    If they try to charge you for the dealer added stuff don't be afraid to tell them to take it off, especially for crap like nitrogen tires (120$) or pinstrips (80$). wheel locks, etc.

    They should come with wheel locks as part of the price. At least that was in my case

    Mine came with dealer extra's included because they traded with another dealership for the car and quoted me a price without that stuff, but after visiting a couple lots I saw every dealership charging for wheel locks, nitrogen, pinstripes, floor mats etc.

    You saw the price at 23k at cars.com? I don't think that includes tax ($920 as you said), or doc fee or destination charge (another $900+ ?). I paid for my 2018 SI 24.5 OTD which is MSRP. Your tax is about 900 less, so 23.5K OTD is about the same deal ( which I think is good ) as mine.

    My dealer charged me for wheel locks, I asked sale person to take it off then. The wheel locks stayed on the car but removed from the contract. ;-)

    That was the price for the car including destination fee. Then add state tax and title, which varies from state to state, so "OTD" price is kind of irrelevant since someone could pay more "OTD" simply because they live in a state that has higher sales tax, or they had a bigger down payment, etc.

    Jason, you might want to wait until the middle of next month, around Christmas time. I've always found X-MAS is the best time of year to get the best deal. Maybe use that Costco program and have all the local dealers fight over who's going to give you the best deal. I hate dealers so much I won't talk to them, I just do everything by email, get a purchase offer and then(and only then) go to the dastardly dealer to give them the check and sign the papers. They will screw you over for the smallest thing so if they try to go over the purchase offer just tell them "NO".

    I ended up getting more than 10% off sticker @ 23.2k for the car / 25k OTD. This was only after I emailed every Honda dealership in the DFW area. Most told me to go pound sand but Honda of Fort Worth was ready to deal and hooked it up :headbang:

    Edit - I realized this was actually a 15% discount as the sticker price was $27,200 after the Honda Protection Package, window tint, and nitrogen were added on top of the base MSRP of $25,930 - an even better deal than I thought!

    That's how you do it! Haggle over price thru email make an offer telling them you will pick up the car right then and there if they accept it, do the financing online (most dealerships have online financing options), come in to inspect the car and sign the paperwork and you will be in and out in an hour. Paying cash there might be more scrutiny, also dealerships make money on financing so not surprisingly don't like cash buyers

    Fo'sho. Pretty much every dealer wanted to meet face-to-face and did not want to provide quotes via email. At that point, I quit communicating with them and moved on to the next. Honda of Fort Worth was the only dealer who provided a competitive quote in an email and didn't pull any bs when I actually showed up in person. Hats off to them for being totally transparent about everything.
