard was 33K out the door, I think that is the best deal I heard.

Do this: take the invoice (26K) add all the options you want, then add a 2% dealer profit then add TTL. That should be in the ball park of 33-34-ish. Which is pretty good because the dealer is only making around 2.5% profit, yeah right, you never know how much they make off of us. On the 2%, give it to the sales guy, you know an under the table thing..maybe he could cut you an even better deal since he is making money his/her money already.
Also dress like trash, look like you have no money but just enough to buy the IS300

BLUEBYU,
Pardon my ignorance, but what is LSD (besides a mind altering drug). I have not purchased yet and might consider buying online. Exactly what options did you get (moonroof, etc.)? I'd like to compare this against the local dealer.

TIA,
Rich

(LSD) = Limited Slip Differental. I got the following options:

Leather/Ecsaine Package (no wood trim)
Power Tilt/Slid moonroof
Trunk Mat
Wheel Locks

The online buying experience was surprisingly simple. Just give them your order and the locate the vehicle for you for a guaranteed price.

I did notice they now state "Limited Availablity" I do not know if this will effect the pricing or not.

Tell them you've heard the IS300 has transmission and hesitation problems and it's not worth what they're asking...
