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!

J1Stealth I'd rather not say exactly where because the supply is somewhat limited right now. I don't know how much time this deal is going to be on the table either. I do know the dealers notice I said DEALERS said they would keep the price the same for the color combo I want. I'm looking for fire agate w/ Carmel interior and loaded. Second choice is smokey grey granite w Carmel. Consensus is it will be 2-3 weeks + for them to get that car. Likely will happen once the new shipment arrives to Long Beach via Japan end of this month.

FYI the entire West Coast gets their cars from the Long Beach Port.

Would love to know what this includes. I'm waiting for pricing on the following:

- Premium
- Leather Package
- Wood Trim
- Premium Audio
- Navigation
- Remote Start
- F Sport Wheels (waiting)
- F Sport Suspension (waiting)

With the F Sport additions, the price will be around $40k

What's the exact packages and options? That price seems like it's under invoice if it has the premium audio and NAV since you're saying it has everything but LED and Leather. Just curious.

Below is the sticker price showing the options for this car. As you can see it is a premium package with navigation. It does not have the LED head lights or the leather like I said. With the money saved I might spring for the LED headlights, interior dash kit, illuminated door sills, and the i-phone holder. The dealer is also looking into getting me a modellista Modellista Package or some aftermarket 17' chrome or racing wheels installed. All of the above obviously will be extra but, the way I'm looking at it I'm already saving almost 6k!

Invoice for this spec is around $32,700 if the dealer is serious you should buy it and immediately resell it at a profit.

You are getting this car below invoice !!!!!!

This.

I hope your dealer isn't jacking you around. Please let us know if you actually end up getting the car at this price or if somehow he realizes he was "looking at the wrong VIN" or some other switcheroo. I'm guessing you're in San Diego. I know Lexus dealers are supposed to be a cut above, but they're still car salesmen. I had one try to bust out the four-square technique on me.

Also, the iPhone holder will come standard.

Yeah, something doesn't seem right with that price. It's way below invoice and dealer hold back. That's about around the employee discount price. Hope you're able to get in. Keep us posted.

I have had the vin # and price confirmed with two seperate dealerships. Both would honor this price on the vehicle that needs to be ordered to fulfill my color combination request. I consider myself lucky for sure! Reselling this car for pure profit is moronic! I am purchasing this car because I want it, not for the idea of trying to make a buck. I'm not in the business to wheel and deal on the side behind my dealer(s) back.

I am sorry but there's no way your dealer is willing to sell you at that price.. it's just seem not possible.. anyhow.. good job for finding such good deal.. but, if it's really that price in SD, I will fly down to get that car.. In bay area, they are selling at msrp..

My local Lexus/Toyota dealer whom I've purchased two brand new vehicles from (one about 4 months ago) has quoted me $32,012 for a CTh premium with leather, premium mats and LED headlights. That's before arguing, haggling, bitching, moaning and finance talk. I forgot to add in the remote start, but all said and done, I don't see $32,000 out the door to ridiculous........ But the OP's price is off the charts amazing. Get me that deal and I'll skip the leather and LED's.

Just proves some dealers are clueless, if that's what he quoted.

To get leather you also need to purchase premium audio

CT200H Premium $30,900
Delivery $875
Premium Audio $1,125
Leather $1,330
LED Headlights $1,215
Premium Mats $249

$35694

Nearly $3,700 discount !!!!

Grab it if you can get it

You can get leather without audio on the premium model. And I plan to scoop it up as soon as I can.

Well, you CAN get leather on the premium without premium audio but Lexus isn't making them that way right now. You would have to special order it for now. At least here in Socal. :)

Not here in Connecticut - leather requires the purchase of premium audio too

It does seem the dealer is clueless.. maybe they try to get you in and then say that config is not possible.. I think all leather seat requires premium audio (in addition to being the premium ct with the moonroof of course).. That should push the MSRP to 35k+
