The installed price was $576, which was quite a markup over the website.
Yeah, a couple days later I verified that the fog lights are dealer-installed only, so the finance guy was being, well, not straightforward on that point, to be charitable.
The fog lights go on a separate stalk? That's whack. I have a 2005 Mazda 5, and the foglights are just one more rotary switch on the stalk. I think Honda would be better off putting in a single wiring harness with fog light connections in it and a blank spot on the stalk to slap in the switch.
Thanks for the info on the fog lights, anyway. I may still consider getting them. Waiting for a good foggy night around here so I can go out for a drive and decide if I really need them or not in this car. They're very nice in my Mazda 5, but the Odyssey seems to throw a larger light pool and from a higher angle than the low-to-the-ground Mazda, so I may not need the fog lights as much.
Good luck on your deployment, and thank you for your service to our country.

This board won't let me name my specific salesman,.
If you want to provide an e-mail address, I can send my salesman's name to you directly. You can create a temporary e-mail accouunt on gmail, and then just abandon the address after I send you the Info.

Thanks for the well wishes. That means they are charging about $250 in labor, which here would equate to about 2 1/2 hours. That's not all that bad. Your labor rate is probably less than here because I just verified with our service department that it's a 3 1/2 hour install, and our price is just over $600 for the fog lights on the Odyssey.
As I said, labor is a little rediculous in Atlanta. Every dealership I've worked for, Honda or not, is over $90 an hour.

Wow, and I thought the prices we were doing was stupid. $1200 under invoice including locks, guards, pinstripe, and edge guards is just rediculous. That's a little over $400 in adds including the labor installation.
#21935 of 30576 Getting a loan on an '08 EX-L
Mar 16, 2009 (7:50 pm)
It looks like people have gotten 2.9% on an auto loan with the 3500 dealer cash on the EX-L. Is that right? I've got credit scores in the 800's. What's the best you think I can do?
Also, should I wait until after settling on a price for the car to haggle about financing or should it be haggled for as a package deal?
#21936 of 30576 Re: 2009 Odyssey EX quotation in Minnesota [promoks]
Mar 17, 2009 (9:47 am)
Yesterday I got a quote of $29849 for EX-L from Buerkle Honda!!. This is $1099 more than your EX-L/RES quote!. The dealer argued that your quote is before 3/7 but I don't believe it. If possible, can you forward the quote to me? my email is ohwimgcgmail.com. Thanks a lot.

30000 even seems to be a fantastic price,
I am trying to get quotes via email and the best I have managed so far is 30550 in South Bay.
Seems like there is a rush to buy Ody's before Aprils Sales Tax increase here in CA.
Any chance the dealer cash rebate would move lower in April from $2500 it is now?
If you have the chance car to pass on contact details of the dealer you had your deal done with

My dealer also didn't believe a quote of 30K flat for a EXL R/N. If your dealer was closer, I'd give them my business for sure.
