I visited my Dealer today to work out the final details of picking up my new IS350. I am #1 on thier list having put my deposit down in Jan.. I wanted a 350 with the sport (performance lux plus) package with nav and ML. Based on thier allotment my choices are.
A) loaded one that added PCS, PA and HW $47,165
B) base model with only the NAV and ML $39,494 no sport package.
C) order the one I want: sport +NAV and ML $43,715

Option A I can get Friday, Option B in less than 30 days Option C will take 90-100 days. I really wanted to be driving my new IS home Friday but I guess I will wait and special order it the way I want it. :pissed:

I would wait and get exactly the way you wanted it. On top of that, perhaps you can also choose the color as well. Good luck.
As for me, I'll do the same, but for the 2nd year model.

?? That's the sticker price, there's no extra dealer markup built-in.

I think that's freaken insane, but that's just me :lol:
50gs, I think I would just go with a sports package and call it a day. Fok all the other stuff, I mean Nav is great but how often are you gone play with that thing. But I guess if you can afford it than go for it. I would rather get myself a nice Plasma for the House rather than go with Nav/ML. All of the sudden the Audi S4 doesn't look all that expensive at all :lol: What happened to affordable Lexus?

Wow, the price sure did go up from what it used to be. I'd say forget that and keep the IS300

It's in TX, all yours if you want it. More than I wanted to pay. I will most likely go with option C and special order it.

I think its pointless buying a first year vehicle and paying msrp or even a markup.

But to each their own. If you have then money then go for it.

But I'm a poor student so I cant even afford the IS350.

But If I could afford the IS350 I wouldnt get it right away either. I'm a sucker to get the best deal poor or wealthy.

Wow. $47k is a huge disappointment. Where do they get off charging that kind of price for a car not much bigger than a Corolla? The car is tits but come on!

The new 350 is too expensive for what it is. I say buy 3 IS300's

I say wait...the car will be discounted by spring 06.

It is overpriced although the IS350 is better priced relative to the IS250.
