Just curious what you and your girl friend do for a living and if you work for free. Don't expect a dealer to loose money to sell you a car if you expect the dealer to still be there when you need service.

how does this contribute to this thread or help answer OPs question in anyway?

OP if the dealer is already willing to sell you a car at invoice price I highly doubt they would budge any further. Maybe they can give a deal on some add ons but that would probably be it. Good luck with the purchase, and as I said in your other thread check the IS C section of this forum you may be able to get more advice from the IS C guys on their experiences prior to purchase.

what exactly are you wanting to be included in your car as far as options goes, maybe you can find a older model with everything you want within the price range that you're going for? As far as I know the 2011-2012 model the only difference other than interior trim colors probably is the headlights. The 2011 has flat black housing and the led is yellowish, vs the 2012 is glossy black housing and the led is more white. The headlight cover also has what they call a eyelash on it that was supposed to prevent the bubbling defect that the 2011 headlights had, but unfortunately some members with the 2012 headlights have already encountered the bubbling defect on theirs. As far as I know there isnt a recall for the 2012 lights yet.

The best deal I have heard is 500 dollars over invoice price. If they are selling with invoice price I would get it right away. I bet this is something with their yearly deal now. Under invoice price? I don't think they would do it. You are buying Lexus, not something else.

Why do you think he'd be losing money selling under invoice?

Even selling AT invoice the dealer makes a profit based on the holdback amount the manufacturer pays... so they could go "under" by that amount without losing anything....and there's many other types of credits/rebates from the manufactuer that might give them even more room "under" invoice to still make a profit. Or to put it another way, at $500 "under" invoice the dealer is still making, at least, hundreds in profit.

Further, every month the car sits on the lot costs the dealer money, so (just to make up some #s) if it's the last day of the month and it's going to "cost" the dealer $200 to keep the car another month, he can "lose" $150 on it and still be ahead of not having sold it.

At this point, near the end of the lifecycle of the 2nd generation IS in general, and also just a few weeks away from the end of the 2012 model year as well, I'd be very surprised if you couldn't find under-invoice deals if you shopped around to enough dealers and were firm in what you're willing to pay... It'll be even easier next month for any left-over 2012s since the 2013s will be on the lot.
