Color choice may be a problem on a 2013 with very limited stock. Call/ email today a handful of dealerships to see who has your model and color 2013. If you find your model that is the dealerships you negotiate with on both years.
keep a eye on Mistersc post he is at invoice price and maybe below due to flex cash money on a 2014 model. We need to ask what dealership he is dealing with.

I'm sure you will be pretty pissed off if you drive 90 mins to find out they deceived you and did not add the 790 dest/charge onto the deal. Always cover yourself with pricing. Dealers have a funny way of forgetting certain price items making it look like a honest mistake hoping to get you in the showroom.

Found the information. Just sharing with the forum-
Doc Stamp = State Stamp tax only if taking the loan
Non Tax Fees = Estimate for DMV
Taxable Fees (estimated) = Title + tire tax
Accessories = Dealer Options Added
DTA = fee for financing

Your in a good Negotiating position with 8 dealerships. Decide on a target price to buy taking in each dealerships doc fee charge. let them fight and compete for your business.. Let them chase you.......... not the other way around. Hold out til you get your target price to buy making your best deal at the END of this month. Read blue's comments on buying/ negotiations his comments will help you secure the best deal.......................Good luck

After reviewing your prices, here is my breakdown:
Below invoice: $400.83
Sales prices + Doc fees: $28,467.17
Below invoice: $184
Sales prices + Doc fees: $28,774
Below invoice: $319
Sales prices + Doc fees: $28,639
Dealer 4,5, and 6
Not good deals
Below invoice: $404
Sales prices + Doc fees: $28,564.95
Below invoice: $151
Sales prices + Doc fees: $28,717
Just looking at the numbers, dealer 1 seems to be in the lead with the best sales price even if you include their $599 doc fees. Dealer 7 has the second best price and is about $98 more than dealer 1, and their doc fees are higher than dealer 1.
If you could get at least $600 below invoice to cancel out the doc fees then that will be a good deal. As Brian said in his post, you should let dealers fight for you. Pit them against each other and see who will give you the lowest sales price. Wait till the last 2 days of the month to strike a deal. I would recommend using Brian's BUY TODAY offer, once you have determined a reasonable price to offer below invoice.
Do not let anyone play games with you. It appears that you are an informed buyer, so knowledge is power. Make sure the dealership has the car on the lot in your color and trim, before you head over to seal the deal. I would also recommend making sure that you have a backup dealership, in case your first choice does not work out.
Time is on your side here. You mentioned that you were in the market for 2 such cars. If you plan to buy from the same dealership, you might be able to negotiate an even better deal.

In order to better evaluate your deal, you should also provide the amount being charged for these fees:
Non Tax Fees
Taxable Fees (estimated)
Are all dealers charging these fees?
