You shouldn't count on getting too much off...best deal I've heard around here was like $1500 but that involved some sort of sexual favor....

$34.8K+ tax and tip...that was my deal

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

if you dress like trash then theyre not going to take you as seriously interested. be professional and don't let the dealer easily persuade you or try to con you in to making an impulse purchase.

Got mine from CarsDirect.com fully loaded (no LSD) for $33,484. Online would be your best bet since they are trying to gain market share.

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...
