(FYI)

I received an email like this:

I wanted to let you know that Lexus Monterey Peninsula may be in a position to discount the new IS300 as early as mid-July depending on our inventory. We are the most aggressive dealership between Monterey and the Oregon border and if we have inventory available in July, which we think we probably will, we should be in a position to discount the same.

The discount from MSRP would be in the range from $500 to $1,000.

Please give me a call at 831-393-3030 if I can be of any further assistance to you.

Thank you for your interest in Lexus.

Also, a local dealer told me that they have been having alot of pre-order people cancel because "their stock market investments aren't doing as well as expected."

I just called the dealer. The only way you can get a discount is if you take the demo model. For the first-round of cars, the demo model will be black/black with leather trim and sunroof (there might be others, but this is the only one I was told). The salesperson said he could probably knock $500 or so off the retail, but the car is likely to have 200 miles on it or so.

Also, my preferred color combination will be relatively rare (silver/ivory). Of all the silvers (which would be a common color), only 15% or so will be available with ivory interior.

Come on now, there ARE other ways of getting under MSRP w/o buying a demo. And is it really worth paying $500 less for a car that has been subjected to heavy feet before being properly broken in?

It is if you're tearing the motor out as soon as you get it like me. Sadly I don't want leather or moonroof so I have to order mine anyway. Still, they won't give me a discount even though it will take 90 days.

Another note sent to me from a dealer:

We received our allocation for our first 3 cars, which are all spoken =
for. The allocation, was for a silver/black with leather package and =
moonroom, white/ivory with luxury leather package (heated seats, limited =
slip, wood accent and piping on seats) and moonroof, and black/black =
with leather package and moonroof. We expect that most of our cars will =
come equipped with the leather and luxury leather pacakges.

On June 1st we will be preferrencing cars for delivery in the 3rd to 4th =
week of June and most of those orders should be filled with people on =
our waiting list. The cars that we will preferrence in mid-June or the =
first of July may be sold at a discount from MSRP. We currently have a =
wait list with about 7 people on it. Once these people have their =
vehicles and we have extra inventory (ground stock), which should be in =
July, we may be in a position to vary from MSRP. As soon as we have =
ground stock available I will let you know and will provide you with the =
colors and specifications of those vehicles.

Thank you.
