If that's about $42k + TTL, IMO that's a fantastic deal on a 2015 (6600/13.6% off sticker).

MSD = multiple security deposit - you'll need to check to see if Missouri allows them - some states don't. Lexus allows up to 9 - each one reduces the money factor by

Lol - I spent a few years at New River near Lejeune and the rest of the time at Cherry Point in Havelock. Our house in Havelock cost about 5% of what houses here in CA cost now - those were the days.

The point I was making was how can a dealer stay in business selling at msrp when most others offer pretty good discounts.

lexi - I can't remember if you said whether you've tried any NY dealers - they seem to have some good deals.

Did I read correctly that dealer #2 won't discount off msrp?

Actually, CA is one of the better buyer's markets for these cars - usually 12-15% off sticker.
But you have to work at it and negotiate with multiple dealers.

If you get the purchase price to about 11-12% off the total sticker, that would be a good deal. Anything more would be icing on the cake.
