Brian, I agree with you 100%, you get your best price when the dealer knows you are ready to buy, but how does the dealer know you are serious if it's all by email? That's why I still maintain you will get your best possible price (though that price will differ based on each person's negotiating skills) in person.
btw, while shopping for my last two cars, I took along my Kindle and showed it to my salesman. Told him I would catch up on my reading while I waited for the sales manager. That put them on the defensive and I never waited more than two minutes to get feedback on an offer or a visit by a sales manager.

I realize your credit rating is already low, but to protect it from going lower, I suggest you confirm with the leasing company that the dealer paid off your lease. You don't want to find out the dealer's accounting clerk is on maternity leave as your credit rating drops further.

You have an absolutely excellent deal especially with the navi. While I had a decent invoice price, I had to pay for the assessories. He simply would not budge on throwing anything in including mats.
Part of the issue in my region (Long Island) is that cars are in high demand after the hurricane so we don't have as much room for negotiation as I feel other regions do. (sigh).

I think you probably did just fine.
Crosstours have been pretty much a flop for Honda and the market for used ones can't be strong. Nice cars but limited in utility and horrible rear vision.
Yeah, if you can throw some extra money at that balance once in awhile it'll help and doing so will REALLY help your credit score.

$28,299 OTD is a great price. I don't think anyone will find this price is Maryland where the tax rate is a lot higher. I would say that if anyone can negotiate this same car down to below $29,000 OTD, that would be the price to beat!

No such thing as a "V-4" unless you are talikng about a 1960's Saab.
All four holes are in a straight line!

All your emails are sent out on the last day of the month.
Emails should say that if you will meet my offer price i will buy today with a credit card deposit.
i like to speak directly to the Internet/ Sales manager. if we agree on price he then faxes to me the buyers order with all the vehicle info and price. Once you both sign buyers order...... its a legal document. You now pick up car when its ready from dealership and pay balance off when picking up car.
This method does not work with a trade in or if you need dealer financing. Anyone i've helped buy this way in these forums the last 16 yrs will tell you that this is the fastest, easiest ,and stress free way of buying..
