ezcastillo - I know a dealer in Denver whose initial bid was only $34,700 for the 2011 model with RES and I believe invoice pricing is higher on the new models. The N. Colorado quotes seem a little high.
What I ended up doing (I just purchased my 2011 Touring last Saturday) is to log on to Honda's website, then start soliciting quotes from everyone in the area. I took the lowest two, then set a target price below the initial bids to see if either would meet it.
If you live in Ft. Collins or thereabouts, then it may be too much of a drive, but by far the lowest bidder in the area for me was Front Range Honda in south Colorado Springs. There's a guy named Shawn (719-439-1954) there who hooked me up with a price that was $1,300 below the average bidding price for the area.
I live in Castle Rock, but even called NM and TX dealers to see if they'd beat that price and no one was close.
If you contact him, tell him "Colin" sent you. I said I'd spread the word about the deal I got (he literally was the best by over $1,000) if he hooked me up with kickbacks for accessories.

if you can wait then wait by all means, remember price on new car model only goes down, NEVER go up period, the more you wait the more you should save. By end of November I think most model must discount at least 3k off of MSRP (some dealers already done so by now, you can get Touring 3-4k off now in some states).

jedijood, Definitely buy the 2011 so you get some benefit from trading so soon, like getting the new body style, etc.. The 2010 is already the last generation, and when you get new car fever again in two years, you will get more for a 2011 than a 2010. Plus, the 2010 will look just like your 2008. Also, unless money is no object, you might consider selling the 2008 on your own. The dealers are going to take you for a ride on the trade. I hope you come out okay on the transaction, but trading every two years or so is pretty expensive. Sorry to get all "Dave Ramsey" here, but every year you continue to drive the 2008 the lower your overall transportation costs are. You will be spending a lot to get the power doors you want. Good luck.

The dealer I am talking about is actually DCH in Paramus. DCH Old Bridge said they didn't have any plain EXL in stock when I called over the weekend and didn't really want to talk price unless I would take an RES version. Guess I'll give them another shot even though it seems like we might be getting the same price. Going to give NJ dealers a few more days to try and match Weymouth in Massachusetts, $30499 + $780 destination. Also much lower doc + title fees ($389) with that dealer; I wonder if this is a state thing? Anyone know what they should cost in NJ?
How are you guys getting them to deal with you in real numbers? Everyone keeps giving me monthly prices which are a pain to compare. Should I not mention leasing?
#26876 of 30569 Offers from NJ Dealers
Nov 08, 2010 (7:26 pm)
I see a lot of posts regarding PA/NJ dealers, I thought I would share my latest offers. I plan on finalizing an order this Wednesday.
Piazza Phl - 40,600 + 123 dest (dest incl)
AutoSport - 39,907 + 780 dest + 259 doc
Planet - 40,870 + 398 doc (dest incl) - getting kind of a slimy feeling from these guys
DCH Academy - 40,658 + 780 dest + 249 doc
Just based on professionalism & being forthcoming with numbers via eamil AutoSport and DCH Academy will likely be my 1st stops.
Any opinions out there?

In my opinion it is best to leave the finances out of the negotiation until last minute. I am not familiar with leasing though, and I know there some extra variables there. But I would think you would want to start with the lowest cost for the vehicle and then work the lease numbers from there.
