Over at ForbesAutos, Nate Chapnick tells the tale of a Lexus GS450 that went for four grand under MSRP in a Hollywood charity auction for marine conservancy Oceana.

It rather quickly went for $54,000 to Ted Danson's agent, who then crowed, "I just got the winning bid on the GS 450h, $4,000 under MSRP!" Ah, agents. They sure do love the art of the deal non?
