Default Picked mine up today...

Well, after a month of searching for a smoky mica granite / black with the Premium package, I broke down and went with the UL. The dealer worked with me on the price since I really wasn't interested in the UL before. So...

Smoky Mica Granite / Black
ML
Rear Spoiler
Body Side Molding (to be delivered)
Preferred Acc. Package

Invoice price (according to KBB for my zip code) would be: $38,148. I paid less than $2k over that.

I'll post photos as soon as the body side molding shows up and is installed. Might be a few months...

Thanks to everyone on the forum for all the quality posts.

Brian

Picked up my new ES350 late last week. I'll attach some pics once I take some good ones!

Tungsten Pearl with the light grey interior. Seems to be a popular choice.

Canadian "Premium package" which has:
- power rear sunshade
- HID lamps
- Dual-swivel Adaptive front lighting
- Rear seat side airbags
- Wood steering wheel and shifter
- Driver variable cushion length
- Passenger seat memory
- Rain sensing wipers.

Base model here already contains heated and vented seats, electrochromic mirrors and full size spare.

Didn't buy the Ultra package (DVD, Navi, ML, panoramic roof, bluetooth, cassette) as the Navi system is somewhat limited with CA listings, and the base audio system sounds very, very good.

Traded in 2004 Honda Accord EX.

There is a shortage of floor mats in CA right now, so they are delivering cars with black mats as there are no grey ones yet available. When the grey ones are available locally, they will be swapped in to replace my black ones by the dealer. I hate grey interiors, but this color in the ES350 is just amazing. It is a very different shade than used in the ES330.

I've put this on the colors forum, but here goes:
Aquamarine with grey interior
UL package with cargo net
Dealer add-on chrome wheels (great wheels!) and perma-finish protection (didn't want it, but was already on the car)
Favorite features: keyless entry is tops, but also love and use the nav system, rear sun shade, bluetooth for blackberry phone.

I bought the fully loaded ES 350 UL Black w/ black interior. My car also came with Crome rims and I am having the "black package" (replace the logos, etc with black graphite version) installed at a later date. The Crome rims were dealer installed and cost about 3k, but i managed to get the dealer to give them to me for free. So I pretty much paid MSRP.. but i'm a first time car buyer and i'm not very good at haggling for a deal.. so i think i did OK.

I will post pictures once i get the black package installed.

Now if i can just get the wind issues fixed

Picked up my ES350 on Thursday and love it! My husband told me I had to get out of the car sometime as I was still sitting in it in the driveway when he got home.
Tungsten Pearl
Gray Interior
Premium Plus

I love the ventilated seats here in Texas as did the client I showed houses to yesterday.
I sold my 10 year-old Avalon to a friend and he is thrilled with it - still looked and ran great with 94K miles.

I bought my ES350 this last Monday. It is:
Tungsten Pearl exterior/Light Gray interior
Premium Plus with NAV
XM Radio

I traded in a 2001 Lexus LS430. It was the fourth LS I've owned since 1991. Being retired, I couldn't justify the additional price of a new LS. So far I am extremely pleased with my ES.

Just curious, how many people are leasing vs buying?
I'm a buyer (me and the credit union!)

This is my first Lexus, but not likely to be my last...
