I wanted to post this so that I may help others. I seem to have been offered the best price for a CT in North America it seems from a dealership in I'll just say "somewhere in California" based on everyones posts on various threads.
Premium package with everything besides the LED headlamps and leather interior...$31,688. The dealer is also offering me an additional $1,000 off for their Lexus Loyalty program ( We just bough a 2011 GX 460 a few weeks ago ) This will bring the price own to $30,688!! Why haven't I signed the paper work yet you may ask? One is color combo and the other is that I want to test drive the new 2012 Ford Focus Titanium edition before making my final decision. My dealer is also looking into possibly securing a Modellista Edition car and some custom chrome wheels for my new CT.
With developments in Japan, rising gas prices, and the car already exceeding sales expectations negotiating may be tough but, not impossible and my offered price goes to show you this IS room to negotiate on the CT!
