    I'm in cali and knew I didn't stand a chance at MSRP. I found a dealer out of state and put it in writing. I suggest you do the same if you're in CA. There are good dealers out there believe it or not. Just have to put in the due diligence

    Ill probably do the same, best bet is snow states where they want their AWD.

    Just make sure if you buy from NJ, they dont have the front plate mount with holes drilled. If you buy from PA, you wont have that issue since we only have a rear plate. I went to buy a mercedes a few years back in NJ that had the plate mount and holes in the front bumper. i passed on it an found one in PA. Was a little more expensive, but the front plate mount would have bothered me every time i looked at the car.

    The horrible dealer network is what's going to kill this car. I feel Honda dealers are pretty snobby just because buyers and dealers feel the product is superior to the competition. When the new insight landed both my Illinois dealer and a Florida dealer of a friend acted the same way, like big white whales.

    I've been doing the same. Unfortunately, I haven't found a dealer that's not too far away with solid info.

    I can vouch for California, Honda in Irvine is doing 10k over markup along with Valencia.

    Oh I know, my 2010 Si that I had a few years back had a front plate holder when I bought it. I told the dealer to remove it before I left with the car. Luckily the holes weren't visable

    Yeah I don't drill the front bumper, I've never gotten a ticket for having no front plate

    Some States, or cities, are very relaxed about it. Here in CA, they'll spot you very easily and are quick to give a fine or fix-it tickets.

    $35k is a good price, but $45k and up here in Illinois I believe will be a tough sell for fwd performance car. At that price point you can get a 2016-17 camaro ss 1le or if you love hatches a golf r that offers awd.

    What really bugs me about this.. After 30 years of waiting... Is the fact that many people in those states will say.... Time to go get my first ford or first vw or subaru.. Bye bye honda

    Wow, in both of these cases, as well as others cited here, if the dealerships are this arrogant I would just walk AND never go back to buy any other car from them - ever! :mad:

    I had a local Ford dealership try this on me when I was looking for a Shelby. In the end, they lost out as I, or any of my family, will never buy a vehicle from them for life. I found a much better deal in the end, elsewhere. ;)
