Invoice is not lowest price. You also have "hold backs" $700, then also
Consider the car is leftover by September take off a few grand more.
So Karl might be 30,000 on exl v6 but a good quote in September for a 2012 accord is 25,495 excluding tax and tags

That's helpful information. Any way to really calculate what a good target offer would be, or is that just a guess? With the 2013 Accord redesign, I feel like incredible deals could be had, but have no idea what exactly that translates to.

The 25495 was an actual quote from dealer here in downingtown PA. Do as much research as you can before you walk in the showroom. I found email a much better way to negotiate because it takes out the personal emotion and their sales tactics. Not everyone is a confident Negotiator- I am not. But when I write I can careless what he/she thinks about my words. Best tactic is to play them against another dealer. Give them a specific number you received so they can beat it. Keep the conversation going - over a few weeks even. The longer your conversation the more serious he'll know you are and the more willing he will offer you the lowest price. You should have the price worked out before you walk in the showroom. Real power in negotiating over email. And if you don't feel respected over the Internet then just imagine how you will be treated in the showroom. When another dealer can't match the price then you have a good offer. What car model & trim are you looking for?

Yea, that makes sense. I'm looking at the Accord SE, but I've seen some lower prices on the EX and EX-L. Basically, from SE up, whatever the best deal I can get is. I'm targeting the SE cause I wouldn't imagine it's good for negotiation to have multiple trims in the discussion, but I don't technically know that for sure. Realistically, I'm hoping to get it done sooner than later because as 2013's come out there will be great deals on 2012 to be had, but stock will be depleting as well, so options like color will become more difficult to obtain.
