Realistic Pricing

Hey guys, happy new year! Long time lurker, first time poster etc.

I'm currently in the market for an IS-F -- I'm located in SoCal. The deals out there on '09s are dwindling and I just wanted to get everyone's feedback on this.

I was at this dealership when they informed me their last Obsidian IS-F
with black interior is the last new vehicle available in the west coast. ML Nav 300 miles. They asked for 535xx and my agent got it down to 523xx (58xxx drive off). Then out of the blue, they called me to inform me that it's been sold for 553xx + tax and license with high APR% to a walk-in.

So yeah, at this point I don't think I'm going for a '09 anymore, probably just going to put this on the back burner and wait for '10 prices to go down (they wont sell below MSRP at this time on '10s)

It just seems so outrageously high pricing comparing to some of the other guys' prices on this forums -- the one that's been hovering around 47-50k. Any feedback on this?

I'm not sure what incentives are right now. Lexus incentives to the dealership are what really drop the prices occasionally. When I bought mine, there was a 5k factory to dealer incentive plus several others. I bought a new 08 in June 09, and paid more than 13k below MSRP. This isn't a common occurrence though.

2008 Lexus IS F - SGM - JoeZ intake pipe, Tom's filter, Borla catback exhaust, 30% tint all around, 245/35R19 and 275/30R19 Continental DWS tires
2006 Honda CBR1000RR - Akrapovic Evolution Line Race Exhaust, BMC Race Air Filters, Vortec Rear Sets, Bazzaz Tuner, Dyno Mapped
2000 Honda S2000 (Sold and missed)- AP2 in an AP1, BC coilovers, Prodrive monoblock forged wheels, etc.

Gymkata is right. Without any factory incentives and limited production of the ISF, even less for the 2010 model year, everyone I talk to is selling them for MSRP. I know a few dealerships have charged over, but I wouldn't do that. I think the MSRP is a fair price for the vehicle and my GM and owner agree.

PM me and let me know what your looking for, I'll be happy to help.

Yup,, most ppl that paid $47,000-$50,000 for their F is more than likely a leftover 08 purchased in 09. You gotta remember, we had a really rough 08 where gas prices were extremely high, unemployment was high and no body dared to spend like they had a printer printing money at home. I do alot of research cause I am in the business myself and I feel that the economy is improving... Prices are holding alot better now, if you look at edmunds.com you will realize that the latest incentives for the new car are no where as good as they were just 4-5months ago.. It only means one thing, car manufactures are picking back up and they dont need to throw in extra incentives to push their car off the lot... I myself, picked up my brand new 08 IsF in May of 09 for $49,500 and I was very happy with my purchase cause I had a $12k+ discount and Its a Lexus, they are reliable and hold their value relatively well.. Im pretty sure if you hunt around, you can find a 2010 at a good discount but dont expect $10k-13k off sticker, cause its not gonna happen with the 2010, I even doubt thats gonna happen to leftover 09s,,, maybe $7-8k off leftover 09s... If you want, sit around for another month, Lexus might bring the $5k incentives to blow their 09 leftovers out the door. but by then, the dealers will probably only have 2010 IsF,, dont forget, they cut production of the 09s for a few months so theres not gonna be that many leftovers like there was for the 08

Thanks guys for the fast response~

I got the picture already, but as ISFChamp mentioned, '10 models are selling currently at MSRP all around -- that's around 57xxx + tax so we are looking at 62k+ drive off.

For all of yall who got the car below MSRP, kudos to you. Right now as IsFly168 mentioned the sells are holding and the prices are rebounding, missed the chance, might as well just wait...

Just remember 2010 IS F production will be a lot smaller than 08 and 09. You won't see many 2010 on dealer lots like you did in previous years. The 2010 has a few more newer options standard than previous years, so if you're waiting for a sub $50k new ISF, don't hold your breath.

Hopefully, this will pull the re-sale value of the used F up a bit. Its too nice of a car to be treated like crap at the dealerships... Problem is all these dealers are just wholeselling them out only worrying about pushing sales of their new cars and not keeping trade ins on their lots.

Poked around in the last few days, most dealerships around here quoted me 58-59k for the 2010 model, I was considering it given it has a smaller production line and new added features, but the 10-15% hike on the price is a bit distressing. By the way anyone got the new '10 model willing to share their prices?

Sticker on my 2010 was 63.5k and I was able to get them down to 59k. They wouldn't go any lower then 59k. You won't find a 2010 unless it's a demo or used for less then 50k.
