I've been searching the forums and have decided on getting an IS with the following options:
  • External Color: Graphite Gray
  • Leather Package w/ Black leather
  • 17" Polished Graphite Wheels
  • Moonroof with sunshade
Is LSD worth the extra $400? I live in the SF Bay Area and don't really come accross hills that often. The only thing that bugs me is that I'll have two empty spaces where the buttons for the Heated Seats would have went. Oh well...
What is a good price to pay for the car with the options I chose (not including tax and license)? Judging from old posts, the consensus seems to be that $32k seems to be a fair deal. What do you guys think?

32k seems reasonable...
but members are getting lower and lower quotes...

well, although i don't have LSD equipped IS, i'd 400 bucks is well worth it.

32K in Georgia sure...we live in the Bay Area..I'd expect to see it go for $34K.

I paid that back when the market was hitting - you might have some luck but who knows.

I got the LSD and all the goods...it is worth it. I haven't seen the LSD come into play but it is nice knowing its there.

32K is good, but make them include LSD and include locking lug nuts and a trunk mat too.

Thanks for the info, but it would be nice if you guys explained what you mean by loaded. Loaded meaning every single option included or loaded meaning leather and sunroof???

My guess is "loaded" is every option except the lux package with the fake wood. I'd expect that to be mentioned separately. For example, my SBM with black leather interior is "loaded", minus moon roof.

Leather/Escaine Trim
Convienience Package
heated seats
Moonroof
Floor mats
trunk mat

I've been quoted 31,789 for the following features...
Leather Package
Graphite Wheels
Moonroof with sunshade

directly from the dealer. Right now is a slow season for them and they are giving pretty good discounts. I'm going to try and get it for 31k.

Softshell,
How much is sales tax where you live? I think I'm going to have to pay a whole lot more for ttl than you did. We have 8% tax here in the SF Bay Area.
