did the manufacturer really
withdraw the $2000 rebate and replace it with
a $800 rebate? Or, the $2000 rebate is still
available to the dealers
I don't know that we ever got confirmation that the dealers did get a $2,000 incentive for the VP. I searched the previous posts here and didn't find anything to that effect.
It seemed like the dealers got $2,000 on higher trim lines like the EX-L V6, because numerous people bought those cars at significant prices below invoice.
It's possible that Honda didn't find it financially beneficial to pay out $2,000 for a car that costs a lot less and for a car that may have been in shorter supply.
We know they are getting $800 for the VP now, so this may be why your quote is lower than before Sep 4th.

I think VP's did have a 2k dealer cash bonus, I bought one for 2500 under invoice.

I stopped by the local Honda dealer this afternoon and the '08 in the showroom had a dealer pack ("appearance package" ) of $700 plus an ADM of $3K over Monroney.
Walked out to the back lot and the '08's there only had the $700 pack over MSRP. "Oh, we've got to change these" was the reply. Fair enough... They are free to ask whatever they think the market will bear. Basic Supply and Demand 101.
Interestingly enough, all the I4's on the lot were J-VIN (Japan) and the V6's were all Ohio made.
Maybe this is a West Coast thing... I'm in the SF Bay Area. It would be interesting to see if the rest of the country gets J-VIN I4 Accords.

Just bought 2007 Accord EXL V6 Auto from VIP Honda in NJ. Paid $22375+destination charge+tax+title+doc. fee, is this good deal? $22375 is best price I can get now, I called 4 to 5 different car dealers and no one can offer lower than $22375.

The I4's at my dealer here in Michigan were also built in Japan.

You heard it here first.
08 Accord looks like a Hyundai Sonata, it will be a BUST!
by this time next year Honda will be discounting like the 07.
