Default Possible to talk down lease buyout price on 2010 GS450h?

Hey Guys, new to the forum and this is my first post. My parents have always leased their Lexus's for the past 13 years at least. My dad has had the SC430 while my mom has had the LS430 at times and at one point a couple years ago my dad had the LX SUV while my mom has had the GS450h.

Ive had my 2001 Honda Accord V6 since I started driving which was almost 10 years ago. Had 88k miles on it and sold it for 6k a couple weeks ago on CL. My mom's GS450h lease ends on may 28th(they always turn in their cars every 3 years and get the newest model) but my mother decided not go get another one because they didn't like the new navigation controls in the 2013 models(story for another day) and decided to go with the 2013 mercedes E350 for my mother(i know its sad they switched).

So the 2010 GS 450h that my mom has is fully loaded and has only 12k miles on it(she never drove anywhere far). The buyout price for the car is $33,125. Im going to buy the lease out from Lexus. I want to know from you guys if its possible to talk them down in price or if people have ever done that because I talked to the sales guy that helps my parents and he said there are no price negotiations on this car and he has never heard of that happening for lease buyouts. is this true or?

I have heard of some people that have done it and lowered the price of the buyout but, also heard that Lexus was cracking down on that. You can try doesn't hurt to try.

I don't believe you can negotiate a lower price.
However,$33K is a great number for a '10 with 12K miles.
There's only one '10 450h in a 100 mile radius to me and it has $20K miles and the asking price is $37,400.

The price is great, i would definatly try to talk them down but keep in mind they can sell it for 40k easy on the lot.

Probably not its a GS 450h I can say they are struggling to sell the 3GS, they would probably want to sell it quick due to the problem selling them and how long they would stay on the lot.
