We are also looking for black on black tech Entertainment as really wanted Blue on black but no one has it. I haven't brought my car to have them see it.
I told them Kbb says it is in the good range of 3800 so i told them 3500 and won't go a penny below.
I have used the angle of buying two and one dealer Prime is working on it so they told me..
I brought the car to Herb Connolly and they were going to offerus more toward a 2006 we were going to buy. I brought the car to Acura Peabody and they first were going to give 1500 then sales slob went back and ok we can give you 2500 after us waiting for the typical "I have to ask my manager routine".
Now I told Acura Boston and Prime it is worth 3500 all day long.
and they said oh ok.
But before i go to finally sign I will make them send me a fax agreement to show all of the costs before we walk through the door. That i have a firm offer without bringing the car and then have them say now that we have seen it deal"/

Hello You should pay what you want to pay. I mean since you are a woman the dealer will probably take advantage of you. I know this sounds biased but in this industry they try to push things over on you since they figure"what is she going to know".
One example the sales rep was telling my wife he couldn't go lower than the 300 dollars that he said .I got up and went to the sales mnger and it was no problem. My wife was really upset by that.I could clearly see their tactics by sitting and listening to their crap.
I would try going to different dealers and getting their best price through the internet first as it has worked in my favor. Now the dealers are calling me and the price has now come down over a thousand dollars from what they said was bottom line.!
The other thing i will make you aware of is that the Sport package has the expensive shock system and if you intend to keep this vehicle beyond warranty repairs will be costly.
That's why for ourselves have decided on the tech rather than sport.
Not trying to dissuade you from your purchase but telling the fact.

Feb 14, 2008 (6:40 pm)
I can confirm that is in fact true. 2.9% for 60 months starts tomorrow.
#6093 of 12875 2.9 for 60 months
Feb 14, 2008 (7:10 pm)
Is that nationwide or regional? Do you know the expiration, i.e. just for 4 days or a longer program? Finally, does that cancel out the $2k factory to dealer cash on the TL? A TL at invoice less $2k at 2.9% for 60 months would be an attractive proposition; then again, so would an MDX Tech even at invoice..

Hi Harmstrong and WCD,
Congratulations to you guys. Even I haven't step into water yet, I like to see buyers feel stronger like you to play this in car dealers' market, win a better deal, and buy a happy ending. Best wishes to you two!
Is that 41990 OTD or they will add fees later? Any accessories you guys going throw in? Where you get that 2.9% 60 months policy? Please keep me posted when you guys reach the final deal. My email is ffengfyahoo.com I may follow up later.

Thanks frank but by no means is this a done deal. The 41,900 is not OTD. There will be a document fee and of course sales tax and plates. I will post final numbers once I close the deal.
I do not have any information on the 2.9% rate other than it starts tomorrow in MA. All of the MA dealers are offering the rate.
I'm planning to install all of the accessories myself.
#6096 of 12875 2008 MDX Tech/Entertainment
Feb 14, 2008 (9:42 pm)
Could someone tell me how much they paid for a 2008 MDX with Tech/Entertainment package in the Los Angeles/Ventura area. I called Acura 101 in Calabasas and the salesman was arrogant stated that they sell only for MSRP for 46K. I couldn't put with that annoying discussion, I pretty much dropped the line.
This is my first post so please forgive me if this information is elsewhere.
Thanks in advance.
