My lease on my IS300 is ending in a couple months. I would like to lease the new 350. anyone have any advice on ways to secure the best price possible when returning my car?

Try going back to the same dealer you got your IS300 from. If they want to retain you as a customer, you may be able to work a deal. FYI, if you are planning on getting a 350 any time soon, I would advise placing an order since there will be more 250's at first than 350's.
Good luck.

Depends on what they are going for in your area. Check local listings to see what people are getting.

Lots of luck deciding on your new car....I'll vote for the IS350 then the G35C. ;)

you can almost certainly get more than 16300 for your car if it's in great condition and if the mileage doesn't go up too much between now and lease-end.

What color is it by the way?

Blue booking the car with base options comes up with a trade in value of 17.5 in my area (coulnd't find the zip code for gothem).

Buy it, then either sell it or trade it in. Either way your ahead.

At $16300 buy out, I thinks it's a fair price....plus you already know the car in and out. Unless you beat it up. Just my 2 cents. :)

i barely drive it. i work in the city, so its basically a weekend driver. i'm definitely gonna get a different car over the next few months. it just seems like such a waste to return it to lexus and get nothing out of it. might as well pass it on to someone else...
