Well, here's a 2013 with NAV (now that you've taught me what to look for) with ~4k miles less than the local car; asking price is $29, 997.

Crap you're right. It even says cloth seats! I thought all ES cars had leather. I have a lot to learn.

Regardless, I've driven the 47k 2013 car quite a bit and looked it over. What should I...

Lastly, what's weird is when you run the carfax on the NY car, it says "subtract from retail price". One would think I'd want to ADD because of the uber-low miles.

Also, both are certified. Ignore the title of the NYC car; the pictures show 9k miles not 5k.
But still - there's enough of a price difference to hop on a bird and drive it back.

Yes, Carmax has definitely tightened the belt over the last few years. Maybe the last year?

So what price would you start off with on the negotiations?

Local Lex dealer has a 13 ES 300h with 47k miles, priced @ 33.9k.
I'm seeing ones with the exact same options and far less miles at other Lexus dealers for less.
For example, Lexus of Manhattan has...

Look, I realize the LS is a superior car. From a true cost of ownership perspective, I'm not sure it's as good as the LS430, or at least the LS430 I had. Sold with 165k miles and after 8 years all...

Yep, 17" wheels. The LS430 was a dream - never should have sold that car. I sold it with 165k miles and drove it for 8 years. I did nothing but routine maintenance.

Quick question re Ride quality - LS430 vs LS460 w/wout air

I've now owned a 2004 LS430 and a 2007 LS460 with air suspension (just sold the latter last week).

I'm thinking selling the LS460 was a mistake, but I had the L version with air (exec package) and...

Nothing looks better than black when clean and shiny. Which is why I buy silver cars - too lazy to keep them clean! :)

I would like it to resume at the point the song was playing, as the HD does, CD's do, DVD's, etc.
Does yours really do this too? Can't tell your level of sarcasm.:)
