You have done a good job ($500 under invoice). What about doc fee ? Make sure it is removed. Make sure that there is no dealer-added accessories. They typically charge a ridiculous amount for these acc.
Shoot for $750 to $1000 under invoice plus TTL (with no doc fee). You could wait till Jan 30 or Jan 31. It appears that dealers generally try to get improve their sale numbers towards the end of the month.
Aggressive pricing depends upon the city where you live (number of dealers present in the zone). For example: Bay Area, CA pricing is pretty aggressive compared to a small city in MT or WY).
Good luck !

Boch Honda in Massachusetts. I've been in contact with 10 dealerships and they are the only one to beat Weymouth. I'm still about a month away from purchase.

#28202 of 32215 Doc Fee's update
Jan 26, 2013 (4:15 pm)
I emailed 50 Honda dealerships this morning in the New york, New jersey, Delaware, and M.A. area asking each dealership if they would remove there doc fee charge to earn my business.
So far 30 have responded with either a flat out No and alot went into detail how there doc fee charge is on the bill so everybody has to pay it.
I suggest any body who is willing to buy from these dealerships should find out exactly what there doc fee's are and:
Adjust the offer price accordingly
Jan 30th is a good start date.
Jan 31th is ideal and the best day.

Should be able to get that car for 22,300-22,500 easily plus pinstripe 75, wheel locks 36, cargo tray 70, mud guards 70, and remote start 200-300 depending on type and what you need it to do, so before taxes but after destination 22,700 or 22,800 including that outrageously high dealer fee of 699. You need to shop around, my opinion is your being taken for $2,700-$3,000. Shop around and minus the accessories your should pay 22,300 to 22,500. Buy the accessories online at college hills Honda and save hundreds there as well. Whatever they end up charging in dealer or doc fees you need to subtract from your sale price to be able to compare apples to apples. So in your case aim to purchase the car for around 21,700 to 21,900 with the pinstripe only, buy the other accessories online to save money. What state are you in?

Thanks for the reply back gameshowlover. I live in Florida. I walked away from the deal...as far as the accessories, it came with pin stripe ($119), pro pack which is wheel locks, cargo tray, and mud guards ($499), tint ($279), and my one "want it but don't need it" item remote start $759. I asked why they were so high compared to the Honda E Store price and he said that it was because of labor costs. Well here's the online e store price with installation: remote start ($354.35) and remote start attachment (($120.67), wheel locks ($57.85), cargo tray ( $114.40), and mud guards ($111.80), which comes to a total of $759.07 + tax. That dealership mark up for accessories is ridiculous!!
