Have you considered the demo with 2000 miles on it since it's in your color? Might be worth it considering the savings. You would have to get advice from the pros on the board to know what that goes for.
I did close the deal on my EXL with Prime today and traded in my previous baby. I love the new car but am having separation anxiety! I miss her already, but I'm sure that will pass in a few days. I know I'm crazy.
I know Blue had a much better experience at Honda Cars of Boston so that is a better place to start. If you want me to drop Eric an email, I'm happy to do it but i can't guarentee what they will do, especially given how they treated Blue.
If I understand you are asking 24900 with no flex cash since you are financing through DCU. Is that correct? You might be able to get that from Boch if you push and say you are looking at other dealers. Boch initial prices are awful but seem willing to negotiate - I assume they still have a good inventory.
Let me know if you want me to reach out to Prime.
What is youe timing?

Eric and Prime Honda play too many games.

Also, for Prime, using Blue which was a failed deal, and mine which was muddled with a trade will not buy you much as you think. It helped me because Blue's deal was still alive and kicking and it was the end of the month and they were meeting quotas. They keep telling me what a great deal I got and not to tell anyone because there is no way they can do it again. I'm sure there is plenty of showmanship there (since honda cars of boston did the same deal they did for me for blue)...but be forewarned...if they truly have only a few they will be less likely to deal at the beginning of Sept.
Plus I'm not sure I'm their favorite customer.
But like I said, i'm very happy to drop Eric an email on your behalf. Pay if forward for all the help I got from this board!

Congrats on your purchase.
Did Prime honor their original price? Did you get any flex cash with the deal?

Yes, I got the flex cash and it was for the price we discussed at our initial meeting. No funny business, no oh we have to add $100 for this or that. And the car only had 42 miles on it (I was worried it would have lots of miles if they had to find it and drive it from somewhere).
Today was long but it went well. Eric did a great job today as I asked him to go over all the controls in the car again with me and I took it for a short test drive. And the financing takes awhile. So I tried a few people's patience today and they did a great job.
The worse thing was when the manager said the car would be in on Tuesday (I bought it on Friday) and when I called on Tuesday all excited for my car I was then told it could take 4-10 days. I was pissed to say the least. Why didnt they just tell me that when i bought it on Friday 8/30? To have expectations set and then dashed was awful. But I said I just hope i have it for the weekend and he did make that happen.
I'm glad it worked out with Prime because I got some free oil changes and they are closer than going to Everett.
I don't blame you for being pissed at Prime. I hate Bernardi for how they treated me when I went in there a week earlier. I decided if you go into Prime you have to be strong and firm or they will eat you alive. They are high pressure and fast talkers for sure...but most car dealerships are.

Congratulation cars12345 on your purchase.
Boch doesn't have my color in that trim level.
I thought about the demo car, but not willing to go for it.
Yes, you can drop an email to Eric. My price is 24900 with no flex cash. The color I am looking for is Crystal Black and Black.
I am also looking forward to hear from Honda cars of Boston. Whoever says okay and have the car with them would get my business.
My timing is 9AM to 6PM.
Appreciate your help on this. Thank you.

It seems to be, though their online inventory shows 5 elx they said only one car available with different color to me. may be trying to put low inventory pressure on me.
Lets see what do they reply for cars12345 email.

Their online inventory shows 3 black and black elx models. 2 with V4 and 1 with V6. Even if one of the V4 is demo car, the other should be available to sell. But they tried to sell me the Champagne Frost which is also available in the online inventory.
