Wow papagoph, our buys were very similar! I was going to post this after pick up, but wanted to follow your post.
On Nov. 8 we bought a 2008 Baltic Blue Odyssey EX-L from Hansel Honda in Petaluma, CA. Due to our work schedules and the DVD installation, we decided to pick it up this Saturday. Here's the breakdown:
$25,988 purchase price, including destination and dealer installed 10” DVD system.
$55 docu fee
$272 license, reg, transfer, tire fees
$2083 tax (8.0% OUCH!)
Note: To complete the deal at $25,988 I negotiated a dealer-installed aftermarket drop-down 10.0" DVD system. So, looked at another way we ran the dealer's numbers and the purchase price on the EX-L straight out was $25,300. This is just a hair above the $25,200 quoted above. (I will also post this info on the Real Car Tips website).
Baltic Blue seems pretty scarce in EX-L now (at least in northern CA and even harder to find in with RES (none in northern CA according to checks by a few local dealers). Out of 30 2008's of various models on Hansel’s lot, this was the only dark blue one. Papagoph makes the interesting observation about amount of 2008’s on a dealer’s lot factoring into more favorable pricing. It makes sense that a dealer would do this and I agree. Is a coincidence our buys are so close? Maybe, maybe not.
FYI – For a comparison, we first drove a 2009 Sienna LE. It was a joy to drive and frankly I liked it better than the Odyssey. It seemed a bit more refined overall. The Odyssey was noisier inside, especially rows 2&3. However, as this was to replace my wife's car, we agreed this would be her call to make. She liked the Odyssey's body lines, interior, and a few other things better than the Sienna. In the end, I think both the Odyssey and Sienna are winners, so I don't think you can go wrong with either.

I think its a good price because:
MSRP = 33810
Holdback = 2% of MSRP = 676.20
Destination = 670
Invoice = 30627
Mkt Support = 3500
Doc Fee = 0
so Invoice - Holdback + destination -mktsupport + doc fee = 27120.8
So if you are giving getting below 27120.08 before TTL, its a 'good' deal. That said, I don't know if others are getting for it. Good Luck

#20982 of 30577 2009 Odyssey EX-L w/ RES
Nov 15, 2008 (7:44 pm)
Received an offer of $30060 for EX-L w/ RES from one dealer. This is before taxes and such. Another dealer over the phone said that he would beat any offer by $500. What I don't know and have not seen from any recent posts (forgive me from not going through all 1000+ pages) is a price paid for this particular model "out the door". I do ultimately plan to lease. I have found that the current money factor is 0.00161, but from what I have seen from other posts is that the current depreciation rate is about 45%. That seems a little high, but maybe with our current economy, this is now the norm... So, basically what I am asking the other readers & posters of this forum is a good price (Capitalized Cost) to start negotiating with. Thanks!

That seems like a heck of a deal to me. Best I could do was $32,000 which included destination, mudguards, cargo tray, and all season floor mats but NO sales tax and $150 doc fee.
Where did you find this deal? Obviously these guys are willing to sell below invoice and holdback at that price.

There is a 3500 incentive right now on 2008, but not 2009s. They're willing to sell below incentive, minus 3500, minus whatever else depending on how many vans they have to sell. A 2009 will cost more but will be worth more when you trade it in if you're planning to only keep the van for a few years. The 2009 also has a power liftgate, which I did NOT want because if you have it you can't cram the last bit of luggage in there as easily. I bought a 2008 because I am planning on keeping it until the wheels fall off. I haven't take delivery yet, but when I do I'll post on my experience, which so far has been excellent.
#20985 of 30577 2008 Odyssey EX-L Res + Nav
Nov 16, 2008 (2:44 pm)
I am headed down to the dealer tomorow to hopefully purchase a 2008 Odyssey with RES and NAV for 28704 + fees. I will post my experience after I complete the deal. Any clues what I should ask for in price on the 8 year 120k mile warranty?
