Just in case anyone was interested, I purchased my 2002 manual IS300 today from Lexus of Pleasanton. I got the yellow one with the leather/ecsaine package for $32,642 ($1K off MSRP). I'm really excited!!!

Shadow1980: I actually had a deposit with Stevens Creek, so my intention was to buy it through them, but Pleasanton just had the one I wanted at the right time. Didn't look into Fremont or Redwood City.

Congrats on your new car! You will be very happy, I am…

Looks like the dealers do budge a little bit on the price, or at least some of them do. I went to Santa Monica Lexus on Saturday and they would not even talk at anything under $500 off sticker only. I walked out because I said I had the check right there and I was serious. I guess they weren’t.

So I went to the best Lexus/Toyota dealer in the world (Longo of El Monte, CA) and saw the one I wanted, Silver on black w/o Nav. By the way Navigation cars are at a premium because they aren’t making many, so you will have to pay almost full price for one.
Anyways, mine had a sticker of $33,782. I walked out of there with a price of $31,7xx something + tax, lic, etc. That’s $2,000 below sticker. Might have something to do with my wife’s family buying several cars from Longo over the past 10 years, but hey it helped. The deal was smooth, no stress, and now I know why they sell twice as many cars as the second largest Lexus dealer.

There’s only one problem. I am trying to drive slowly, but I keep finding myself at like 75mph every few seconds. Warning: take it easy on the gas pedal.

Good Luck,
SoCalIS300

Thank you everyone for the congrats! I'm so excited to be part of the IS family
! SoCalIS300: I know what you mean about trying to take it slow the first couple of miles, everytime I glance at the speedometer I'm going faster than I should be
! I felt pretty lucky to get $1K off MSRP, considering that I called Stevens Creek to see if they would beat the price and they said they wouldn't budge from the sticker price. It looks like you got the best deal though ($2K off), congrats to you!

welcome to the forum and ownership A-girl, it's a phat ride, just take it easy on the gas or grow eyes in the back of your head... it's really easy to go 20+ mph over the limit and not even know it

Be very afraid of IS300Soon, as he has chemical imbalances and now that his 1 true love on the forum is on vacation for a month, he'll need someone to take his place...
Stop by the "Parking lot" to meet the regular retards like him and myself.
