Find a comp on this website below, but use the tax structure in NJ. That'll be a good target for you to hit.

Don't get me wrong this is your money and your choice, I got similar car back in 2009 and paid significantly less. I also bought it almost 3 years ago so I have very good idea about needed maintenance. Comments below just my personal opinion. Let's look
----GAP: 340 - complete waste of money
(2 years of oil changes - $80
air and in cabin filter replacement, did it myself, Toyota parts- $40
tire rotation - do it every second oil change. )
----8yr/125k: 1463 - You should be able to get same Toyota Platinum warranty close to $1100 (read warranty thread)
Don't know what road conditions where you live but I wouldn't pay $600 for next 2 items (Based on my personal experience I would not use it even if I'd have it)
BTW What tires came with a car Micheline or Bridgestone?

I started the agonizing process of emailing all of the local dealers in the Philadelphia area. I'm looking for the EX and QA packages for a 4 cyl LE. MSRP is 23,710. One dealer quoted me 21800. I found a dealer about 120 miles away that is selling it for 20,500 as their internet price. The dealer that wanted to sell it for 21800 said they would match it. They just tried to clean me out for $1300. Should I try to get them to deal at 20k or is that even too high? Any feedback would be appreciated.

Check out the Edmunds True value pricing - you will see that minus the leather/heated seats the TMV is around 24k. If you consider a 500$ cash back min (even if you are financing) and if you consider 1.5k for leather - you will end up with 25k. (24 + 1.5 - .5). With taxes, titles and dealer fee it will be an extra 1000. you should try negotiation to 25.5 or even better 25k, if you can.
Also, try checking out the extended warranty, GAP, extended maintenance etc
many are worth negotiating into overall price. Remember Toyota is giving 0% APR for 60 months. Good negotiation will help you essentially pay this over 60 months and get solid coverage.
All the best for your vehicle search and buying
PS: I have a Camry 2011 - LE (4Cyl) which I just financed.

Thanks for your inputs.
As I acknowledged, I paid more for the 8/125 and I knew that. The $1100 was before (and BTW I have the $1100 for my Sienna). No dealer in my region was able to do it better.
My wife drives 100 miles (50m one way) on roads which have construction at various points and is planned for the next 3 years. Makes sense to have basic windshield protection and Tire/Wheel. T/W is based on my own experience with a Sienna where I ended up blowing a tire and coughed up 120 bucks.
For 6 years this protection is good and please note that I pay over 60 months. So let's say I have this even in 20 months, I wd have paid 100 to get this deal, and I still have a good deal.
GAP, etc is always for the risk averse person like me. Not getting GAP is sometimes not a wise choice. Once again 5 dollars per month is what I pay on gap.

Looking to purchase a Camry LE in S. Fl. Is it possible to get it for under $18,000? I only want floor mats.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.

I might be tempted to tell the first dealer they had their chance and go with another one. You might not have to drive 120 miles. Just take your quote from the second one and get a slightly better deal at a third dealer. Just try to research them first.
