Signed: 2019 Lexus IS300 - MSRP $42,824- $418/month - $0 DAS

Just signed on a 2019 IS300 Base RWD - with premium package, heated steering wheel, intuitive park assist and accessories package.

Picked up in NC, car registered in NJ. I wanted a RWD and dealers up north only carry the AWD, thus why I shopped in NC. Fees are really high but the dealer would not budge so I counter offered with a lower selling price and they finally agreed.

MSRP: $42,824.00
Selling Price: $36,300 (15.2% off)
Lease cash: $4,250.00
Fees: $2,170 (Acq, dealer, title, accessories)
NJ Sales tax: 6.625%

Residual: .49
Money Factor: .00005
Down Payment: $0
DAS: $0

Monthly Lease Payment: $418
LeaseHackr Score: 9.1


This is my first time leasing a car and I’m happy with my deal. Thanks to this forum and everyone on here, which provided me with all the information I needed to learn how to negotiate and calculate lease numbers.


Holy insane dealer fees!

Enjoy the car


Good deal!!! I would be super happy with it.
